Suck it, iPad! Notion Ink’s Adam tablet has Flash support and built-in camera

The idea of a web-centric device that cannot support a must-have program like Flash is silly. Notion Ink was smart enough to recognize this and include Flash playback for its Adam tablet. Notion has also added a swivel webcam to its prototype, adding yet another feature not available in that other slate device.

The Adam is still in development but the latest prototype is being shown off to the lucky folks in Barcelona for MWC. The tablet has an NVIDIA Tegra chip, support for Flash, and a rotating 3.2 megapixel webcam that seems primed for Skype and other video calls. Other specs of the prototype include a 10.1-inch non-gloss screen with 1024 x 600 resolution, full-color or black & white mode for reading, dual-core ARM A9 CPU, and playback of 1080p HD video.

Notion Ink and NVIDIA have been showing off the device at MWC. Reports from various websites say that it has twice the battery life of the iPad. Throw in three USB ports, HDMI output, GPS, accelerometer and WiFi in a 1.4-pound device, you’ve got something good going.
