Notion Ink

Next Round of Order

Posted in Uncategorized by Rohan Shravan on February 9, 2011

Hello There,

The next round of orders have started and emails are being sent right now. The list is HUGE and unlike last time we are not taking chances by sending all at the same time. In case you think you should have received the link, you can register below:

CLICK HERE

Few important points before you proceed ahead for the payment:

  • Notion Ink follows one price policy for the world and will be directly shipping from China. The end customer would be required to pay any customs duty is applicable in their respective countries.
  • Notion Ink follows flat shipping rates which is $50 for anywhere in the world.
  • Please check the Terms and Conditions and Warranty Policy carefully.
  • The current OS is Android 2.2 with necessary components borrowed from Gingerbread. Notion Ink will NOT be updating to Gingerbread, but will be directly migrating to Honeycomb in future. There will be constant updates on the OS and most of the new updates will be for the new applications from our partners. Eden will have timely updates for more feature additions and 3rd party softwares which will be provided. You can install any application (Android 1.6 and above) on Adam.
  • Adam does not have market access because it is not a phone. Android Market is an app store for phone apps.
  • You MUST call your bank and tell them that you would be doing this transaction, specially in the case where you have not done a high value transaction in the past. If your bank issues a chargeback, Notion Ink will not be able to resolve the issue, as it can only be resolved after your Bank gets your confirmation from you about the transaction. Your bank’s system might still show that the transaction has been processed in such a case, but wouldn’t be actually.
  • The order placements are done on first come first served basis.
  • Currently there is no other source of buying so you should be beware of merchandisers calling themselves as authorized distributors of Notion Ink’s Adam, neither there is any other way to pay for the devices except CCAvenue Payment gateways.

We have tried our best to compile the list of supporters and those who are interested in Adam, but alas we are humans… The link provided above is the best way to get listed even for the future round of orders.

Currently other than Notion Ink’s official website, a lot of detail is available online with hands on reviews and benchmark tests. Special websites to mention are:

We really appreciate the work which these communities have done for Adam and our customers!

With Warm Regards

Rohan Shravan

  13. darkurion said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:04

    Great, even if I’m still waiting my first order.
    It’s pity, I’m sure that if i already got it, I will order a second for my wife or family members.

    I think I will have to wait for Adam 2 ;-)

    All the best for NI team

  14. taleboldi said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:04

    I still keep refreshing my e-mail again and again and again …

  15. Pratik said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:06

    Has anyone been able to put the matte screen protector on this good?

    cdn.slashgear.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/ninkprob.jpg

    I mean who did that? That looks really pro.

  16. Diviash said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:06

    Right guys I need to share this with someone otherwise I am going to go mad…

    My revolving routine for the last few weeks…

    Get Up at 06:50, turnoff bedside mode on the BB, check for an invite from Notion Ink then get ready for work, whilst making sure that the email notification does not go off.

    07:30 leave for work. I must have checked the spam folder at least 3 times.

    08:00 get to work. Turn on laptop and check all folders just in case. Check the Blogs
    Try to get through the workload for the day with half an eye on the emails/blog feeds on one screen. Google Alerts means I am probably spending too much time checking my emails.

    18:00 get home from work say hello to the family and make sure I have not missed any email on the way back.

    19:00 put the kids to sleep… right back to surfing the net for any news

    00:00 need not want to go to sleep.

    02:00 approx wake up and check BB for emails given the time difference (GMT v IST)

    05:00 approx again wake up check the BB.

    Then it all starts again. Please tell me this is not just me.

    So this morning at the 05:00 wake up I see an email make all the effort worthwhile. Hey it’s only a pre pre-order email but its progress. Forget sleep now can’t wait for the pre-order invite. Credit Card is primed and ready to burn a whole in my pocket.

    I am not ashamed to admit I am a 37 year old professional acting like a young child the day before Christmas every day for the last 2 months. God help me when I do actually order and then the waiting game for the delivery will begin.

    I hope you all get your invites soon.

  17. abhishekr said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:07

    Guys who have ordered in India did you pay any customs duty apart from the shipping charges of 50 $ ? If yes how much and to which Logistics company.

    -Abhishek

  18. Carlo said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:07

    Guys, in case the link thingies does not work, I have been informed that I will receive an invitation email which I am not going to use as I have already ordered my adam. Let me know if you would like me to forward it to you as soon as I receive it.

  19. fjg said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:08

    We’re ready.
    Thanks!

