The Notion Ink Adam tablet earned a lot of buzz earlier this year as one of the first tablet computers to sport a Pixel Qi display, NVIDIA Tegra 2 graphics, and Google’s Android operating system. The Adam has yet to actually hit the streets, but it’s inching closer to a real product launch and today Notion Ink introduced a new web site for the tablet, complete with detailed specs.
Appropriately, the web site is designed in Adobe Flash — meaning you’ll be able to see it on tablets running Google Android 2.2 and up, but not on the iPad, although Notion Ink does plan to create an HTML-based version fo the web site eventually.
Most of the specs are pretty much what we had expected, but there are a few items of note. First, the tablet will have a SIM card slot with GSM support — which means that in addition to the HSPA modem for data connections you may be able to make phone calls on the Adam tablet.
Second, the tablet will have a 24Whr 3 cell battery. That’s pretty weak by netbook standards, but hopefully you’ll still be able to get all-day battery life out of this little guy thanks to the low power ARM-based processor and optional Pixel Qi screen.
The tablet measures 9.4″ x 6.2″ x 0.5″ and weighs about 1.4 pounds. It has a dual core ARM Cortex A9-based processor with NVIDIA graphics and is available with 16GB or 32GB of flash storage. You also get 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, an HSDPA modem, HDMI output, a microSD card slot, 2 USB 2.0 host ports, and a docking port as well mic and headphone jacks, stereo speakers, and a 3.2MP camera. The Adam also has a 3-Axis accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and A-GPS.
The Pixel Qi display will be available as an option, while a cheaper model will be available with a normal capacitive touchscreen display with a matte finish.
