Eve of Adam debut and Android flavored iPad killer has video
Last week, we reported to you about the Adam. No, not the Coleco home PC that was an incredible flop in the 80's which bankrupted the toy maker. This Adam is an Android flavored tablet that is running on Android 2.1 (hear that, Motorola?). The Adam seems to be equipped with plenty of features that are not on the iPad, such as a rotating 3MP camera with AF and a trackpad on the back of the device. Web site Technoholik made up a chart comparing Apple's new tablet and Adam. The latter seems to come up ahead on most items except for the screen. The iPad sports a 9.7 inch display with resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels while Norton Ink's machine weighs in with a 10 inch display and resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. While Adam can multitask and supports flash 10.1 on the browser, the iPad does neither. While the latter has no capability for adding storage, the former comes with a microSD slot. The entry level iPad costs $499 with availability starting in April/May. Adam has a price range of $327 to $800 with launch expected for June/July. We expect to see a lot more of Adam at the MWC as this is one killer not afraid to show his face to the public.

To bad that an e-ink device has no business going up against the i-Pad. i love android and think th i-Pad is a joke but the idea of putting an e-ink device against it is a joke c-mon HTC give us a big version of the nexus one with some real power!

An nVidia Tegra 2 on an e-ink device?? Something tells me we are missing a crucial detail on this device. That is an incredible amount of power to waste on e-ink.

this device may not be perfect... but I think the more competition that joins the tablet market, the more glaringly obvious it is going to be that the ipad is missing CRUCIAL features.
