Notion Ink tablet first with Pixel Qi display

By on
Shortly after Pixel Qi announced that production was underway for the first batch of its hybrid low-power displays, we now know of an actual product that will carry them: the 10-inch Adam 'smartpad' from Notion Ink. Expected to hit retail shelves in June 2010, this Android-based tablet will pack an Nvidia Tegra T20 chipset capable of 1080p full HD playback and feature a host of connectivity options.

According to a detailed spec sheet obtained by Engadget, these include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, UMTS/HSDPA, and Assisted GPS on the wireless front as well as USB, HDMI, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Battery life is rated at an impressive 48 hours of standby juice, also good for 8 hours of video playback or 16 hours of browsing. There's also a digital compass, accelerometer, proximity, ambient light, and water sensors, a 3MP autofocus camera that can record video, and either a 16 GB or 32 GB SSD for storage -- expandable through an SD memory slot.

The use of a Pixel Qi display and ARM-based processor will allow Notion Ink's Adam to function as either an e-book reader or a fully functional Android-based computer (sans the physical keyboard). An exact price point hasn't been officially announced yet, but Engadget believes the device will land at around $320.
