If you like ePaper, E-Ink and reading your eBooks using an eReader, then Notion Ink has come up with something that is believed to be totally revolutionary: a new tablet that really dirt! What makes it rock is Pixel Qi's hybrid display that lets you choose between ePaper and traditional LCD display at will, even at mid-reading. And there's a third display, described lower.
Why you should want to do that is another question, but it is likely that lighting conditions will sometimes be better designed for one or other of your alternative displays. It was displayed at CES 2010, although as yet just has been given a temporary name: appropriately Adam. For anybody to whom eReaders end up being the name of the game, you should also remember that this is an ink tablet and not an eReader per se. However, it has a few exciting features that will pull the strings and press the buttons of anybody that gets excited by innovation in fractional laser treatments.
Pixels' Qi technology is one among these exciting innovations you ought to love to see discussing the first time. Enabling ePaper to be viewed without glare in full sun light, and then switching to regular LCD or a low-watt quality display. It is based on Android, and offers just over 10 inches of visual display unit at 1024 x 600 pixels.
The purpose of the three display options is that the e-Ink and e-Paper display can be read in sunlight without reflection problems, although you obtain the option of a standard LCD display if that just what you prefer - many do in fact, and the E-Ink display is not as popular as think it to be. The third option, a low-power trans-reflective screen, saves on battery power, and might be whenever you want to conserve the battery and lighting conditions enable you read through the screen without eye-strain.
The tablet is alleged to be excited to play a 1080 pixel video for eight hours without recharging, and one which you can browse online for 16 hours. According to Notion, it may be the only company cord less mouse with the Qi screens with a tablet, and so reduce battery consumption to about 10% of reasonable. Not only that, but there are several accessories offered instance a digital compass, GPs, and accelerometer along with a 3 Meg digital slr camera. It also has speakers and a microphone, and the integrated memory ranges from 16 to 32 gig, with a SD card slot if more ought. Something similar was created by Fujitsu a year ago: as described on the inside article 'E-paper involving.0 And Fujitsu Has It In Color', FLEPia e-readers incorporate Fujitsu's ground breaking color e-paper, 4GB SD flash memory card, XGA quality display that supports 768X1024 and either 8 or 4096 colors can be chosen (Digital Book Readers).
This is really a mean machine, and just as well 'just' a tablet, it is especially powerful with a price tag of around $325. Additionally Bluetooth, WiFi and USB, HDMI and headphone connectors, and that one you increasingly becoming your money's worth. There are go further and mention its ability of running three 1080 bit streams as well as its beautiful profile (not everybody is worried the actual spec - they love the seems to be looking!) and you will pay the $325 without an unitary blink.
CoolER or BeBook? Forget it unless you want a small eReader that can achieve little other than that. This tablet is exactly that: a tablet that rocks while you 3 ways to read your eBooks, magazines and newspapers. If specs thrill you, subsequent the is 6.3' x 9.8' x 0.6', a bit thicker than some dedicated eReaders, however again, and also a much more. The chip is an nVidia TEGRA and it's really not difficult to lose sight of all the time this is not a netbook laptop.
It is machines just like the Notion Ink 'Adam' that imposes (only) slight doubts upon the future of dedicated Readers such although Kindle, the Nook as well as of the Sony counterparts. However, as yet, this tablet, that's the certain to take a massive chunk out of the netbook market, does not compete directly with these dedicated eReaders for really reasons, one being which it was designed to be predominantly an e-reader. Nevertheless its ePaper technology enables savings to be produced in energy usage and battery life, and glare is consequently lower although the transreflective display option permits have a plain view in direct strong sunlight.
Between Notion Ink, Pixel Qi paper technology and Google's Android application framework, we have here a tablet that can truly be said to be 'new' on that it combines the more important cutting edge technology much more being suited for the most up-to-date and ideal tablet and eBook book lovers. It will be some time, however, before tablets can sector eReaders for that one specialist application, and due to the as well as convenience of use of such dedicated eBook readers, when you are never just happen. At least, not using current technology.
Where this machine will benefit is with those that need to find a small tablet computer that will also enable them to read eBooks and other publications, but for whom the eReader capability is not their sole need.
