Notion Ink

Delayed! :)

Posted in Uncategorized by Rohan Shravan on January 18, 2011

:)

Well that was just to catch you guys! Images will speak lot more than I can. See below!

:)

There we go! Shipping starts tomorrow for the FCC and CE batches, your deliver status on the website will be updated soon.

Now I would like to see how the next point is covered (generally there are big flashes all around other blogs with “Notion Ink delayed” tag).  We are tying to pre-pone ALL of the February shipments! So if your status read February, it should be changed to the last week of January. February was suggested to you all because we were not sure of how the FCC will work out (based on which we need to decide on the procurements), and added buffers while giving you the time lines.

We are as excited as you are! :)

Warm Regards

Rohan Shravan

    Great!! :-) Unfortunately I was unable to preorder… (And first?! :D)

  22. Greg said, on January 18, 2011 at 19:59

    :-)

  23. Pasha said, on January 18, 2011 at 19:59

    I am really looking forward to seeing this reviewed. I really hope that engadget will get their hands on this before the second wave of orders starts. I am very much on the fence between the Adam and the Motorola Xoom.

  24. Skip Bowman said, on January 18, 2011 at 19:59

    Thanks for the update. Got two on the way!

  25. darembo said, on January 18, 2011 at 19:59

  41. JayO said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:01

    Love seeing the big batch of them! Can’t wait til one is mine. Please give us an update on when the next phase of ordering will happen!

  57. Tim said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:04

    My pulse just went up a bit on seeing the “Delayed” title but once I read it the old pulse really jumped. Shipping tomorrow, hot damn. I can barely wait.

  58. Dominic said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:04

    You got me with that title :)

  59. Vyjesh said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:04

    Hi Rohan,

    Why is that every picture in here is blurred?

  60. Rahim said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:04

    I must say that its very smart move from you Roahn :)

    Now this is called a “true revenge” to see reaction of all blogs on early shipping !

    Hope to see the reactions of John, Matt and all others :) Grab the popcorn guys, show is about to begin :)

  61. Dmitry Solomakhin said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:04

    Everyone sees that there are Adams with white stripes and with black stripes? =) I wonder if this distinguishes between PQ and LCD version.

    Speaking about shipment – I received this email today from Jon:

    Dear Dmitry,

    Greetings from the Notion Ink Support Team!

    We are using DHL and TNT for most part of the world.

    The shipping company will contact the customer if he is not there and re-attempt to deliver next day but if no contact and no one is at home for 2-3 days, it will send the device back. Thus we advise to track using the tracking number we provide and collect the package when delivered to you.

    Thank you for your continued support to Notion Ink!

    Warm Regards
    Jon
    Notion Ink Support Team

  62. Robert de Groot said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:05

  63. allan jones said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:05

    still gutted. didn’t get a pre-order, and still no idea of when i’ll even be able to place an order. i just have to watch jealously as these units ship out. bah.
    still, congratulations, rohan et al. even if one isn’t coming my way, it’s still awesome to finally see the adam shipping!

  64. Pratik said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:05

    Woohoo! This is sweet! Congrats NI. Congrats Pre-Orderers. :)

  65. Waqar said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:05

    :) Great. But the heading made me skip a beat. I am so excited. Let’s hope that Adam meets our expectations. Regards

  66. memurali said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:05

  67. Dmitry Solomakhin said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:05

    Did anybody else have a minor heart-attack when they saw the email for this post?

    So happy to see boxing pics! Rather ironic, isn’t it?

  75. Shawn said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:08

    Wow !! at last some good news ..

  78. Rahim said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:08

    Probably taken from someone’s mobile camera.

    Be assured that these images are not from Adam camera!

  79. David (US,DC) said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:09

    Rohan and NI team,

    I’m very happy to finally see you get your first batch out the door… Probably not as happy as your are so congratulations!!! Looking forward to the next round of ordering and hope to get my hands on a PQ version.

    Congratulations again!!!

  80. tj1969 said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:09

    I have been reading the latest reports on slashgear, and comparisonwith Motorola’s zoom.
    I believe that you are streets ahead, my only comment is when can I ordered mine, having missed the first pre order date.
    I require a Wi-Fi pixel but can you advise or anyone advise whether the 4G is worth getting?

  81. Ganesh said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:09

    Did you already receive a tracking number?

  82. karen said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:09

    Unhealty email and title for this blog..
    But happy after all! :-)

  84. Jayachandran said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:09

    @rahim

    Yes. This is a clever move.
    The element of surprise :)
    awesome news indeed For Adam :)

  85. Matt said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:10

    Second set of pre-orders next?

  86. Rahim said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:10

    I literally disappointed when saw the subject as “Delayed” but :) following “delayed” kept me alive so that I could check the blog :)

  87. Ordzo said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:10

    heheee

  88. Rahim said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:11

    eagerly waiting for new post in those blogs :)

  89. edju13 said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:11

    @Rohan,

    When you say that basicly everybody should receive his/her Adam within the coming 2 weeks. How about pre-order 2? And please let us know if Mastercard problems are solved.
    I would love to order.

    Greetings,

    Edju13

  90. Karim EL MANSOURI said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:11

    yeeahhhh, I can see mine over there !

  91. harun said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:11

    that title did shock me! Just Hope any tech site dont judge anything with it. ;)

  92. Joshua Price said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:12

    What’s hilarious is, while you weren’t first, you WERE the first person to say “First”.

    So claim your prize, as the “First first”! :)

  93. GIJoe said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:12

    LOL…
    Rohan this is by far the best post from you for all the good reasons!!!
    Love your sense of humour!!
    Now lets see how many of the tech bloggers out there read beyond the title of your blog!!

  94. Knoc said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:12

    Hot damn. Locked and Loaded.
    Thanks for throwing up the images rohan.

  95. Amith Narendra said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:12

    Sweet, this is very very sweet. I’ve to just kill a few more days and wait for this to land up in my hands :-) :-)

    @Greg – Time to prepare for the unboxing & initial tests :-)

  96. Burt O' Stage said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:12

    Freaky! I just turn my back to the screen for a second…
    … Wham! There’s a new post and already 80+ comments…

    And still not the preorder I was longing for…. :)

  97. Prema said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:12

    :-)

  98. harun said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:13

    salam.. lol

  99. karen said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:13

    Now Rohan will have to deal with the ‘letting go’ issue.
    Please don’t keep them to yourself, Rohan.
    Let them go from the nurturing room into the Big World now, with all the geeks and adamites, whom you designed it for :-P

  100. edju13 said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:14

    Did anybody notice the 2 colors?
    I saw white and black versions.
    Is it up to NI to decide what you get?
    For me it wouldn’t matter as long it’s not purple the color is not as interesting as the Adam itself.

  101. Nile said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:14

    Awesome can’t wait to get it in my hands. Thanks for the update rohan!

  102. Greg said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:15

    Such great news! I wonder if January 19 will become an official holiday throughout the world to commemorate the first shipment of Notion Ink Adam tablets?! Well, probably not, but it will be a date us fans will always remember… :-D

  103. Dmitry Solomakhin said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:16

    Not yet, hoping to get it tomorrow

  104. Thatcher said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:16

    Wow man, people are on top of this site like white on rice… 90 responses in the blink of an eye… Great news for the lucky 1st group of preorders… Time for the rest of the world to get lucky too… C’mon Rohan, open the floodgates….

  105. Cristina said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:16

    @Rohan,
    Any idea when the next batch will be available for ordering?

  106. suhas patel said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:16

    Just 15 min gone after blog post almost over 100 comments.
    Anyways a tight slap on the face of whose post just negative topics on Adam.

    How will they digest this?

  107. Ekiliwindi said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:16

    my pre-order email, please? these pictures torture

  108. Dmitry Solomakhin said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:16

    I guess it distinguishes the PQ and LCD versions.

  109. David Wittenbrink said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:17

    Any infos on when we will be able to preorder it?

  110. SAMADHAN RAUT said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:17

    Snapped on walk!

  111. legaleagll said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:17

  114. kleinerBerserker said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:18

    fantastic news!
    when is next order-round starting ^^

  115. Trovatrice said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:18

    Can’t wait to see similar photos of zillions of Pixel Qi screens rolling out for the next round of orders! Fingers crossed that all of these have safe journeys to their new homes!!

  116. SAMADHAN RAUT said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:18

    Snapped using Blackberyy 9000!

  117. Rahim said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:19

    You lost your first position while typing the longer comment!

    Other smart bloggers just type first! to become first :) Better luck next time though :D

  118. Ben said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:19

    YES!!!!!

    I won’t miss the TNT man, sitting right in front of my door ;-)

    Come home baby

    Ben

  119. Thomas Lyons said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:19

  120. Andromeda said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:20

    This is wonderful, congrats to all who got to pre-order in december!! :D I hope your Adam arrives as quickly as possible!
    Seems like the last few weeks of January are going to be HOT! Now that this has been cleared, I believe we’ll get to see the next round of pre-orders pretty soon :)

  121. Kam Siu said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:20

    HELLLLLLLLLLL YEAH

  122. Greg said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:20

    They are from a Blackberry 9000 (as per the exif info)

  123. Ordzo said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:21

    so default color for adam is black-wite !?
    what are those black-black then ?

  124. Vladimir Kelman said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:21

    Great!
    Thank you Rohan.

  125. Sid said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:21

    sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!!!
    now all i need to do is find someone working for DHL!!!

    CONGRATS NI & ROHAN!

  126. Joshua Price said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:21

    And the 8 surrounding it are all Greg’s.

  127. Andromeda said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:21

    Haha, I was like that today when I was expecting my new camera. I can’t imagine what we’ll all be like when we get our very own Adam :D

  128. Andrea Nigido said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:22

    Sweet! Can’t wait for mine..already spotted it!

  129. mr.su said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:23

    excellent!
    good news for everybody!
    i wait for the second order can come soon!

    good luck for everybody here!

  130. MS said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:23

    Same here Rohan

  131. Alex said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:23

    Es geht los :D

  132. Greg said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:23

    Good catch. I like the all black… But at this point I’d take fluorescent pink if that was what was shipped to me!

  133. Joshua Price said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:23

    If I follow this blog any more, I’ll need to buy a defibrillator. :)

    Now it would be really cool if we could see the “made with love” message on the back…

  134. Gabe said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:24

    Love it. You are quite the sly one Mr. Shravan.

    Greg – I’m glad you had time to spend it with the family this weekend because I believe there will be a lot of anxious people ready to see some videos.

    Also – how much do you want to bet some of the blog sites will criticize the blurry pictures of Adam in production? My guess is John Biggs will state that the company is doomed to fail if they can’t even take a clear picture. They have to find something wrong and Rohan keeps giving them less and less to dwell on.

    Congrats Rohan and the NI team for what will prove to be another great week in your young careers.

  135. Nilesh Zabak said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:24

    Rohan – of all your posts last month, this is most pleasing for me because I belong to “February” batch.

  136. andresthegiant said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:24

    so jealous of preorder 1 people
    cant wait for preorder 2 :D

  137. ben said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:24

    Definitely got me with the title, but glad its all working out in the end. Best wishes on your success and can’t wait for preorder 2 to start so hopefully I can get one this time (someone didn’t get an email first time and had posted).

    Also can’t wait for some unboxing video’s and proper reviews.

    So – what about a picture-analysis?

    Aside from the stripes – what do we see? Anyone in electronics to speculate on the interior of the devices?

    Are adams ribs still in place?

  139. Lindr said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:25

    Vaporware!:) Well, someone had to say it….

    Congrats – can’t wait to see some hands on videos and reviews

    Waiting patiently for orders round 2!

  140. primarycloud said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:26

    Congratulations to Rohan and NI team. I am terribly excited at putting some of the birth pains behind us and look forward to the next phase of the venture– which should be even more exciting. Develping and expanding the potential and challenging the status quo or the existing paradigns. Let’s see where real innovation can push the barriers. Good luck.

  141. michel said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:26

    Sweet,

    Nice pics, is it just me or does some adam’s in the cart don’t have the white border but a grey one ?

    Greetz,

  142. adi said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:26

    ooo…so that’s the vapor factory…all those poor ppl trying to make thin air :P :P

    Hi everybody,
    is the os will be in french language for french user?
    Thks a lot.

  144. Hari said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:27

    Great News !
    Shipping starts tomorrow for the FCC and CE batches !!!!!!
    does that mean tat there is a non FCC and CE batch pending to be shipped ?
    please don’t say shipping for INDIA will be initiated only after dispatching US and EUROPE customers !!

  145. testifyin said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:27

    Thanks Rohan! I can’t wait to receive my tracking details. Okay, I have been following for quite some time. But now I cannot remember from where these units will be shipping. China or US?

    I do remember some weeks ago Rohan saying that there was already a shipment of devices waiting on US shores for their official FCC stickers prior to shipment. If shipped from the US, then the estimated delivery time should shrink significantly for American customers. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

  146. Raj said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:27

    Here we go. Ship … Ship …

  147. oldbushie said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:27

    Hooray!! So, pre-order 2 starts tomorrow, then? ;)

  148. adi said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:27

    @greg

    Nice idea to have a holiday :)

    But for sure it’s the beginning of jolly days for adam and adam family :)

    So much excited to see your adam recieveing celebration video

  151. adi said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:29

    its sarcasm

  152. Michael M said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:29

    Awesome! But must hide my precious from the wife or she will want it.

    As I said before, the heading made me skip a beat :)

  154. Samson said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:30

    Preorder 2 yeah… Rohan dont forget the unlucky ones from the family :) who were not able to order due to payment issues

  155. Cami said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:31

    This is the post we were waiting for :)!!! Thanks Rohan! Now, since we cannot whine about shipping delays anymore, we can start a new chapter: “Why my Adam is not here, yet?” or “I want user reviews!” LOL! :). And yes, of course: “I want the next order round!”

  156. Greg said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:31

    I am sooooooo prepared. I though I’d have videos online by now.

    I have the website ready as well as a youtube channel for hosting the videos and ustream setup for future live webcasts where people can ask questions about the Adam in real time.

    I even picked up a new 1080p camera for the videos (though I may stick with 720 as there is not a big difference once youtube processes them, and 1080 takes a lot longer to process than 720.)

    So you can count on videos (starting with the unboxing) as soon as I get my Adam… ;-)

  157. gecko said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:31

    Dmitry:

    > Everyone sees that there are Adams with white stripes and with black stripes?

    Those are camouflage. So, actually, everybody doesn’t see them, because that’s the purpose of camouflage. There were other ones that you didn’t see, of course.

  158. Greg said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:32

    That was my guess…

  159. Greg said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:32

    I wish!

  160. SAMADHAN RAUT said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:33

    The first thing which I wanna do on Adam is to Just open “https://notionink.wordpress.com/”and read my Waiting Comments!

    What abt u guys?

  161. boeltwit said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:33

  163. Joshua Price said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:36

    Yes, I got it. I gotta be honest, it was funny until your second self-reply. :)

  164. grEEEg said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:36

    I’d like the blurry one please…

  166. karen said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:37

    Your Adam is on it’s way, Biswajit!
    Did you see the one with the large B on it?

    Would this mean Rohan is in China with a hughe hangover from celebrating, or would it be that a less talented guy in the factory made these blurry pics?
    Those are sure no pics made with your Adam ;0)

  167. mino said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:38

    What you say on new iPad 2? dualcore procesor with PowevVR SGX543(like Playstation 3), full SD card slot(not only mini), mini display port and 2048×1536 IPS display

    This was an important post!
    Made many people happy, I think.

    Now we are only awaiting Pre-Order 2.
    That will make many more happy :)

  204. twospirits said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:50

    lmao, so true. But its Rohans’ way of keeping all of us on our toes by saying Delayed. lol

    Although, why are some of the images look like a car spy shot, all blurry and everything.
    Although I admit, seeing so many Adams almost brought a tear to my eye. lol

  205. d said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:51

    @Greg,
    If shipping starts tomorrow, when do you expect to reach adam in your hand? I can’t wait your videos.

    My mate and I are going to take take a day off and to enjoy some time with our Adams!

    Thank you, Rohan and NI – For showing us something in this dog-eat-dog world that there’s still something more than scheming companies with fat wallets.

  210. mrsmac717 said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:54

    Pleas, please Mr Postman….lol………

  212. Amber Egbert said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:55

    Rohan, I always hesitate to post to blogs like this because as I read comments, I hear the voices of many other people saying what I feel and what I mean to say. That being said, i wanted to post today just to let you know what an amazing job you have done.

