With (More) Love from China!

Dear All,

Starting from one right now (11th), I will keep posting more today (next update by eod).

Will add more.

(Reading comments it seems we missed on the RAM specification. Its the latest DDRII 667MHz 1GB. As reported in the last post as well, the ADAM icon here is in the CAPS. Will get them in the small ones from the next series onwards)

Here We go!

(Do remember that bulge seems thicker because its an extreme close up, try bringing pen closer to your eyes and you’ll note. Its exactly the same as you have seen in the earlier renders and LongBox Video. Also on the plastics, you dont actually see plastic right now! All what you see is the paint, so wont be a good idea to comment on the plastics! As soon as the color selection is done, we will start playing with the texture!)

And here comes the Video:

I am really happy with the sound (the extremely high treble (I will suggest you mute) is because of format transfer to YouTube and  the phone’s recorder, but the volume and quality was good enough for the whole Conference Room here!), (but not that much with the glass on surface, we had 7 different types of surface finishes to be tested, I have checked 2 yet, waiting for the complete matt one). Have added one image with Adam and Nokia’s E63 in comparison for the height since they are similar. Right now I don’t have SLR (as few people noticed by humble N900), and will get the best images when I am back in India. If possible will post all the color schemes.

If you are not familiar with tooling and manufacturing, here is some more info to drool upon. Tooling is required to make the casing for the plastic moulds. It will go through at least 3 iterations before the final tool is accepted when the final texture, tolerances and finish is agreed upon by all the parties. (Check this link: for visuals). We are expecting IInd changes on 22 Oct and last, Final ones in November and then hit that mean RED manufacturing Button!

Warm Regards

      Excellent….. Sure it is!

      Though 10.1″ TFT it is; yet doesn’t it look small?
      Or perhaps to the contrary, the border looks quite thick.

    nice.. if possible post a video and as many suggested keep something to compare with in next post.. like a scale or something ..

      Exactly, but something for us to see the scale. I like how you but several adams on top of eachother, but we allready knew that adama was long one adam length. Matchbox in the picture would have been better, because machboxes are usually standard size (2″ or 5cm). Regards.
