After almost a year of releasing its first slate, a certain Bangalore based company has given a glimpse of what can be expected from its next serving, the Notion Ink Adam II tablet. The last we heard from this manufacturer, it had treated its premier tablet with an Ice Cream Sandwich alpha ROM.
This update to the first edition of the tablet left fans expecting a full-fledged ICS platform coming with the Adam II as well. And the company is not disappointing those enthusiasts. The second generation slate indeed will operate on the Android 4.0 OS. In addition to this, Notion Ink has also partnered with Texas Instruments to provide some essential internal components for the upcoming device, including OMAP44xx processors.
“The OMAP44xx platform’s smart multicore architecture pairs its main CPUs with several differentiated features including programmable accelerators, hardware composition engines and a dedicated ISP. Imagination Technologies’ super-fast PowerVR SGX5xx GPU and enhanced memory architecture add still more functionality while an OMAP-specific distributed composition architecture enables advanced image and video layering for crisp, HD visuals. These elements and more are the force behind the OMAP44xx processor’s ability to enable fast and fluid multitasking while maintaining ultra-low power consumption,” wrote Rohan Shravan, founder of Notion Ink, on the company’s official blog.
Apart from this, the partnership will also result in the Adam II being incorporated with other contributions from Texas Instruments, like Wi-Link 7.0, Phoenix Audio Power Amplifiers and more. Along with the new slate, the tech world is also expected to witness the release of the first modular based software architecture.
There is no word yet on the Notion Ink Adam II release date and price.
