In a post to Notion Ink's official blog today, the Indian manufacturer announced a new partnership with Texas Instruments. The company indicated that the Adam II (a follow up on Notion's first Android tablet) will feature TI's OMAP44xx processor, as well as a few other TI components:

Adam II will be using OMAP44xx processor along with other TI components like Wi-Link 7.0 and Phoenix Audio Power Amplifiers. Adam II will also leverage the power optimizations achieved using mature combination of TI’s integrated power-management IC.

Additionally, Notion Ink revealed that the Adam II will be running Ice Cream Sandwich, and feature "the world's first Modular Based Software Architecture," promising drag-and-drop functionality for creating customized applications. This new feature appears to be aimed at those with little or no programming knowledge, in an effort to "further expand the scope of application development and use nearly every single hardware feature in a 'user customizable' application."

This partnership certainly makes Notion's upcoming Adam II sound exciting (despite its absence from CES), and while we don't have any more details about the device just yet, Rohan Shravan (Notion's founder) promises that those following the company's blog can expect to see more information.

    who cares, i would never buy anything from this company ever again after the debacle that was the adam. They are leveraging the community to port ICS to the adam. and now the newest version of their devices is using chipset that is outdated before it's even produced with arm15 designs and quad core arm 9's already out

    Not sure why this is news. Notion Ink did not even come close to delivering a tablet that was what it was touted and promised.

    It doesnt matter what comes inside, if you dont have the ability to follow through.

    Basically it doesnt matter.

    Just a word of caution, NI claimed to have been "partners" with Nvidia as well for the Adam. There was nothing in the partnership, just your typical "I buy your chips and use them in my product" deal.

    I'm thinking that would almost certainly come as news to TI.

    Partnership. Lost is translation probably.
