The Notion Ink Adam tablet is nearing release, and the team has already started cranking out some units based on the final product design. Founder Rohan Shravan has posted a brief video and some additional photos on the company blog, and they offer a better look at the Adam than the tiny photos released over the weekend.

Overall the finished product doesn’t look that different from the prototype Notion Ink was showing off at CES in January. But while that model was a hand-carved wood model, the final version features a custom molded design with a camera that can be rotated to face forward or back, capacitive touch buttons on the side that light up, and some of the best hardware available for an Android tablet right now.

That includes a dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of 667MHz DDR2 RAM, and a 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel capacitive touchscreen display. There will also be an option for a Pixel Qi low power transflective display which can function as a full color LCD display or in a high contrast, black and white mode for reading outdoors or indoors making use of ambient light, much like an E Ink display.

You can check out the video and find a few more photos after the break, and check out the Notion Ink blog for more details.

  1. I would also rather have MeeGo, that should, in theory, run normal Linux apps as well. (for example: If you attach a keyboard and mouse you can use even OpenOffice to edit documents.)

  2. I will buy one with Qi panel immediately when available. It will replace my asus netbook. Only question is can I play netpoker with it, if not then I will hack it.

  3. I’m seriously considering buying one. I like the design. I like some of the nice features like the camera that turns and the availability of models with the Pixel Qi screen. Also, I plan on having another laptop so it is not an either/or issue for me. I’d like both; I have the means, so I will HAVE both.

  4. I think the design of these slates/pads really need to be considering how a keyboard can be attached to make it into a netbook/notebook for easier travel and usage when you do need a keyboard. Who wants to throw a bunch of bits and peaces together “just in case I need it?”

  5. Same here, rather would have a full power of Linux (MeeGo, Ubuntu).

    Still, great to see them progress!
