Notion Ink

Eden and Our Effort

Posted in Uncategorized by Rohan Shravan on December 19, 2010

Hello,

Its something which we planned for CES, cos its was worth it, but I can’t stand against all of you. A saying goes “every one is right, it’s just the shoes which are different”.

Eden has consumed our sleep, sweat and blood. And I think I am not old enough to know of any other project where I saw a  team clocking 18+ hours for continuous 60+ days. I lower my head in respect, adoration and admiration of all those who are working at Notion Ink. (To Notion Inkers: It has been tough on you my pals, but things are only going to get better. You know what we want, and we will get it!)

From now on we will be sharing one video per day per application or principle which comes with Adam. It has been a long wait for all of you, and we really thank all those who are with us.

The video which you are going to see has most of the application loaded in the memory, we believe this is how a heavy user is going to use the Adam. HD video playbacks and High definition games have not been shown since that is what you have already seen on all the Tegra Capable devices. We have not done even a bit video editing to make it look smoother or saturated and it comes straight from the camera’s data card (taking permission here to call adding subtitles as “not editing video”). Do not expect production quality here, because advertising or promotional videos are coming later. Now less of words and more of content.

With Warm Regards

Rohan Shravan

      I’m just gonna shut the F up, the adam looks simple awesome!!!!

      Thank you for the video, Rohan. It gave us an even better idea of the UI and how fast/responsive it is, and was nice to see the keyboard on this one.

      Thanks also for the vids you’ll be posting each day. I think that’s a lot more than anyone expected or asked for.

      (I’m sorry for some harsh critiques I had about the pre-order weekend. Though I think they were valid, I should have tempered my thoughts much better than I did. Since, I made them publicly on the blog, it’s only right I apologize here too. I’ve been an ardent Adam fan for a year; I can’t just walk away so easily. <3 )

      Winning me back over towards wanting adam again(larger storage variants ofc).

      T&C are looking better, much easier to understand, less contradictions and more consumer friendly(no more agreeing to agree to any changes made, no more paying return fee on doa(I think)). Wish that missing privacy policy would be addressed though.

      Demonstrations of adam in action(daily!), awesome.

      CC details have been explained(via posters/Rohan).

      Shipping address is required before getting to cc page. Good!

      Interviews on what happened and why.

      etc.

      Thank you very much, Rohan(and the NI team), for taking our concerns into consideration and acting on them. I’m sorry as well for the harsh comments I made during my disappointment.

      Hey Rohan.. Thats my man.

    • friendbis said, on December 19, 2010 at 11:06

      We have seen few post saying he might be a good designer but not good business man. I will say a good human being is much better than a good business man. Did any body seen any business owner to be such blunt and truthful? I havent seen yet. May be so called CORPORATES can learn many things from this young lad.
      we have so many reason to be happy now.
      1) AP the criticizer become the 1st advertiser.
      2) For those who seek professionalism need to know errors does happen. AP crased within few mins of video release but thats ok with those double standerd guys.
      3) Tight slap to those who said it was a scam.
      4) Even more harder one for those who constantly post -ve remarks on this blog.
      5) Bone breaker punch to those who said Rohan doesnt care about family.
      6) Who has got question now?? Every body wanted more videos?? One video each day. gosh he will make us crazy. Think we might have to tell him to stop.

      why do people think this is a one man operation. Start thanking the Staff for once :)

    • Himanshu jain said, on December 19, 2010 at 12:10

      +10000. Hope to see more post mentioning NotionINK or NotionInk staff. Without a perfect team no one can move forward :)

    • Veeraraagavan said, on December 19, 2010 at 12:26

      +Infinity times 1.618 :)

      Take that naysayers. He made me lose my inhibitions by registering and commenting on WordPress and Youtube. Maybe that might happen to Engadget – years of following and only now contemplating on commenting there.

      Rohan, that’s the family feeling I have about the device. And more so to all people who say Indians are only good at the service industry, take that!

    • friendbis said, on December 19, 2010 at 13:54

      Very true. With a dedicated team any thing is possible.

    • friendbis said, on December 20, 2010 at 00:31

      “If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun..”
      I think now Rohan can have some fun.

    • darkthreat said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:50

      ok This is awesome, cant wait to get my hands on one even though i got a little sad after the pre order fiasco.

    • voxmagna said, on December 19, 2010 at 11:36

      Reading is Fundamental. STAND-CLEAR: !EXTREME MULTITASKING AT WORK! :)

      Panels APPs Browsers running all at the same time; whats next a RailGun APP or you can run games like ACE-COMBAT. hey why not throw that digital turntable while your at it.
      :)CAN it get any BETTER :)

      Non of you start criticizing the company now; “bunch of bitchy little girls” we got in here.

    • rowan fire said, on December 19, 2010 at 11:55

      The last part of your post is offensive, and I really don’t appreciate it attached to my post.

    • voxmagna said, on December 19, 2010 at 12:08

      sorry sorry forgive me for improper language just tired of people bringing down others, and making false accusations about this. Was quoted from BurnNotice

    • rowan fire said, on December 19, 2010 at 12:21

      Thanks =) Sorry if I sounded too uptight, but as a “girl” it bothers me to read stuff like that.