    Just think about it. You have built an active community of thoughtful people from across the globe, all interested in and centered on a dream. You’ve faced opposition and challenges that have clipped the wings of other dreamers and kept them from taking flight. You have a “product” blog that gets hits in the millions, and thousands of comments on each post.

    And if the visible support isn’t enough, I will guarantee that for every active poster in the blog and on a bulletin board, there are at least 5-10 more people who are like me. Who will read, and follow and dream with you, but don’t take the time to send a personal note to you. You have accomplished some amazing things my friend, and I sincerely hope that this acheivement is only the first in a long line for you.

  213. devadatta said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:55

    Awesome. The pictures should go a long way to quiet down a lot of people over on Notionaddicts

    Thanks for the update Rohan

  218. Himanshu said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:58

    I should be honest here.. I am soooooooo jealous :) :)
    @All who were part of Pre-order 1 .. Congrats .. hope we will get the unboxing pics and videos of many of you(Pics will not take much of time).. Treasure it :)

    Now waiting for pre-order 2 .

  219. mrzeal said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:58

    Welcome the ‘delay’ :)

  220. d said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:58

    Warning! Warning!
    Pre-ordered guys, be careful! Your chance to be warned by your boss at office is very high in the next few days because you are not going to pay attention to your work at office because you are going to devote your time 24/7with adam! Don’t blame Rohan, don’t blame anybody, I already flashed the signal here!

  221. Jayachandran said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:59

    @Rohan
    I have no words to thank the team NI. and all the people supported and helped to have this good day with such a good news. Congratulations to you and all Adam family .

    And I have a humble opinion. Please try to read this . Take enough time to prepare to handle the different purchase options . This time let the ordering be a cakewalk for the people .pre-order or just order :) but it should be a smooth turnout this time .and let the whole world know if there are any limitations beforehand .

    Please do not mistake me for my comments . I am really concerned about our Adam like you all friends

  222. Sid said, on January 18, 2011 at 20:59

    Any reason you say that the FCC & the CE ones are going to start shipping tomorrow? Does this mean that all the ones that have been stamped thus far are going to start shipping or that the ones that don’t need the stamp have either already shipped or will ship later?

  223. Jason said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:00

    That made my day – can’t wait for Preorder 2

  225. Dirk said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:02

    This is so great news! Nice production pics :)

    Can’t wait for pre-order 2. Does anyone know if the eap@ email address is still
    working? I sent them an email that I was forgotten during the first pre-order so
    it doesn’t happen this time!

    @Greg: looking forward to seeing your videos. That will be fun. You need some
    powerful orchestral background music for the unboxing! :-P

  226. elliot hunter said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:04

    hey greg,
    people may have mentioned it before but i thought i’d just ask you.

    does anyone know how they’re being shipped? i.e. by air or boat or wombat? oh and from India or china?

    i know you’re getting one sent by carrier pigeon in the next 20 minutes or so. but has it come up anywhere else?

    just trying to guess how long it’ll take in transit.

    ells :)

  227. zaghir said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:04

    Can’t wait for pre-order2.
    Love the pics btw ^^

  228. Paul said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:04

    Great news happy that ppl will be recieveing their Adams soon,

    As i mentioned before, Rohan can you please clarify if or when Adam will be hitting retailers, its not about them amking millions they have more of a chance getting a foot hold in the market if they have retailers than internet sales alone,

    put it this way Jon wants a tablet he goes into dixons, he sees a tablet looks good, works good, has a number of features usb, hdmi, big screen, or does he go online buy a tablet that tech sites are not really mentioning.

    we want NI to make as much money as possible, even a small amount of information would suffice like it is in the pipeline for retail release

  229. Veeraraagavan said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:04

    Well that clears a lot of things! Thank you Rohan my friend :)

  230. Jahangir Kabir said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:05

  231. Sid said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:05

    absolutely will post those on “mynotionink.com” as soon as I get mine. But I have a feeling there’ll be many such images much before that.

  232. shyamgeek said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:06

    I am soooooo glad.

  233. kmctechguy said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:06

    ??????? :(

  235. RK said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:07

    Congrats NI and the ones that could order.

    So I was right when I mentioned in the previous post that the next round of orders would not happen until end of January.

    And then there are announcements, ordering, ordering to end and then delays, then shipping, then delivery…..Looks like those of us who wait for next round of orders will have to wait even longer to get it.

    And for no fault of their own. NI, you definitely messed it up big time. :-(
    So they’re not as excited as NI and those who could order are. ?Yes they’ll be happy but not as excited.

    And “pre-pone” ???? IT should be advancing the dates not pre-pone the dates.

  236. Benji said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:08

    Happy Day for Adam-ites!
    Now time to advertise when you guys get your Adams, show the world what and why we love this Amazing product so much, I’ve been doing as much as I can and have gotten about 10 other people very interested in the Adam one guy is a boss for a small distribution company in the area.

    Yay! Go Adam!

    And the title of this post “Delayed” is very apt ;-)

  242. Zach said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:10

    Shipping for non FCC/CE countries should have already started. They would have been shipped without the sticker per Rohan’s blog on the subject.

  243. anil911 said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:10

    Yes… Same here… Wen i looked into the title i just tough of John Biggs laugh n ‘i told u soooo….’

    Cool…anybody wanna swap LCD for PQi?

  250. RK said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:17

    Still no news on storage capacity and why the back track pad was removed.

    And no news on launch of Genesis. Release of SDK. Retail partners (if any). After sale service.

    Lots of loose ends that haven’t been tied up by Rohan and NI.

    Hi Rohan,
    I think now is a good time to create/open a offical support forum, because I think that there will be a lot of questions from the users.

    What do you mean ?

  252. elliot hunter said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:18

    yeah greg!!
    stop snuggling with it an review it will ya!!

  253. Jarrod said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:18

    Cool…anybody wanna swap LCD for PQi?

    I think I know that lady in the picture!!!!!

  254. Ramon said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:19

    Rohan how long we have to wait for you to get 2 pre- order open specially when you said
    it was alot of LCD ready for shipping and you want people to order LC D’s please let us order.

  255. Mark Chan said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:20

    Can’t wait for the full retail run of these babies!

  256. Jarrod said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:21

    I see yours!!!!

    Its the second one from the right on the 3rd shelf!!!!!

  257. Keng said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:21

    I think my Adam is one in those pictures.

  258. sjavangula said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:21

    Rohan –
    I am excited for all the luck one who ordered in the first batch even though I missed it.
    I see only black or white adams. What about the other color options? Were they available for the first batch?
    Eagerly waiting for 2nd batch pre-order. It would be great if you could give us the ship date too.

  259. gecko said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:22

    RK:
    > And “pre-pone” ???? IT should be advancing the dates not pre-pone the dates.

    Oh, it can do both. “Prepone” is an honorable word, with an impeccable Latin ancestry. And it’s an anagram for “propane.” “http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/prepone”

  260. Jarrod said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:22

    Wait…those are in China.

    I guessed a while back that the statement “on the boat” didnt really mean “on the boat”…but was a figure of speech.

    Yes?

  261. elliot hunter said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:23

    damn!
    i already told my boss all about the adam and when it’s coming!

    shoulda pulled a sickie too!!

  262. ORdiCo said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:25

    +1 Yeah!~ Pre order 2!~

  263. Vivek Gupta said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:26

    I think good points. Rohan – Can you clarify the immediate and future plans on these?

  264. Jarrod said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:27

    I thought he said ALL were going to have a FCC or CE number, whether they need it or not.

  265. niranjanrao said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:29

    Wow… Excited to see ADAM in my hands :)

  266. Jarrod said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:29

    Youre quite the gecko…that GEICO bloke aint got jack on you…

  267. Ben said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:29

    WOW!!

    The most beautiful, bad quality, pictures I’ve ever seen ;-)

  268. moni said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:32

    I couldn´t agree more. And I think there are many customers who feel better buying adam at a retailer or some established online shop in their country, too.

  269. Rama Maganti said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:33

    Congratulations Rohan and the entire NI team for all that you have done and endured in the past many months in bringing adam to life. The whole world can now see that “adam is born, is alive and is kicking”. Good luck with the shipments and safe arrival at the consumers end without any glitches.

    I like so many others am waiting for Pixel Qi+3g variant to become available for order once again. I hope I wouldn’t be disappointed like last time. Please take good care of the family members this time. I am sure they will be sold out within no time this time too.

  270. sanal said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:33

    yipppppeeeeeeee :)

    which one is mine from among the ones in the pic ;)

    Sounds great Rohan, but please announce the start of PO2 well ahead of time, wouldn’t want it to be as hectic as PO1 again…

  274. mki7680 said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:36

    Thanks Rohan! Almost ready to ship….can’t wait to get mine!!

  279. Carlo said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:41

    Good to be amongst the preponed ones!

  280. Rama Maganti said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:41

    Probably taken using a mobile phone.

  281. GotThumbs said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:42

    Excellent to see them shipping to US now. Congrats to all who were fortunate to get through the pre-order. I don’t think my work will purchase this as a replacement to my current motion tablet(new purchasing restrictions), so I’ll just have to purchase one for myself. Hope the wife will be understanding. :-) This is a much anticipated moment for all ADAM fans. I expect great things are to come for Rohan and NI. All the best.

  282. Dominic Fath said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:43

    it’s a rumor
    if true the screen is going to be expensive and I still can’t read it outdoors
    still a useless shape with that 4:3
    not even considerable…

  283. karen said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:43

    Fantastic news, have been waiting soo long..

    It was a good thing that I got up in the middle of the night to pre-order my adam, otherwise I would have been so horrible fustrated right about now..

    Sorry to all you guys that did not make the cut, I really hope that you will get a unit soon.

    Now we just need to take this to the next level and make Genesis a big success then there will be no stopping us.. :-)

    @Rohan: Any updates on the SDK?

  287. Matixs said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:47

    That’s beautiful. So many Adams. I hope I will be able to order it in next batch.

  288. kiran said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:47

    A little bit too mobile, perhaps.

    Thats how God made people.

  291. Dominic Fath said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:49

    This is good news, makes me even post after a two month absence :-)
    I wonder how much the production got ramped up to handle the pre order 2, it is going to be wild ;-)…
    Hopefully there will be a proper payment option so I can order my Pixel Qi version this time, after all the other concerns got cleared up that’s the only thing i’m worried about… and that ther will be to many ordering ;-)

  292. ken said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:49

    Will the Preorder 2 be this week or next week ????

    TNX !!!

  293. Biswajit saha said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:50

    I could see it and thanx karan. I was on a move still could manage to left my mark here.
    Rohan that was the kickass post. :) I was driving when i got the mail “delayed” just stoppeed my car started reading and smiled back.
    Rohan you know how to tease.

  294. Rahim said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:51

    Yup, you are right. Every Adam will have FCC and CE numbers on them.

  295. kadamaje said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:52

    Congratulations Rohan!
    Is there any place (BestBuy, Fry’s, etc.) where you can go and actually hold and get a feel for the Adam before actually buying it? I know currently you are busy servicing the pre-orders, but is the unit going to be in a physical store anytime soon? Can not wait :(

  296. Rahim said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:53

    Guys, hold on…

    Even if the your Adam is shipped to India, our great custom department will hold that for at least 7-10 days before it reaches to you.

    If you are the lucky one, it might take even 20-25 days, or in worst case you will have to go to foreign post office and pay big bucks to have it.

  297. Monty Sanches said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:54

    WOW !!! yey !!!! hurray !!!! who what when where….. hehehe

    Thanks rohan :) Extremely proud of ya all and waiting to order mine afetr we missed out on the first one !!!

    Congrats once again…. and hope this is just the beginning of a beautiful relationship between Notion Ink and us all :)

  298. Joshua Price said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:55

    True, I’ll give you that. You wouldn’t want to be the subject of an accidental Adamite DDoS. :)

    Besides, with our luck, some blogger will somehow only read your post, and no others. Then they’ll say “commentators called out the pics as being fake,” and then get DDoS’d themselves.

  299. DANYO INFLUENCE said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:57

    please do a “pre order 2 ” open it up for MC holders as well, i for one don’t have nor want an amex card i am very happy with my master card. can i expect a chance at a tab this 1st qtr

  300. thesensor said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:57

    Except it isnt an anagram of propane, there is no “a” in prepone.

  301. David said, on January 18, 2011 at 21:58

    Rohan, what’s the word on the other manufacturer where we can order the side strips from? From what I remember reading, you said it would be coming along soon. Can you give us a name/site to possibly order?

  302. Hidayatulla Khan said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:01

    move over PRE-ORDER 1 GUYS now…#2 already lined up….Q getting bigger…congratulations for the lucky ones receiving this week and to NI for delivering their dream…great news Rohan…well done…

  303. Tony McDonald said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:01

    How long do we think shipping will take to the US and Canada? A few days, a week, 2 weeks, etc?

    Thoughts?

  304. svetlik123 said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:02

    Actually, Greg, yours is not even in the pictures – already in boxed up (with Rohan’s special surprise gift) and out the door.

    Come to think of it, maybe Rohan’s surprise gift to you is to activate the bonus mystery feature, which will be wings and a jet-pack and you’ll have an Adam first-thing tomorrow morning :-)

  305. Amit Tambe said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:02

    Thank you for the reassurance Rahim!!

    BTW, does anyone know what Rohan means when he says the “FCC and CE batches” will be shipped tomorrow. I am in India – am I part of the FCC and CE batch?

  306. Biswajit saha said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:03

    Good to see you in top.

    I was left out of the first pre-order because thy did not accept Mastercard. Hopefully this time around they have that taken care of.

  309. Himanshu said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:05

    No matter. I am willing to see all my mates’ unbox pics :).And you with your photography skills are bound to click some really good shots.

  310. Thatcher said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:06

    Read enough about it… No need to handle it before I order… Just waiting patiently for my turn. Worth the extra time for the Pixel Qi…

  311. Pratik said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:07

    What do you mean ‘What do you mean?’?

    I don’t mean to be mean but I can’t guess why you’d mean to say ‘what do you mean?’, when he didn’t mean to imply anything that you couldn’t mean to understand.
    You know what I mean?

  312. Juliane said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:08

    Ich auch nicht :( Hoffentlich wird beim nächsten Pre-order Paypal akzeptiert. Denn eine Kreditkarte habe ich nicht…

    Ich kann es kaum erwarten!

  313. jalen said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:08

  315. Chebbinator said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:09

    @rohan This is awesome news!
    I can tell with the title of the post that you are mentally relaxed (relaxed from the bad pressure). Now you can get all worried about again with the good pressure!
    Congratulations! This is a landmark day! For a consumer product, mass production and bulk shipping is a key test!!

    Wow fantastic. Great news. What is the difference between the black strip and the white strip ones.

  319. Rama Maganti said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:10

    @Gecko
    Humour taken. I should have said taken with a “walking adam”. Would have sent a few panic signals all around.

  320. Biswajit saha said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:12

    “I believe we’ll get to see the next round of pre-orders pretty soon”
    you dont miss this time.

  321. Atul Tiwari said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:13

    I think Gecko has answered this question before.


    There’s this thing called a *metaphor* that it is good to be acquainted with. If Rohan had said that they’re in line to be shipped, you wouldn’t expect (1) them to be in a literal line – they might be in a pile – and (2) you wouldn’t expect them to travel by ship, even though he said they’d be “shipped,” since they’re going by airplane.

    Lizards have the reputation for being very literal, but sometimes you humans are really excessive.

  322. Gary said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:13

    Thanks for these pictures, this should finally make the ‘Vaperware’ Bloggers eat their words.

    I am really looking forward to getting the delivery of my Adam. :-)

  323. Rahim said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:14

    @Amit,

    It was based on my previous experiences. Sometime it takes even month just to clear Indian customs. I really hope you will get your Adam soon!

    I guess, he later said that All adams will have FCC and CE printed. So, no Adam shipped till now and will start shipping from tomorrow onwards regardless of the country.

  324. king said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:14

    Thanks for the update! I’m still counting down to the day I have ADAM in hand, until that day its still wait and see.

  325. Artajunappo said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:15

    My heart faint seeing all those ADAM ready for to be shipped … here we stand for pre order 2

  326. Kamlesh Patel said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:15

    For the past day I have been thinking all the places to use the ADAM and finally it will arrive soon. So HAPPY!!!

    Cheers to the NI team for this MAJOR achievement and a milestone to remember.

