The folks at Notion Ink just sent me a few photos and videos of the company’s upcoming Adam Tablet, showing off some of the device’s coolest features. The Adam sports a Pixel Qi display which looks great in high contrast/black and white mode in direct sunlight. Indoors it features full color saturation and can handle video playback quite nicely — including Adobe Flash video.

Adobe Flash Player 10.1 isn’t widely available for Google Android yet, but this morning Adobe announced that had made Flash (and Adobe AIR) available to select partners already, with general availability coming soon. Update: Yup, Notion Ink confirms that the demo below is showing Flash Player 10.1, complete with hardware acceleration for the NVIDIA Tegra chipset.

If you check out the video below, you’ll see that the Adam Tablet is already able to play Flash video including a movie trailer from YouTube.

The second and shorter video shows the 3.2MP webcam on the tablet, which can rotate 180 degrees to face the front or back of the device, allowing you to snap photos as if you were carrying an oversized point and click camera, or do video chat with the camera facing your head.

You can check out the videos after the break. The videos are showing the 12.6mm thick version of the tablet. You can also find more photos at Technoholik.

  1. Such a great device. I am forgetting the iPad completely.

    Brad, you statred Liliputing for netbooks. After a while, you included culv machine. Merely suggesting, you should put a section in exclusively for Smartbooks and Tablets. It looks cleaner if you can sub categorize them.

    It looks messy now with netbooks, culv, tablets, smartbooks etc all put together.

    Btw, thank you for emphasising recently on Smartnooks and Tablets.

  2. I need this in a notebook. I wonder if Pixel Qi has a deal with Google – isn’t Google working on a netbook?

  3. Here’s to hoping they eventually make an even cheaper model with no HDMI out, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth, Camera and whatever sensors they’ve crammed into it.

    1. The base model is already set to be cheaper then the ipad . . . what else could you want. The reason why it is so cool is that it has all that stuff.

    1. Notion Ink is working on deals with carriers to determine pricing and
      availability. It’s not clear yet if/when it will be available as a
      standalone device.
