The Notion Ink Adam tablet made a splash a few years ago (before drowning) with a tablet that offered unusual features that looked great on paper and less great in the real world.

These days the company is producing more conventional-looking tablets in its home country of India. Last month Notion Ink introduced a 10 inch Windows tablet called Cain.

Now Cain has a little brother: Meet the Notion Ink Cain8.

The Cain8 sells for 9,990 Indian Rupees, or about $162 US. It has pretty standard specs for a cheap Windows tablet, including:

  • 8 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display
  • Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core Bay Trail processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 16GB of storage
  • microSD card
  • micro HDMI port
  • micro USB port
  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0

The tablet has a 4000mAh battery for up to 8 hours of run time, 2MP front and rear cameras, and Windows 8 with Bing software plus a 1 year subscription to Microsoft Office 365 Personal.

If those specs sound familiar, that’s because they’re remarkably similar to those for the Insignia Flex tablet which Best Buy is selling for $99… but there may be one thing that helps set Notion Ink’s tablet apart: It has a micro SIM card slot and support for 3G networks.

I doubt we’ll see this tablet offered outside of India anytime soon.

  1. I already got it in Britain, just without the Sim & with 32GB. xD
    Linx 8, they’re just Emdoor rebrands, but it’s not the EM-I8080.
    The Linx 7 & 10, I seemed to be able to find on the Emdoor site, but not the Linx 8, so it might be another manufacturer?

    Oddly the pictures show 2 camera’s on the front & don’t show the hdmi & usb ports

    1. I think it might be a rebranded Meegopad F-8/F/3G, based on camera, SIM, volume and home buttons, and also that Windows logo. The 1GB/16GB version of these is listed at $1-$89 for 1K MOQ.

      1. I just checked the pictures of the Meegopad and that looks very different, lacks the same speakers, micro-sd slot is in completely the wrong place, usb, hdmi & aux are also in different places, buttons are different style, camera is too close to the edge.
        Also bezel around the sides is narrow on the Cain8 and Linx8, Meegopad’s is the same size as the top & bottom.