  327. Kromot said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:16

    i guess i can say it any better than all the people that has already posted!!!

    HELL YEAH!!!!… send it baby!!! i am so ready to try my ADAM now!!. welll first of all i have to wish for it to make it through customs with any trouble!!!..

    Cheers to all!!

  328. Pratik said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:16

    I just want to say that in the last year or so, the printing on N,O,I,T,K keys on my laptop has significantly faded. My name has I,T,K so I’ll discount those. But NO, the game is ON.

    It’s amazing that this if finally happening!

  330. Aaron said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:17

    Same here. Don’t know how I missed the PO announcement but there it is. So good to see some production lines finally rolling for the lucky few…jerks.:)

    Anyway I hope that the NI crew announce a broader release soon. Maybe feedback from the early adopters is important but from all that I’ve seen this product will be THE tablet on the market once production hits overdrive. I have no doubt.

  331. karen said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:17

    Yeah, thanx, oops…
    Pure coincidence, i have to say.

    ‘Pre-order 2 has yet not started because we are waiting for deliveries in US and European countries (that would mean that we are just a few days away from it).’
    Getting really excited by now!
    Only thing is, that customs can hold up delivery for some time (maybe even up to two whole weeks).

  332. Thatcher said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:19

    I can sense the excitement building like just before the first pre-order. I almost went into a crazed fit last time but was bummed when NI did not take MasterCard. I can tell it is going to happen again. I think the lessons have been learned and this time will be much smoother… At least I hope so!!!

  333. Suresh said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:22

    I think he meant “what do you think?”

  334. NoelDickover said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:23

    I’m going to endeavor to find a way to use “pre-pone” in a conversation today.

  335. Chebbinator said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:24

    BTW prepone is now an accepted word in the english language as part of the “Indian English” accent. Its a Indian invention – very logical if you were to think the antonym of postpone!

    There are two categories of people who read this blog and comment, (1) who get gecko’s wit and humour and (2) who don’t. You obviously belong to the second category my friend.

  338. Buju said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:25

    I’m hoping that it’ll come in Friday (to Montreal, Canada). If it’s Wednesday in China then that’s Tuesday over here. :)

  339. David Todd said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:26

    Finally, a glimpse at some hard evidence that they are on their way. I am a bit disappointed by the fact that they are over a week late shipping (Jan 9th shipping date), and that basically everyone who got to the pre-order will be shipped theirs at the same time making the ship dates somewhat unreliable, like many of the words that come out of Rohan’s mouth, but I’m glad to see that they will be on their way shortly.

  340. sachin said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:26

    Another member e-mailed Notion Ink and got the reply that the colors will be available from Notion Inks website in the near future.
    Maybe they are holding off on that until the next round of orders takes place?

  345. Breese said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:29

    Awaiting moderation… Can I please post ? Pretty please ? Been trying to get something on here but haven’t passed the moderation yet, but I’m persistent. :)

    I hope to see some pictures of lots of happy happy people with their Adam’s soon, so that they may share their happiness with the “I WANT ONE TOO”-crowd. Any news on the Adam is more than welcome. :)

    Hope the next batch of “pre-order/order 2″ pixel QI Adams will be rolling out soon!

    ps: my first post, which still awaits moderation, can be found in “Slow n steady, But with Dogged Persistence!” and was posted on January 14th, before that I was just a reader. Any other posts, just get deleted, so this one will probably also be deleted, but as I said, I’ll just keep on trying. :)

    The earliest citation on the Wiktionary page is from a 1913 piece in the New York Times, which does not customarily publish in Indian English.

    I wonder if it’s possible to say “Wiktionary” without sounding like an infant. I can’t do it, but maybe somebody can.

    Rahim, fortunately that hasn’t been my experience. My Amazon shipments were cleared by DHL in one day. Not just the kindle but also new products like the PS3 Move. I don’t even have to go to the customs for clearance! So I am a little more optimistic that you are. That is the advantage of using a renowned logistics company like DHL – they offer a one stop shop.

    I assume you’ve had issues when your friends have sent you stuff by regular courier (or by Fedex) – those guys don’t specialize in managing the customs authorities. DHL does!

  356. moni said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:40

    All those little Adam’s coming down the line
    All those little Adam’s waiting to be signed
    All those little Adam’s could one just be mine?
    All those little Adam’s Rohan you just blew my mind !!!!

    Rohan these pictures do speak many thousands of words. I have a February order. Until today I couldn’t imagine how late in February it might be. Those FCC numbers were really a big deal in the end. I must admit the waiting was tough for many. To those who kept the faith and hung in there with out a word of complaint my hat is off to you. To those of us, which has included me a time or two, that worried and voiced our trepidation, we hung in there as well. Now is a good time for all to celebrate!!! That includes those who didn’t get to order the first time around. For these photos of Adam’s getting ready to be shipped tell you this isn’t a dream, this is real, and your chance is coming soon.

    Rohan your dream,and Your teams dream, is before your eyes springing into action. This initial run of Adams say so much!! If Adam is only half as good as we all think it is, for you this will be a great start to,what very hopefully, will be something very big!! If Adam is very close to what we think it will be then that start is even more impressive. In either case my hat is off to you. To get this far you have proven you know how to win!! If you do not rest on these laurels, and keep pushing your dream ahead doing good diligence, and hard work, more and great victories will lay ahead. Take care of your fans and believers and they will take care you! With peace and love….Bring On The Adams

    I could have ordered the LCD screen model in “pre-order 1″ but held off for the Pixel Qi. Now I am regretting waiting!!!! Also didn’t Rohan say it the Pixel Qi screen only held an extra hour of battery (I think that was in one of the videos) Is that really true? If so I really should have ordered the LCD, except for the fact that that Pixel Qi screen looks so good in the sun and I live in Qatar!

  359. Friks said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:42

    Great!!!! When will be the date for pre-order 2?
    I can’t wait!!! I need one!!!

    Just curios, David, Did you not receive an e-mail that said it was going to be shipped late?

    I would say if anything Rohan should be accused of trying to be to reliable. Lets say you order something from Amazon or another big online place..You place your order and then basically wait till whenever to get your product. Or if you buy something from some other online electronic store, it’s just hit or miss. Maybe you get a tracking number that day maybe you don’t get one.

    I personally am very satisfied with the reliability of communication that has come from Notion Ink in regards to the shipping. Shoot I even sent them an e-mail and guess what…they replied that day. :p

  362. Tess.y said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:43

    Who’s the shipping company? I know it was DHL but they said they were not sure at some point.

    When I bought a Sony Vaio from Japan, shipped by DHL, it took a week. A few days to get to the warehouse of DHL in Canada ( I thought it was fast). But it was stuck in their warehouse as many (or more) days thanks to their inefficiency. I don’t know whether it was due to the cost of the product (~$1800), but I will give it a whole week for me holding Adam, just to be on the safer side.

  363. Biswajit saha said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:43

  366. Lakshman said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:45

    NI cannot ship without the FCC and CE approval…and the numbers printed on the device. Your complaint should be against the FCC (another lethargic US Govt organization).

    I hope this very winter weather doesn’t contribute to the delay and surely don’t want the transporting truck carrying my Adam flips over on the icy road. :)

  369. Lakshman said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:47

    Rohan mentioned in his previous post that the pre-order2 will start as soon as the shipment for pre-order1 is done.

    On a day when NI family rejoices on hundreds of Adam being readied for debuts into their arms…spare a thought for Mr S Jobs..who announced taking a medical leave… the guy who upped the ante for smart touch devices…wishing him good health and speedy recovery…..

  372. Gabe said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:49

    @Ramon – I think Rohan is trying to get one thing off his plate before putting on another. My guess is they have quite a bit of LCDs ready but are holding off until they get some more Pixel Qi units, have successfully delivered all the first pre-order batch units, and ensure they have a process in place that can handle the next ‘pre-order/order’ phase.

    Honestly, I commend the NI team for learning from past issues. I can already see the bad publicity and angry comments if they were taking orders for batch number 2 before customers received their Adams from Pre-order 1. While this is just speculation on my part, I believe previous posts from Rohan and video interviews from CES points to the delay of pre-order 2 for these very reasons.

  373. Biswajit saha said, on January 18, 2011 at 22:51

    I think Rohan has kept on reserved for you. you guys done a great job sticking up with rohan from the very start.
    Adam is incomplete without you guys and my deepest regards to you all.

  390. Wally West said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:03

    After the last month or so I can understand your skepticism. However it seems one of the biggest hang ups on the first pre-order was the FCC approval and numbers. Waiting on the government can be tough. Round 2 of ordering will take that one big hiccup out of the equation. If we remember Notion Ink put up the sold out sign when they would not have the supplies to build and ship any more Adams.. When they put the For Sale sign up again they will know how many orders they can fill based on materials they have access to. I would expect the process to go much quicker in round 2. The key to ordering in round to is likely to be assume nothing and be ready. I would be trying to find out about master card and be ready with an alternative means to pay just in case it isn’t offered. I would hope emails will go out to bloggers again, but I would not count on it. WordPress is a crazy place. Just be ready when the orders open to all!!!!!

  391. David Todd said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:03

    I haven’t gotten an email at any point stating a delay in shipping. No courtesy has been extended to rectify or explain delayed shipment.

  392. karen said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:03

    Please don’t say that out loud, Biswajit.
    Let me keep hope Rohan meant to say, as soon as the first Adams being shipped, instead of delivered :cry:

  393. sre said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:04

  394. Biswajit saha said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:06

    Spot on. Even if Rohan comes personally to deliver than also ppl will start finding fault. Or may be we are so involved with Adam that wait seems unbearable.
    Adam is not a product anymore its a Lifestyle.

  396. Suresh said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:09

    @David,

    Rohan did put up a blog post mentioning the delay due to FCC. I guess you must have missed that!

  397. Biswajit saha said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:10

    @Wally, Great lines and shows our love towords Adam.

  398. David Todd said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:10

    FCC and CE are/were the largest obstacles but I believe my biggest peeve isn’t the delay itself or who to blame for it, instead it is the continued lack of concrete information.
    I know I’m being selfish too, but when they state an early ship date I expect to receive it before the later ship dates.

  399. David said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:12

The day i receive Adam i will take a day off and it will be me & my Adam :) .

  417. Rahim said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:24

    Well, they have got points to write though.

    1) NotionInk posted few blurred pictures of a factory to prove that they have actual device and its not vaporware!
    2) They might ship the device in two different colors, though Rohan never mentioned it before and never communicated.

    and so on..

    Just eagerly waiting for their next post actually :)

    They have been running the line already and shipping they ones that came off, those are the ones without the FCC an CE numbers, Now the line has been retooled and is running again and the numbers are being applied, so as they roll off the line they are going to be shipped

    that is all he means.

    It’s been a long road but you guys have pulled it off!

    AMAZING … the richly conceived Eden OS .. FAR more than an “Android variant” .. the sweeeet hardware with features .. only SOME of which the MAJORS are only now trying to emulate .. AND the logistics maze of production and distribution .. along with all the time in communication.

    If it makes you feel better, those of us who have the later shipping dates will simply wait to open ours until we have confirmation that you’ve already received yours.

    Or not…

    Seriously, I get being bugged about missing your shipping date, by why do you care that others receive theirs on the time promised?

  435. Hanan said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:48

    glad to see that hopes and speculation finaly materialize into a product.
    I’m hoping it will live up to our expectations (performance, reliability), if it does – I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot of new apps tuned for the Adam.

    BUT

    don’t you all think its high time to stop with the mystery game.
    after all people will be receiving actual units soon.

    the time for buzz and hype is over – lets get all the specs and start creating an active USER community

  436. Benji said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:50

    If you remember awhile back when we were choosing colors,

    I believe he said they would at first make the 2 most popular one’s first then as soon as mass distribution got going kick out some more colors.

  437. Shritosh said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:50

    When is the pre order happening? When when when

  444. David said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:55

    He said, the backtrack pad didn’t meet there proformance expectations,
    The storage capacity was clarified, it is 8 gb. At some point in the future they are going to have a higher capacity, but there is no way they are going to even hint at it now, since it would effect current sales, Once you pre-annouce they next version will have more features and it will be released soon, people stop buying the current version.

    They did say Genesis was on the production model, if you watch the video on the main web site, they browse teh genisis store from the tablet.

    SDK and Retail partners, is something we need info on.

    Although I am pretty sure they will wait on retail partners for a while, since they should be able to sell more then they can produce just using the website, if they add retail partners, they have to give a cut of the sell price to them, Once production reaches a high enough level that it exceeds web demand, they will add retail to the mix.

  445. Dirk said, on January 18, 2011 at 23:59

    Yes, I know. I registered for EAP and was on the waiting list and therefore promised to be one of the first to pre-order but no pre-ordering mail came. So I’m hoping for the next batch :)

  447. David said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:03

    There is only white available, the black you are seeing just means they haven’t had the white strip added yet.

    He said additional colors strips would be available from their partners as an accessory you could buy, shortly after release, actually when he said it, he said mid January, but that is when he thought it would have shipped already.

  448. ola said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:03

    especially interested for those who missed out on first preorder…

  449. Mani said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:04

    Is that black / white edge a clue to mystery feature? The mystery feature is probably not technical, it is just “personalization” in the choice of color to match your dress?!

    If I am right, you can just make the notion ink match the color of your dress. How does it sound? Afterall it is a piece of removable plastic wrap that fits on the sides. Black or white or green or blue, you can probably get any color you want.

    Honestly I dont care, but girls would like it :-)

    but, some important things are missing for a great “customer experience/satisfaction” :
    – updated technical specs on website
    – mention of FM Radio (and removal of “Bonus mystery feature” ?)
    – the user guide on website, with all the details
    – details about the memory options
    – simple things need to be cleared off, for eg, can adam make native video calls on 3G ?
    – the software support link
    – organization of this blog as “development blog, support blog, features blog” or whatever you think the categories should be.
    etc.

    its time that you think beyond just adam fans, think about the people who heard of adam and visit the website for the first time – they should not need an adam fan to tell them what it is. and the last thing i want to happen is to get confused from users telling what adam is – not that they would lie, but one shouldn’t be parsing subjective blogs for adam specs ! i wonder why notionink.in is not a website where a potential or current user just gets his answers about adam.

    wish you a smooth take off,
    akash

    I think 2+ million Adam will be sold in 2011. If sumsung call sell a million tab defiantly NI can sell more than it. The only obstacle seems NI production capacity or else with Apple like marketing & production, Adam could out sell Ipad easily but rohan think slow and steady but with dogged persistence and that the way to do.

  459. David said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:12

    Not likely, he did say they are working on retail partners, but I think that since they will be able to sell all they can produce just off the web site, they will not be in a hurry to introduce a retail partner would will need to take their cut.

  460. Biswajit saha said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:15

    ++ cathy, we never accepted and Gecko still our official spokesperson.
    we need Gecko to “Zip the Lip”

  461. David said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:16

    That sounds about right, DHL says it takes 2 days to most of the world, but my experience is they have the sitting in the warehouse problem with a lot of items.

    So they pick it up in China, fly it overnight to the destination, and it then enters there regular delivery process, which is not as effecient.

  462. Cathy said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:18

    Dear Rohan and Notion Ink Team,

    We are SO happy for you and extend our heartfelt congratulations! Celebrate; you’ve earned it, and your family joins you :) What music are we celebrating with? Rohan, we need a lively suggestion!

    Now to wait, patiently again, for an opportunity to order an Adam …

    Thank you for your vision and persistence,

    Cathy

  463. David said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:18

    The black ones just haven’t had the white strip attached yet.

    only one color is available and that is the white strip one.

  464. Himanshu said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:21

    Will wait for your videos/pics. :)

  465. saied said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:22

    glad the days are finally coming here.

  466. Himanshu said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:23

    Btw just asking.. are you the same Aaron who also started a website along with his two friends and were in the process of developing apps for adam?

  467. CoolBone said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:24

    +239

    Want….soo…….much………

  468. Vector66 said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:25

    I REALLY cannot wait to order mine….PLEASE Rohan help us haha. I want to contribute videos to Greg and do cohosts on his Ustream :)

  469. Himanshu said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:26

    But NI capacity is 1,00,000 adam per month :). But if they able to sale initially in big numbers smoothly with positive feedback(which most likely will be the case ), I hope they will have enough backing to ramp up their production

  470. eric said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:27

    The latest buzz in the hater blogs is that y’all are a bunch of zombie fanbois and Notion Ink is faking the FCC/CE cert.

