Notion Ink Able 10: An Affordable Lap-Tab

The Notion Ink Able 10 is a laptop cum tablet that was recently launched by Bangalore based company Notion Ink. While the brand did not get off to a roaring start, the firm has grown steadily since the release of their more budget-friendly products.

The new Able 10 lap-tab has a solid aluminium keyboard that is attached to the main screen by a magnetic hinge. The entire build has now become bulkier than its predecessors which used a soft shell hinge to attach the two parts.

The tablet, which has a glass screen encased in a metal frame, weighs 0.65 grams and thus attaching it to the keyboard makes it quite heavy at 1.41 kilograms. There are a number of ports built into the side of the tablet screen including 2.0 and 3.0 USB ports, a headphone cum microphone jack, a port for micro-USB charging, a microSD card input, a slot for 3G SIM cards and a micro-HDMI port. The volume and power buttons can be found at the top edge of the screen. There are two cameras of 2 megapixels each, fitted into the front and back of the screen.

The touchscreen display is of 10.1 inches and has an IPS LCD screen that has a resolution of 1280 pixels by 800 pixels. The problem with the display is that the sharpness is lacking and there tends to be a glare when you view it from different angles. Since the screen is quite glossy, using the touchscreen leaves smudges and fingerprints behind.

With a quad-core Intel X5-Z8300 processor and 4GB of RAM, the lap-tab runs fairly smoothly when using standard applications. A built in Cherry-Trail chipset has speeds up to 1.8GHz, with a minimum of 1.32GHz. The included GPU (graphics processing unit) is from Intel HD and offers a frequency of up to 500MHz.

The storage capacity of the lap-tab is 64GB and can be expanded with a microSD card of maximum 128GB. The Notion Ink Able 10 has a battery life of approximately 7 hours, with a back pack of 8100mAh.

Running on a 64-bit Windows 10 OS, the lap-tab is good for internet browsing, using photo editing software and other day-to-day tasks. Available at a price of Rs. 24,990, the Notion Ink Able 10 may not be the best convertible laptop-tablet, but it is a value for money product.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Lionel Gurjao

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
