Tablet Rumor Update: Adam Shipping Jan 6, Galaxy Tab 2?
 
 

We have updates for two of our big stories. First off, the pre-ordering for Notion Ink's Adam tablet will not get it to your door before Christmas. It will arrive during CES 2011, though. SlashGear reports that they have spoken to CEO Rohan Shravan and received the official ship date.

Based on this, the Adam will hit early adopters between January 6 and January 9. I wonder if DHL will ship packages right to your hotel room door?

Next, we have what is supposedly a leaked case for the iPad 2. It comes from Shenzhen MacTop Electronics and is apparently larger than 12". The minimum order qualtity is 1000, and the given color is pink. There is a hole at the top, apparently for the rear-facing camera.

Other pictures of the case have been spotted. At least one supposedly packs an SD card slot. That may be for faster photo transfer, or Apple may just be giving up the fight and siding with expandable storage. It is more likely that the "SD slot" rumors simply won't pan out, but we'll see in February.

On to breaking tablet rumors. The million-selling Galaxy Tab is due for a sequel next year. If GizmoCrunch (via Blogeee) is to be believed, Samsung plans to launch a 10" Tab in April 2011. This new slate will pack a sliding keyboard.

The early renders of this tablet all look extremely cumbersome. One rumor gives it a BlackBerry Torch style keyboard, while Engadget feels the HTC Touch Pro would be a more practical device to emulate. Either way, the new Tab sounds kind of hot. And kind of weird.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
