There’s more evidence today that the Notion Ink Adam tablet is finally shipping. Founder Rohan Shravan posted a series of photos showing a number of tablets all wrapped up in their retail packaging. And then he took one out of the box to show what it looks like.
There aren’t a ton of surprises, but it’s nice to see the final design. The Adam actually comes in a sloped box that’s sort of a cross between a triangle and a rectangle — much like the Adam tablet itself, which is thicker at one side than the other.
What’s more, you can actually use the box as a stand for the tablet. The cardboard can be propped up so that it holds the tablet at a good angle for watching videos, engaging in video chat, or perform other actions where you might not want to hold the tablet in your hands. While I’m not sure if a cardboard box is the best possible material to use for a stand, it’s nice to see a company decide to do something to make the box useful after you’ve opened it for the first time.
Shravan says the shipping process will take a little while, since the first units start at a factory in China, then go to Hong Kong before they’re sent out for final delivery.