    • voxmagna said, on December 19, 2010 at 12:50

      lol no prob

  2. suicideclown1 said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:07

    ty Rohan!

    • suicideclown1 said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:13

      oh sweet keyboard, can we see you typing on it like you would a normal keyboard and see how fast it responds?

    • suicideclown1 said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:16

      Great move in the right direction BTW. Good decision not to wait until CES. Keep the momentum going!!! You will entertain us throughout winter break and be the discussion around Christmas trees… lol you have already brought my father and I closer. We cant stop talking about this device to each other. Both getting 3g PQI

      3 cheers for NI ;)

    • suicideclown1 said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:47

      Rohan please clarify if is MicroSDHC or just MicroSD. Important difference here. TY

    • ordzo said, on December 19, 2010 at 11:57

      I beleave that all recent cardreaders support sdhc :)

    • suicideclown1 said, on December 19, 2010 at 22:47

      Stuff like this needs to be clarified though, just like the 8+, NI has to be specific. Can’t just put MicroSD, need to be SDHC. Even when you go to buy SD cards they say not to buy SDHC unless you see the logo on your device. If it is SDHC put SDHC.

    Greg was here!

    • Greg said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:09

      @Rohan, Is this being displayed on the Pixel Qi or LCD variant?

    • Sowmya said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:12

      +1 ya same question…

    • Jai said, on December 19, 2010 at 14:02

      i++

    • Himanshu jain said, on December 19, 2010 at 14:15

      @Greg @Sowmya @Jai
      Slashgear has posted that “Per Rohan video above is “100% shot again, in sunlight with PQ, with 4 more app running in background”

      I think PQ here means Pixel Qi so at least the Eden Introduction was on PixelQi. Saying that would love to to see some full screen pics and video to get a better idea about PixelQi performance.

    • Jai said, on December 19, 2010 at 14:23

      Thanks! If it is PQ, it’s great! However, would like to see some hi-res pics too! :)

    • rbrt86 said, on December 19, 2010 at 16:12

      Yes please also show the viewing angle of both screens, which I think is more important on tablets than regular screens

      It looks amazing, nice to see the keyboard as well. One question though: what happened to the ebook app which you showed on the beta a long time ago on YouTube, the one where you flipped the pages! That looked awesome, can the pdf reader do that as well?

      Great job you guys! It looks amazing especially when you realise these are multiple apps displayed at once and still smooth, not like that fruit logo company which only shows a bunch of icons and opens one app at the time ;-)

    • Greg said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:23

      One video per day sounds great! Thanks Rohan!!!

      I’m very excited to see everything come into play. It won’t be long now. But the last days are always seem the longest… ;-)

    • pavanpaik said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:45

      Did you see the date on calendar app (synced up with google as they say)?
      In yesterdays video it was showing Dec 18 and the above video shows Dev 19. So they are just putting them up now.

    • Greg said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:49

      I love that it syncs with Google calendar! ;-)

    • Himanshu jain said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:29

      +1 I have the same question. Rest questions after watching the video :)

    • Greg said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:43

      I’m guessing it is the Pixel Qi…

      In a future video. please show the photo viewer or other app with full screen color photographic images on the Pixel Qi display so we can see how colorful/vivid the Pixel Qi display can be when it is in transmissive mode (full color/full power backlight). Thanks!

    • suicideclown1 said, on December 19, 2010 at 11:20

      hell, I want to see him controlling another computer’s desktop like he said was possible. What about controlling a camera with the Adam tablet? You can already control a camera through the Ipad connection to your PC, but if you can control a camera directly and see the preview on your adam screen instead of the small 2 inch lcd on the back of a camera… Think of the new possibilities for this device!

    • manojdk said, on December 19, 2010 at 11:31

      i don’t know if Rohan meant something by saying shot in a daylight.

    • Vamsi said, on December 19, 2010 at 22:09

      Hey Greg, here is the latest demo of pq.

      http: / /www.notionaddicts.com/forums/showthread.php/760-pixel-Qi-demo

    • Greg said, on December 19, 2010 at 22:21

      @Vamsi,

      Thanks so much for pointing that out. It looks great! Colors are awesome!

      If the implementation of the Pixel Qi in the Adam is as good (same PQ screen model/version and impact of non-glare coating does not change vibrancy much), then I will be extremely happy…

    • friendbis said, on December 20, 2010 at 00:40

      May be Both the PixelQi and LCD showing same pic & video.

    • dariusblackdeer said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:44

      .
      Idk, but that looks like PixelQ for it’s reflection of light. Or maybe it’s the matte screen. Oh darn, I love it.

    • suicideclown1 said, on December 19, 2010 at 11:21

      it doesnt look like a perfect reflexion, the first video didnt either. I think this is the matte screen.

    • Rajendra said, on December 19, 2010 at 11:02

      And please demonstrate both pixel Qi (as movie watcher/gamer/book worm) and LCD pls.

  4. michaelames2 said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:09

    Glad to see a different video

    • michaelames2 said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:25

      I did like how it was more in depth on some fronts but still no audio? plus is there a notifacations bar? also can you show us the camera app in one of those daily videos?

      All in all, a little better than the other video.

  5. jadefalcon1 said, on December 19, 2010 at 10:09

    AWESOME THX! Rohan and NI
