Our Notion Ink Adam pre-order is nowhere to be seen. But that’s okay. I have the Internet and so do you!
Notion Ink’s first tablet started shipping last week and is slowly making its way to anxious owners. Notion Ink curiously curated a crazed following of fans with nothing more than constant blogging from the CEO coupled with swanky user interface screenshots. The company managed to sell out of… → Read More
The enterprising boys over at xda-developers are a fun bunch that are generally looked upon as the best modders in the Android community. Their latest exploit ports the Eden interface found on the now-shipping Notion Ink Adam to the Viewsonic gtablet. Funny thing is, I actually trust these forum members to develop the Android overlay more than the original creators at Notion Ink. That’s not… → Read More
I present this without comment, although I’m sure you guys will have your own. [Thanks for the tip, Alqumar!] → Read More
Oh boy. The Notion Ink Adam is a bit closer to buyers’ hands and Notion Ink just posted a round of photos showcasing the clever retail packaging that also doubles as a desktop stand! This is clearly more evidence that the Adam is the most innovative, revolutionary, game-changing product since the spork. → Read More
The Notion Ink Adam might be the best tablet you’ve never heard of — but there’s a good reason for that. This kit isn’t coming from a high-profile outlet with deep distribution channels. It’s coming from a start-up fueled by nothing but raw passion. For us at CrunchGear, the Adam isn’t the fascinating part of the story; it’s a wide-eyed company and its crazy fanboys.
The tablet itself though has… → Read More
Give this video demo a chance. The first part looks a little antiquited — almost like an old version of MS Streets & Trips — but the party begins once the route is executed and the virtual trip is started. It seems Mireo traditionally only does European mapping and mainly in their home country of Croatia, but perhaps the mapping software is compatible with other provider’s… → Read More
Who’s ready for 2010 to expire? Man, we are. It’s not that 2010 was a bad year or anything, but it was all iPad-this, iPhone-that with a bit of Android news bits scattered here and there.
With the products in the following list lined up for release, 2011 is set to be a much more balanced year. Of course Apple will still be a major part of the news cycle, but everyone from Nintendo to HP to even… → Read More
Here you go, Adam-ites. Notion Ink just posted another video showing off the Adam‘s interface. But really, if you watched the first two videos, it’s more of the same panel interface thing, which seems to be all the core interface of the Adam. With just that and no android market, it’s officially off my “Want, but don’t really need” list. → Read More
Yeah, who didn’t see this coming? The first round of Notion Ink Adam Tablets were supposed to ship January 6th. That’s not happening for at least one buyer. → Read More
This isn’t an “I Told You So” post; that’s for John to write if it comes to that. This is a “What The Hell Are You Doing?” post. There are simply way too many red flags to order a Notion Ink Adam right now. I’m not saying it’s vaporware at this point, but if nothing else, it’s truly a case study in how not to launch a product. Even the most… → Read More
Notion Ink just went live with the Adam’s pricing. As promised by the company’s blogging CEO, the Notion Ink is priced well below the Apple iPad. The prices listed here are in US dollars but also apply to other countries. The company has commented they will offer the Adam at the same price world wide. LCD screen,WiFi — $375 LCD screen, WiFi, 3G — $425 Pixel Qi Screen, WiFi… → Read More
Well, well. Some of us *cough* John *cough* never thought we would see this day come, but we have it from a high-level source at Notion Ink that the company will start accepting pre-orders for the Adam tomorrow. → Read More
I’ve been allowed the great privilege of enjoying a spirited discussion on this very site with a number of die-hard fans of the Notion Ink Adam tablet. In over 135 comments directed at us by this post I’ve been lambasted, my integrity angrily derided, and I have been compared to a set of hirsute female genitalia. You claim that I have some sort of bias against this product or perhaps… → Read More
Yeah, sure, it will come out. Don’t worry. I know you guys are totally into the Notion Ink Adam tablet and I’m here to tell you that this thing won’t ship this year and when it does you won’t be happy with it. Barring all that, the company has just released a website so you can gaze longingly at the device for a few more precious hours. → Read More
Some slightly misleading figures have been propagating through the websphere, apparently, describing the much-anticipated Adam tablet as having a minimum of 15 hours of battery life, and a maximum of around 20. Notion Ink wants to set the record straight, and while the new figures aren’t quite so high, they’re still quite good, and have the benefit of being not totally wrong. → Read More
Nearly everyone has high hopes for the Notion Ink Adam. This is the tablet that is said to free us from the iPad’s chains, but so far, it’s nothing more than an fanboy’s dream after the numerous shipping delays. But that’s said to change soon according to the official blog where they just posted a few pics of a production sample. There’s even a new video showing off the video capability of the… → Read More
The Notion Ink Adam (a.k.a everyone’s favorite unreleased iPad killer) is apparently rolling along nicely. The company posted a bunch of small tid-bits on the official blog but only a few stand out from the rest. First, as the headline states, the Adam will have a replaceable battery that will no doubt be touted again and again when comparing the tablet verses the iPad. Also, the Pixel Qi display… → Read More
By the faultless logic of CE manufacturers, if you can’t ship, just keep adding features. To wit: the Notion Ink Adam is now going to have A-GPS, 802.11n support, and even include Unreal Engine support for some hot gaming action using NVIDIA’s Tegra graphics chip. Slashgear, however, is optimistic and expects a January 2011 launch date. → Read More
The iPad is the king of tablets and might hold that title for years to come. However, there are a ton of alternatives that we’ve featured over the last few months, mostly in these two posts (1 & 2) detailing the top 14. But since I ran those posts, a lot has changed and while some managed to make it to the market, others were delayed or scrapped entirely.
It’s sad, really. While the iPad… → Read More
So the reports of the Adam being delayed until November were… partially mistaken. Notion Ink has updated their blog with more particular (and more optimistic) info, though they stop short of providing an actual launch date. “We are on track” is the extent of their hinting, and that’s good to hear (on track implies July or August availability), but there’s more to their post than that. → Read More
Well, that’s that. We all liked the look of Notion Ink’s Adam, with its hot-pants interface (controls in the back) and Pixel Qi screen, but if it’s not going to hit until November then there’s little chance of its survival. It’s hard out there for a tablet, and with dozens of new tablets making their debut at Computex, it may be too hard for the Adam to differentiate itself five long months from… → Read More
We’ve been looking forward to the Adam for a while now, and some of us think it may actually be a contender against the iPad. Personally, I’m not entirely convinced yet, since I think Android is the wrong OS for a tablet device, but with some custom software on there, this thing really looks like it could kick some butt. The first hands-on goes to Technoholik, where they’ve put up video of a brief… → Read More
A random tablet broke from a random company named Notion Ink a week ago. The thing looked almost too good with an NVIDIA Tegra T20 chipset. Like Vaperware good. But the Adam (that’s the product name) seems to be scheduled for a June 2010 launch according to a report by The Hindu. Who knows, we might actually see this thing, but chances are six months from now it will not look nearly as… → Read More
