Gadget Comparison :Motorola Xoom vs. Notion Ink Adam

Motorola Xoom


The Adam Tablet is a tablet computer designed by Bangalore-based firm Notion Ink. The worldwide launch occurred on December 18, 2010 via a video released by Notion Ink detailing their Eden Interface. On December 9 a limited number of devices were released for pre-order globally, followed by a larger pre-order starting January 9, 2011 and an open subscription pre-order from 11 January 2011.

The Adam runs a customized version of Android 2.2, with an update to 3.0 in the future.
The Adam is set to be the first Android device marketed to contain Pixel Qi's low-power, dual-mode display. The device is one of several tablet form-factor devices to include a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor that can support 1080p video output mirroring. Notion Ink offers a range of Adam tablets with different options:

The Adam generated expectation in specialized media leading up to its appearance at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas where it received favorable initial reviews

With the advent of  Honeycomb 3.0 being released, many tablets are poised to take advantage of this new operating system.  One tablet, critics are saying, that may give the Motorola Xoom a run for its money, is the Notion Ink Adam.

Operating System

Notion Ink Adam will run on Android 2.2 while the Motorola Xoom will be released running Android 3.0, Honeycomb. However the Adam will get upgrades to 3.0 in the future.


Both tablets use the NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip. Motorola Xoom will run on a the standard interface, while the Notion Ink Adam runs a custom made interface named Eden which has been custom made for Android 2.2 and the NVidia processor. Some initial reports are suggesting that there are some bugs to be fixed still, but given that the hardware is so solid, we have hopes for the little tablet that could.
