UPDATE: Please see our latest post in the ongoing Notion Ink saga - with answers to many users' questions about the Adam here.

Some Clarification

Before we get into what Rohan Shravan's latest blog post is concerned with, we'd like to issue a statement to our readers, and Notion Ink.

Android Police has e-mailed Notion Ink on numerous occasions about the Adam over the past several weeks; asking for photos, interviews, details - anything which could ease concerns about the device's production status.

Our Response To Rohan's Blog Posting

Please leave comments there - this thread is getting a little unwieldy.

Thanks,

Update #4: If Notion Ink is planning to unveil Adam at CES, why are they not listed in the CES exhibitors list?

Update #3: Rohan Shravan has posted, in response to many users' concerns, some information on his blog regarding many of Notion Ink's policies, shipping costs, and warranty.

While loyal commenters on the Notion Ink blog got the chance to pre-order this morning, the rest of us have been deprived of the privilege until now. Well, you can stop holding your breath now, for the Indian company has just let the rest of the world in on its pre-order page for the 10-inch tablet. The prices have remained the same, but let's recap them anyways:

  • LCD Wi-Fi version: $375.33 (down from $399.99)
  • LCD Wi-Fi+3G version: $425.33 (down from $449.99)
  • Pixel Qi (transflective display) WiFi version: $499.45
  • Pixel Qi (transflective display) WiFi +3G version: $549.99

Unfortunately, all four models are said to be shipping in "6 to 8 weeks," and the fact that the shipping fee is a flat rate of $50, no matter where you ship it to, is starting to make us suspicious.

The wait for Notion Ink's dual-core Tegra 2 based Adam tablet pre-orders is finally coming to an end - after yesterday's teaser blog post that now generated over 8000 comments, Rohan Shravan, the CEO and the public voice of Notion Ink, put up some details of the pre-order that is indeed coming today.

Timeline

First up, the timeline:

  • 10:30 a.m PST Dec 9th (0:00 a.m. IST Dec 10th): pre-orders start for a pre-selected group of people who have been actively participating in the Notion Ink Blog
  • 4:30 p.m.

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:

I woke up this morning to a slew of tip emails stating that Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) is definitely coming out on December 6. I initially decided to pass it up (at this point, I'm so sick of Gbread rumors that I almost don't care anymore), but for the sake of you, dear reader, I thought I'd pass it along. The reason for the latest rumor is that Notion Ink posted on their blog stating the following:

6th December is another big day for Android and you will find out how fast Notion Ink can work.

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).

Bonus mystery feature ;)

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.
