Hardware: Notion Ink Adam
December 21, 2010 § Leave a comment
I’ve been following the progress of the Notion Ink Adam for almost a year now and can’t wait for it to release. I contemplated pre-ordering one but decided against it. I’ll wait for some reviews to come out and make my mind up then as we are going to be seeing a lot of tablets coming out in the coming months following CES 2011. The Adam however does look like a fantastic device and I have been waiting for a good Android tablet for a long time now. The Adam has a 10.1 inch capacitive multi-touch screen that comes in two flavors, an LCD version and a Pixel QI version. The Pixel QI version looks very interesting as you’ll be able to read your books and work in sunlight unlike the LCD screens that are near impossible to use under those conditions. It’s powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 250 Dual Core Cortex A-9 processor and comes with 1GB DDR2 RAM and 1GB SLC. It supports WLAN – 802.11 b/g/n, MicroSD, HDMI, USB 2.0 and mini USB as well as a sim card slot. The interesting thing about this tablet for me is that it can apparently also run Ubuntu, now that Ubuntu has full multi-touch support. This could be a great device for those of us who love Ubuntu depending on how well Ubuntu runs on it.
