Notion Ink Adam II Specs, Features & Price Revealed

Notion Ink has announced Adam II tablet, the next iteration of the company's flagship tablet. The Adam II is arguably Notion Ink's hope to revive itself and get up from hibernation that lasted for a few months. Will the Adam II do the magic for the company and make a dent in the overly crowded Indian tablet markets needs to be seen; however we must say that the designers of the tablet definitely have done something we haven't seen before. Let's have a quick overview of the specs and features of the tablet and try to determine whether it's worth the price it's being offered at.


The Notion Ink Adam II will be shipped in two variants - Wi-Fi (only) and 3G+Wi-Fi. The hardware comprises of a 10.1" IPS display that works at 1280x800 pixels resolution, covered by a special glass manufactured by Asahi - one of the leading names in glass manufacturing. The glass is scratch resistant which may mean that you can save on buying a special screen-guard. The machine is powered by a dual-core Cortex A9 SoC processor that operates at 1.5 GHz frequency. The graphics is handled by a Mali 400 , quad-core GPU. The onboard DDR3 memory has 1 GB capacity. There are two cameras on front and rear; both with 3.15 MP resolution and capable of recording HD (720p) videos. We like the presence of two, 1 Watt front facing speakers that enhance the sound clarity during skype conference calls. The machine can store 8 Gigs of data on its onboard storage and can be extended up to 32 GB through MicroSD card slot.

On the connectivity side, the Adam II is equipped with mini-HDMI 1.4b port, a micro 2.0 USB port, Wireless 802.11 b/g/n module and Bluetooth 4.0. There's a standard 3.5 mm audio port. The whole unit is powered by 6000 mAh Lithium Polymer Ion battery; which should make the device last for a day on average use.

The system runs Android 4.2.2 out of the box and should easily receive the upcoming Android firmware upgrades.


One of the most interesting features of Adam II, we believe, is the design inspired by a book. The tablet is capable of showing contextual notifications and information on its side. We doubt how useful it would be to have notifications on the side of the tablet, but they'd surely be handy if you carry the tablet in a bag and want to have a quick look at your inbox. Do let us know your thoughts on this new addition we haven't seen before.

The price & verdict!

The Wi-Fi Only model costs Rs. 16,499 and and the official website says you may use coupon code NIA2500W to get instant Rs. 500/- off. The Wi-Fi + 3G model costs Rs. 18,999 and using coupon code NIA21000G will reduce the price by Rs. 1000/-.

Looking at the price people will pay for the specs and features, we believe the tablet may find it tough to crack the markets. We think the company's past may haunt it and the only way for the company to get over it would be through an unseen level of customer service. We'll post our first hand review of Adam II if we get a test unit. Do visit the official website and check out 3D view of the tablet. If you buy one, do not forget to share your review & opinion about the tablet with us.

    Specs and battery life looks decent enough except that rear camera.
    For a price of 16k and above, It would be nice if it has a better rear camera .
