Notion Ink

The Baby is here!

Posted in Uncategorized by Rohan Shravan on November 10, 2010

Hello there!

How would you describe the feeling of holding your new-born for the first time in your arms?! It was the same feeling of fatherhood when we got the first manufactured samples in our hands! (This doesn’t mean we have started manufacturing, there are some tests to be done on the manufacturing set-up, )This is where everything gets exciting, the machines would soon be making that sweet mechanical sound, sound after which you feel satisfied, a little more content, something for which we have waited this long!

There is a BIG difference in this version and the older one where the outer body was still in works (texture and tolerances were to be fixed), final changes in the PCB layouts were left (like how to use the 2 system LEDs in a better way), some silkscreen information and those wonderful words printed on the back of Adam.

We promised ourselves that we will get them printed on the back, no matter what, and that’s what we saw! The back of Adam will read “Created with Love by Notion Ink” (instead of the standard ‘Designed’ or ‘Assembled in’) cos we really have done everything that’s in our control, something which you only do, when you are in love ( :) ). It feels lighter than the last version, but our minds now filled with heavier responsibilities.

If you ask an artist or a sculptor, “when do you feel that you are about to finish your artwork?” He’d probably reply, “when I start feeling the body and its texture!” And, we felt the texture. It was little tough for us to select the texture, after all there are thousands of them. We didn’t want it to be smooth; else it would feel artificial, plastic and un-natural. We wanted it rough, just enough to make us feel its full of life!

Will get someone better than I, to take good images and post it for you guys.

We call the Red one as the “Ferrari” Version (we don’t have one, but just for fun in the lab and is only available for internal testing! There is NO correlation between the colors shown here and the ones finalized for the manufacturing as these are lab testing samples). I have taken one apart for you and will take you deeper into the mechanical construction in the next week-end special. (Please see that the exact colors here are not final and subject to change and apologies if the post was little on the emotional end!)

With Warm Regards

      + 1 for the black version

      “Created with Love by Notion Ink” could be “Created with Love by Notion Ink Family” which would include all of us here who have been here from day 1 of this forum and been tracking Adam even before that.

    • +1 Black.
      Where to order in Pune?

      Jai Bharat!

      interesting tablet no doubt – but at what price? Why should this info not be out by now? and I find all these barings of the heart a little torturesome and a warning of doomsday :)

    • iamapirate said, on November 18, 2010 at 14:55

      Price was released a while back, it’s all under $500

      I voted for the red and black and I really like how it looks, the Adam really is the Ferrari of the tablets

    • keithmaxx said, on November 12, 2010 at 08:34

      looking at the colored one, i don’t know how to feel about the red. it’s too… strikingly bright(?) for comfort.

    • felton (from Chile) said, on November 12, 2010 at 21:31

      Yes, for me it’s kind of a “big boy toy” and don’t want a “boring buisness man” gadget :D

      But in the end, is a matter of taste, each will choose the one he likes the most
