notion ink adam tablet with android 4.0 ice cream sandwich

Notion Ink founder Rohan Shravan is showing off an early look at Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on the company’s Adam tablet.

The Adam is a 10 inch Android tablet with a 1024 x 600 pixel display and NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor. It’s also one of the first devices to come with an optional Pixel Qi transflective display which features a full color mode and a high contrast (nearly black and white) mode for outdoor visibility.

The Android 4.0 software update isn’t ready for Notion Ink users yet. It’s still a work in progress. The camera, for instance, doesn’t work yet.

But Notion Ink is working with developers from the Tablet ROMS community, and at least one of those developers suggests that camera support should be possible.

The Adam tablet generated a lot of buzz when it was first introduced, but Notion Ink is a small Indian company that hasn’t been able to keep up with Acer, Asus, Dell, HTC, Lenovo, Samsung, and other big-name tablet makers in terms of software and hardware updates or distribution. But it’s good to know that customers that did purchase some of the early Adam tablets will be getting a major software update eventually.

  1. The ADAM is one of the biggest piece of human effluence
    that I have ever had the mistake of purchasing. I totally disagree with the
    comment about goals. The company has missed the mark on so many
    “goals” they should get someone in charge that knows what the words
    “customer service” truly means. Hollow promises, and incompetent
    developers are not “goals”, where I come from they are described as
    FAULTS. I have dissuaded more than a few from buying this miserable piece of
    techno crap.

  2. I have an Adam that I love.  I do not feel that the company has engaged in any “shady ethics” but rather that they met with unforeseen obstacles that prevented them from accomplishing all that they wished.  They have worked very diligently to make things right.  When my nephew wanted to purchase a tablet, I recommended the Adam to him, and he also adores his.  He has told me on multiple occasions that he is glad he followed my advice. 

    I take what the company says “with a grain of salt” to the extent that I consider their announcements to be goals, rather than promises, and dates to be targets rather than deadlines.  They work hard.  If it’s possible to do, they’ll get it done. 

  3. Going by Notion Ink’s shady ethics in the past, I will believe it once I have a fully working copy on my Adam.  Anyone with any experience with this company should know by now to take everything they say with a grain of salt.
