What’s 3.0 got to do right now with us?

Posted in Uncategorized by Rohan Shravan on July 30, 2010

Hi All,

I think the last post made you all think that we are considering 3.0 for the first version.

Well the answer is NO. We were discussing not on the software but on the hardware. We want to ensure that it can be upgraded. But here is exactly where the issue might come, since the HW requirements are not fixed.

But after the meeting we have concluded, that jumping even on HW would not be an issue for us (rest is to be seen).

So, cheers!

Regards

    Glad to hear you’ll be compatible with Gingerbread!

    If your hardware specs are accurate, you should easily beat out all the projected Q4 android tablets on that front.

    The only thing I worry about with Adam is the apps. One of the iPad’s problems is that so many of its apps are really just iPhone apps and don’t take advantage of the system’s potential. Although I think it would be a good idea to have the Android marketplace available on the Adam (gotta be able to get stuff like Nook on the Adam), it isn’t enough. Your Adam-specific apps are really going to be where you can put yourself head and shoulders above the tablet competition. But I’m sure you guys are hard at work on this stuff already!

    Would love to see some updates on Genesis and your custom interface!

    Best of luck, ptf237

      Adam-specific apps would be nice to have, but… if it is only possible…. Android Market is a must!
      BTW, a low-end and cheap Augen Android tablet seems to include Android Market http://goo.gl/HdVu. This is strange and may be not true.

      It does, but they got in trouble with Google for including it. The ones already at K-Mart are allowed but future products have to have it removed.

    Whew! I think you scared many of us with that post =)
    Hopefully the HW requirements will be met by the Adam.
    If the rumors are true it will, plus to its advantage in that respect it’s not the only Tegra 2 tablet coming out, it’s dual core, and I don’t think Cortex A9 is out yet so it will hopefully meet the requirements and Google won’t go overboard with them.

    Rohan,
    With these frequent updates you are changing my mind about your company. Thanks for keeping your most loyal, potential customers in the loop. And of course like the others I’m dieing to hear a release date.

    .
    Same thinking as the rest, I bet you’ll meet HW requirements with easy. In the end, is a mobile OS still ;]

    Now… I’m just fearing for the price. Sounds like you’re getting very hi-tech for considering even more HW on the tablet… and thinking how far I live… not a good combo for the wallet.

    But whatever, keep it up, and is nice to hear from you all this often ;]

    Thanks for clarifying that.. but i see your point.. it make perfect sense to have the right hardware that can support 3.0 and maybe a few more minor upgrades…

    Good to know jumping on hardware would not be an issue…
    Great news!!! Thanks again..
