Notion Ink claims 15 hours of battery life for Adam Tablet
The Adam Tablet is one of the most highly awaited gadgets in the ultraportables segment, mainly because of its unique design and the features it packs in. And now, the makers of the tablet, Notion Ink, have come out in the open to announce their figures for what they expect of the battery that will power the tablet. Reportedly, company official Rohan Shravan has claimed that the Adam Tablet will get more than 15 hours of power back-up, courtesy a 24Whr battery doing duty under the hood.
In addition to this, what helps this claimed figure of the expected battery life is the fact that the device is powered by a low power NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, which even under high graphics performance doesn’t sip much power. What’s great is that some of the models will also feature a low power Pixel Qi transflective display that allows for even lower energy usage with the display backlight disabled. However, the battery life you might get on your tablet surely would depend upon your usage, so don’t expect the battery to deliver as much as promised on heavy usage.
In todays market the most you get out of a heavy 9-cell netbook battery is 8-10hrs, and the tablets do not generally come with a 9-cell battery – worse, they are not even replaceable in most cases. But your Notion Ink might just have a replaceable battery – a deal winner for me actually!
Notion Ink might also put up a chart indicative of the battery life depending upon various usage factors shortly after shipping starts. While Rohan Shravan spoke about the battery, he also mentioned that the Adam Tablet will come with highly capable speakers as well as USB ports that will let you use several of the commonly used USB devices. All in all, from what we have all seen in the due course of time of the Adam tablet, it sure seems that it will create waves once it hits the market and is sure to see a lot of takers for it; not to forget its major selling point-its ANDROID!
The sleek glossy toy was supposed to start shipping between November this year and Jan next, but no confirmations yet on the same.