  20. guptamos said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:09

    hi Rohan,

    I hv recvd a mail heading ‘Information about an invite for your Adam!’ which says that I will get an Invite soon but have not received the actual invite as yet…

    Waiting…..

  21. abhishekr said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:11

    The time gap between information about …and the actual invite for myself was 10 mts.
    So stay glued to your seat !!

    -Abhishek

  22. jlsuarez said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:13

    Received info mail 3,5 hours ago, no mail with link yet.

  23. scullingmarley said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:18

    @Carlo I would like to take you up on your offer I really want an adam, I could order on round one cause CC bank. But will call them in advance and it will be fine.

    my email is marley at networkinglabs dot com

    thank you!!

  24. fundaazoflife said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:19

    Ah, moderated for the first time… Probably because I had links…
    Doesn’t matter, hoping this gets through…

    I have been reading a lot of comments about the customs duties in India.

    According to the website of the customs and excise department of India, For the category that ADAM belongs to, there should be no customs-AT ALL. Octroi is different- that might be charged if applicable. But customs should not be charged.

    Please feel free to take a peek at my blog, where I substantiate this claim with documentary evidence from the website. “http://fundaazoflife.wordpress.com”

    Those who are charged already- you might want to clarify again. GATI (or whoever is shipping to you) SHOULD NOT be charging you customs duties.

    I’ll be glad to hear I am right, of course- But I might be totally wrong too :)

  41. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:38

  42. Murali said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:40

    hi,

    Can anybody help – what is the difference between:
    3G (UMTS 850 / 1900 MHz) and
    3G (UMTS 900 / 2100 MHz)

  49. tntpop said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:47

    depends on your country…
    for example, in France 3G is on UMTS 2100MHz and GSM on 900MHz so that would be take the 3G(UMTS 900 / 2100MHz)

    hope it helps

  50. Rama Maganti said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:48

    @Rohan
    Haven’t received a link yet for this round of orders. I did receive a link in the pre-orders 1 but the Pixel Qi’s were SOLD OUT then. Please could you ask your team to send one to me as soon as possible.

    Best Regards,

    Rama Maganti

  51. angrybrain said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:49

    I don’t know too…
    But does anybody know what frequency of UMTS is in Russia?

  52. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:49

    I dont know if this is any help: “http://notionink.com/store/login.php”

  53. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:52

    MASTERCARD AN OPTION NOW???

  54. jogjayr said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:53

    I am mystified as to why you guys don’t use Amazon and Paypal. Or eBay. Or any other storefront. I know they’d take a cut, but it’s still better than doing international wire transfers…only Nigerian email scammers do those

  55. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:54

    “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UMTS_frequency_bands”

    1900 is for US and 2100 is for Europe along with others

  56. nrzsez said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:54

    And I look into my mailbox again n again… Alas! No Mail! I am not registered in any other notion fan sites apart from this. What are my chances? Oh Mail! Where art thou?

  57. tntpop said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:55

    please use PayPal… I’m sure you can get round to that

  58. ahmedelkady11230 said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:58

    thanks for trying but no dice

  59. Mikos said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:58

    Go for it! :-D

  60. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 14:59

    No mail yet, not even for this new posting from Rohan.

  61. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:00

    good luck!

  62. hiddenmaces said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:03

    i reallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreally want to order. I can’t wait. :)

  63. jlsuarez said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:03

    The Information mail states:

    “2. Currently, payments would be possible only through VISA (credit and debit) and AmEx cards only. We are still in the process of acquiring MasterCard as a payment partner, which is stuck at MasterCard’s end. This is why Internet banking is available as a payment option for Indian card holders. We are afraid these are the only payment methods accepted currently.”

    So still no MasterCard as an option.

  64. swampy50 said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:03

    I’m waiting patiently in NZ. I’m sure I will get my Adam one day. :-)

  65. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:05

    Can anybody help – I am in India and not sure which 3G model to select?
    3G (UMTS 850 / 1900 MHz) or
    3G (UMTS 900 / 2100 MHz)

    Do all service providers in India use same frequency ?

    Hey, @guptamos,

    I have discussed this issue “The 3G Hoopla!” in detail on my blog “http://fundaazoflife.wordpress.com/2010/12/29/notion-ink-adam-the-3g-hoopla/”

    Take a look if you feel like reading :)

  71. jlsuarez said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:12

    A mail with the subject: “Information about an invite for your Adam!”

    then you suppose to get another mail with the link, haven’t received that yet.. though others have already (reading below in comments)

  72. friendbis said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:13

    i received a email but my link is not working

  76. fundaazoflife said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:16

    If u intend to use in India- get the UMTS 900/2100 model.

