While the makers of Notion Ink are yet to make up their mind on a specific logo that they feel will take things forward, what has emerged is that the Adam itself has been making steady progress and is rapidly inching closer to its release date. And the latest that Notion Ink has revealed of the Adam is that the tablet has been endowed with some of the best sound systems ever to be found on any tablet device without any external aid. What this means is that the tablet’s inherent speakers itself are competent enough to deliver a superior listening experience so that you may not always need to have your home theater systems or ear plugs on hand for a great sound output.
Another area, an an important one on that for a device to claim true mobility, the Adam is reported to have a battery backup time of a minimum of 15 hours which represents the worst case scenario and a maximum of 2 days which clearly is the best or the ‘very’ best case scenario. However, while this is something that definitely depends on the level of usage of the device or the type of application that is run, a 15 hour backup time is simply great any which way you look at it. For reference, the iPad has a backup time of around 10 to 12 hours while the same for the Galaxy Tab is 7 hours. The elements on the Adam that suck the most power (in decreasing order) as listed are the LCD, Wi-Fi, 3G, Speakers followed by the CPU. But even if the worst case scenario is chosen, 15 hours of runtime on a single charge is welcome on any day while anything more than that is definitely an added plus.
All these further whets our appetite for the real thing and we just wish the Adam reaches market soon so that everyone gets to check it out themselves.
