So Apple iPad is Here. Did you Know about ADAM?

I am sure you have been flooded with Apple’s iPad news that was made available on Saturday after one of the most successful hype-campaign after the iPhone launch.

I love the new ‘lifestyle’ device ‘Apple iPad’, don’t get me wrong and I love my Apple iPhone. So, with Apple iPad available for ordering now, what other alternatives are out there?

One of the tablet devices in the making that has been making waves is Notion Ink’s Adam by Rohan Shrawan.

Check out the following videos of the what looks to be the final production version of the Adam tablet. I really love the video camera swivel that solves the front facing/back-facing camera. Also, the Pixel Qi display is so much more readable in sunlight and there is a trackpad in the back!
