Notion Ink to show Pixel Qi-equipped smartbook

Notion Ink is promising to bring a new, thus far unnamed smartbook that runs on Android and is the first to use a Pixel Qi transflective display. The 10.1-inch, touchscreen LCD has a 1024x600 resolution but should be noteworthy through its usability outdoors: the screen should be clearly visible outdoors as wlel as inside.

The device will also be fast and should ship with an NVIDIA Tegra T20 chipset that can play back 1080p videos over a built-in HDMI jack. For wireless, the tablet is slated to get a Wi-Fi connection, Bluetooth 2.1 and a tri-band UMTS HSPA radio.

Expansion is limited to a USB port and a 3.5mm audio jack, but users can record videos and capture photos using a 3-megapixel autofocusing camera. Assisted GPS functionality is built-in, as is an accelerometer and proximity, ambient light and water sensors. The smartpad will be available in 16GB or 32GB flash memory versions, with either getting an SD memory card slot to back it up. It weighs 1.7lbs.

Users will be able to navigate using touchscreen gestures or a trackpad. Notion Ink is believed to have added anti-glare, oil-resistant and scratch-resistant coatings to the display. Promised battery life is equally large and rated at 48 hours of standby, 8 hours of HD playback or 16 hours of browsing over Wi-Fi.

A release date or pricing for the Notion Ink smartbook remains unknown, but subsidies are expected because of the device's generous spec sheet. [via SlashGear]
