December 9th has been circled on my calendar ever since Notion Ink unveiled its new site and we found a hidden hint pointing at tomorrow's date. That's when the big Adam reveal and pre-orders are undoubtedly happening, as today Notion Ink posted this teaser, with a single image inside, titled "1.61803399." 1.61803399 happens to be the Golden Ratio, which played a huge part in Adam's design:

As for the single occupant of today's blog post, here it is:

While Notion Ink's website for the amazing Adam tablet revealed a whole bunch of drool-worthy specs when it launched on Monday, one thing it didn't reveal was the Adam's release date... at least not directly. You see, it turns out that the release date (or something related to it, like a preorder launch, anyways) was hiding in the upper right corner all along, albeit in binary form:

2010-11-23 19h28_17

Our tipster, Josh, first noticed this text on the site the day it went live, and it has decreased by exactly one number every day since (on Monday, it was 10001; yesterday, it was 10000, and today, it is 01111).

If you're wondering what that "bonus mystery feature" is, look no further than the page's source code, which includes a very interesting message: "For any sneaky fellows looking through the code, here's a tidbit for you, there's a very awesome hidden sensor we’re gonna be revealing soon." I haven't the foggiest clue as to what that means, but it certainly sounds interesting.

If there is one Android tablet I am truly excited about (more than the Galaxy Tab, the ViewPad, etc), it's definitely the 10.1" Tegra 2 based dual-core Notion Ink Adam. The tablet has been in the making for as long as I can remember Android tablets even being mentioned, hitting more snags and delays than Duke Nukem and Crunchpad combined. However, Notion Ink's incredible (simply stunning really - just flip through their blog) attention to detail that can only be rivaled by Apple, in my opinion, will make the wait seem like a negligible price to pay when we are finally able to buy the darn thing.

If you’ve been waiting for a high-quality Android tablet… you may just have to wait a little bit longer. Due to investor issues, the Notion Ink Adam tablet has been delayed yet again, with the release date being pushed back to late 2010.

After first unveiling the tablet back in December, Notion Ink received enough money from investors in February 2010, but since then the device has been delayed repeatedly due to a variety of issues.

Another day, another delay. Recently, Fox Business News sat down with Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen to talk about their new Creative Suite 5 and the controversy regarding Apple excluding Flash from their recent software updates when he let slip that a mobile version of Flash on a variety of platforms, including Android, will be available in the second half of the year.

You can find full video here, but I've excerpted the juicy bits below:

We have a number of excited partners who are working aggressively with us to bring Flash to their devices whether they be smartphones, as well as handsets, and so companies like Google and RIM and Palm are going to be releasing Flash on smartphones and tablets in the second half of the year.