    I just mention it because I think it’s hilarious. TechCrunch in particular are more or less doubling-down on their criticism. I’m afraid they’ll be your bete noir for some time to come.

    The best revenge, of course, will be success. I recommend that instead of dueling them.

  471. Himanshu said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:27

    +1.That is the case. I don’t think adam will be in retails strores before 5-6 months .

  472. Vector66 said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:29

    I am REALLY excited to see them start shipping!

    I agree, I know things have been busy but the website again needs alot of work. I also agree that it isn’t just about the Adam fans anymore. If someone that never has seen this blog will be upset looking at things on the website and not getting all they should.

    There are huge questions about the memory and all…DEFINTLY think there should be a gallery on your website showing all these cool pics off on YOUR website and not send people to the blog.

    Totally think a real shopping cart is still needed and then for the payment gateway they can get sent somewhere else.

    Mike

  473. Todd W said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:29

    Any word on who the US shipper is going to be? UPS? USPS? FedEx?

    Since DHL won’t do home deliveries in the US, I can’t help but wonder who Rohan has lined up.

  474. bacillus said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:29

    I can’t wait to be able to order mine…

  478. Biswajit saha said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:32

    @cathy, You done a great job sticking up with rohan from the very start and shown your patience, support and dedication which i do respect a lot. Adam is incomplete without you people and my deepest regards to you all. I was among few lucky guys who jumped into middle and done with preorder but i personally believe rohon should have special window for you people “The special one” for the 2nd pre order so that without rush and hurry you can place your order.
    Regards,
    Biswajit.

  479. Miles said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:33

    Great news, I’m waiting for preorder round 2

  480. Himanshu said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:35

    I think one of the fellow mate has mailed NI.They talked about either DHL or TNT.Please mail the customer support team and you hopefully get a quick response.

  481. jmanin said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:36

    This is so exciting! The moment has finally arrived. So happy for you Rohan and to all on the NI team as all of the hard work is finally coming to fruition. Congratulations.

  483. Biswajit saha said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:38

    I know and if NI go with same speed it will be 1.2 million unit per year but with good sales & demand NI will increase its production. Its even benefited to their manufacturing partners so for every one its a win win.

    I hope there would be a count down to preorder 2. That way lot of us people who missed last time can time accordingly. Rohan, please do have a count down time for this pre order 2.

  490. Pravin said, on January 19, 2011 at 00:50

    Interesting, never heard of prepone until today. A little research shows its only used in India.

    Maybe the coinage will catch on globally like Adam

    You are always learning something new on this blog.

    Cheers

    Not sure if he is the same Aaron, but the one you are thinking of is at

    “http://exodusapps.com/” I emailed him a few days ago to see if he has the SDK yet, but haven’t heard anything,

    His website hasn’t been updated for a while now, he has the last tweet on Dec9th

  498. Jinesh said, on January 19, 2011 at 01:03

    Can’t wait for pre-order 2, especially after seeing them in production. I hope I get the email this time around.

    Go Notion Ink and Rohan !

  499. Håkon said, on January 19, 2011 at 01:03

    Hurray! cant wait to throw out my locked down iPad for the Adam! :)
    Go Notion Ink, and please keep up the good work with the software also after its release, to make it even better and get some native Apps available as soon as u can :-)

    ‘Prepone’ is not an English word.

    It’s commonly used in Indian subcontinent to mean the opposite of ‘post-pone’, but the rest of the world is largely unaware of it.

  503. casualcoding said, on January 19, 2011 at 01:05

    A historical moment for Notionink. Congratulations .

    I just ask again, sorry to bother you Rohan. When do you expect to ship the Pre-Order 2.

    Warm regards,
    Martin

  504. Tess.y said, on January 19, 2011 at 01:06

    Hahahah…but at least, they paid attention and wrote about Adam.

    I’m wondering about CNET and the likes. What would be their reaction once Adam’s photos and reviews by users / CG show up?

  505. send2dev said, on January 19, 2011 at 01:06

    Rohan should have spelled it “pre-p-ownzed”.

  506. jetfin said, on January 19, 2011 at 01:09

    Now I will be checking the order status every 10 minutes and drive my wife crazy!

    Thanks Rohan!

  507. Greg said, on January 19, 2011 at 01:12

    I don’t know when I’ll get mine. I asked Rohan about it but he has not replied…

  508. Greg said, on January 19, 2011 at 01:13

    That would be a nice surprise (first thing tomorrow morning).

  509. Greg said, on January 19, 2011 at 01:14

    Not sure what is going on yet. Still waiting for a reply from Rohan to let me know…

  510. Greg said, on January 19, 2011 at 01:16

    All I could offer at this point would be more speculation… I’m still wondering about the same things.

  511. jadefalcon said, on January 19, 2011 at 01:20

    I agree. I don’ t want just to get a great tablet. I want NI to go global!! And I have a selfish reason why. That way we’ll get the best customer service and NI will have the resources to develop the new apps and updates we will all want once it is in our hands. Also the retail partners will seek NI out and make shelp space available. : )

    Those are some bad pics but on purpose I suspect in order to hide some proprietary hardware from competitors!! Still they are wonderful to see. Thanks Rohan and the NI team!

  515. Biswajit saha said, on January 19, 2011 at 01:25

    He seems to be little busy but i am sure he has taken care of his commitment. I am extremal happy as rohan recognised your effort. I think by tomorrow you will get your tracking info so do check your pre order status.
    Good luck greg and once again you doing an amazing work & making us proud (loved the crunched article).

  516. Greg said, on January 19, 2011 at 01:25

    Hey Biswajit… Send me a link when you have your video online and I’ll put it on “notioninkfan.com”!

    Hmmmm. Maybe I should create a post like the CES post I did that links to all the unboxing videos…

    Congratulations! This is very special indeed!

    Slashgear reported that Microsoft is porting OneNote to iOS (they want their program on as many mobile devices as possible). Let’s suggest to them that the best tablet around should be their next target.

Iam trying hard to create an idea for the video and i think for you its more harder coz hell lot of pressure and responsibility on your shoulder. I know you will do great but we are family and always with you if you need anything. By the way i got a nice line for my video.
    That will be a good idea to create a separate post for unboxing video.

    Wouldn’t that be outstanding, Aad? OneNote is pretty great, I would love to be able to have a solid, note-taking app to use with an Adam. Combine that with the PQ screen for books and the Solara software they are partnering with for schools and you have an unstoppable educational machine.

  533. )oe( said, on January 19, 2011 at 01:53

    @Greg . While unboxing, don’t hurt the bow. It’s a footstand, remember ;) Saying this because of your enthousiasm and wanting to be the first with your video

    Hello everyone. Soon you will get your Adam. So time for action! People will start using the different apps on the Adam, the ones specially created for Adam and third party app. I’d like to invite you sharing this userinformation: goods and bads on
    “www.notioninkusers.blogspot.com” Will be helpfull for everybody. After a while the site will gather all information and make reports for the different apps: goods and bads (if there are ;); different uses (be creative!), remaining needs , apps still needed. I also hope developpers will come and look for the needs and who nows; if you cry hard enough, ones prayers will be heard!. That’s the meaning of the site: giving usefull information and giving summaries of needs , finest apps and how to use them. Also it will gather information for different workfields and different languagezones. I just started, so need first lots of your inputs to be able to order them and make it really interesting for people. You are all invited to share your experiences! See you there!

    This is really amazing. A company which shows the production of their very great and excellent product just out of the facility with shaked fotos just out of life.
    This is not marketing, this is just reality and a very good reality, and in this way kind of the best marketing I can imagine. No glamour, no superstars, no great music stuff, just the thing as it is. Perfect.

    Cant wait to do my order and get my hands on.

  549. Pramod Gururaj said, on January 19, 2011 at 02:14

    If you have been following this blog – you will know that there are dedicated sites related to the NI Adam that have been created by people. Please use those for these purposes. Opening and telling people about yet another website add stuff onto is useless.

  550. Cathy said, on January 19, 2011 at 02:14

    Hey Mike, Hi! Your work on Greg’s YouTube channel looks GREAT! Thanks on behalf of all of us, especially here in icy PA :)

  551. Gigantor said, on January 19, 2011 at 02:15

    OK…there’s no official logo for Notion Ink. That’s a given now. However, the Adam logo on the back is huge and also the text under it which should have been placed very discreetly in the bottom left and in black text so you can’t hardly see it, otherwise it looks very cluttered and unpolished. Would be nice to just see a siimple ADAM (in small case on the back (middle) of the device. I’m not big on the white edges because it looks busy seeing them all holes around the Adam when they should look less obvious and clean. I ordered mine in the more neutral Titanium Black but that’s not one of the options. Hopefully, more colors will be available later. Those are all nitpicks…the Adam is awesome just the same!

  552. Siva said, on January 19, 2011 at 02:16

    If my guess is right, the next pre-order will have higher memory capacity (may also be higher price). That’s why NI is waiting to get the first pre-order delivered, so that the customers done have an option of withdrawing the first order.

    However, I still could not guess, why NI is not going in for a full fledged release. May be they are waiting for the EAP members to develop apps that can also be released for content delivery.

    Aw, my humble thanks for your kind comments; more than I’ve earned. I just want to USE an Adam in my everyday life, like everyone else. I want to play music, play games, do a little work when I can’t carry my laptop, etc. etc. I’m thrilled for Rohan and the NI team; soon we’ll all be using Adam!

    They already increased the price of the Pixel Qi screens by $50. What they should do is decrease the price for the 8GB version by $50, increase the price by $25 for 16GB and increase the price by $50 for the 32GB version. But having different versions will get the ordering process even more complicated and costlier.

    8GB = $498
    16GB = $549
    32GB = $599

  561. Chebbinator said, on January 19, 2011 at 02:28

    The “propah” dictionary does state it as Indian English
    “http://www.oxfordadvancedlearnersdictionary.com/dictionary/prepone”

    prepone: prepone something (Indian English, informal) to move something to an earlier time than was originally planned.

    I guess we can give credit to Rohan for bringing it in to global usage!

    @Rohan:

    Last time we traded music suggestions, it was in the dark, wee hours 3am here in PA; I was trying to finish my work, and you were trying to get Adam to market … your music suggestion got me through another night of work. Missed you at CES, but …

    Now it’s my turn to return the favor: Here’s a couple of “Celebrations” for you, all easily found on YouTube:

    Kool and the Gang “Celebration”

    Rare Earth “I Just Want to Celebrate”

    Turn up the volume on that awesome Adam speaker system and play away!

    CONGRATULATIONS! :)

    Caught you :) you the one who went to CES upto pixelQi stall shows your love towards Adam. I know it was heart breaking for you at CES but 2012 will be diff story i guess.
    Good luck for pre order and hope you do it with ease.

    Yyyyyooooohooooooooo! I’ll get my ADAM ahead of schedule.

    People from IT interacting with Indians know pre-pone, i.e. pulling dates ahead of schedule. A term used by most people from the Sub continent. ;)

    Love you NI team!

  571. bikram das said, on January 19, 2011 at 02:42

    Rohan, the estimated ship date for my order still shows – February 2011 :roll:

  572. Gabriel said, on January 19, 2011 at 02:45

    will the adam 3g 900 series also support both the 1700/2100 frequencies?

    First Rohan slowly reveals the Adam with a red piece of cloth, now he shows it stripped bare in 2 of the images.

    Try this for a more forward sounding video.

  581. RK said, on January 19, 2011 at 03:11

    I’m still not convinced about the FCC certification as a requirement to sell. NI as yet doesn’t have a retail presence in US. As I understand it, FCC cert is required only for companies having a physical presence in USA.

    Given that scenario, all they needed to do was just ship the pre-orders (for those customers who wanted it without the FCC label. Almost all would’ve) just like e-commerce store selling tablets.

    There are many online sites that sell cheap tablets built and shipped from china. No FCC.

    And once NI gets the FCC, they could sell the tablets with that and sell through retail outlets in USA.

    NI chose not to for their own reasons which has not been revealed (so much for openness). NI was simply buying time.

    And they’re still buying time and not starting the next round of orders yet. If Rohan had been open about the full process of ordering and the real reason for delays, it would’ve been nice.

    This utter lack of professionalism is only cute in the beginning. What with the misleading title and the crappy pictures?

    A bit more relevant, it’s Tuesday, any news from the FCC that we can see online?

  584. gecko said, on January 19, 2011 at 03:15

    Yeah, LeoP, thanks. I don’t know whether it’s a case of bad spelling or bad breath, but I don’t want to get close enough to find out.

    tafilad:
    > ‘Prepone’ is not an English word.

    Sure it is – it’s even on the internet – but the Latin etymology is so transparent that I can’t imagine any objection to it, and it’s used mostly in India because Latin is a sort of rustic Sanskrit. And, you’re Welsh – don’t you have your own language? Mae gennyt ti yr avatar gorau, anyway.

  586. Marco said, on January 19, 2011 at 03:26

    When pre-order 2? Ship date of this?

  587. RK said, on January 19, 2011 at 03:26

    Why did 16/32 GB go down to 8? No explanations given by Rohan yet.

    I’m fine with no retail partners. But there might be some who are waiting for that. And tell them it would be after few months as demand is more just from the web orders.

    Another thing… When I looked at the 1st pic – I was wondering what are those guys doing kneeling so low on a what looks like a green assembly line!!

    Took my brain a minute to process (after I saw the guy in the back standing) that the pic needs to be rotated anti-clockwise!! LOL!

  591. Dr Doppio said, on January 19, 2011 at 03:37

    It needs to be rotated, resized… I am not criticizing the blurriness, whoever took the pictures may only have had a crappy phone camera, but some minor post-processing would have helped. Two of the images are identical. Very unprofessional and childish, imo.

    Just got back from Florida! Saw the news before I left :)

    In just a few days the forum and blog is going to be flooded with “how do I…”

  593. FJG said, on January 19, 2011 at 03:39

    In the US “Shipped” means sent out, by what was specified, air, ground, etc.. Look at the companies that do deliveries, their terminology is usually “shipped”. Most times for individuals, ground or air. Individuals in the US would not put up with using a real ship. We (including me) are somewhat spoiled, and to impatient in the US. The world is smaller with Internet and technology, and sometimes words are lost in translation. Rohan sometimes gets in trouble with words and translation, in English. Depending where you live, you may think he is deceiving you, when he is not. He is trying to be as transparent as possible, and occasionally gets in some “hot water”. At least he communicates, maybe not as often as you like, but he is always there and takes the hits with the praise. Everyone is learning from all of this. This is usually how a startup begins. Not a great deal of money for Public Relations, ads etc. I am glad there are still people like Rohan and Company, with a dream. I wish them all the best.

    With that said, I am anxiously awaiting delivery of my Adam!

  596. Chip Larson said, on January 19, 2011 at 03:51

    Plan on UPS doing the actual delivery to your door in the U.S. Two orders initially shipped to me by DHL were delivered by UPS, yet had DHL on the shipping label return address. NewEgg sent me an email on a recent order I made advising me of their DHL shipping to UPS delivery.

  597. gecko said, on January 19, 2011 at 03:52

    I tried to leave a reply there; don’t know if it showed up. He suggested buy an Adam and then selling it when Honeycomb tablets come out. I don’t know how to satirize this.

    I don’t know what to make of his taste, either. He’s a Frenchman who moved to Minnesota because – why? The weather is better? The food?

    it wouldn’t make any real sense.

  602. paulikxp said, on January 19, 2011 at 04:05

    UTTER lack of professionalism? Why don’t you go and buy your professionally advertised iPad? What’s the problem with the blurry pictures? Why do you as a consumer need to see the FCC details? It’s absolutely sufficient to actually have the FCC number (if you are in the US) and to see Adam is in production with a sticker which certainly – even without a hi-res evidence – encloses the cherished number.

  603. cLuE said, on January 19, 2011 at 04:05

    Yea I can’t wait to find out when the next orders will be taken and when those will be shipped. Hopefully soon, I mean once the first pre-orders are out then the product is officially out right? So hopefully we can just order one soon and not have to wait too long.

  604. pepe said, on January 19, 2011 at 04:06

    The ordering gets more complex? How about building this stuff en masse, ordering parts, estimating and adjusting production numbers? How about not penalizing all pre-order customers buy immediately releasing a 16/32GB version only a few days later?

