The Adam tablet from Notion Ink is probably the only (sort of) well-known device on the market today that sports a Pixel Qi screen. Nevertheless, we’ve been having the feeling for a while that the California-based startup is preparing something big. That something big has just been revealed to be its next generation of displays, which the company claims are “better than iPad 3 displays”. That is a truly bold statement, considering the fact that Apple’s latest tablet sports a pretty phenomenal 9.7-inch LED-backlit display with IPS technology, an impressive 2048 x 1536 pixels resolution, and a pixel density of [...]
Pixel Qi is a relatively small player in the display technology space, but that’s set to change. Makers of a particular novel screen technology that combines the best of LCD (full color, power-hungry) and e-ink (outdoor visibility and low power consumption) display technologies, Pixel Qi is in active discussions with several major OEM’s to get their tech on board the latest generation of Android tablets. Currently, their displays are only on Notion Ink Adam Android tablets.
Pixel Qi is currently working with ZTE to re-release the ZTE Light, a 7-inch Android tablet that was released last year, with a Pixel Qi display. While we aren’t necessarily [...]
We’ve been covering the development of the Adam by Notion Ink fairly closely. Only recently did we announce that this device will ship with Android 2.2 out-of-the box. Unfortunately, we are no longer expecting this device to land in Q2 of this year, primarily because it’s gone already. However, Notion Ink have now officially released the pricing scheme for their tablet device. For a cool $498 you can pick up this tablet with with Pixel Qi display, WiFi, 3G, GPS, and a Tegra 2 processing chip. If you throw away the 3G or Pixel Qi display you can cut the price down to $449, or further still if you drop both [...]
Notion Ink’s highly desirable Tegra-powered, Pixel Qi-packing Android tablet has a new name, a tentative launch date, and an impressive but not yet confirmed price. Filling in the blanks, the Notion Ink tablet will be given the name Adam, is expected to launch in June 2010 in the US, Europe, and India, and will debut for the ultra-low price of 15,000 rupees ($321USD). All these aforementioned facts are still speculation and June 2010 is bit longer than we would like to see for a tentative launch (those projected dates almost always slip), but it would be well worth the six months wait if India-based Notion Ink can meet that proposed price point.

Notion Ink couldn’t wait until CES and let everyone in on a little secret – it is a producing a not-yet-named Android-powered smartpad that will knock your socks off. The smartpad will feature the eight-core Tegra T20 processor (rumored Tegra 2 processor?) and will be the first device to use the new Pixel Qi transflective display (10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixels) which will optimize your display based upon the ambient light conditions. While indoors, the display will crank itself up to full colors and brightness. When moved outside, the display will reduce its colors and operate in transflective mode and finally when in full sunlight, the device will drop the colors even [...]