  77. Himanshu jain said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:16

    karen, you for sure will receive a link. Even I haven’t received a link for this pre-order but then there is still more than 8 hours late. Got the visa card?

  78. fundaazoflife said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:17

    And the 3G operators are launching th 3G service on the 2100MHz band in India.

  79. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:17

    seems to be an issue with mastercard being slow on the uptake….

  80. ahmedelkady11230 said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:18

    ok a year

  81. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:19

    for f*cks sake, im not going down this road again like last time….

    still nothing for me ……

  83. chngoh said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:22

    Still waiting for the email. Wonder how long before I can get it?

    For the question on which band for which country, please check on

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_UMTS_networks

    More accurate will be checking with your provider.

    Read your blog. My adam is on 15th feb shipping. Your arguments seems plausible. If there is unity among Indian Customer, we can pave our way :)

  87. fundaazoflife said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:24

  88. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:25

    Namaste, Bert

  114. Carlo said, on February 9, 2011 at 15:59

    Hi Karen, I am quite sure you have a friend / relative with a Visa card? Just ask them to give you the data and you will reimburse them later.

  115. Diviash said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:00

    @Rohan

    This post shows different information to the email.

    Email quotes “sending you an invite to order your Adam starting from 9 February 0900hrs IST to 11 February 0900hrs IST. (IST = GMT + 5.5hrs)….We kindly request you to wait till the end time specified above before mailing in to us about not receiving an invite”

    Is the date and time shown in this post correct or the email?

  118. flyguyismi said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:02

    Anyone have luck using a prepaid visa card? I know I’ll need to account for the price plus shipping, and if I’ve read correctly there is no charge for import/duty to the US. Can someone please confirm?

    I have an Amex and live not far from her: Karen if you are really desperate give me a sign. I can’t bear the idea of leaving you without an adam. The world is sad enough already.

  121. Mehdi said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:07

    I got my Visa but it’s not working…

    Error message says: “We are sorry your transaction could not be authorised due to a delay in establishing a connection to the issuing bank.”

    What is that supposed to mean ?????

  122. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:10

    Been there, done that, Carlo.
    ****, i am good for my money, but no way to get it on NI’s account.

    Taking a step back now, guys.
    Taking a deep breath. Auto focus…
    Thanks for all your heartwarming support :-) :-)

  123. Carlo said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:11

  126. jani said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:13

    NO MASTERCARD.

    Re-post Mike’s suggestion from “http://www.notioninkfan.com/2011/02/so-what-is-coming-next-from-notion-ink.html?showComment=1297044788005#c6399839535112033575”
    Community,

    I am not making up for the problems NI is having getting mastercard implimented BUT if you want an adam if you are in the USA please get a pre-paid Visa. If you are not try to apply for one just for this purchase. I do not know how international people are but if you really want this please be prepared. They are having delays because of changes in the site and Mastercard giving them problems. Be prepared and you will not miss out for the next week or two.

    NI is trying…..we have to work with them a little.

    Just my .02 good luck everyone.

    -Mike

    I am not sure the email I got is from real notion ink. The mysterious is, I never give this email account (my very personal one) to notion. This email of mine is used for my friends and relatives. I use another email for notion ink adam but I don’t get mail through the mail address I submitted to notion ink. This the sender email:”Notion@yahoo.com”
    Is is scam email?

  140. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:29

    Rohan, care to wade in on this? at least post the link, for people with logon details to log onto! or just email the link to people…..

    No link for me – doh! I’m sure I posted at least once. Oh well, the wife’s getting one, perhaps we are destined to only be a one-Adam family!

  148. Mehdi said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:37

    I am not from India unfortunately. I have tried with my VISA car and a friend’s but it’s not working. Apparently some technical problems. I am not giving up don’t worry, I have waited too long for that !! I have contacted NI and CCAvenue, I hope they will reply as fast as possible !!

  149. morningching said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:37

    This is the email message(below):

    Hi!
    Greetings from Notion Ink!
    We have received an overwhelming response about the Adam and understand that there are many of you wanting to purchase one for yourselves.
    We really appreciate all your patience and enthusiasm. It is only fair that you be invited to order your own Adam.
    So, here is us inviting you to be the proud owner of an Adam!
    Please use the link and login details mentioned below.
    Order an Adam! 

