Notion Ink explains OMAP over Tegra choice

TI OMAP 4400 is better for Adam II


Earlier in January, Notion Ink announced its new Adam II tablet that will be based on Texas Intruments OMAP 4400 dual-core CPU rather than Nvidia Tegra chip.

As you all remember, the first version of Notion Ink's Adam tablet was quite popular with the press over a year ago, mainly by being one of the first tablets with Tegra 2 chip. Today, just a few days from the official announcement of its next Adam II tablet, Notion Ink decided to explain its switch from Nvidia's chip to Texas Instruments OMAP, or to be precise TI OMAP 4400 backed by PowerVR SGX500 GPU.

According to the post over at the Adam II developmet blog, Notion Ink apparently decided to try and squeeze most out of the mentioned TI OMAP 4400 chip rather than to have a chip that won't be used to its full potential. Also the choice might have something to do with the fact that OMAP is certainly Google's favorite, at least for now.

Although it was promised for December 2011, the Adam II probably won't be coming out any time soon but we'll surely keep an eye out for it as they have some software twists that might be quite interesting. You can check out the development blog here.
