Notion Ink Adam Gets Handled And Praised By Engadget

Notion Ink Adam Gets Handled And Praised By Engadget

Engadget has scored some hands-on time with the much anticipated Notion Ink Adam and have captured it on video for all to see.

The video shows off the Adam's Eden UI switching between panels with ease, even in the cover-flow view. The smooth performance shows off how powerful the Tegra 2 CPU is. 

The browser also looks promising - scrolling through the browser seems smooth though there appears to be a slight lag in reacting to the swipe gesture.

Samsung Finally Releasing WiFi-Only Galaxy Tab In Q1 2011

Samsung Finally Releasing WiFi-Only Galaxy Tab In Q1 2011


Remember back when Samsung first introduced us to the Galaxy Tab, the tablet to save us Android fans from the iPad? They promised that a WiFi-only version would eventually come out for those who didn't want to pay for another data plan.

Well today, Samsung finally announced that it will be coming to the US in the first quarter of 2011. No dates have been given for international releases, but since this is a WiFi device, it should be easy to ship it over from the US for international use.

AT&T’s New Galaxy S Phone, The Samsung Infuse 4G, Pairs A 1.2 GHz Processor With A Massive 4.5″ Screen

It appears that Samsung is going to continue with the Galaxy S brand name, but this upcoming AT&T handset is unlike any other Galaxy S phone you've seen before. The Samsung Infuse 4G improves on the original in just about every way - in fact, it easily tops any phones on the market today:

  • 1.2 GHz (single core) processor
  • 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus display
  • 8 megapixel rear camera
  • 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
  • HSPA+ support
  • TouchWiz UI
  • Extremely thin (thinnest phone on AT&T when it launches)

The most interesting aspect is the Super AMOLED Plus display.

AT&T Gets A 4.3″ 4G Phone To Call Its Own – Introducing The HTC Inspire 4G

AT&T Gets A 4.3″ 4G Phone To Call Its Own – Introducing The HTC Inspire 4G

Eyeing the HTC Thunderbolt or EVO 4G with envy but stuck on AT&T? Fortunately, the carrier, which has a long reputation of not embracing Android (none of their Android phones can officially sideload apps) has just announced its next "superphone." The HTC Inspire 4G looks to be just about the same as the Thunderbolt, with a 4.3" screen and 4G connectivity, although it will support AT&T's HSPA+ network instead of their upcoming LTE network.

CES 2011: Parrot Introduces An Android-Powered Asteroid Car Stereo [Video]

CES 2011: Parrot Introduces An Android-Powered Asteroid Car Stereo [Video]

Last night at the CES Unveiled preview event, I got a chance to see a new product made by Parrot, called Asteroid.

Asteroid is a voice-activated, Android-powered car deck that replaces your existing single DIN car stereo. It has a small non-touch 3.2" color screen, runs on a specialized version of Android (the presenter didn't seem to know which Android version it was based on exactly), is capable of running custom Android apps (SDK for which is coming out later), and can accept a variety of inputs, such as your iPhone, iPod, USB storage, SD card (the left half detaches to reveal the SD slot), Bluetooth, 3.5mm jack, 3G and GPS dongles, and AM/FM/RDS.

CES 2011: LG Officially Unveils Optimus Black - The World's Thinnest Android Smartphone With NOVA Display

CES 2011: LG Officially Unveils Optimus Black - The World's Thinnest Android Smartphone With NOVA Display

During the LG press conference (see our live coverage), LG officially revealed to the world the Optimus Black Android smartphone, previously known as Optimus "B."

This upcoming looker features a brand new NOVA display technology, which LG touts as "breakthrough, brightest, clearest, and most readable among mobile screens, with 700 nits of brightness (Nit: a unit of luminance equal to 1 candela per square meter)." The NOVA display supposedly performs very well under strong sunlight and uses up to 50% less power compared to LCD screens and AMOLED screens that are displaying a totally white image (AMOLED doesn't use energy to display blacks).

Lenovo's IdeaPad U1 Hybrid With LePad Spotted; Rocks Android 2.2

The idea sounds good in theory: a device that has the comfort and usability of a laptop combined with the portability of a tablet. Lenovo's LePad was rumoured earlier this year and it has finally been unveiled together with the IdeaPad U1 Hybrid Netbook partner.

The LePad comes with a customised version of Android 2.2 (called LeOS) and runs on a 1.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The U1 comes with Windows 7 Home Premium and runs on a 1.2 Ghz Intel Core i5-540UM (with an i7 option).

Photos And Videos Of Rumored LG Optimus Pad Hit Engadget

Well, well, well, what do we have here? The device Engadget found in LG's CES booth (see the thumbnail above and the video at the source link) could very well be the long-rumored Optimus Pad. The 8.9-inch device, which is said to be powered by a Tegra 2 dual-core processor, is something I have been lusting after for a while now.

While we can't be sure that the device in the thumbnail is the Optimus Pad, it sure looks a lot like the render below.

ASUS Announces Eee Pad Slider And Eee Pad Transformer, Mixes Honeycomb Tablets And Physical Keyboards Into One Delicious Mix

If you love the idea behind ASUS' recently announced MeMO tablet but want a physical keyboard, you'll be delighted to know that the company has just announced two more Android tablets in the Eee Pad line - namely, the Slider and the Transformer.

For the most part, the two share the same specs:

  • Honeycomb
  • Tegra 2 processor
  • 512MB RAM, 1GB ROM
  • 10.1" 1280x800 capacitive IPS display
  • 1.2 MP front-facing camera, 5 MP rear
  • Mini HDMI port
  • Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n

However, there are also some key differentiators between the Slider and the Transformer - for example, the former includes a USB 2.0 port, while the latter comes with 16, 32, or 64 GB of eMMC storage (as opposed to the Slider's 16 or 32 GB of flash).
