New Delhi, September 18, 2014: Remember a Hyderbad-Bangalore startup called Notion Ink? No? Let's jog your memory. In January 2010, they made a splash at that year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas with a new PC form factor -- a combination of NVIDIA's Tegra chip, Google's Android OS and ultra- low-power display technology from Pixel Qi.
A few US tech sites in the US to whom Notion Ink, gave exclusive access to their product, went ballistic with their praise. The company rebuffed the efforts of many Indian journalists to try and learn more about their prduct. They worked in secret premises in Bangalore andthe few newspapers who agreed to their hush hush conditions were escorted in, to meet the great people at the helm of the enterprise.
Alas, the product seems to have sunk and nothing was heard of the company for some years.
So we are delighted to inform readers that Shravan and friends -- we mean co-founder CEO Rohan Shravan and his team , have surfaced in Delhi today to unveil another PC avatar that flowed from the fertile, if secretive brains at Notion Ink -- a tablet 2-in-1, called Cain, fuelled by an Intel Atom Z3735D processor.
Old habits die hard it seems and this product is available exclusively from one source -- Snapdeal.com
Coming with a 10.1", 1280x800 IPS LCD display, the Cain promises 7 hours of video playback and 10 hours of internet surfing with its 7900 mAh Lithium Polymer Battery. The device runs on the latest Windows 8.1 operating system, with 2GB DDR3L RAM and 32 GB internal storage (expandable), the USB 3.0, dual charging, integrated magnetic keyboard. It costs Rs 19,990. We haven't seen the product but we'll be sure to share with you, links to any reviews we come across.
