The guys over at Notion Ink in India have revealed some user-interface updates for their upcoming Adam tablet. The tablet is expected to ship in late November 2010 and will sport a re-worked Android browser with a novel system to allow for non-intrusive tab switching. Amongst other small UI tweaks, the developers have uploaded a video of the tablet cutting through a 1080p clip like butter. The Adam tablet will come in two flavors, an LCD model and a Pixel Qi trans-reflective LCD variant; both of which rock a CPU/GPU combo of 1GHz dual-core Arm Cortex-A9 processor and Nvidia Tegra 2. Connectivity wont be a problem since the tablet is believed to feature 2 USB ports, a micro USB port, an HDMI-out port, a microSD card slot, and SIM card slot. Android aficionados will be happy to know the tablet will run Android 2.2 when released. Whilst the tech specs are more than satisfying, it remains to be seen if it can live up to buzz.

This weekend, the Wireless Power Consortium finalized specification for a low-power wireless charging standard. The new specifications will allow you to charge gadgets that draw up to 5 watts of power sans cords; most devices that charge over USB use 2.5 watts of power. The standard also calls for a third-party certification process that will allow gadget manufactures to brandish their device with the Qi logo. The purpose of this is simple: Qi logo bearing devices will work with other Qi logo bearing devices. Hit up the read link for all the nerdy details.