  605. Laurens said, on January 19, 2011 at 04:06

  608. Dr Doppio said, on January 19, 2011 at 04:15

    I don’t want an iPad. It would take VERY little effort on part of Mr Shravan to rotate the images, remove the duplicate, and NOT try to be funny with misleading titles.

    The FCC info was supposed to be posted yesterday. It should be available AT LEAST TODAY, don’t you think?

    I would expect you as a consumer to hold the company up to high standards. Support and enthusiasm are good, but when they turn into blind faith and fanboyism it’s a different story.

  609. paulikxp said, on January 19, 2011 at 04:19

    I don’t think you can’t gather that only from the colour of the wires. That could be everything, even if it’s too large for such a small amount of internal memory.
    Could be the display controller or the radio unit. There will be one these web pages which open a new device as soon as it is available. And at least then we will know.

  610. pauyeung said, on January 19, 2011 at 04:22

    Damn nice too see that wonderful wonderful machine finally ready to leave its nest and take the first leap into the beautiful world of excited new users…

    But, as everyone else says, when will the rest of us get a chance to buy it?

    As a developer, this is THE tab I am waiting for to test my apps on! This is where the standard is set and this will be my first and probably only Android Tab for a long time!

    And as a keen gadget lover, I just can’t wait to get my hands on it, and rub its beauty and performance in my iPad-loving friends’ faces :-D

    Give me, Give me, Give Me!!!

  615. Manjunath said, on January 19, 2011 at 04:55

  616. Prad said, on January 19, 2011 at 05:00

    There is a cross-conformity Agreement between Australia and EU, so I guess it shouldn’t be problem getting this product from Notion. if the conformity certificate was issued by a Notified Body laboratory then I don’t think it is a problem.

    If people can get cheap Chinese Android tablets on eBay. Then Notion Ink’s is safe to import.

  617. Cash said, on January 19, 2011 at 05:00

    This is the first time in my life that I am excited and ready to spend my money but can’t (come on preorder 2). Great job Rohan and team, what you’ve managed is nothing short of amazing. I can’t wait to waive my Adam in the face of my uncle who said “the product will never ship, Apple won’t allow it.”

  618. Dr Doppio said, on January 19, 2011 at 05:01

    No, but I have developed a distaste for sloppiness. If you’re happy with the images, enjoy.

  619. Ben said, on January 19, 2011 at 05:11

    FCC is on the bottom of every laptop I have ever owned in Australia although I think its just because that is the basic standard. I certainly hope my Adam comes with FCC or at least the option to have a sticker sent at a later date to put on the adam if its going to miss my shipping date to oz :)

  620. Zach said, on January 19, 2011 at 05:24

    Um, how would the FCC info be available yesterday? It was a national holiday here. Government workers don’t do anything on holidays and are at about 50% the day after the holiday.
    Of course, I do agree with wanting to see it. Seeing is believing.

    Can’t wait for the package to arrive, a very welcome update.

    Let’s see some high quality pics if you don’t mind that way I don’t have to open adam myself for a look see.

  623. jmoroh said, on January 19, 2011 at 05:29

  632. David said, on January 19, 2011 at 05:47

    Exactly normal orders, but he did say he was going to take care of those missed, so they likely will get access to an email with an order link,

    then a little later the regular order page will open,

    only thing that will change is estimated shipping dates, that should change over time. getting shorter and shorter as they are able to increase production to meet demand.

  633. David said, on January 19, 2011 at 05:49

    I hope slashgear and some other sites receive their Adams too .. From the CES videos, the 3 panel view looked laggy and the colors were slightly washed out … Need to be sure before pre?ordering

    There has been no other intimation regarding timelines of future s/w updates .. viz. open GL, e-reader updates, paneling in potrait mode (?)
    With the longbox partnership, I am presuming that the .cbz and .cbr formats will be supported
    Genesis is wayy overdue .. Hoping to see some interesting apps there..

    Waiting for some quality weekend posts ..

  641. alex orodi said, on January 19, 2011 at 06:12

    What I would like to know is: when the pixel Qi unit is in the standard mode will it have brilliant colors like iPad or Samsung or any other tablet out there?

  642. finndo said, on January 19, 2011 at 06:14

    missed the pre-order, waiting for the next!

    I do believe they have not done a second round of pre-orders because they will make the 16GB and 32GB available. The reason they are not doing it before the first gen ships, is because the investors won’t fork the money over to do the production until the first full shipment has been received by the end users. I am sure by now NI is floating on credit and used the pre-order money to pay the factory workers.

    Once they get the go ahead from the investors they will put up pre-orders for the next models (different colors and memory sizes).These are the things you have to deal with when you are a startup relying on investors. I also think that the camera should have been better, I have an HTC Evo and the 8mp pictures are disappointing even. I am glad we get full sized USB, but I do not understand the point of the micro USB port, and can you charge the Adam from the USB or do you have to use the AC adapter?

    I am buying the Adam for the PixelQi screen, Eden is nice, might not use it too much though, not until they find a way to “force” phone apps to launch in leaves. I do see the point in the email and calendar apps in leaves, I will prob leave (pun intended) those running all the time (maybe calc and a notepad too)

  644. RaptorX said, on January 19, 2011 at 06:22

    no of course not. It’s not a mirasol display (eInk with colors). The whole screen gets in “grayscale-mode” and if you turn the brightness to 10%, you have colors. This screen is almost like a ebook-reader.

    Asking the preorder support the question : “As I am not located in Europe and US will my Adam not be delayed by the FCC approval?”

    The answer was : “All the Devices would be printed with the FCC and CE numbers and only then they would be shipped”

    Actually everybody who pre-order even the 1st batch is waiting !

    Rohan,
    ADAM is excellent… But what about the Customer Support and After Sales Support…???

    why? Your hand covers most of this text when you use it. And it’s on the backside… I think this won’t impede you :D

  649. jared said, on January 19, 2011 at 06:32

    because if they are shipping from china, and they are shipping on wednesday, dhl needs to pick up by the evening hours. if all automated to notion ink’s website then we should see some tracking number show up soon.

  650. David said, on January 19, 2011 at 06:45

    What I can’t understand is why there isn’t anything in the market as of yet. Or will there only be a link on the Adam?

  651. Robert said, on January 19, 2011 at 06:47

    As soon as it gets here I’m writing an awesome review. Until then I’ll scour the internet looks for blogs that have dissed the Adam to comment hatefully! This is the job of a true Adam-ite!

  652. rowan fire said, on January 19, 2011 at 06:50

    You have no idea what you’re talking about. When at full brightness, the difference between regular LCD and Pixel Qi is said to be slight.

    Just how much that difference is, is one of the things I’m most curious to know. Hope some tech sites bought one of each. I’d like an unbiased report (one comparing an Adam to an Adam, or at least a device with a screen of the same type and resolution–*not* an ipad with it’s LED, IPS screen).

  653. ramana said, on January 19, 2011 at 06:59

    It’s possible that they really don’t want to show you high-res pics. Don’t you think?

  654. Anand Shah said, on January 19, 2011 at 07:09

    This is the advantage of the NI community… as you saw from the NI videos that you can use adam to act like a keyboard / mouse and remotely control a machine…

    You can potentially do two things that could act like a docking station…

    – Use a USB hub or a universal docking station, connect a keyboard / mouse networking combo ot it… and just dock adam using a stationary usb connection… and that is docking for you..

    – Another sexier alternative is to port “http://synergy-foss.org/” to adam that way, you can control the adam using keyboard / mouse using this technology, which is wireless and the reverse of what rohan showed in the demo…

    Thanks for the support with data ;)

    I am curious, where do you get these numbers? The FCC site (any US gov site) is a navigation horror to the lay visitor… It took me quite some time to identify the page where the posting about Adam should eventually turn up…

  662. Dr Doppio said, on January 19, 2011 at 07:39

    Again, not talking about the resolution, but rotation, duplicates. Sloppy.

    I DO think, unlike most of the “OMG IM SO HAPPY” posters around here.

  663. Gigantor said, on January 19, 2011 at 07:42

    My take is that in transmissive mode, it’s like an LCD in full color. In reflective mode, it’s like E-Paper Display in b&w. In transflective mode, this is the middle so I would think it has 50% color saturation which combines transmissive and reflective modes.

  666. Tim said, on January 19, 2011 at 07:53

    I am responding from a Toshiba laptop. It has Toshiba emblazoned on the top in letters that are3\4 inches high and the name is about 5 inches long. The FCC sticker on the back is about 2.5 inches x 2.5 inches. Proportionally given the adam is about half the size of my laptop it all seems about right. Oddly enough it never occurred to me to complain to Toshiba about how ugly it was but then like a car I am more interested in what is under the hood than the shape of the fenders or the styling of the wheels. To each his own I guess.

  669. Gigantor said, on January 19, 2011 at 08:05

    I totally agree. It’s in four face ugly! Less is more. It should have been placed more discreetly in very tiny dark text. Maybe it should even justa sticker so you can peel it off later. Ugh! hopefully the ones coming out in store shelves will not have this FCC crap in the back, it takes away from the good looks of the Adam.

    +1 if you agree!

  670. James said, on January 19, 2011 at 08:16

    Well done :-). It has been a lot of work, but looks very nice. When can the rest of us order one though? I did leave a comment here before the first pre-orders were announced but I never received a pre-order email… That’s no problem, since I’d rather pick one up when I next visit the US, which could possibly be February. Will it be widely available on that kind of timescale?

    Cheers,

    James.

    @all
    Bad virus wiped out my computer. So for a day I dreamed all the happy faces of many here holding their Adam. And this evening when I open my e-mail box…I felt happy for those who have been waiting patiently, and for those who have sweating like boxers in front of their screens.
    So, thanks Rohan for reassuring us with those pictures that you are keeping your word of bringing Adam ASAP.

  672. jaytea said, on January 19, 2011 at 08:25

    Hi Rohan, Great news.

    With tablets arriving soon, new owners are going to be wanting apps ASAP.
    Can you tell us when Genesis will be available?

  673. elmelao said, on January 19, 2011 at 08:28

  675. brian said, on January 19, 2011 at 08:35

    Rohan, I sent an email to your support email address on the 29th of December inquiring as to what color the Adam will be shipped in and if I have a choice. Here we are, the day before shipment and I still have no clue because nobody has returned my email. I see in the pictures that there is a black and a white version. Well?? Are the side pieces interchangeable and that is your surprise for us or am I getting some random color that I don’t want??? I hope when I actually receive my Adam that I do in fact GET SOMEONE FROM TECHNICAL SUPPORT TO RESPOND TO MY EMAILS IF I HAVE AN ISSUE.

    Loyally,
    Brian

  676. seabeetodd said, on January 19, 2011 at 08:39

    yes the colors are interchangable but other colors are going to have to be ordered
    I believe it comes with white and if you take that off it will be black

  677. Ben Smith said, on January 19, 2011 at 08:43

    The face-plates are interchangeable. I have yet to see anyone have definite information as to whether the white or black faceplate designates a specific model.

    I have visited all the other sites, and they all look they interested in supporting NI Adam.
    I liked his blog too. So, the more the merrier! It tries to address different needs.
    As long as you respect other Adam related sites, and as long as you keep it updated, it’s all good.

    Good luck Joe.

  682. Martin L. said, on January 19, 2011 at 08:48

    Be careful what you wish for. You wouldn’t want NI to hold your order until the end just to make sure you get your favorite color. It may miss the boat and get pushed back a month or two.

    In all seriousness, Rohan did mention in an early post that the plastic strips on the side are interchangeable, and that other colors will be available at a later date. I don’t think any of us will be paying much attention to that side piece when our Adams arrive.

  683. elmelao said, on January 19, 2011 at 08:48

    Actually in the interview with Charbax, Rohan refers to that issue.

  688. AlbertWertz said, on January 19, 2011 at 09:10

    this doesnt make any sense, only Rohan knows why the second round has not been posted yet. IMO it will have the same specs as the first round. He needs to bring the cost of production down before he starts making other variations, I dont think we will see larger internal memory until the summer or with Adam 2.

    FYI Rohan has already said they dont require the money of the first shipment to float anything. They have a huge investor and they are taking it one step at a time to maximize efficiency and make modifications as problems occur. it is bad business to produce a million tablets that no one can sell. Make them in small increments first ship them and build demand.

  689. AlbertWertz said, on January 19, 2011 at 09:11

    LOL, I thought they were kneeling down above the production line and observing LOL…. I guess it did need rotating hehe ><;

  690. hank said, on January 19, 2011 at 09:12

    check back and I think they mentioned that all the colors would be sent in the january orders.

  691. AlbertWertz said, on January 19, 2011 at 09:13

    They produced before they got the numbers, next round should be imbeded in the plastic Rohan, so white doesnt stand out…

  692. AlbertWertz said, on January 19, 2011 at 09:18

    My impression is that the Pix Qi screen was made with an extra silver layer that reflects light to bring the picture to you with ambient light when backlight is off, this silver layer has bunch of holes to let back light through and reflect ambient, the cost is a slight silver addition to all colors presented which make them appear less vivid as a current LCD but still very good. When the back light is turned off, the image is still presented in color, but much saturation is lost, one of the videos show some saturation in full ight with back light turned on, but still an increased silvery appearance of the colors due to that extra reflective layer to reflect ambient light…. just my impression of the technology

  693. brian said, on January 19, 2011 at 09:21

    Now I feel like an idiot. I totally remember that post after you replied. Sorry Rohan! I still would have liked a reply for my email inquiry though……

  694. Amit Tambe said, on January 19, 2011 at 09:30

    I didn’t get away with not paying. DHL factors the customs duty into their shipment pricing, so they pay and clear it for me.

  699. Mistry said, on January 19, 2011 at 10:10

    In one of the CES videos (I think the CrunchGear one), they mention that all support will be online (email), call-a-number (like regular warranty support), and “later” through partners/local service centers. “Local” possibly being US and EU where most of the Adams have been sold.

    Of course, if the hardware issues start showing up, then various countries and/or areas will have service partners as mentioned, otherwise… I’m sure they’d like to keep that cost at minimal and avoid for as long as they can.

  700. dawcx said, on January 19, 2011 at 10:21

    I think the comparisons should include who it what was made by. Adam wins that hands down. No other company with tablets at the top of the list have a dream like NI has

    why would you even want to read it? If you own an iPod Nano would you want your FCC letterings to be that big?…heck that’s 5 times the size of the Nano!

  711. Rahul said, on January 19, 2011 at 10:54

    Simple answer-No. Apple and Samsung make some of the best colour LED displays in the world- Apple uses LED IPS technology and Samsung *makes* AMOLED, SuperAMOLED and other Super-displays. So, of course the ADAM using a cheaper normal LCD display will not have colours as brilliant and vibrant as the iPad or any of the Samsung dispalys- Even the LCD models, let alone the PQi Models.

    These are unrealistic expectations, people. I’d rather not have these expectations and certainly feel disappointed later.

    I think I agree with Albert on how the PQi screens functions.

    The display quality is not bad- Its not the best either.

  714. Gabe said, on January 19, 2011 at 11:02

    I agree with the FCC site being horrible to navigate. However, my main contention with your point is to blame Rohan and NI for the FCC not having the site updated. While I’ll admit that I have no knowledge or experience with the FCC and how these things are handled, the idea that their website not being updated with the latest information seems quite possible. Just as you accuse those who enthusiastically support NI as being blind fanboy’s, I’m curious if all these constant negative articles from tech sites are causing you to be paranoid no matter what information is being presented by Rohan.

  715. HO WING KIT said, on January 19, 2011 at 11:02

    How about the packing? or only packed by a bag?

  716. Gigantor said, on January 19, 2011 at 11:07

    That Adam lettering on the back is GINORMOUS!

    Now if it’s chrome and debossed like this:
    “http://lxixixl.com/keyword/vaio%20pictures/140/1/”

    then it would increase its awesomeness! But it looks like it’s just a sticker and it would have been nicer if it was smaller and subtle.

  717. Gigantor said, on January 19, 2011 at 11:13

    Anyone noticed on the shelves? There are black-edged Adams! I guess Titanium Black is after all available.

  718. Pankil said, on January 19, 2011 at 11:24

    Ya, you are right. It’ll ship in the same red plastic bag as shown in the pic. Also you might have to assemble the back on these tablets once you get them. hope you have a Phillips screwdriver. :-)

  719. Rahul said, on January 19, 2011 at 11:25

    Really? You want the FCC/CE sticker to be chrome/debossed? Really?

