Microsoft showed off the Windows 8, the next generation of the operating system. A great step towards the touch centric interface has bought Microsoft laurels as well as some criticism in how it has tried to keep the legacy too in the mix. More on that in a separate post.
I now present to you, an overload of visual information on Windows 8. Various demos, some might be repititive, but they are all worthy enough. I just can’t stop looking at the gorgeous UI. First up, Microsoft’s own demo
It’s a milestone for the tablet landscape, largely dominated by Apple.Today, one of the worthiest competitors to the iPad , the Notion Ink’s Adam starts shipping.For people who do not know about this beast,a short foreword. It’s an Android tablet running froyo with a custom UI(Called Eden) the hardware it runs on is Nvidia Tegra 250 with dual core Cortex A9 processor and an ULP(ultra low power)Nvidia GPU.Curious to know other specs ? check out the link below.
Notion Ink, a company based in India, run by its rather flamboyant CEO Rohan Shravan, constantly updates his blog regarding all updates of his company and its tablet.While doing so, he has gathered a large fan following even if the device was delayed a number of times. This device , announced sometime earlier around january 2010, made an exceptional media appearance in all forms – concept, prototype, early laggy demos, bad ass renderings, photoshop mishaps, and finally a nice real preview out in bare sun. Originally it created a rage in the media due to its specs and then for its vaporware like mystery around its announcement.The pre-orders were reportedly messy. But finally, all the dust has settled, the Adam has started shipping after getting a green flag from both FCC and the CE.
The tablet will ship to pre order customers on the last week of January.And for others who are yet to order it, wait till they open it into the market 🙂
