Notion Ink shows off Adam tablet, now with specs
The new Adam tablet from Notion Ink inches a step closer to reality for us with a demo as well as some revelation on its specs. SlashGear got a preview of the touchscreen device at the Mobile World Congress, though only via a video.

- 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, 3G+HSDPA
- 3.2MP 180-degree swiveling webcam

- 16 hours battery life (for HD video playback)

The India-based company also packs in an accelerometer, light sensors and GPS though the config will change depending on the region where it will be sold. There’s also ebook software bundled, FBReader if the picture above is accurate, and an ecosystem of apps will also be available.
What interests me is the backside trackpad which I guess is for controlling a mouse without touching the screen, which should make it easier to use while holding it on the go. No details yet on when it will be sold and how much but maybe the next tech event will flesh out more information about this iPad challenger.
