MWC 2010: Move Over iPad, Make Way For Adam

The Apple iPad has disappointed many and maybe the 'Adam' is just the thing that will attract those looking for a bit more from their 'tablets'.

Developed by Indian company Notion Ink, the Adam runs on NVIDIA's Tegra T20 chipset and Android. It supports 1080p Full HD video playback, has integrated WiFi, Bluetooth and UMTS/HSDPA, A-GPS, a digital compass, accelerometer and proximity, ambient light and water sensors. And yes it does have a 3-megapixel autofocus camera with video recording support and supports Flash. Connectivity options include USB, HDMI, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microphone input.

The Adam is quite slim measuring 6.3 x 9.8 x 0.6 inches and weighing 770 gms. It has 16GB or 32GB of onboard storage and uses the Pixel Qi transflective display.

Notion Ink's Adam will allow 8hrs of HD video playback and 16hrs of internet surfing over WiFi.

Pricing hasn't been announced but is expected to be revealed at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Notion Ink is the brain child of Rohan Shravan an engineering graduate from IIT Kharagpur.
