    Notion Ink Quietly Releases The Cain Windows Tablet

    I place this here not as a recommendation to buy but as a reminder of the great Notion Ink Wars of 2011. At the time, Notion Ink was offering an Android tablet that everyone thought was the second coming and, when the dust settled, it was a fat load of nothing. And now they’re back. Read More

    Notion Ink Scraps High-Resolution Screen For Next Tablet

    We’ve always been interested in the Notion Ink project, which has always striven to be a true alternative to both the iPad and Android masses. Last time, it was through both a Pixel Qi screen and an interesting custom interface, but delays and yield problems more or less buried it and competitors piled up.

  • Notion Ink Fans Now Considerably Harder To Find

    The folks who lambasted me so roundly last year about the Notion Ink Adam are now nowhere to be found. The “fans,” Greg at NotionInkFan most notably, are quiet. NotionInkHacks is now TabletROMs, a decidedly more catholic site dedicated to general hacks. To quote Auden: Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
    Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
    Silence the pianos… Read More

  • A Deep Look At The Notion Ink Adam Tablet And Where It's Going

    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… Read More

  • Mireo Shows Off Slick Croatian GPS Mapping Software For The Notion Ink Adam

    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… Read More

  • 2011's Top 10 Most Anticipated Gear

    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… Read More

  • The Notion Ink Adam Should Be Triggering Your Scam-A-Meter Right Now

    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.

    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.
