Notion Ink explains why the company picked OMAP over Tegra for the Adam II tablet

A post on the Adam II development blog offers details on the decision

Notion Ink’s CEO Rohan Shravan has issued an update on the Designing Adam 2 blog that clarifies the company’s switch from Tegra to OMAP (in case you don’t remember, the first Adam tablet was based on NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 SoC).

This time around, however, the manufacturer was obviously not quite sure whether NVIDIA is the way to go and which platform to choose for their upcoming Adam II slate with the choices being Tegra, OMAP and Snapdragon.

Apparently, Notion Ink are not basing their decision on “which chip can beat the other one” and therefore went for the Texas Instruments OMAP 4 platform as they can fully utilize what it has to offer. It was also revealed last week that the new Adam II slate will ship with an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, a Wi-Link 7.0 module (a single solution for WLAN, GPS, Bluetooth and FM) and an innovative modular-based software architecture that will enable users to customize and develop applications themselves.
