We asked you a little over a month and a half ago, whether Notion Ink’s ‘Adam’ would be a sufficient Android alternative to the iPad. We then received an overwhelming response, so we got a little bit of a hint that you’d all like to be kept in the loop about it as well as other Android Tablets. In keeping with that, we have some Tablet news! Hit the break to get into it.

Now, the SMH had a bit of a write up on their site today about upcoming Windows Tablets and such, but they also included some cool news about Android Tablets!

โ€œWe anticipate a number of Android tablets and we will see many and lesser-known brands built on the Android platform because it is an open source platform and can be used on any sort of hardware.” – Foad Fadaghi, research director at Telsyte.

It then follows with some even better news. The Notion Ink ‘Adam’ will be hitting stores (namely MobiCity, being an official supplier) in the coming months. No prices have been released yet.

For those unsure of the Adam packs the following:

  • Nvidia Tegra2 CPU (1GHz – Dual Core)
  • 10″ capacitive display (Pixel Qi)
  • Camera
  • USB
  • 16/32GB Memory
  • 802.11b/g WiFi
  • 3G (HSPA+)
  • HDMI
  • Stereo Speakers
  • Much, much more..

So, anybody after one of these for Christmas? I certainly know I’m excited about it. I also hope to be able to review one of these bad boys on release.

    Asked a rep at Mobicity when I would be able to drop a preorder for one of these and he said they’re still working out availability with the supplier. This is pretty much a definite lock for me, barring some manufacturing catastrophe. Might have to get a Streak to tide me over though, the wait is killing me!

    Adding it to the radar!

    I’m venting here because on their blog no one replies to me. ๐Ÿ™ Apple announces and releases within the span of a month. There are rumours and suddenly there it is. Just like Google did with Nexus One. Don’t announce a device like half a year ago and then just keep us waiting man. Notion Ink I was really excited in April. Then slowly excited turned to impatience and now no interest. Its like if I said I have in my possession a tape of Miranda Kerr “playing” with Scarlett Johansson. At first, you’ll be like WHOA DUDE THAT’S AWESOME… Read more ยป

    I agree with you mate, that’s the thing I also hate. So many things demoed and featured but all way before they are finished or ready to be released. Apple are good in that sense. They are tight-lipped, so at least you don’t know until you need to know.. and by then you know it will soon be real.

    Though I think you need to lay off the p0rn… your rage on that Miranda v Scarlett thing makes me wonder how big your forearm muscles are… hahahaaa!

    Notion Ink is doing a really bad job of keeping interest alive. I read about their device a long time ago. Really long time ago and they said June is the target date. Still no news of an official date – it’s like a device that’s always ‘coming soon’. Soon would be a month or two. Not half a year to a year. That’s ‘coming later’. I want a decent Android slate just for at night when I wanna do some reading (news, books, whatever) while lying down. And you’ll be surprised how bad the Android tablet/slate market is.
