First Tablet PC in India
A Hyderabad-based company, Notion Ink, has evolved its first touch screen Tablet PC. This PC would be illustrated at Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show in January 2010.
Developed by six IITians and an MBA, the tablet PC weighs 770 grams with a 10.1-inch touchscreen and Google's Android Open Source Operating system.
It is powered by Nvidia’s Tegra processor chip and offers features like Bluetooth, a 3-megapixel digital camera with auto focus, video recording and 32GB data storage.
Rohan Shravan, founder and director (creative’s) of Notion Ink says, “After the evolution of desktops, laptops and notebooks, the next innovation is going to be a complete touchscreen you can write on. And, we thought we needed to take the first step. It took us a year to come up with the design, requirements and proposed technologies to make this device a reality”.
The company collaborated with Bangalore-based National Institute of Design for designing this super fitted device.
The device is priced very reasonably, keeping in mind its potential, which is at below $400 (Rs 18,800) in the US and below $300 (Rs 14,000) in India.
