Notion Ink Launches Cain 2 in 1, A Hybrid Tablet-Laptop Combo For 19990 Exclusively On Snapdeal
Do you remember Notion Ink? If you don’t, you are excused, very few remember them now. After the initial burst of fame they have been more or less completely out of people’s mind.
Notion Ink shot to fame when they had announced their soon-to-be Apple iPad killer tablet called Adam. However, it was never meant to be. Infact, it was quite the opposite. Initial buyers of Adam tablet faced so many problems that they gave up on it.
Over last 3-4 years, Notion Ink is still at it – They created and launched Adam II tablet last year and even ventured into creating an Android app!
Now, they have come up with a Hybrid Tablet-Laptop 2-in1 combo called “Notion Ink Cain”, which from the looks of it, seems to be quite a decent offering targeted at mobile professionals. The 2-in1 device has been launched at a price point of Rs. 19,990 and is exclusively available on Snapdeal for purchase.
Notion Ink Cain 2-in-1 Features & Specifications
At 635 grams, this 10.1 inch screen 2-in-1 hybrid tablet is light-weight for anyone to carry along wit them through the day. Cain features a unique cover which works both as a keyboard and a stand. Simply connect the tablet to the keyboard and use it as a laptop (and hence 2-1).
And if you thought it was Android tablet – It is not. Cain comes powered by Windows 8.1 Operating System. The tablet is built keeping mind functionality of laptop and hence the choice of the OS.
As far as the specifications go, Cain comes with Intel Baytrail Z3735D Quad Core Processor (1.83 GHz) and has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage. The display is 10.1-inch IPS LCD 10-point Capacitive Touchscreen which is LED Backlit. For connectivity this tablet carries everything one would expect from a tablet device including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 as well as 3G. It has USB 3.0 port, Mini HDMI and 3.5mm headphone jack as well.
Considering the features and specifications Notion Ink Cain is offering, it is a good tablet. However, it may appeal to only a limited number of audience.
The issue with such kind of hybrid devices is that it tried to take a middle path and does not do both the jobs well. A 10.1 inch tablet may be too large for people who are looking at using it more as a tablet, while users who want to use it primarily as a laptop may find screen too small and specifications a bit limiting.
on the other hand, it may attract casual users who are on the move and want to check and write mails or browse the web when they are not in their office. In our view price point is decent, but if it was around Rs. 15k range, it would have been a real value for money device.
