Notion Ink Adam II teased at India's National Technology Awards
Remember the Notion Ink Adam? We'll forgive you if you don't -- the device fell a bit short of expectations, and news of its successor has been scarce. Save for a few teasing tweets, Notion Ink has kept the project pretty close to its chest. That changed this weekend, however, when the tablet's price and specifications were announced at India's National Technology Awards. According to a press release (after the break) and a pamphlet reportedly given to attendees, the Adam II will sell for 12,000 Indian Rupees (about $217) later this year, packing in a 1.5 Ghz Dual-Core ARM Cortex CPU, twin 2MP cameras, 1GB RAM and up to 10 hours of battery life.
The tablet also boasts a secondary screen, albeit a small one: a monochrome ticker that displays Android notifications on the Adam's book-like spine. HDMI, headphone and a micro USB ports crowd the device's adjacent edges, which wrap around a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 IPS display -- a concession that was apparently made to increase longevity. Specific and international availability was sadly left out of the announcements, but its nice to finally see this project gain some steam.
