This year in Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011, many tablet PCs were introduced and most of the tablets were really tremendous and spectacular to say the least.
But Notion Ink Adam doesn’t seem to stop now even though the tablet was introduced in CES 2010. The shipping of the tablet was delayed for a long time and we could only see the tablet through some leaks and photo shots posted in Notion Ink’s Website. There were several introduction videos that were captured during the CES 2011. Nonetheless, the tablet has quite unique and impressive features which are not available in many latest tablet PCs.
The tablet is named Adam and their store is named Genesis which is based on Bible. Many other products that will be released later are also expected to be named after either Eve or other characters in Bible as described and shown on the video below.
Coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab which debuted in 2010 IFA in Berlin, this is another Android-based product which is a tablet performing second best to Apple iPad in the market today. The tablet from Samsung has been released in major places like Africa, Asia, India, Pakistan, Australia, Brazil, Europe, Middle East and the United States. Also during CES 2011, Verizon Wireless and Samsung Telecommunications America have announced a new 4G LTE-Enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab which will feature a 5 mega-pixel rear facing camera.
