NI adam 2 There has been lots of talk about Notion Ink’s upcoming Adam slate device which will be running Android. One of the reasons why this 10 inch slate has interests piqued – it is one of the first devices that we’ve seen using the oft-mentioned, but never quite implemented, Pixel Qi screen, that might be coming to market. The screen has the ability to display full color and motion just like a standard LCD screen, but it can be switched to a transreflective mode which makes it highly readable in direct sunlight, and allows the backlight to be turned off to save power.

We’ve been keeping our eye on this device as the company has been showing various prototypes over the last month or so. This post is here to lay out what we know about the device so far.
