Return of the Native: Notion Ink bounces back with a Wintel 2-in-1 tablet

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 --
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.