    Username/E-mail: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    Password: xxxxxxxxxx

  153. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:40

    i couldnt think of anything more frustrating. Maybe an adam on display at local store with none in stock?

  168. Rahim said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:48

    Yes of course.

    There will be custom duty of approx. 4700 Rs. for PQi + 3G and 3700 Rs. for LCD + 3G models.

    If you happen to live in maharashtra (unfortunately), you will also have to pay around 1600 Rs. as an Octroi.

    Refer to “http://www.notionaddicts.com/forums/showthread.php/1687-India-shipping-update/page13” for more information.

  169. Andromeda said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:48

  170. Himanshu jain said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:48

    @All Dont be impatient enough to take fellow mates invitation on the first day itself and there are more than 36 hours left.
    Keep in mind so can’t change email-id so you have to ping the original guy for each n every information sent by NotionInk before and after shipping and even related to updates. So think about them before ordering from others’ email-id

  171. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:49

    Reading futher down at someone else who tried it, seems you cant change the email address on the order. looks like you cant pass them on so will have to wait for our own personal invitation….

  172. madamimadam81 said, on February 9, 2011 at 16:49

    pass it on to me please..i need it urgently at kirtan dot doshi at yahoo dot com!

  191. podespacial said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:06

    This morning i woke up, turned on my laptop and a shining invitation to buy ADAM was sitting in my inbox. I could not believe it since I only left a random comment months ago. I would be the last persons they should have invited considering the many fans who are actively writing on this blog. Now is not time for me to indulge into expending in gadgets but sure I will have ADAM a bit later (maybe ADAM 2). Thanks ADAM things are going much better lately.
    I am not sure someone else can use my invitation but if you are that eager just let me know your mail and you can give it a try. :)

  192. Johan said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:06

    har har… that sort of answers my question… :)

    I thought to go for the LCD and if convinced by adam, then go for a PQ Adam2

    But since I am looking forward to a reading device…

    But there is still a huge chance that I will not be able to buy because of the “/=($/&@* Visa-stuff!

  196. tlcquest said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:08

    can i have your invite podespacial ?? mail.newzealand at gmail.com thank you~ i can’t be refreshing my inbox all night .. got to work tomorrow

  197. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:10

    No offense, but i dont understand how you got an invite so quick? ive waited so long for this, been supporting NI a long time and im still left waiting. I left comments months and months ago, a long time before the majority of people arrived here. sigh, its dissapointing.

  198. 3dmazter said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:10

    its seems impossible to get someone elso on my invitation.
    Email adres is fixxed in the order.

  199. Mehdi said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:10

    Still not working and no reply from any of them…what does it take to have a nice and smooth order ??
    PO2 was supposed to learn from the mistakes made previously, but still no Mastercard (I know it’s not NI’s fault, but it’s till frustrating for those who have no other payment choice), now I can not get through the process after arprasath kindly sent me a link !! I have never been this close to actually own an ADAM, don’t tell me I’m going to be forgotten again !!

  200. Mehdi said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:12

    Hmm i don’t think so, we can change the email address once we pay on CCAvenue.

  201. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:12

    yeah mastercard have really dragged their heels on this which is unfair really. i do believe paypal would have been a much better way to go even if it meant passing on the costs.

  202. tlcquest said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:12

    I am on the same boat as you jammiedude.. i left comments a year ago… life isn’t fair and its a fact.

  203. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:13

    im sorry what now? so we just log on as that person, go through payment and change the email at payment?

  204. Luis Flores said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:13

    Hi Bikram,

    Thanks for the link . Have gone thru it. Looks good. But what if Gati charge on top of that. Gati have been known to charge more compared to their rivals. Should we speak to some one in the Customs or any other source to get this thing sorted out.

    But there have been few Indian customers who have paid customs duty.

    @Onwers of Adam based in India please go thru the link posted by fundaazoflife and let us know if you can speak to ur delivery company and get more clarity on this.

    Looking forward to some solution to this. Paying so much money on top of product price
    is not a good thing.

    Has one you guys using like someone else’s invitation managed to go through the order ? My transaction can not be finalized because of some technical problems (too long delay to contact my issuing bank), I have been trying to reach NI or CCAvenue with no success so far.

  216. Diviash said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:20

    fair?

  217. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:20

    its a waiting game to see if your on the list

  218. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:22

    Isn’t there a way to change mail address as soon as Adam is in our hands?
    Ppl get new accounts all the time?

    Any one any experience on that?

  219. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:22

    i dont know if madamimadam81 managed to order…..