    ADAM logo would look nice that way, but after all it is the backside and no one can really see the backside as clearly when in use.

  720. JoRiDe said, on January 19, 2011 at 11:27

    If you look closely at the last pic, most of the adams are face down but two on extreme right are face up and they seemed to be turned on with similar apps running.

  721. JoRiDe said, on January 19, 2011 at 11:28

  722. mark mullins said, on January 19, 2011 at 11:34

    so with the reality finally upon us, as i was thinking about how the ADAM will change my life .. i thought i should ask the crew a question… so here goes…

    What 3 Eden UI apps will you use most often, and in what order will they be on your ADAM?

    (self)
    left = Mail’d
    center = NotesApp ( i am hoping this comes soon to the Eden UI )
    right = Sirius / XM Radio ( needs to be developed for Eden UI)

    (spouse)
    left: FaceBook
    center: Facebook Scrabble
    right: SMS Client

    so as in the movie Dune … long live the Eden UI ….

    furthermore … i have concluded that the Eden UI Apps are to XOOM Honeycomb Widgets like a 60 inch LED is to a 20 inch monitor … really do people not understand the transforming functionality of being able to look at a single screen, and do 3 things at once … and carry that with you everywhere ?

    would love to hear everyone else’s 3 leaves of Eden … :)

  723. RoryH said, on January 19, 2011 at 11:35

    Fun activity for everyone:

    1) Open your favourite drawing program (or Word if you’re good with shapes, or even a piece of paper and a pencil)
    2) Draw a rectangle 19.1cm x 26.9cm (it should be able to fit on an A4 page in landscape)
    3) Divide the width of your rectangle into 3
    4) Divide the height of your rectangle into 3
    5) Print the page

    You should now be able to see the dimensions of Adam, as well as estimate how large the logo and FCC/CE text appear.

    Enjoy!

    i guess we all can be dissapointed if what the spec is somehow not met in the real product.. more than anything not just because it does not meet the spec, but because some body lied to us… i guess so far we have not get a lie from Rohan, instead he has been very sincere in my opinion when it come to face us the angry and impatient ADAMITES when it come to delays and all that kind of stuffs….

    however… comparing with specs we may be quite disappointed, but comparing to most of the tablet we will still have a over spec-ed device that is covering for much more needs than many other…

    so… hopefully we don’t get disappointed at all.. and this are just rumours as the title says…

Though you don’t find the word in many dictionaries, a lot of people have accepted and started to use “pre-pone” instead of “advance” – for schedule changes in meetings etc. :)

    I agree to your comments regarding NI’s stratergy. It is always good to see couple of peopl being critical and give constructive critisisam. Recently there has been a fanboy fanatic comments all around the blog. This is becoming a religion than just a belief in a very good product if it turns in to a religion then there won’t be any difference between Apple fanboy’s and Ni fan’s. Believing and following a good product are good as they still have a critical view attached to it but once we start worshiping then we all can go blind and every doing will look like a good thing and this in turn will lead to wrong impressions about NI ..

    I just want to causion peopl that be fan’s (i am one of them) but don’t loose the critic in you.

    I don’t remember who but some one said “asking the right question is much better than knowing all answers”

    So, if you want me to increase my effective work in my shop, start “preorder II”

    I’ve already crafted a 3D Version of ADAM (made of thick paper) to “feel” how it handles….

    Can we expect this weekend preorder2 and retail information?

  746. Ingermaaike said, on January 19, 2011 at 13:55

    I am very much looking forwards to seeing the flood of vids on ADAM being unpacked :)

    Any timeline on the next available batch?

  747. Pratik said, on January 19, 2011 at 13:57

    ‘Notion Ink’ is killing on twitter right now after the engadget post –

    twitter.com/search#search?q=notion%20ink

  748. Gigantor said, on January 19, 2011 at 14:05

    Not the FCC/CE sticker of course. As I mentioned before those should be barely visible because they are hideously taking space on a nice clean look of the Adam. They look like grafitti. As for the Adam logo, it is very nice but it would be nicer if it’s smaller (classier looking), silver or chrome (looks sleeker and expensive), and impressed/debossed (speaks quality, because a sticker or just painted will wear off just like the key letters on your keyboard).

  749. zex said, on January 19, 2011 at 14:16

    It’s true.
    & Adam still got the edge, but i read Pierre’s blog for a quite long time – and he knows what he is talking about. Truth is that “article” is entitled – …rumours…
    What more can we say – “patience and discipline” – let’s wait and find out for our selves.

    All best

    Zex

    ps i’d like to hear more about 2nd order session.

  750. toque said, on January 19, 2011 at 14:21

    Thx a lot !!

    When start preorder II? Please Rohan!

  753. Ravi said, on January 19, 2011 at 14:48

    I guess, we need an official forum. lot of comments going unnoticed.

  754. Pratik said, on January 19, 2011 at 14:49

    You complain a lot.

  755. Sid said, on January 19, 2011 at 14:55

    i’m no where as big as “notioninkfan.com” but I’ll put it up on “mynotionink.com” too if you send the link across…

    @greg. i’ve linked u’r site from there too…

    also all of us who own various notion ink sites should figure out if we can collaborate somehow. I’m in the process of setting up the site properly.

  756. James said, on January 19, 2011 at 14:57

    Great to see this. Any update on when the next batch will become available for ordering and if MasterCard will be accepted this time around??
    Good luck to all who get the first set of tablets, I really hope they work as good as they look!

  757. Pratik said, on January 19, 2011 at 15:00

    Why do you even visit his blog? He’s a Trogger.
    Troll + Blogger = Trogger (A little word I invented).

  758. Veeraraagavan said, on January 19, 2011 at 15:01

    @Sisirnath,
    Yeah, I agree, I am also a bit overwhelmed by the fanboy thing. Though maybe it is due to the reason that some of the critical fans have shifted to the two unofficial fan forums (which I have not checked for a while – and am hoping for an official forum soon, for the reason of fragmentation).

    Now coming to your comment, I couldn’t navigate to comment 79014 – think that is the one under moderation – I could find 79101 though, and in that:

    “I have few quick comments about “Solaro”

    1. it is not using any of the sandard Edan UI elements except the book marks
    2. It mimics the apple aap it has “http://solaro.com/pages/mobile” no difference here
    3. It is the first app where I have seen a full spread leaf (occupying 2 leaf spaces) which is good but when needed it can use the middle leaf instead of using a pop-up..
    4. pop-up are less productive “http://www.webpronews.com/topnews/2003/07/23/why-popups-are-popbad” and using pop-ups deviates from the actual benefit of using three leaves for Eden.
    5. The visual style of this app must match Eden if it is coming pre-loaded

    Cheers NI team. Looking forward for my GIFT (adam) from NI …”

    Your feed back about the popup is very much valid, and I feel the Adam version of Solaro will improve with time and adoption. It is one thing to have content, but if you do not have enough devices, it is not gonna be adopted soon. And this could very well be a very early version (being shown in public).

    @All, Rohan
    And in continuation to my concern comment in the smiley page: I am seeing a bit of one of my old managers in Rohan – to him my best advice as a well wisher would be to “Let Go” and everything else will fall into place! We all know its your team’s baby but then it is growing @ an exponential rate, which needs you people to shed your protective shells to some level. For example, a simple update on the the pre-order status page about FCC/CE issues would have been enough – would have saved a lot of trashtalk from blogs and speculation from all sides, and pain for customers.

    We all were and are supporting you. All the best, and hope you understand!

  759. maharaj said, on January 19, 2011 at 15:02

    Hi Rohan and the rest,

    In the prototypes in the beginning of Adam Rohan demonstrated a touchpad on the backside.
    In the pictures I don’t see the pad anymore..
    Why is that??
    Is there no touchpad anymore?

  760. Pratik said, on January 19, 2011 at 15:17

    No, there isn’t.
    They dropped it since it wasn’t as functional as they’d have liked it to be.

  761. boeltwit said, on January 19, 2011 at 15:18

    This is a very good news.
    I’m really looking forward to read the reviews to see that the “dream” is “real” and it is the best product in the market.
    After checking how good it is I will make my order.

  769. Bernd said, on January 19, 2011 at 15:31

    I wonder if the Adam probably has one of those new invisible IR touchpads on the backside ? Would be very mystical…;)

  770. ordzo said, on January 19, 2011 at 15:32

    interesting… is navigation software included…?

  771. magic51 said, on January 19, 2011 at 15:34

    Wonder what the box will look like? Also what “extras i.e. manuals, cables etc will be in it.

    What I need is an unboxing vid posted!

    Better check my shipping status! :-)

  776. Pierre mathieu said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:11

    Now that adams are about to be shipped wouldn’t i be time for NI to tell us more about their service policy? Are they going to have after sale services for repairs and maintenance in the different regions of the world? shipping the product back t India doesn’t seem to be a solution for most of us living on other continents.

    sic !!!! i’ve missed the pre-order because my credit card was refused :(
    support told that i should change my credit card or wait for a probably other round of pre-order :(

    i’d love to have mine , you guys are F… lucky :)

  780. Rahim said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:17

    what does “Out for shipping” exactly mean? :) Are they kept outside of the factory and waiting for their turn to get on to the truck? :D

    Doesn’t DHL truck picks the shipments from the warehouse?

  781. Rahul said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:17

    It has been up for some time now- Right around the time when Rohan started his one video a day scheme :)

  782. Rahul said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:18

    Refer “www.notionink.com/legal.php”

  783. Rahul said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:20

    They pick from the middle of the forest, if required (According to one of their advertisements in the Indian TV :D )

  784. Rahul said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:21

    I want to believe that, but I hardly see that happening. Mireo might come at a cost….

  785. Rahim said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:23

    You are right.

    My main interest was to know what exactly is “out” and how far is it from the factory. LOL.

  786. Srini said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:25

    Me too… :-(
    But…OK… We are getting closer than
    Really excited. I have been telling my family about for a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time. Hope they understand why I was excited about this once they see it.

    Maybe cause i’m not fanatic… Maybe i like to know more – what other people think. Maybe cause i don’t like self-adorative societies.
    Cause i like “staying sober”.

  789. Mohanan CG Nair said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:31

    FCC info:

    “https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/coresWeb/simpleSearch.do”

    there you can search by business name ” *Notion ink* ” ( dont forget to use the wild card)
    or by FNR = 0020356499

  790. Rahul said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:31

    I’d rather send to India and get it repaired by them than wait for them to strike deals with authorised service partners etc, or till they set up a service center.

    And besides, according to the warranty document, it looks like they are going to bear the shippping costs for a DoA ADAM, and I am inclined to believe that they would do the same for any ADAM that qualifies for service under warranty. (Although they do not say this in print)

    Anyways, it is not really a concern for me (as long as we dont have to ship to china) as I already stay in bangalore, india

  791. /V said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:32

    Dear Rohan

    you clearly are a much better designer and CEO
    than you are a photographer
    :-D

    Congrats on the shipments! Hope the reviews give justice to the Adam (and that I’ll be able to order it soon enough!)

  792. Stefan said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:34

    I think, not yet. In one of the videos was shown a good looking Navigation-software…

  793. Ganesh said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:35

    That does not tell anything about Adam authorization FCC. It only tells you that Notion Ink is registered Grantee with FCC.

    What people are more interested to know is the FCC authorization status.

  794. Rahul said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:35

    Honestly, does anyone know what we are looking for at the FCC site (and where)? I am NOT talking about the pages where one gets the applicant information, like this one:
    “https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/coresWeb/searchDetail.do?frn=0020356499″
    or this one:
    “https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/coresWeb/simpleSearch.do;jsessionid=N2GTz89RqJ13SRZQ1ykmz2jhK8YRvDnnSg8q1cpnp7Pj9p214fK5!616666834!-1277790077?btnSearch=true”

    These are hardly of use to us.

  795. Stefan said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:36

    The reason for the bad pictures is that they are not taken with ADAM ;-)

  796. Rahul said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:37

    Exactly- Thanks for putting it better than I did on my comment below..

    By the way, do you have some idea what and where we are hoping to find?

    Does FCC actually say “Notion Ink… has been authorised for … in the US/… ” or something on those lines?

  797. Ganesh said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:38

    This is what we should look at.

    Grantee code: Y2G

    “https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/GenericSearch.cfm”

    For now no results yet but when FCC updates the website, this is where ADAM approval will show up.

  798. Stefan said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:39

    but- now we all have Rohan’s phone-number ;-)

  799. Ganesh said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:40

  801. Rahul said, on January 19, 2011 at 16:42

    And Rohan is not the photographer-
    He is actually quite the photographer.

    I remember from comments on previous posts that Rohan uses a Nokia- this image was apparently taken using a Blackberry (info from exif).

  815. Drnishiz said, on January 19, 2011 at 18:01

    Can you link me to some of his photography,I had no idea he was photographer.I just assumed all the pictures displayed on this blog and elsewhere were taken by his 3 year old nephew.

  816. AJFoyt1966 said, on January 19, 2011 at 18:02

    Is the FCC-text on the backside is permanently stamped into the device or is it a sticker we can easily peel it of if we don’t like it (it pulls down the elegant impression)?

  823. AJFoyt1966 said, on January 19, 2011 at 18:17

    Meno,

    My bet is they WILL change it on the future versions. But I will consider this a “Badge of Courage” for my Adam. It will be like a proud tattoo. It will remind me of how Rohan and his team did something pretty amazing and cool, including navigating the Byzantine maze of a US Governmental agency, the FCC.

    And when future versions have the smaller text, I will proudly remove whatever case Adam is wearing and show them the BIG TEXT. And they will know I was part of pre-order 1!!! And MY leap of faith helped make all the other Adams after it possible.

    (That or I will Skinit if it is REALLY ugly). ; >)

  824. Tom P. said, on January 19, 2011 at 18:18

    I think they updated the status for the January 9th shipment folks, while us Jan 15-22 will have to wait and see if we get ours as well.

  825. ordzo said, on January 19, 2011 at 18:19

    doh… i just realised that we (at least i) havent seen/heard about adams power unit – how big or small it is , how transport/travel friendli it is and what are charging times, and can we use car adapters ?

  826. bedta said, on January 19, 2011 at 18:22

    i hope pre order 2 starts soon I extra get a visa card for that :D

  827. Tim said, on January 19, 2011 at 18:23

    That would be very cool, then all of us who got in on the first order would have a model design that wont be seen again. I can sense collectors slobbering all over themselves in the future if Adam is as successful as I believe he will be.

  832. Tim said, on January 19, 2011 at 18:37

    When I checked on this it appeared there would not be a charge as it is under the minimum amount. Can’t be positive but I also tried to check it through the book that defines import duties by product type and it appears per that, that there is no duty on this type of product, but again reading government documents is not my strong suit.

    Earlier posts had some pretty sweet photographs. And from the SLR he uses, (that was shot from the ADAM’s camera) that we see in one of the posts from Vegas, I can tell he is a good photographer.

    Shravan ,by regular updates of the stages that ADAM is going through you created belief and hope in us that a good product is not a surprise or miracle, but a conscious ,creative addition of components.

    Thank you Sisirnath!
    What you wrote resonates very strongly with me.

    I enjoyed this blog so much a couple of months ago, but since then much has changed. Every post that isn’t or doesn’t contain psalms full of praise for Rohan the Saviour or Adam the uebergadget and isn’t completely void of criticism either gets bashed or answered with demonstrative disregard or unbearable idiocy.

    I also miss the absence of some dear posters on this blog who might either have been driven away by the hordes of fanboys or silently protest with their absence the unfairness dealt out against them in the preorder 1 round.

    Please, everybody, don’t get me wrong. I think Rohan and team well deserve a never-ending applause, so by all means, keep it going. All I’m asking for, is that everyone please try to imagine that this blog is a social place and therefore meant as a habitat for *every* creature, not just the the ones that cheer for your team.

    Just as the moderate members try to bear with the unabating exultations of this blog’s cheerleaders with angelic patience, the latter might return the kindness by cultivating the awareness that their ongoing hubbub might be weighing others down.

  851. Pierre mathieu said, on January 19, 2011 at 19:47

  853. NoelDickover said, on January 19, 2011 at 20:05

    Looks like us Jan 15-22 folks will need to wait a day or two for ours to ship. That’s still fine with me, as we are inside the promised shipping date window.

  857. Rama Maganti said, on January 19, 2011 at 20:13

    @Rohan
    Any reason why the Grantee code and the Product number you posted a few days back doesn’t yield any results on the FCC website. I expected atleast the old submissions would have showed up.

