Introducing Eden – II

Posted in Uncategorized by Rohan Shravan on December 21, 2010

Hello All,

Here is the second video where we are showing our Mail’d. It is one of the faster email client around (you might have to pause a lot to follow whats happening, we could have just slowed down and showed you everything, but we don’t do that in real condition). Our new generation is impatient, and we have designed it for them.

Again those who would be commenting on the video quality, I will request you to wait for the production quality which will come later as a part of advertising campaign (also I need to go out of this building to buy a good camera first!).


(Might take few minutes for YouTube to reflect the video!)

With Warm Regards

      Just to keep the comments section of this post clean too, I am posting a link to the FAQs I put up on my blog:

    video is available ?

      I love it! But have lots of questions this time.

      I assume PFA means Please Find Attachment, right?

      I would love to know how recalling email works. Is it just a delay in sending messages which can be cancelled anytime before it is actually sent?

      Is there a way to aggregate all email from several accounts into one view/inbox instead of having to swap between accounts? I like both ways of doing it, but an option to do either would be nice.

      Are contacts shared across account types (gmail, yahoo, etc) and if so, are they updated to the account so if I add a contact on my Adam, can I use the contact online in both gmail and yahoo, etc?

      Okay, there are a few questions to start… back to watch the video again.

      Thanks Rohan and NI Team!!!

    • fundaazoflife said, on December 21, 2010 at 21:02

      Great thinking on the contacts! I would like to know more about the recall feature as well…

    • paulikxp said, on December 21, 2010 at 22:08

      As Adam is based on Android I believe that all contacts will be synced with Googlemail, any new entry in Facebook, Twitter, Buzz etc. will be added to the Google based database. I doubt that there will be a syncing possible with Yahoo as this is not a very common way to safe your contacts. Or am I wrong?

    • suicideclown1 said, on December 22, 2010 at 10:53

      @Rohan. I have a galaxy S phone and I have it synced with facebook, gmail, and a work account, even though some of the contacts are the same, the system does not merge them into one contact… Will the Adam merge contacts with the same name automatically or can this be toggled?

    • Rohan Shravan said, on December 22, 2010 at 11:08

      Yes! :)

    • notionlovers said, on December 21, 2010 at 21:08

      Yeah big questions on the recall feature over here as well. SMTP does not have recall support. I have had questions about this feature since he mentioned it the first time.

      Contact sharing across accounts should be handled via sharing through the Android ContactsProvider. If it isn’t that would be a big departure from every other Android device, but clarification on that point would be nice.

    • Greg said, on December 21, 2010 at 21:15

      I’d like the “option” to have contacts on Adam synced with one or more (or all) of my email accounts.

    • edheltaur said, on December 21, 2010 at 21:48

      BIG +1

    • Veeraraagavan said, on December 21, 2010 at 22:03

      Yeah. Agree. It would be nice to have contacts optionally synced with multiple accounts. Sometimes you might have to mail without Adam. And the recalling is like the gmail undo send and not actually a recall later? If the latter is there – then may be we will get our answer at CES.

    • Ravi said, on December 22, 2010 at 04:57

      Agree

    • Nicolas said, on December 21, 2010 at 21:56

      Gmail has the ‘undo’ feature, which allows an email to be pulled back after hitting send for up to 30 seconds. This is a feature that must be enabled in Google Labs – Undo send. Don’t know if that’s helpful to anyone…

    • themave said, on December 22, 2010 at 02:48

      there are many other ways of doing the recall feature, he said it is not for every email and you have to have it set for the specific email before you send it

      so, it could on those emails that you decide that you want the ability to recall, that they are sent not as an embedded message but a message that resides on a server and is linked in the email, so the user gets a message that is displaying an html page somewhere, to recall it, then you only have to remove the html page from the web server that it resides on. and replace it with a message saying this email is no longer available, contact sender, or maybe they email in the persons inbox simply looks empty.

      this would work for any mail service.

      Many years ago this was a method used to send messages that expired after a certain time period.

    • themave said, on December 22, 2010 at 02:51

      This could easily explain why the investors were hesitant to have the feature, it means they would need to have a hosting facility that could be used to display the message.

      Why else would the investors have a problem with it, other then it was going to cost them something to implement.

    • sunchicax said, on December 21, 2010 at 21:56

      excellent questions greg, this is exactly what i wanted to ask.

      and btw, the app looks fantastic! i just have to notice something: the “snail-mail” (air-mail red-blue-white envelope) pattern is probably supposed to evoke the feelings of familiarity or cozyness or something of that kind. however, for me it has the opposite effect, it freaks me out somewhat, as in: slow, expensive, messy, difficult to search through, space and time consuming etc. in other words, i am really glad snail mail is for the most part the thing of the past, and i would personally prefer not to be reminded of it. but that’s just me, and not really a big deal ;).

    • paulikxp said, on December 21, 2010 at 22:01

      At 2:16 you can see the text which you have to click for preventing the email from being sent. It reads “Your email will be delivered in few seconds. Tap this note to stop.”

      For me this means clearly just a delay in the delivery. And it’s surely the only thinkable technical solution. And yes, there’s an “a” missing before “few seconds”.

    • AdamStalker said, on December 22, 2010 at 00:13

      Greg, I hope you are the very first to receive the Adam. It’s important you get up to speed before we start hitting you with a ton of “how do I . . . ” questions. So cancel everything for the next couple of months and let your family know you might be able to squeeze them into your schedule some time around April. :)

    • Greg said, on December 22, 2010 at 01:56

      Wow, we share the same hope (“Greg, I hope you are the very first to receive the Adam”)! ;-)

      Once I have it, I’ll do my best to answer questions and get videos online fast, etc.

    • Suresh said, on December 22, 2010 at 01:59

      I am planning the same as well… I have ordered the LCD version with Wifi and hope to receive the Adam with the first order although my ship date mentions Jan 15th -Jan 21st

    • friendbis said, on December 22, 2010 at 02:20

      This video is for Apple fan.

    • Phillip said, on December 22, 2010 at 03:05

      LOVE IT!!!!!

    • marcdimmick said, on December 22, 2010 at 04:07

      Love these perfect demo’s which don’t fail and have problems. lol :)

    • Sovereign John said, on December 22, 2010 at 08:11

      The day NI is bigger than Apple you can crow. Till then if you had any sense you’d STFU. If adam sells half of what ipad does you Rohan will be so smiling.

    • levpius said, on December 22, 2010 at 10:15

      >> The day NI is bigger than Apple you can crow.
      Many here already know NI is bigger than Apple.
      If you are challenging Rohan or NI on sales, I am sure they are not interested. Their aim is to be committed to working on delivering a great product. They would find it utterly stupid to compare their future sales with the sales figures of some great toy factory …

      @Sovereign

      I thought you were leaving?

    • levpius said, on December 22, 2010 at 10:20

      saw this on IPhone :D
