Rohan Shravan from Notion Ink has posted an update on their blog about the Adam coming to market. Though the release date has still not been set or where it will be released first, he did hint at a few interesting points. First he mentioned that there will probably be 2 versions. 1 with a standard LCD Screen and 1 with the Dual PQ Screen (Pixel QI). The PQ screen of course being the higher end model. The PQ screen is not only a full color High Definition 1080p screen but it also can switch to a black and white ePaper mode which views similar to your e-reader but with a much faster refresh rate. It can either do this automatically or with the flip of a switch. (Pixel Qi vs iPad)
The next thing he hinted at was the price. Now he didn’t give an exact number but he did give a projections. “if we are doing well, we are talking about at least a business of 100k devices a month. That will amount to at least $350 million dollar of revenues in the first year itself” so what he is saying is if they sell 1.2 million devices in the first year they will have 350 million dollars of revenue. Simple math equates to roughly $300.00 per device.
If this device does make it to market this will surely give the iPad a run for its money. Check out the video links below and tell me what you think. Will this make the iPad outdated? (I hate the term iXXXX killer because the idea is stupid… there will always be people buying iCrap)
