We’ve posted many articles lately about the upcoming iPad 2 and the Notion Ink Adam tablet. Among recent posts were the unboxing pictures of the Adam and also a preview experience, and today we brought you news on a release date for the iPad 2.
We’ve also taken a look at the iPad 2 vs. the Motorola Xoom and also the Motorola Xoom vs. the Notion Ink Adam, but what about the Notion Ink Adam vs. the iPad 2? Here at OSM we’ve made no secret of our enthusiasm for the Notion Ink Adam, an innovative device from an innovative set-up, but although realistically it can’t hope to compete with the iPad 2 on sales, such is the might of Apple, is it actually a better device?
Although we know specs for the Notion Ink Adam it’s difficult to make a straight comparison with the iPad 2 as all the specs for that are as yet unspecified. However a comparison of specs for Adam and the original iPad can be seen on International Business Times in an article comparing the two by Elias Samuel, while you can read all the rumors of what we’ve heard so far about the iPad 2 in our iPad 2 rumor roundup from OSM’s Maddy Rowe.
Over on Device Mag, Leo Xavier asks the question of whether the Notion Ink Adam could be an iPad killer and looks at what makes the Adam so noteworthy. First off there’s the 10-inch PixelQi display which gives an excellently sharp picture, although Xavier notes the colors appeared a little faded when compared to the original iPad. The Eden user interface is also seen as a big plus point for the Notion Ink Adam and it enables the use of applications in a completely new way, however it’s noted that a user would need to get used to it.
The rubbarized curved upper edge on the Adam also picks up praise for making the device easy to hold but one area it is definitely lacking in at the moment is apps although Notion Ink has plans for its own app store. Other areas such as the CPU, the swivel-camera feature and prices are all looked into and you can read more about all of those at the Device Mag link above. As Xavier says in conclusion, although the Notion Ink Adam could possibly dethrone the iPad, the iPad 2 could be a very different story, to say nothing of the other myriad tablets being released in the coming months.
Another article you may find helpful is by Shayne Rana on Tech2 who feels that the potential is certainly there for the Notion Ink Adam to “take the iPad 2 to the cleaners.” The article goes on to give points to each device for areas such as the display, design, processing power, camera, connectivity and more and concludes by saying the Notion Ink Adam “is set to ‘Seek and Destroy’ all competitors.”
We’re really like to know your opinions on the Notion Ink Adam vs. the iPad 2. Do you think the Adam has any chance at all of denting sales of the next-generation iPad, or do you think the mere power of the Apple name will be enough to see off all contenders?
