Notion Ink's Adam tablet to get SIM card slot
Notion Ink has released a spec sheet for its long overdue 10-inch Adam tablet, which reveals it will support GSM networks, not just data over EDGE or HSPA. The addition raises the possibility that it will also have voice calling capabilities, like the Dell Streak tablet. The sheet also reinforces beliefs that the Adam will be available with either a Pixel Qi and a more traditional LCD screen.
The spec sheet otherwise confirms core details, such as the NVIDIA Tegra 250 dual-core ARM chip. The Adam will get a swiveling 3.2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth with stereo audio and assisted GPS functionality, among other specs. While this isn't reflected on the spec sheet, Notion Ink earlier said the tablet will ship with no later than Android 2.2 preloaded.
An initial release date and a price for the device remain unknown, but it should ship to at least some countries by November. [via TabletsUnleashed]
