If there’s one thing we’ve come to expect from ARM-based tablets, it’s lengthy battery life, and while the iPad has been ruling the roost with its over 10hrs of runtime, it seems Notion Ink could be stealing Apple’s crown. According to the company’s blog, Notion Ink is seeing “from more than 2 full days to minimum of 15 hours” of use from a single charge of their Adam slate.
We’re guessing that’s with the Pixel Qi version of the slate, rather than the cheaper regular LCD model, but even so it’s impressive stuff. Notion Ink says the Adam’s Tegra 2 processor is actually only the fifth-most power hungry component, with even the speakers – which they’re also pretty proud of – consuming more juice.
Meanwhile, USB Host support is confirmed, which means you’ll be able to plug in peripherals like a keyboard and mouse, together with external drives. It seems Notion Ink might be closing their Early Access Program for developers earlier than November 3 2010, too, with the indication being that they’ve already found a selection of must-have apps for the Genesis platform.