  220. madamimadam81 said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:23

    not yet..havent got the invite yet from 3dmazter… keeping fingers crossed. :)

  221. Mehdi said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:23

    You have to use the mail address from the invitation to access NI’s website and to order. Once you are directed to CCAvenue (to pay), you can input whichever billing and delivery information you like (well I guess from what I have seen but i am not sure).

  222. scullingmarley said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:24

    Has anyone in the US have ordered successfully? I keep getting a error when paying the error is “We were not able to authenticate the responce from the payment gateway”

  223. Diviash said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:24

    i take it back I just got my invite…

  224. madamimadam81 said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:24

    hey,
    Have replied to you on mail. please do check! :)

  225. morningching said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:27

    It seems fake invitation.Got 2 emails about 2nd preorder from ”Notion@yahoo.com”. User and password is sent. But sender might be scam, not from real NotionInk.

  226. podespacial said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:27

    judging for the large list of invitations I think mass production of ADAMS is about to come. Just give it some time. tlcquest if you give up the invitation let me know.

  227. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:28

    wow someone reading this blog is trying it on! did you give out your email previously or something?

  228. darembo said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:29

    has anyone received a preorder email using a hotmail account?
    That’s the reason i missed out on preorder 1 ,was wondering if those issues had been resolved

  229. Amit Tambe said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:29

    Ok, I finally got my adam!! Had to pay Rs 6,684.75 additionally. That takes the landed cost of my adam to Rs 36,684.75 for the PQi 3G version in Mumbai.

    The additional amount seems entirely for customs duty. It appears that Rs 1,650 of octroi payable in Mumbai is covered by NI.

    I am trying to work on an unboxing and will post when done.

  230. gryphonv said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:29

    Well, I got two(!) emails from notionink, but they are clones with no link :(

  231. podespacial said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:30

    great Diviash.. i could sense the harmony

  232. Rama Maganti said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:30

    Himanshu
    Could you send me your link if you get one? I haven’t got one yet.

    Thanks for the help.

    Regards,

    Rama Maganti

  233. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:31

    guys it doesnt look like you can pass the orders on to anyone, at the end of the day if you dont order theres another space open for someone who gets the link to order so its not entirely wasted you just dont get to choose who it goes to

  234. madamimadam81 said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:33

    :( can’t wait till tomorrow to get the link.Wont have internet access after tomorrow till 12th. :((

  235. ahmedelkady11230 said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:33

    NI is this you

    notion Ink Design Labs “noreply@notionink.com”

    or is this a fraudulent email

  236. angrybrain said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:33

    I got two emails too, and there is not link…

  237. morningching said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:34

    I didn’t give that email address to notion ink. I give one I am regularly using here in this blog. I didn’t get mail through that email address I give to notion ink.

  238. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:37

    sounds like they have got hold of your other email because you maybe gave it out over the net a while ago and then targeted you as soon as the pre orders where announced again. just make sure the email is from the notionink domain.

  239. Francois Brutsch said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:40

    Smooth so far: got the announcement email, then got the link and code (now going to my partner’s office to collect his Visa since my Eurocard won’t work!).

    Bad surprise is that it’s restricted to one Adam when I “need” three… Suppose it’s good news for the others if there is still a shortage of devices, but please ramp-up production :-)

  240. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:40

    Looks like the emails are personalised to the specific email address, so its no use passing on the login details to order because the order will be tied with the original email address which cant be changed. need to wait for your own email!!

    on that topic, NI Please Please Please email me my link!!!

  241. Mehdi said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:43

    Hey there,

    how do you know that for sure ?

  242. Nick Clark said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:44

    Seriously pissed off, my wife and I (in the UK) have now both tried to purchase an Adam using her login and every time we submit the card details the transaction company comes back with “We are sorry your transaction could not be authorised due to a delay in establishing a connection to the issuing bank”.

    Why the hell couldn’t you guys use PayPal for this?!

    We finally get the chance to buy and now we run into problems with the rubbish card company you’ve gone with. Pathetic. I think our patience with NotionInk is finally about to run out.

  243. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:45

    the guy who was going to give me his logon details checked, he said the email was greyed out and couldnt be changed

  244. gamestill said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:45

    m serious :P
    mine is also lcd +wifi+3g. :D
    hoping you are not from del.

  245. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:46

    did you phone the bank to ask to let it go through?

