Notion Ink has announced over the weekend that they will be releasing a second generation Adam tablet, called Adam II. The original slate, which just got an ICS update, is a 10-inch device powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 2 Dual-Core CPU and equipped with a Pixel Qi sunlight-readable display. This time around, Notion Ink revealed in a press release that the company will partner with Texas Instruments for the next generation Adam II tablets that will supposedly be targeted towards consumers, professionals and students.
Essentially, this cooperation would enable upcoming Adam II slates to ship with OMAP44xx CPUs accompanied by “other TI components like Wi-Link 7.0 and Phoenix Audio Power Amplifiers”. In addition, the maker has also disclosed that the new tablet will house Imagination Technologies’ PowerVR SGX5xx GPU and will offer low-energy consumption.
Reportedly, the Adam II will come with a modular-based software architecture that will let you customize and develop applications using an “easy” drag-and-drop feature. Apparently, customers can use this forthcoming slate for “medical imaging device, 3D modelling, signal acquisition and processing”.
The Adam II will presumably ship with a pre-installed Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Pricing and release date are yet to be announced.
