No HD Display For Notion Ink Adam 2 Due To Battery Concerns

We already got a glimpse of Notion Ink’s Adam 2 and its TI OMAP 4400 processor, and we even heard why Notion Ink decided to shun NVIDIA’s Tegra 3. Now we are learning that the Adam 2 will not have an HD screen due to power issues. Notion Ink’s Rohan Shravan posted on the Designing Adam 2 blog explaining how they had the option to use a 10-inch 1920 x 1200 display but decided against it since it would have a detrimental effect on battery life and increase the weight, size, and charging time of the device. No word on what resolution screen they will end up using but Shravan said an HD screen will make an appearance in a future device when the battery issues can be worked out.
