Notion Ink gets more real with mockups
Somehow the design of this changed over the course of a month or so and the Notion Ink Adam now looks like the picture you see above. The company sent in a few renders of the final device to Slashgear and while the old sleek design is gone, the new form looks a bit more robust.
As everyone turns to the iPad and tries to be better than it, Notion Ink sits comfortably with a few welcome features of its own. The battery on this device would be 2-3 times longer than the iPad, making it last for a couple of days without recharging. That’s on regular usage and with the integrated Pixel Qi in use, it would even sport a longer battery life still.
This tablet is also HD capable and can output 1080p with no sweat. The Adam will be able to use its screen to its advantage with tie-ins for digital magazines and comics, a couple of things the iPad doesn’t have in its announced iBookstore.
They seemed to have taken a cue from Camangi and launched an App competition to design software for their tablet. Who knows, if you win here, you’ll see your app in thousands of tablets once the Adam becomes available. And the prize is nothing to scoff at, a cool $1 million.
Wait for more juicy info in the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2010 where lots of mobile manufacturers will be spilling the beans on yet more MIDs, tablets and smartphones.
