Notion Ink Enters Tablet Wars With Android Device

Notion Ink is apparently readying an Android tablet with a Pixel Qi display – the very same that was rumoured to be used in the Apple tablet. Just look at it, it’s like something from our dreams.

Earlier in the month, Pixel Qi’s CEO Mary Lou Jepsen commented that their displays were going to be used in “specialised multi-touch tablet devices” and shown off at CES. It certainly sounds like she was alluding to this Notion Ink “smartpad”, which SlashGear has an incredibly detailed low-down on.

For now, they’re only showing off renders of the tablet, but it’s enough to pique our interest. Crammed in that silver, MacBook Air–like physique is the aforementioned chip (which will give it a purported 48-hour standby battery life, even better than first expected), A-GPS, a digital compass, accelerometer and proximity, and curiously ambient light and water sensors. There’s even a 3.0-megapixel camera with autofocus, capable of recording video.

It’ll be available in 16GB and 32GB SSD options, and it will have an SD card slot, too.

The transflective Pixel Qi display measures 10.1 inches and offers 1080p resolution video playback. The rest of the device is 6.3 x 9.8 x 0.6 inches, and weight is listed at 770g. Connection wise, it has a USB, HDMI, 3.5mm jack and microphone input. With Wi-Fi b/g and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, it’s triband on 850/1900/2100 UMTS/HSDPA.

Better wipe that saliva from the corner of your mouth, as we’re not likely to hear much more about this Notion Ink creation until early January at CES, when hopefully the pricing will be confirmed too. [SlashGear]
