Welcome, visitors from the Notion Ink blog. We're still waiting for the video Rohan has promised us, so in the meantime, catch our interview with Rohan, and hang tight!
We'll be uploading the video to our YouTube channel post-haste once we receive it, and we'll embed it into a post for everyone to see.
The Android Police Team Read More
As promised earlier this week, Notion Ink CEO Rohan Shravan took time out of his schedule to answer a number of questions from Android Police. What did we ask the creator of the Android world's most anticipated tablet device? A lot of the questions you, our readers, wanted answers to - as well as a few of our own. The interview, in its entirety, below.
Questions From Our Readers
AP: Many have speculated about Notion Ink's production capacity - can you tell us how many Pixel Qi units were sold on pre-order? Read More
As some of you may have noticed in the comments section of our previous piece, Rohan Shravan, in a kind gesture, has reached out to Android Police with the goal of clearing the air of confusion over the Adam's launch, pre-order, and current status. We asked Rohan some questions about issues regarding the Adam that many (myself included) have expressed concern over, and Rohan has done his best to answer those questions. Read More
UPDATE: Please see our latest post in the ongoing Notion Ink saga - with answers to many users' questions about the Adam here.
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. Read More
Let me direct you all to our most up-to-date post on this issue:
Our Response To Rohan's Blog Posting
Please leave comments there - this thread is getting a little unwieldy.
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. Read More
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. Read More
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.
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:
Can you smell what the Read More
Rock Rohan is cooking?
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:
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). Read More
