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.
