Since then, virtually nothing had been unveiled about the tab. Now, Notion Ink has annoyed the Adam II through an picture on Twitter with the small caption,“Hello World!”

The details of tab is scarce, but set that the brand has teased the tab, more about it should be known in the near future.

The Bangalore-based company is all set to manage things right with the Adam II.

Rohan Shravan, the founder of Notion Ink, published a press release on the official blog reporting that the company has teamed up with Texas Instruments for the Adam II.

The new tab, still that is in the progress, can sport a TI OMAP 44xx processor, along with other components from TI such as Wi-Link 7.0 and Phoenix audio amplifiers.

Notion Ink hasn’t determined the chip which can be used, but a fast view at TI’s line-up unveils it’s either the OMAP 4430 or the OMAP 4460. Both SoCs are established on the ARMv7 instruction set, and fabricated using the 45nm process. Both possess ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core CPUs with simply a clock speeds small variance.

Also both chipsets feature the identical graphics chip, that is a PowerVR SGX540 and pack in a dual-channel memory controller.

The OMAP 4430 has been utilized in devices such as the Motorola’s Droid Razr and BlackBerry PlayBook, whereas the OMSP 4460 will be found in the Galaxy Nexus, so we could anticipate performance along the lines of these devices from the Adam II.

However hardware, the successor to the Adam can run ICS OS, and boast of the world’s 1st modular-based software architecture, that can permit users with a small or no programming knowledge to easily customize their applications. Drag-and-drop features can be preset, that can permit easy apps modification.

According to Sharvan, “This System will help consumers, professionals and students become productive as they will be able to use the tablet as a logic analyzer, medical imaging device, signal acquisition and processing, 3D modeling and multi-media.”

According to a later post by Rohan Shravan, developing on the display and battery, “It’s something we dwelled on while finalizing the specifications for the upcoming Adam. The option we had was 1920×1200 in 10 inch for the same thickness. Only thing which was to be handled was to move the LCD driving circuit to the main mother board, which was also in favor of what we wanted to do since we have a very special VEE (Visual Enhancement Engine) for controlling the display. But, there were 2 problems, power requirement and availability of the apps to run on such a resolution.”

Developing on the issues cited above, Shravan states that the specs would want the Adam II tabs to be charged in less than 2.5 hrs or so, with a 25 WHr battery, that would mean a present rating of 2A on 5V.

He goes on to state, “First, it can be charged with a normal laptop drawing around 500mA (using a micro USB cable). Second, any mobile charger with mirco-USB charger can charge it. And third, leads to reduction in number of components. Micro-USB charging is much closer to EU’s charging specifications.”
