Notion Ink Smartpad

As if a tablet running Android isn't cool enough, Slashgear's gotten word that Notion Ink's unnamed "smartpad" also will have a new NVidia Tegra chip inside. Mouth watering yet? Check out the other rumored specs:

  • 10.1-inch 1024x600 Pixel Qi panel.
  • Full 1080p video.
  • WiFi.
  • Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR.
  • HDSPA.
  • aGPS.
  • Digital compass.
  • Accelerometer.
  • Proximity sensor, light sensor, water sensor (?).
  • USB and HDMI ports.
  • 3.5mm headphone jack and microphone input.
  • 3MP autofocus camera.
  • SD card slot.
  • 16GB or 32GB onboard memory.

That almost sounds too good to be true, and it definitely sounds too good for our wallets. We should get a better look next month at CES, so stay tuned.

'Smartpad' sounds too good to be true, but we want it!


I find this hard to believe. Full 1080p is 1920X1080 pixels. 1024X600 is NOT 1080p. Do they mean it will record 1080p? Still very hard to believe.

CES will probably have a bunch of new cool stuff though!

Yeah, sounds fishy to me. A rumor started by someone who doesn't understand what 1080p means. 1024x600 is not even 720p, much less 1080p.

They probably mean it will output video in 1080p...isn't that what microsoft said with the zune hd?

hey this is the ceo of sprint and dont tell anyone i told you but
sprint is releasing a similar device but only sprint will offer broadband internet with it, and the ablilty to add a phone app later on down the line is posssible

Values were used to pass objects into functions instead of reference. This challenged the purpose of programming with object, according to Zeev Suraski. According to him Objects and other types of values are not equal; therefore, Objects should be passed around by reference unless stated otherwise. So far Zend PHP has struck a right chord with the zend reviews developers.