  246. mglaessgen said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:46

    You guys did read the bit above where it said if you havn’t received your email by “February 11th”. Meaning it might not be coming today the are probably sending out a portion per hour. You might be checking for 2 more days :)

  247. 3dmazter said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:49

    I recieved 2 preorder emails on my hotmail account but order now link does not work on both?
    my gmail preorder mail does work

  248. Nick Clark said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:50

    I assume my wife has yeah, as she tends to follow instructions unlike me… but good point. Annoying that we have to do it though.

  249. ahmedelkady11230 said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:50

    i got the same email mine was from “noreply@notionink.com” where was your from

  250. 3dmazter said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:52

    @Amit, there is supposed to be no customs for India- This is the information from the customs and excise department website..
    More detailed instructions on “fundaazoflife.wordpress.com”

  253. ahmedelkady11230 said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:53

    i got mine from Notion Ink Design Labs noreply at notionink dot com (is it real)

  254. angrybrain said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:54

    did anybody order Adam? How can I pay if I want to buy it?

  255. Himanshu jain said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:56

    @Rama I haven’t got the link either. I just got a mail about the future link. I will suggest wait for some time. In anycase if i receive and you don’t feel free to contact, I will have no issues in forwarding it. But it’s more than 36 hours left. Don’t take load now :).

  256. Suresh said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:57

    Good Luck folks for the Preorder 2!

  257. jlsuarez said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:58

    Between 9 feb (9am IST) and 11 feb (9am IST), this is complete torture xD

    Camping my inbox (…and spambox)

  258. Arif said, on February 9, 2011 at 17:58

    i recieved the mail.. filled up the forms.. clicked pay .. and it shows TRANSACTION FAILED!!! :O i am dying here.. 5th attempt the same, 2 seconds after clicking pay, it shows this.. what am I supposed to do?

    i lost out on the first pre order because i saw the mail late.. now it shows payment issues.. :( :( :'(

    “so near… yet so far”…

  259. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:01

    well put it this way, you probably wouldnt have to do it that if it was down a normal consumer channel like Paypal. Rohans argument was that wire transfers are normal, well from our western point of view (dont want to vouch for other areas), its not normal for consumers to wire transfer. its not a channel we would normally see unless we where involved in business affairs where it maybe more acceptable.

  260. Amit Tambe said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:01

    @fundaazoflife – only if life were that simple. The GATI fellow wouldn’t have handed over the package to me if I hadn’t paid the money. I don’t think showing him the customs website would have made any difference!

  261. scullingmarley said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:03

    re posting caus of wp:
    Has anyone in the US have ordered successfully? I keep getting a error when paying the error is “We were not able to authenticate the responce from the payment gateway”

  262. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:05

    Hi guys.
    And after the whole ordering process?
    How about changing the address afterwards, for the updates?

  263. Devadatta said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:06

    USD 425.33 / INR 21416 LCD Wi-fi + 3G (UMTS 900 / 2100 MHz)
    but conversion rate comes out to be Rs 50.26/ US $ 1 almost Rs.5 more
    why so?

    no link yet :(
    very very eager to have one.

  264. madamimadam81 said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:10

    YESSSSS!!!!
    Paid for my adam LCD + wifi + 3G…
    Total : 23766 INR

    Thank you 3dMazter for the mail. Will get the email changed by contacting notionink now.

    For indians :
    Payment in USD is not possible through CCavenues currently..they had this to say :

    AS per RBI rules, Currently indian residents cannot make payments in USD for any transactions.

    that sucks as i had to pay the higher price in INR. Anyway..thanks again to 3dmazter!
    cheers guys!

  265. Rajendra said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:11

    @Rohan, I understand we still have few hours for the email receipt deadline. But don’t miss me again this time (haven’t received any email so far).

  266. Diviash said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:11

    Would love to know how you get on as am in exactly the same boat. Only difference being I phone the bank to ensure it would go through…it did not for the same reason as you…

    Good Luck

  269. marcdimmick said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:15

    Great News, looking forward to more in the community. Don’t believe everything you read. There are a lot of information out there about how good this tablet is. This tablet is different to anything else out there. I own the 3G and Pixel Qi screen. I have had it for just over a week now and still feel it was the best buy, by far.

    Come join this dynamic and energetic community. Even the nay says, even though they are becoming smaller each day. :) about time too.

  270. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:15

    changed my mouse for a new one.
    Left button wore out from clicking and refreshing pages.

  271. Mehdi said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:15

    Hi karen,

    changing the address afterward is possible. The greyed address is only the login to NI’s website, where you choose the model you want to buy. Then you are directed to CCAvenue to pay, where you can input billing and delivery informations.

