While Notion Ink’s custom Eden software interface for the Adam table has been getting mixed reviews from early customers, it’s clear that the company put a lot of thought into designing apps for Android tablet, including a web browser, calculator, file browser and email app. A few days ago we reported that the folks at xda-dvelopers had figured out how to install the Notion Ink Adam firmware on the ViewSonic gTablet, a 10 inch Android tablet with similar hardware. Now there’s also a way to install individual apps from Eden without replacing the gTablet’s standard firmware.
So far, the apps include:
- Calculator – full screen calculator with scientific function keys
- Calendar – nice loking full screen calendar
- Canvas – app for drawing or painting
- Keyboard – Notion Ink’s keyboard app
- Mail’d – email app based on K-9
- QuickOffice – version of the QuickOffice suite for Android that’s been optimized for tablet displays
- Sniffer – file browser and app launcher that provides detailed information about your device
- Web browser – Notion Ink’s custom web browser (which will replace the stock Android web browser)
The apps are available for download from the xda-developers forum.
Update: It looks like the apps should work on other Android tablets as well. My Tablet Life has confirmed they work with the Archos 101.
