Notion Ink has announced plans for a second-generation Adam tablet. The Adam II will have a Texas Instruments OMAP 44xx processor with PowerVR SG5xx graphics and it will run the Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
The original Adam got a lot of attention last year as one of the first devices to ship with an NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor and one of the first to offer an optional Pixel Qi low-power, sunlight readable display. But the Adam was only produced in limited quantities and Notion Ink isn’t exactly a household name at this point
The Adam II probably won’t change that, especially since it won’t exactly be the first tablet with Android 4.0 or a TI OMAP 4 processor. But Notion Ink is aiming for another first.
Notion Ink says the Adam II will have “Modular Based Software Architecture,” which will allow app developers to take advantage of the tablet’s hardware using the company’s development tools.
You can find out more about the new software architecture at the Notion Ink blog.
What we still don’t have is a release date or target price for the next-generation tablet.