    However, as Himanshu pointed out, it might be true that NI will use the login mail address (the one you can not change) for updates and things like that. I don’t know if we will be able to change this address.

  272. Doja said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:17

    *Karen*
    Hi cool Northern European. Have you got a link yet?
    Got one to spare!!

  273. madamimadam81 said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:17

    @himanshu jain and @jaisinghdeep

    thanks guys for your positive responses. but as you will see from above, i managed to get a link from 3dmazter and order my adam. I shall not require the link from you guys now. If i get one in the future..i will surely forward it to anyone who needs it. As for the email address, i will simply forward all the mails i then receive to the adam recepient. so if any of you guys / gals want it please email me at kirtan dot doshi at yahoo dot com. most probably i will be in transit but i should be able to forward you the mail atleast. (bangkok airport does have free wifi). I wont be able to check the blog on it though…so please do mail me rather than post here.

    regards
    Kirtan Doshi

  274. Mehdi said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:18

    Hey Nick,

    can you please let me know if you manage to solve the problem and go through the order as I have the same message bouncing back every time I try to order one ADAM.

    Thanks a lot !

  275. Luis Flores said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:18

    I have phoned my bank, and I’m waiting for my email! PRETTY PLEASE!

  276. Arif said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:20

    same here Mehdi.. same situation.. i made 5 attempts out of desperation already. on the payment side that is.. but transaction failed.. sheesh…
    sent emails to ccavenue and NI.. keeping on refreshing my inbox to see some reply..

  277. Glenn M said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:21

    Did you call your credit card company before trying to order and clear it with them? If not – thats probably your problem. A transaction like this probably has a 90% chance of being rejected by your credit company as potential fraud.

  278. davidbeaty said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:25

    Yes I called my bank before trying the transaction. Still getting an error when trying to buy:-(

  279. Glenn M said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:25

    Any idea if there is a limit on adams like last time? Just curious if they will run out or if they will take as many orders as they can.

    I got my preorder email link but will not be using it. I’ll be waiting to hear more feedback / reviews.

    Best wishes to everyone on their new adams! I hope it is a dream come true for you all!

  280. Glenn M said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:27

    Rohan – any chance of an adam 1.5 – with update higher quality screens? I know you said adam 2 is 9-18ish months away – but with little effort the adam 1 could be updated with higher quality LCD and Pixel Qi screens for those of us who have concerns.

  281. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:29

    @NI Support: willing to enlighten this issue, please?

  282. edju13 said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:30

    Hmmm, got the email.
    But here I am with my Mastercard………………………………
    Too bad.
    Now I have to wait till the Adam is in the shop or another tablet.

  283. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:31

    Ok same issue!! did you email ccavenue?

  284. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:33

    Ok NI do you have any comment on:
    Transaction could not be authorised.
    Your order number is (taken out).
    Reason :We are sorry your transaction could not be authorised due to a delay in establishing a connection to the issuing bank.

  285. Nick Clark said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:33

    Well there we have it, CCAvenue are rubbish. I’ve contacted my card company (MBNA) and they say they haven’t even seen an attempt to use the card from CCAvenue.
    So my conclusion is CCAvenue have problems as I expected – probably they can’t handle the volume or something like that. Let’s hope they can sort it out before anyone else that’s experiencing this problem gets as pissed off about this as me!

    Drives me mad, we want to give NotionInk our money but they put a system in place that makes it next to impossible. Not a good way to do business…

  286. Nick Clark said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:34

    Good idea jd, I’ll email them now. Thanks!

  287. davidbeaty said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:37

    Same issue for me. Tried a US bank and a Qatar bank. Very frustrating!!!! If anyone comes to any conclusion please let me know. It should not be this hard to buy! I am in love with the product but this purchasing thing is a nightmare!! Rohan?? I hope you are not on a plane :-)

  288. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:38

    In case you think you should have received the link and haven’t post 11 Feb 11:55PM IST, the link in Rohan’s post will become active for you where you can register yourself…

  289. davidbeaty said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:39

    Ditto and I called my bank to “pre-authorize”.

  290. gryphonv said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:40

    Same for me :(

    Hello. I have a problem when i try to pay. It says “We are sorry your transaction could not be authorised due to a delay in establishing a connection to the issuing bank”.

    What can i do?

  295. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:46

    just gone back to do it in INR instead of USD

  296. Himanshu jain said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:46

    Can u take help from ur frn who is having visa card/amex? Or pre-paid visa card?

