If you’ve been following IntoMobile for a while, you might remember my fanboy tendencies that surrounded Notion Ink’s Adam before it was released. The combination of the then-powerful NVIDIA Tegra 2 and Pixel Qi display made the Adam one of the most unique tablets around. Then the harsh reality was made clear. The Adam was full of bugs, shipped with a less than fantastic software UI and was a big “miss”. Well, whether the world asked for another or not, Notion Ink is at it again with the Adam II.
Like the original, the Adam II ships with a few unique features that set it apart from just about anything else we’ve ever seen. The most notable is a secondary display found on the spin of the tablet that display notifications ad contextual data. That alone may be enough for some to be interested in the tablet, but the rest of the specs aren’t as interesting. The Adam II ships with a 10.1 inch display (1280×800), 1.5Ghz dual-core Cortex A9 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, 3.15 Megapixel front and rear cameras, 6,000 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2.
Unfortunately, if you were looking to grab one of these and don’t live in India, you’re out of luck for now. Available in WiFi-Only and WiFi+3G options, the Adam II runs for Rs. 16,499 and Rs. 18,999.
Notion Ink certainly has a knack for bringing unique features to the table(t), but we’re more concerned about the bad taste it left in our mouths from its previous tablet.
