Bangalore based Notion Ink Adam has been one of the most talked about tablet products and since their show back during CES 2010, the device has been pretty highly awaited and is seen as a gadget that can truly take on the iPad. While the device wins over its audiences on specs alone, for gadget enthusiasts in India, there was an additional sense of anticipation over the gadget since it was a ‘Made in India‘ product.
SlashGear is now out with the pricing and launch dates for Notion Ink Adam in the US and considering mandatory FCC clearances in the country, the device is not expected to launch there before November 2010 and it could be as long as January 2011 for the device to debut. The two month window is keeping in mind the fact that FCC clearances can take anywhere between 2 and 12 weeks.
But those awaiting the launch of the device in India should be disappointed to note that the company is looking to launch the device in India only after the US clearances are done and the launch happens. Quite clearly, there does not appear to be much rationale to it considering that these markets are entirely independent of each other.
If there was anyone among you who looked to get hold of a “world-class” tablet here in India before it launches elsewhere in the world, you just got your dose of disappointment.