  861. twospirits said, on January 19, 2011 at 20:17

    I do believe its been mentioned before, but the word prepone has existed in the New Oxford Dictionary of English since 1998.

    “I just want to caution people that be fan’s (i am one of them) but don’t loose the critic in you.”

    This is so true. We can be fans and adore the Adam and the vision of NI, but we can’t be also blind to the fact that things need to be addressed and pointed out that not only make us aware of such issues but also makes the company better by fixing such issues.

    Case in point, this latest thread. as clever and sinister as the title is, it just may turn out to be more accurate than one would like. Not the fault of Rohan or the company per say but due to the lack of the FCC posting the documents on their website. yes, it’s true that Rohan mentioned that the FCC has certified it, but unless the FCC puts it up on their website, no one is going to believe it has passed yet. Now whether getting a verbal “Yes it is certified” instead of posting it on their website is sufficient enough to start shipping the devices is something I can’t answer. I hope its good enough. If not, then the title is more appropriate.

    Dr 2pio:
    > I have developed a distaste for sloppiness.

    How wonderfully precious! How did you accomplish this? Was is the result of long and constant toil? Or were you struck by a sudden revelation, perhaps after stepping in something that you should have cleaned up but didn’t? In any event, you are surely aware that not everyone has gone through the same process you did, and therefore might not share your feelings here. It therefore makes sense for you to proclaim your own exquisite taste, for it gives us a goal to which we can aspire.

    What makes less sense is to criticize Rohan for not following your taste before you have told him what it is. Gigantor remarked that you seem to be a nit picker. It’s true that even your avatar is negative.

  863. GIJoe said, on January 19, 2011 at 20:23

    Don’t you think our(15-22nd) batch starts shipping tomorrow.
    And reaching India early…

    I remember Rohan saying…
    first India and then in the US.
    Now I see that it is because of the shipping distance and not FCC/CE approvals.

  867. Pratik said, on January 19, 2011 at 20:26

    Ah – that gives me an idea – I’m going to put punk-band stickers on the back of my Adam. That way, the hideously obtrusive print on the back will blend in.

  870. Ronak Rathod said, on January 19, 2011 at 20:34

    @Rohan

    It looks like a given that ipad 2 will have a retina display. Man the resolution on that thing is unheard of, almost double of 1024 x 768.

    In my opinion, adam 2 should support an lcd with higher resolution than adam 1, to stay relevant w.r.t ipad 2. The iphone 4 retina display speaks volumes, and people do get swayed by hardware specs (that’s why many people love adam, and eden has been a cherry on the top).

    Rohan, my question to You (or anyone else who cares to answer) –
    1. Can adam 2 also have the Retina Display? Or is it exclusive to Apple? I know that LG makes it for them.
    2. Can adam 2 non-pixel qi version have Super AMOLED? That would stack up better display wise.
    3. Any information on pixel qi coming up with a higher resolution of their display?

  871. John said, on January 19, 2011 at 20:41

    Two posts ago, Rohan said people had already started receiving their adams. As far as we know, nobody in the world actually got one. Now he says shipping will start soon. What makes you think he’s telling the truth this time?

  872. red said, on January 19, 2011 at 20:50

    You and people like you!

  873. NoelDickover said, on January 19, 2011 at 20:52

    John, you might have a case to make if Rohan were already taking the next chunk of orders and money, but as it stands, he’s not. This means it would be completely silly for him to update his database, jimmy up a bunch of pictures of Notion Ink Adams, and go through this whole thing if he wasn’t actually shipping something. In short, even if Rohan was a pathological liar he would get absolutely nothing from lying right now.

    Said another way, what makes you think he’s lying this time? What would he get out of doing so?

  887. Buju said, on January 19, 2011 at 21:10

    Wish they had gone with Sammy or iPad type screen panels for the LCD version only. I wouldn’t mind paying a little more for it. I have a Samsung Windows phone with a SuperAMELOD screen and it’s just gorgeous. When all the reviews come out I think many reviewers will have something negative to say about the screen.

    “The display quality is not bad- Its not the best either.” – Agree

  892. Rahul said, on January 19, 2011 at 21:37

    THey would have to licence the technology or buy the screens from samsung, either of which would be reeeeally expensive for Notion Ink and they would be left at the mercy of the big players- which is never a good thing.

    I own a Macbook Pro, and the screen is unbelievably awesome :) . But am I devastated that Notion Ink uses Old LCD technology? ummm… No Not really. I’d rather the price remain low for the early models- Once they have a sound footing in the market, we can all expect a better screen, I am sure :)

  893. Rahul said, on January 19, 2011 at 21:41

    Lol… just saying… I havent yet been able to order the ADAM during the first pre order. Fingers crossed for this time.

    FYI, (assuming i get both the same day) i will be posting the dual unboxing of both versions followed by a full screen demo of the two. Hopefully this will help those of you who have questions about the differences. go to “www.notioninknews.com” and click the big forum button on the left side….

    Yes,

    Agree with all 15th – 22nd guys, we’ll have to wait, but expect not too long as Rohan has said that February dates are being brought forward to the end of January.

    Fingers crossed!

    And if that friend of Frans De Vries really has got it then why no pics, seems a little to fast a delivery to me. Taking that with a pinch of salt (an English saying, sorry if you don’t know it :-)

  905. Rama Maganti said, on January 19, 2011 at 22:04

    @Ronak,
    There is a concern about the utility of retina display on iPad. Retina display works well on smaller devices like an iPhone, but on larger devices like iPad it wouldn’t be useful due to lack of digital content (especially videos) to match the resolution. Even 720p youtube videos would occupy just a fraction of the screen to display it in the native resolution, defeating the purpose of retina display. One can at most view their digitial photos and some web content on iPad at those resolutions. One needs to zoom continuously when visiting webpages as most of them are designed for lower resolution screens. Furthermore, there is cost attached to Retina display. If one were to scale up an iPhone by approximately 4 times (leaving the bezels out) for an effective display sceen size, you can work out for yourself how much it would cost. It might however happen in the future (with economies of scale), though that is going to be quite distant. This article may provide you with more information.
    “http://www.cultofmac.com/report-ipad-2-will-still-have-1024-x-768-display/77669″

  906. Rahul said, on January 19, 2011 at 22:05

    1. Retina Display is apple’s proprietary technology- (licencing IPS) and so, exclusive to Apple. I doubt very much- scratch that I am pretty sure that Retina Display will not come on the ADAM. And we have not seen such resolutions on other display technologies (in that size). So, if Apple really does make a retina display for the iPad, then it will be a huge + for apple. Competing technologies will take some time to catch up.

    2. Super AMOLED is again, a samsung proprietary technology. Other OEMs that use AMOLED/Super… either licence or buy the tech/screens from Samsung. It is possible that Notion Ink may buy the screens from Samsung, but that would make ADAM (future versions) a tad more expensive that I would like ;)

    3. I would like to know that too… Hi-res PQi displays would be nice.

    Hope this (almost) answers your questions :)

    all that may have been silly talkinga bout cell phones .. but when it comes to tablets? well screen resolution is pretty descent now to really start doing high quiality documents for school for instance!.

  921. Ronak Rathod said, on January 19, 2011 at 22:55

    It does @Rahul @Rama!
    I believe it would be easier to get SUPER AMOLED than Retina in that case.
    Rama, it would be the reverse, Low Res web pages or content would not require scrolling on a higher resolution screen.

    I understand that it is not the ultimate requirement to be successful, but we all know how the visible hardware specs play a big part in people deciding for what to go with. Whether they will ever use that feature or not doesn’t even matter so many times.

    Hopefully adam will not have this problem, as it has other hardware features that trump everyone.

    Appears the 9th ones are “out for shipping” Rohan talked about pre-pone for the feb orders what about us in the 15-22th batch

    Hate to be negative, but these half updates with only partial information are painful. All we need is one quick comment from NI.

    There are so many of us yet again, hitting refresh hopelessly over and over agin for no reason.

    NI please take the 30 seconds required to let the Jan 15 – 22nd batch know what’s going on.

    Retina Display is not a technology. It’s a marketing moniker. A buzzword. It means shit.

    Agreed, iPhone has a pretty high resolution display (provided by LG, I believe). Apple is able to do this (and stop anyone else from using the same displays) with its huge pockets. These pockets were stuffed by selling overpriced crap to brainwashed iPeople who’d buy used Toilet Paper if it had a shiny Apple logo. Magical, isn’t it?
    But Sharp is catching up with its Sharp IS03 ASV used in the Meizu M9 which sports the same resolution (960×640).

    Even John Gruber (Daring Fireball), the self-confessed chest-thumping Apple fanboy who regularly competes with MG Siegler (TechCrunch) on fanboyism douchery with long arduous posts on how Apple and Apple products are the best thing ever, wrote in a blog post about how un-economical a 2048 × 1536 iPad resolution would be.

    So hold your horses. The iPad 2 won’t be as awesome as people are making it out to be.

    Those photos might have been taken with a phone with generic camera in bad light conditions and without flash. Such photos tend to be grainy (ISO), at loss on focus and picture quality. Besides the photos could be taken by anyone, not just Rohan (maybe a worker/supervisor at the factory).
    For me they are wonderful as they are – a glimpse into creation of lots and lots of Adams that will one day (hopefully soon) be in our hands :D

    There is not a chance that the next order batch has more memory or is different in any way

    They haven’t even worked out production hickups.

    To start with, he talked earlier when people were accusing him of using the funds from the first pre-order to pay for production of the first batches, he said he had to pay for March production in December, they have already made committments and contracts for supplies and production it isn’t going to change in a matter of a few weeks.

    And the first bunch of people that pre-ordered would be up in arms, I ordered two myself, a Pixel Qi and and and LCD both with 3G.

  954. David said, on January 19, 2011 at 23:49

    one more thought on new models, they won’t come out until Notion Ink moves into the retail supplyside, right now, they are trying to sell the tablets as they are produced, they are being shipped to customers almost dirrectly from the end of the production line, (actually probably goes to a supply logistics company first)

    When you are producing so many different varieties, you need a place to ship them to, and that is were the retail distribution comes in, because you can ship to Best Buy for example, and they will hold the inventory on their shelfs and in their stock rooms.

    @ Suresh, I know and I agree, they have 3 days and I hope they are on time.

    And you are right, it is just a tablet (although the best one) that I am really looking forward to getting.

    It’s just that we have created a community here where we fell this need to always come back to this site looking for information. I know there have been several occassions between Dec 10 (pre order) and now where I along with many others have sat at the computer and repeatly hit F5. Do we really NEED to do this, off course not, but we do never the less.

    My only point is that there could be so much time saved by hundreds if not thousands of loyal fans with a quick comment from NI.

    All we need is something to the affect of “For those in the Jan 15 -22nd batches, we are on target to ship by _____, your pre order status should be updated by ______. ”

    If we had something like that I wouldn’t need to come back here on every coffee break checking the blog and the pre order page 10 times a day.

    I guess I am from the school of there is no such thing as too much communication. It can only both NI and the fans.

    Either way, I am still a big NI and Adam supporter

  960. Rahul said, on January 20, 2011 at 00:02

    Agreed, since Apple yet does not licence/sell its displays/display tech. And samsung does. So, yeah. If we are seeing better LCD, it might be from samsung :)

    Frankly, I am not too crazy about the 4x resolution. True, extra screen real estate and all that, but it also means the need for a power hungry GPU driving the ginormous resolution **all the time** and so one might expect battery life to take a hit.

    I would trust Apple to do this as they design their product around their own custom silicon. So, they might be able to do some pretty sweet innovations- just like they are able to do on the macs- the same old “they manufacture hardware and software to match” argument.

    I would however like to see better screens in the future iterations of the ADAM. And AMOLED would be a safe bet. But, I am not too sure Samsung or anybody else makes 10″ AMOLED

    he says “A search of the FCC’s Web site reveals that the Adam has indeed gained clearance. ” But thats simply not true. He simply searched using the Grantee Code and that shows only the initial submitted application date. To see the clearance one has to search by Authorization search and nothing has shown up.

    Regardless, its frustrating how the FCC still hasn’t shown the authorization.

    Does his refer to his own sale in the pre-order or is this the first information that Adam will be available in shops in Germany?

    Even I wrote about iPad 2, and how there’s no way it’ll support the same (or even close) pixel density as iPhone 4. (That was on “tablets.com”, not my own blog). Even their new a5 dual-core processor won’t be able to support the number of pixels that would require. iPad 2 is going to be slightly updated from number one, including FFC and more RAM. And bigger speakers. And that’s about it.

    (p.s., Plus a landscape dock. Wait, a landscape dock? Are you kidding? Why is this a big deal? You’re typing on a keyboard if you’re docking, who cares which orientation?) :)

  985. NoelDickover said, on January 20, 2011 at 01:11

    For third party suppliers to start making cases and the like, they would need to know how many units have been sold. This is a downside to hiding the number of pre-orders sold. Perhaps after 2-3 months, we might see some folks enter the market. The other idea of course is Notion Ink developing official relationships with case/cover makers.

  1016. Doug said, on January 20, 2011 at 02:47

    I don’t think he specifically called the Adam Vaporware. He said all honeycomb tablets are vaporware. It’s a stupid choice of words, because of course honeycomb tablets are vaporware, none of them exist yet.

    I think I’d be more worried as to why there are no adam shipping announcements yet. I look forward to hearing them.

  1017. gecko said, on January 20, 2011 at 02:53

    On another note, has anyone used Slingplayer on an Android tablet? I guess it will depend on there being a version made for 3.0 / bigger screens. I see this a big plus though, being able to carry satellite or digital tv around the house – or outside.

    The really hilarious thing is the number of blogs/writers have spent time talking about the dock connectors. I understand that the actual docks can be cool (some cost more than the iPad), but the the connector is….. Just a connector. But everyone’s like “OMG, iPad 2 could, like, totally have TWO DOCK CONNECTORS!!!!! That is, like, SO AWESOME!!! SO MUCH WIN!! Apple wins ALL the internets!”

    Give me a break people. How ’bout we focus on something that matters.

    Oh. My. God.

    You’re totally right! Clearly Rohan is following through on his evil plot to *not* sell any more Adams. Next, he is going to announce another order availability, but when people try to buy one, the website will REFUSE to take their money!!! Bwahahaha!

    Oh, and those already-built-and-FCC-approved Adams we are seeing? He’s keeping them all to himself so that people have NO choice but to cancel their orders!!! Oh, it’s sooooooo Eeeeeevill….. :twisted:

    why does every picture coming out from NotionInk is of very poor quality? out of focus, low resolution, bad framing,etc..
    you need to hire a better photographer and buy a better camera.

    The only thing that makes me question if he’s telling the truth this time is the large number of times we’ve been misinformed already.

    Pictures taken in the Chinese production facility were obviously done at Rohan’s request. They were likely taken by a factory employee with a cell phone camera. I don’t think Rohan is currently in China. Super quality pictures would have been nice, but certainly not required to show that Adams were real and on the way.

    A couple of nice photo’s were taken in Las Vegas with an Adam. Though Adam’s camera was never intended to be pro=quality.

    If there are any teeth chattering over there in Cupertino it’s because they have run out of places to stuff their cash.

  1065. GuruR said, on January 20, 2011 at 06:04

    @ Wtff12, Sisirnath,

    I agree with what you are saying, but if you take a step back and look at the situation holistically, you will notice that this love-hate is wide spread and not just restricted to this blog alone. In my opinion, the Pre-Order fiasco has divided people.

    Major online Mags like Engadget, slashgear etc arent helping. Its unfortunate to see them being quite sarcastic. I’ve been following them for years and have never seen such reactions from them. Yday, Engadget, compared Adam with JooJoo (The failed Tablet company) again sarcastically. I would have thought they had there time with Rohan/NI team to clear all the doubts. I saw both the interviews and All I heard was that it was a great product with a concern for Eden when Android 3.0 is released, now to go back and be sarcastic does not show a balanced approach to reporting. Under such circumstances, its very hard to show restraint. And I think, Rohan has shown “some” restraint. I read that NI did mail Engd & slashgear of the delay in FCC/CE approval. Which I think was a good gesture.

    I have read some postings here which I agree are Fan-boyiesh, but I guess its just a bit of frustration coming out a. for not getting there hands on Adam b. with all the Adam praising and beating around.

    I am sure people who read your posts will do some introspection…..

