Notion Ink has announced a sequel to its Adam tablet, which right now is being referred to as the Adam II. This is hardly surprising, considering the next generation of the much hyped Adam is already due. Further, a switch of heart in favor of the Texas Instruments OMAP 44xx processor instead of the Tegra 3 chip, which many had initially thought would also be powering the new Adam, has also been confirmed in the company blog. However, predictably, the new Adam II will be running the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Apart from the TI chip, the new Adam II will also be featuring TI components like Wi-Link 7.0 and Phoenix Audio Power Amplifiers.
The first gen Adam tablets came with a NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor along with the Pixel Qi low-power display panel, which has the unique feature of being readable even in direct sunlight.
What Notion Ink is packing in their latest tablet is a feature specifically aimed at developers named “Modular Based Software Architecture.” This feature will allow developers to create their own applications, which the company claims will enable optimum usage of “every single hardware feature in a ‘user customizable’ application.”
Notion Ink blog does provide more details on this and many other issues, though the exact release date or price details of the device are still being kept under wraps.
