“While the world awaits the birth of the Apple tablet, there is another touchscreen device which may have more impact technologically. US-based Notion Ink has announced that Adam, an Android-based tablet PC, will ship in June 2010 for around US$325. However, what is really exciting is that this machine may be the first to sport the new 10.1-inch Pixel Qi display.

What’s the big deal with Pixel Qi technology? While it can perform like a standard LCD display, the Pixel Qi panel has a low-power transflective display, which allows ambient light to illuminate the screen, and an epaper mode. The latter resembles a black-and-white eReader and is meant to be used under bright environments. This allows the Nvidia Tegra machine to consume 90 percent less power than conventional panels. ”
