Snapdeal and Intel today announced the launch of Notion Ink's 'CAIN' 2-in-1. Powered by the Intel Atom Processor Z3735D, the Windows 8.1 convertible is priced at ₹19,990 ($330), and is exclusively available on Snapdeal, India's leading online marketplace.
If the Notion Ink name doesn't ring a bell, you might remember the Bangalore-based company's ill-fated debut in 2010 with the Notion Ink Adam, a tablet that ended up becoming the most overhyped and under-delivered product with controversies and delays over production and shipping.
That is past though, and the company makes a comeback now with CAIN, a 10.1-inch 2-in-1 device that runs on Windows 8.1. The 1280 x 800 IPS LCD display features a 10-point capacitive touchscreen, and the device is powered by an Intel Atom Processor Z3735D (2M Cache, up to 1.83 GHz) with 2GB RAM. It packs in 32 GB expandable internal storage.
Notion Ink Design Labs believes in thoroughly studying and understanding user experience and developing a solution for it. The CAIN 2 in 1 powered by the Intel Atom processor is a result of the same philosophy and delivers a unique value proposition of rolling two devices into one sleek form factor without compromising user experience.

The CAIN features USB 3.0, dual charging, as well as an integrated magnetic keyboard. The company claims that the 7900 mAh Lithium-Polymer battery allows for up to 7 hours of video playback and 10 hours of internet surfing.
Delivering the mobility of a tablet combined with the power of a laptop, 2 in 1 devices represent a new category of computing that meet users' diverse needs from work to play. Powered by Intel Atom Processor, Notion Ink's CAIN 2 in 1 will deliver a compelling computing performance and great battery life to keep pace with today's mobile lifestyle.

The 2-in-1 device will be available for sale exclusively on Snapdeal for ₹19,990. It comes pre-loaded with a one year subscription of Microsoft Office 365. The CAIN looks like an interesting, portable productivity device at a great price point. It is left to see if the company can offer a decent build quality and hardware internals to ward off the ill repute from its previous offering. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
