New iPad Rival – Adam

New iPad Rival – Adam

Product imageThe Times are reporting that Apple’s iPad will have a new rival called Adam and the company behind it, Notion Ink, seems to have Apple geeks drooling.

Sachin Ralhan, one of the company’s co-founders, said: “Adam and iPad are based on completely different technologies and are marketed differently. Apple being a strong brand comes at a price premium while we wish to cater to the masses.”

He added: “We see a potential simultaneous India-US launch at the end of June.”

The Adam, which has been designed in India but will be built in Taiwan, is expected to cost about $325. In the US, the iPad starts at $499.(Times)

So, not only is the Adam cheaper, it is also more power efficient adding days of battery life in e-Ink mode when compared to the iPad’s measly 10 hours. Also of signifcant interest to hardware enthusiasts is the inclusion of the Tegra2 SoC at the heart of the Adam, Android as its OS with Flash support (not everyone hates Flash it seems) as well as its 0.5 Watt LCD display when using the tablet as a ebook reader.

Will Adam be able to tempt Apple, we will find out this summer 2010 if everything goes to schedule.
