India’s iPad challenger – The Adam tablet from Notion Ink

India’s iPad challenger Adam, received favorable initial reviews during its appearance in the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas and was labeled as one of the gadgets to watch out for in 2011.

Adam comes with a 10.1″ touchscreen device, measures 0.6-inch thin and weighs 770 gm and is based on Google’s Android OS.

Adam will integrate two power saving components, nVidia’s Tegra 2 chip and a Pixel Qi screen. Its Lithium-ion battery will provide up to 48 hours standby, 8hrs of high definition video playback or 16hrs of Internet surfing over WiFi. It is therefore expected to give twice the battery life and performance of the iPad.

Notion Ink’s Adam is expected to cost around INR 15,000 or around USD 350 when it is launched.

    So which date is more acurate, teh june date, or the Jan 11th date that has allready passed without shipment? Where did the June date come from?

  8. Adam Ink has received FCC clearance and will probably update the status on the FCC website either today or on Monday. This means that it will start shipping around Wednesday. So you can expect Adam Ink to be available within the week.
