Like 2007 was the year of smartphones (iPhone), it looks like 2010 will be year of tablet computing. Many companies like Dell and Asus have already said that they will introduce devices in tablet form factor next year, and many other companies have started shipping tablet devices. One notable new addition to the tablet lineup for 2010 is Notion Ink’s yet unnamed tablet that uses Pixel Qi’s screen technology. As we wrote before Pixel Qi screen technology is very interesting because it offers two modes: a black and white reflective mode similar to e-ink and a traditional emissive mode like the regular LCD screen.

Notion Ink’s tablet will be based on unannounced NVIDIA Tegra T20 chipset and will support full HD (1080p) playback. The Android based device will have 10.1-inch Pixel Qi touchscreen panel (1024 x 600), Tri band UMTS/HSDPA, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth, A-GPS, digital compass, accelerometer, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor and 3-megapixel autofocus camera. The tablet will come with 16GB or 32GB flash memory and feature SD card slot for memory expansion. Battery life is estimated at 8 hours for HD video playback, 16 hours for Internet surfing and 48 hours in standby.

Notion Ink will officially introduce the device at CES along with number of applications for the device that will include office style software, Ebook reader and Flash based games. No word on pricing yet, but judging by the hardware configuration it should be around $500.
