Notion Ink Adam Tablet Launch Confirmed [December 9th]

By Sidharth | New Product

While the last post on Notion Ink Adam tablet didn’t cover the whole bunch of drool-worthy specs and features the device offers, but it is evident that this Android tablet is flying off the handle with positive response from the folks who are anxiously waiting for the official release.

A closer look at the new Notion Ink website and you may have noticed the binary codes placed on the top right of the page, it seems as if this is the count down for the pre-launch of Notion Ink Adam tablet. As of this writing, the code is 1000, which signifies the number 8. So, the official pre-launch of Notion Ink Adam tablet is likely to happen after 8 days, that is on December 9th.

Notion Ink Tablet Features

Not only is the Notion Ink tablet India’s first prominent venture into the over-crowded tablet market, but the start up company is located in Bangalore city — the silicon valley of India and the city that I am proud to call my home. 😉

But what really keeps Notion Ink Adam ahead in the tablet war is the advanced hardware it boosts of, for instance the tablet has Pixel Qi’s Transflective display technology for less power consumption and Nvidia’s fast Tegra 2 chip to seamlessly play back high definition video files.

Along with 1GB of RAM, Notion ink has 8GB internal memory, 3.2 MP auto focus swivel camera for video chat and photo capturing. Notion Ink tablet also promises a minimum of 15 hours battery life and as far as cost of the tablet is concerned, the Notion Ink tablet(3G supported) is decently priced at around $500.

Unlike most of the new tablets, Notion Ink adam wasn’t developed in a lick of work — it took nearly 3 years of effort to built this tablet. The wait is what has kept the consumers on the edge of their seat. It will be interesting to see how it fares against the industry hulks. For now, unleash the bad boys in the store!

I have a random, irrational dislike of Apple and Apple products. I have a random irrational love for the Notion Ink Adam. On my old computers I load the ubuntu operation system. 10 years from now you will still be able to load the latest version of ubuntu on the Adam. I wouldn’t want to be stuck with an ipad in 10 years.

The binary countdown refers to actual number of produced units left after tech industry writers browbeated Rohan to give them a unit to test.

The most likely account of those random numbers is that they represent the Hex version of the Unix timestamp for the date of Nikola Tesla’s birth. Rohan’s made some mysterious pronouncements that indicate it’s a clue to the new “mystery sensor” and dropped poetic clues regarding “light” and “dark”. Some have combined those to argue that the mystery sensor is an IR transceiver, which would be an odd thing to be excited about (but might make industrial customers happy).

I think it could be either a laser barcode/shotcode/blobcode scanner (playing on Rohan’s clues), or an inductive charger (Tesla being obsessed with inductive power transmission).

i have been waiting for this ever since CES and it as been a long time so i am hoping that the preorder or the order is dec 9th so i can get it for christmas. i have been checking the binary code evreyday and it subtracts 1 number evryday so it defietly means the 9th

Convert the “random number” from hex to decimal format and you’ll see that it’s a unix time stamp for the birthday of Nikola Tesla. Tesla invented so much that it’s difficult to determine what this might imply, but perhaps its some sort of induction charging? Like you said, maybe we’ll find out on the 9th.

Well, its 111 in binary which = 7 in decimals, so the theory seems to hold. I wonder what will happen on the 9th though… Order or Pre-Order. I sure hope I can order it then!

Well, its Dec 2nd now. The number is 111, 00000111 is 7. Yesterday was the 1st and it was 00001000 which is 8 like the article said.

Confirmed?! Speculated… Nothing has been confirmed
In the least. I wish it had, I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these beauties and can think of nothing worse than waiting till the 9th only to find my hopes dashed

Your headline says “confirmed”, but it isn’t, at least not yet. You’re only surmising that’s the case.

Mind you, I hope and expect it’s true, but given how mysterious Rohan can be, I won’t bet on it until they come out and admit it. (I.e., _actually_ “confirm”.)

    Yes, Eric. But I can assure you that Notion Ink will have something up for ‘us’ on December 8th/9th. One week to go — let’s see.

    Also, I’ve noticed there is some kind of random numbers under the binary code on the notion ink website. One of the commentator said that it was the ‘launch time’ of Notion Ink, on that particular date (Dec. 9th). How true this is, we will soon figure it out!

    The pre-launch is likely to happen, and I don’t think they will delay this anymore. Rohan can’t keep us waiting for long, you know!
