Notion Ink Adam – Launch dates, Models, Pricing, Adam 2 and beyond
Lots of details to share right now. Folks over Slashgear have all the credit for these neat pieces of information.
First about pricing:
We have all been waiting for this. Notion Ink will launch four versions of Adam. NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 is common in all but there will be Pixel Qi and LCD models and a choice of WiFi-only or WiFi and 3G.
LCD version will cost $399 for the WiFi-only and $449 for the 3G model, while the Pixel Qi version will cost $449 for the WiFi-only and $498 for the 3G model. Talks are still underway, so we can expect a further cut of $25 per model.
Another key part. Everyone is saying they want Adam, but when can we get it?
Manufacturing set to begin in early November, taking all the certifications and legal formalities, there’s a November 2010 to January 2011 window in which the Adam could be launched.
Notion Ink expects to release Adam in the US first, so Indian launch will only be 1-2 weeks later. Very bad Notion Ink, launch it in India first 😛 .
Then comes the turn of other countries; the exact details are unknown right now. There will be an online ordering system in place for International shipping.
Ohh.. Adam is not launched and we are talking of ‘what after Adam’. Well Notion Ink is ready with the plan of Adam 2. Adam 2 is expected to use unannounced Tegra 3 chipset and Android 3.0; There is a tentative launch timeframe of Q2 to Q3 2011 of Adam 2. Another device named Notion Ink ‘Eve’ is also in pipeline. No details about that right now.