    FYI…I’ve emailed the pre-orders team to check when the shipment for Australia is likely to start, will update once I get a reply. Last time i mailed them, I got a reply in a few hours, but considering that shipments are underway I think it might take some time.

  1074. AlbertWertz said, on January 20, 2011 at 06:44

    Another alternative is Citrix Receiver for Android & iPad, if you would like to connect to citrix apps…

  1078. Anand Shah said, on January 20, 2011 at 07:09

    However, the best would be the SPICE open source protocol ported for android… and the ADAM becoming either a client…

    As SPICE uses OpenGL & CAIRO big time… it would be a right fit for the ADAM

  1079. Tess.y said, on January 20, 2011 at 07:12

    I think a business as successful as Apple looks into a much future ahead. Before, iphones enjoyed the dominance among the smartphones. Today, not so much. Up to now, iPad has been the definite winner, but tomorrow and more into the future…who knows.

    What I don’t understand is why Apple (or Jobs, his temporary replacement) needed talk like that? Didn’t Jobs call an 7″ tablet DOA? It seems to me that as a DOA tablet, Samsung Galaxy Tab’s been doing well.

    Difference is, Xoom may be made by a huge, wealthy business but Notion Ink has a dedicated community, and hard working developers and creators. You couldn’t get this kind of in depth experience and “feeling” about the product with Motorola. Everyone here CARES about the ADAM and would do a lot for one!

    But if I recall correctly only 50 persons have been delayed to 15-22 due to shipping date calculated incorrectly.

    So I guess those unlucky 50 (me included >.<) will be the last in the shipping …

  1100. Joshua Price said, on January 20, 2011 at 09:51

    If you want a thoughtful reply, start with yourself. Since Adam was first announced, there has always been somebody calling “scam”. Every time NI moves closer to launch, one mouth shuts as another opens. People claimed he was lying about Eden, then CES, then FCC, and now shipping. Don’t you get tired of being wrong?

    The comment about people recieving Adams has been explained. Rohan (being the CEO of the most famous tech startup currently “starting up”) has partners. These partners are developing apps and accessories to go with Adam. Naturally, they need an Adam to do so. They haven’t posted thousands of pictures all over the internets, because of Non-disclosure agreements that are in effect until the device officially ships.

    And yet…. You just have to add one more “scam”, “vapor”, or “lie” accusation to the pile of crap currently sitting on top of Notion Ink. And you wonder why I didn’t take the time to carefully consider your opinions…

    And if you ARE going to accuse Rohan of yet more skullduggery, at least accuse him of something that makes sense, or would somehow benefit him. Making up crappy pictures of Adam and sending out a “now shipping” notification does him no good at all, no matter how evil he is.

  1101. Joshua Price said, on January 20, 2011 at 09:56

    Wow.

    “http://picasaweb.google.com/realising.dreams/Niagara_Falls#5080423248909500098″

    This just became my new desktop background. Where is that color coming from?

  1102. Joshua Price said, on January 20, 2011 at 09:58

    Agreed. Besides, I think it’s pretty obvious that he isn’t in China. So why do we assume that he took the pics? How would that even be possible? Some line manager just snapped a quick shot because the boss told him to. He probably didn’t even realize what it was for.

  1103. KJ said, on January 20, 2011 at 10:12

    “Apple are running scared first time in years their ass is getting kicked by android”

    really…? with zillion different android tablets competing against one and only iPAD? – come on, this is your wishful thinking coming into play, here. Apple had their best quarter ever, a few days ago. Just look at their market cap… there is no stopping the way their stock is performing.

  1104. Maz said, on January 20, 2011 at 10:21

    Hi Rohan,

    Do you still read these comments? I’ve sent a number of emails to you and no one is replying. Quite disappointed.

    I was a top 10 logo finalist, and i have not received anything about my “heavy discount” or anything like that. I’m surprised after the effort we put in for you, you would ignore me now.

    Any comment?

    Have any of the other logo finalists received anything?

  1106. Hoodoo said, on January 20, 2011 at 10:32

    I’ve noticed also that on my iPod browser (and possibly any phone/tablet using the WordPress Mobile version of the website) there is no such thing as the “Older Comments” link and it is impossible to read earlier comments. If this is the case then look for a “Full Version – Mobile Version” toggle and then try to find it.

    I’ve been wondering if this is the reason for some of the more wild accusations of censorship that keep coming up. If people are only ever reading this blog on an iDevice, they could be forgiven for thinking their comments are disappearing into thin air.

  1107. Bipul Luitel said, on January 20, 2011 at 10:41

    Teamviewer “http://www.teamviewer.com/index.aspx” is a wonderful software and they have android apk available on their website.

    This is not a business, it is a cult. You don’t question the Adam unless you want to anger the adamites!

  1110. John said, on January 20, 2011 at 10:51

    You might be confusing me with someone else. I really want an adam, and I’m pretty sure it’s not a scam. I’m just wondering about the blind faith that I read in many of the posts here. Scattered amongst the true believers and the true disbelievers there are a few comments from others like me who are concerned at the disinformation and lack of information that has been coming from NI during the past month.
    I don’t think it augurs well for their cutomer relations prospects. But I hope it improves because as I said, I would love an adam.
    And it is not my intention to accuse NI of scamming or skullduggery.
    And if not believing in a proposition without any evidence of its truth is wrong then no, I won’t ever be tired of being wrong. (Apologies for the awkward triple-negative.) But please note: “not believing in” a statement is very different from “denying” a statement.

  1111. Surveysan said, on January 20, 2011 at 11:11

    my intention was absolutely of the purest and noble kind.
    lets strive harder to appear more pro.

    while, i appreciate the constant updates made by Rohan and team here in this blog, we dont want a newcomer to look at the first page and go “what? ipad killer?”. thats the intent :)

    ****
    Hi Ganesh,
    Being a neighbour from Flanders, with shippingdate still saying 15-22 jan I was curious to see how long it will take for the Adam to reach our part of the world once it is send to you. Keep me noticed, if you will! Many thanks in advance!

  1117. marcdimmick said, on January 20, 2011 at 11:28

    Just a question, the tablet will have a 3G card so effectivly with a head set or bluetooth ear piece we could us it for phone functionality. Is there phone applications out there that would be used with the tablet that anyone knows of?

  1118. steve said, on January 20, 2011 at 11:30

    Notion Ink is learning about business, they just don’t have the capacity they should for customer service and PR.

    It’s actually no different to the BIG companies, they give you a call centre of drones available 24hours a day but not empowered to actually help you. Try getting steve jobs to reply to your email, even if you sent him a hundred new apple logo’s for his consideration.

    I have to say that notion ink is dropping the ball. they really should put forward a PR person (perhaps even rohan) who should be communicating appropriately with the market and the customers all the time. I can’t see it taking more than an hour to post on the exact status of pre-orders, delivery, pre-order2, which countries have/haven’t been shipped. It just means i visit this blog less, and play on my ipad more. I’m that much more open to try the xoom or any other tablets that offer the promise of improved productivity.

    Rohan should decide if he wants to carry on with his “family” approach, or take the proven “corporate” approach. But he can’t do half/half!

  1119. Prema said, on January 20, 2011 at 11:49

    Rohan had a phone app on his adam in the videos, but didn´t showcase it, yet. ;-)

  1120. Vikas said, on January 20, 2011 at 11:53

  1121. Vikas said, on January 20, 2011 at 11:55

    I too remember seeing it (an icon) in one of the Video’s… but can it be actually used as a Phone with a Bluetooth headset?

    you are right and we have seen the phone app long back, adam has gprs too and thats why i used to say adam should support gsm call. Thats sound a good bonous feature rather than fm. Prema i hope your adam has already shipped mine still showing 15-22.

  1126. FJG said, on January 20, 2011 at 12:59

    I would think Skype and Google Voice. Both work now on Android phones. If not, then I would think with all the different Android tablets coming out in 2011 they would want to pick up that market. The Adam system is going to be an open system.
    Just a thought.

  1127. glenn moseley said, on January 20, 2011 at 13:02

    The question has been raised directly to Notion ink and the response was no. A friend bought the advent vega and the phone icons and functions still appear and run on that.

    Hi Biswajit,

    YES it´s showing the “Out for Shipping…” message (was 9th Jan. batch) since yesterday. :)

    Intended fun ahead:

    I guess there is a guy named JON who left the factory yesterday, pulling a cart with a DHL logo and full of adams behind himself.
    The tracking numbers, that we are going to get, will enable us to comfortably track his current position live on google maps, while he delivers each of the adams from door to door worldwide just by himself. :)

  1131. zex said, on January 20, 2011 at 13:59

    According to Mr. Rohan words – “it’s not only a tablet” :)

    Let’s just wait patiently.

    All best

    I am still looking for details regarding the OS that runs on Adam. I still wonder why the information is not updated on the Notion Ink site.

  1133. Prema said, on January 20, 2011 at 14:07

    Ah…I almost forgot >>> Pre-Order 2 starts once he´s back at the factory in China! :)

  1134. Glenn Moseley said, on January 20, 2011 at 14:10

    I haven’t seen a track pad on the back of something before and I cant imagine that it would be easy to use. I guess it would be like using a laptop track pad but your brain would have to do some serious flipping. There is also the issue of where to position it so that it can be used in both portrait and landscape. Maybe Usability testing threw it out.

    If anything, I would prefer something like the physical or optical tracking which HTC use on their phones. Or a track pad on the front built in to the bezel somewhere. Or maybe even a screen where you could touch to select things…

  1135. shyamgeek said, on January 20, 2011 at 14:26

    Hi All

    I have a plan for all the family members from Bangalore

    I am thinking to form a group of all the Bangloreans who are expecting their ADAMs in the first pre order lot. We can have a small get together to celebrate the occation and have a virtual felicitation for Rohan.

    We could also think of inviting other Bangloreans who were part of the family but who missed out on the pre order.

    Any suggestions on how to go about that. ??

  1136. magic51 said, on January 20, 2011 at 14:34

    I was also pushed into the 15th -22nd group, their mistake, so I, personally, would hope we would not be too far from shipping. We have all been patient and sincerely hope that NI are learning from their previous mistakes and ensuring that a good PR system is in place.

    We want you, Rohan, and your team to do well.. without a spot on PR department you are potentially in danger especially being a startup company. I have witnesssed many new tech manufacturers go under because they relied on the loyal few and ignored the wider market. It is fickle, changes like the wind, and takes no prisoners.

    I would love to see the website updated, including a start on the genesis portal, a list of “how toos” , tutorials , gallery, etc, so that the first users can show the world what the Adam can do for them.

    Two sayings we have here in the UK: The early bird catches the worm
    Strike while the iron is hot.

    Both sum up what NI should seriously consider.

    Loyally,

    Steve

  1137. Vikas said, on January 20, 2011 at 14:39

    Hi Biswajit & Prema…

    Can either of you try making calls once you get your Adam… cause am thinking this would be the coolest home phone if not a business phone!!

    BTW, Biswajit, if am not suffering from short term memory loss :) for am so excited about Adam, I did download the ringtone you had posted (The Adam intro tone from the Video).. and its cool thanks for sharing!!

  1138. Kelvin said, on January 20, 2011 at 14:40

    Would love to see a demo of the office suite NI has created :) also, what happened to those people last week who supposedly already had Adam in their hands? Why no unboxing???

  1139. Vikas said, on January 20, 2011 at 14:43

    Chris,

    I think its Android 2.2 + 2.3 blend… as Rohan had mentioned in the interviews that they have taken the best of both and put it together.. so its not just 2.2 that Adam is running on.

    That’s a good idea. May be we can ask Rohan if we can land up in their office for a photo-op.
    Lets start getting on to a IRC Channel that way we can discuss, only we’ve to decide a time.

  1145. sandeep said, on January 20, 2011 at 15:07

    I didn’t find any points that can be considered to not to say that ADAM is the best(of Motorola XOOM and IPAD)product for the quality and comparative price (i don’t know if somebody may come mean while with more less price).

    What Motorola XOOM has more than ADAM
    gyroscope, barometer, e-compass.
    Don’t know difference b/w digital and e-compass and what these exciting sensors can really be used for.

    >”That’s a good idea. May be we can ask Rohan if we can land up in their office for a photo-op.”

    @Amith – I dont think Rohan will entertain us and that too in his office. That is too much to expect… We can have a photo shoot amongst us and send him a mail with all our best wishes and compliments and of course a BIG thanks.

    IRC is a good option but unfortunately I cant access it in office. Maybe also we can create a facebook or yahoo group.

  1148. Rama Maganti said, on January 20, 2011 at 15:18

    @Steve
    One more to add to the sayings list:
    “May hay while the sun shines”.

    The problem NI is facing at the moment is there are so many contradictions between what Rohan says in his posts and Jon says in his e-mails. They need to work as a team and decide between themselves who says what and whether that makes sense or not. There is no point saying something now and saying something totally opposite a few posts later.

  1149. Dominic said, on January 20, 2011 at 15:30

    And don’t confuse a blog with the the official site. There is no doubt that the NI site can/should provide more info and that info should have high quality pics. But this blog is just a way for Rohan to stay in touch with us, and we are all happy with that. In the blog content goes before beauty.

  1187. fundaazoflife said, on January 20, 2011 at 18:22

    I wonder why they have a barometer… I can’t think of an **often used** application that would need to measure atmospheric pressure. I can’t see wide public usage for the barometer.

    I think digital compass and e-compass are the same, but not too sure about that…

  1188. Paul Schoe said, on January 20, 2011 at 18:26

    @sandeep: these functions will greatly improve the experience that you’ll have with games and with maps (e.g. in which direction are you looking). However, I assumed that Adam has them as well as they are standard on most Android phones.

    >> Don’t know difference b/w digital and e-compass and what these exciting sensors can really be used for.
    Tech channels often use terms for sensors that they completely made up, like 6 axis accelerometer or they transform the information about a device being equipped with a gyroscope and a digital compass into saying that the device had a gyro-compass….

    To my knowledge, e-compass is no valid term and is probably meant to be synonymous with digital compass. In mobile devices, I believe there exist only two types of compasses:
    – solid state compass, which is a chip that has a set magnetic sensors that work without any moving parts.
    – a GPS compass; if a GPS receiver has two or more antennas it can calculate not only its position but also its heading.

    I’m not an expert on minute mobile hardware details but I believe that current devices usually support both methods, so I don’t think that the Motorola Xoom has anything more to offer. There’s also the distinction between sensing magnetic north or real north (earth’s rotation axes) but I think a GPS compass is the only way to sense real north in a mobile device. A gyrocompass can determine real north also but is too big for a mobile device and among other things has a startup time of half an hour. ;)

    I think all successful businesses are nervous all the time (and if they aren’t then they should be), that’s what makes them successful. Remember that the development life cycles of products are several years long. the trends of today have been decided by large corporations several years in advance. A large corporation cannot let up for too long otherwise they will find that they are a generation behind the competition (look at microsoft in the mobile phone at the moment) and may have to wait for the current generation of products to end plus the lead time of their own product development before they can compete again. In my opinion this can be anything from a couple of years to a decade. This is why large businesses should worry ;)

    Next, I utilized a rather sophisticated tool to do a deeper analysis of the photo. This analysis reveals the photos were actually taken in a bunker near Langley, VA USA. I’ll leave the rest of the analysis up to all of you. (queue the creepy music). ; >)

    What about the free Google Voice?

    Not sure what the requirements are if it’s available for the adam.

    Or how about Skype. I used that on my 3rd Gen ipod touch. Was very easy to set-up.

    Still, Google Voice sounds like it’s made for devices like the android adam. And now you can also port your cell phone number to the device. (Google charges $20.00 to port it)

    Inderdaad… het bedrag van de Adam is van m’n Visa gegaan, maar geen verzendkosten bijvoorbeeld. Ik vraag me af hoe dat dan zal gebeuren…

    Indeed, the amount of the device was credited from my Visa, but no supplement for the shipping or taxes. I wonder how that will be payed.

    A barometer works with GPS to determine altitude. It can help the GPS know if you are in a subway or at ground level or up on a bridge or something. GPS can do this alone, but it’s faster with a barometer

    I guess the taxes are charged at the time of delivery. For the PQ+3G VAT itself is around EUR 87. Hopefully there are no duties. As per the importduty calculator website, no duties for this class of device. But you never know!!!

    If in the US and it gets shipped by UPS or FedX you can make arrangements to put a hold on your package and pick it up when your available. I have done this many times in the past.