  297. Rajendra said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:47

    Has anyone received the link? Can you order once you receive the link or have to wait for sometime? If I receive the mail at the very end and Adams are sold out what will be my options : 1) Steal from someone who has already received one , 2) Empire state building ;), 3) Go to Bangalore and get it personally from Rohan , 4) Go Greg’s house and grab one ;).

    Can anyone paste the mail here?
    The time has been changed to Feb 11th from Feb 9th.

    Your comment is awaiting moderation.

    A little off-topic, yet interesting perhaps.

    “h t t p://www.engadget.com/2011/02/08/nokia-ceo-stephen-elop-rallies-troops-in-brutally-honest-burnin/”

    So the big players face a need to do internal revisions.

    I’d say NI will be learning so much along the way through Adam to Adam2 that they will be quite fire-resistant in the future. At least I do hope the will :)

    Good luck, guys

  299. Himanshu jain said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:51

    This seems to be a common problem now for many users.

  302. Himanshu jain said, on February 9, 2011 at 18:53

    I don’t think they have paucity of adam this time.
    For your convenience posting it again

    Hello and Greetings from Notion Ink!

    We know that many of your have been eagerly awaiting to purchase your Adam!

    We are delighted to inform you that we will be sending you an invite to order your Adam starting from 9 February 0900hrs IST to 11 February 0900hrs IST. (IST = GMT + 5.5hrs)

    You will be sent an e-mail with a link in it, using which your order can be placed.

    Here are some things we would like you to know before you attempt to place your order.

    1. We strongly suggest that you call your bank/credit card company before clicking on the link, to preauthorise this transaction, in order to avoid any issues while placing your order. This is necessary as your bank/credit card company may flag this transaction or block it completely. If you have not used your card to make high value international transactions before or if you are placing this order using the Internet from a location.

    2. Currently, payments would be possible only through VISA (credit and debit) and AmEx cards only. We are still in the process of acquiring MasterCard as a payment partner, which is stuck at MasterCard’s end. This is why Internet banking is available as a payment option for Indian card holders. We are afraid these are the only payment methods accepted currently.

    The following variants of the Adam would be available for purchase now.

    USD 375.33 / INR 18916 LCD Wi-fi only
    USD 425.33 / INR 21416 LCD Wi-fi + 3G (UMTS 850 / 1900 MHz)
    USD 425.33 / INR 21416 LCD Wi-fi + 3G (UMTS 900 / 2100 MHz)

    USD 499.45 / INR 25122 PixelQi Wi-fi only
    USD 549.99 / INR 27649 PixelQi Wi-fi + 3G (UMTS 850 / 1900 MHz)
    USD 549.99 / INR 27649 PixelQi Wi-fi + 3G (UMTS 900 / 2100 MHz)

    We charge a flat shipping fee of USD 50 / INR 2350 for your order. We use DHL,TNT and EMS as shipping companies.

    Currently, orders would be shipped out in two different batches – 25 February to 28 February 2011 and 5 March to 10 March 2011.
    You would be split into the appropriate batch on a first come first serve basis.

    Any customs charges, duties or local taxes applicable to your order will have to be borne by you.

    In case you do not receive your invite before the time specified above, we suggest that you first check your spam folder. If you still cannot find our invite, please write into us at “support@notionink.com” with ‘Invite Request’ as the subject line.

    We kindly request you to wait till the end time specified above before mailing in to us about not receiving an invite.

    Warm Regards
    Notion Ink

  307. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:01

    Hi Doja, thanks!
    Accepted from some one else, but waiting for my own invite still.
    Would ease a lot if i could use mine, not stressing some one else with all follow up mails.

  308. davidbeaty said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:02

    I just keep trying but still am getting errors. SO sad.

    my mouse works fine now!

    Hi andromeda, again same master card issue. I wish NI made that public little early about it then few ppl would have manage some alternative. Even same thing i have faced but lucky enough that my net banking worked. I am realy sorry for those who will be restricted with it.
    NI YOU LOSING VALLUED CUSTOMER, HOPE YOU ARE LISTENING.

  311. Murali said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:05

    yipee!!! Completed the transaction in less than a minute of receiving the adam link.

    Is this a RECORD of sorts? :-D

    Delivery says between 25th Feb and 10th March.

  312. Glenn said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:06

    ditto , 6 attempts so far ! 3 different Cards ARRGGHHHH!!!

  313. dwarf4242 said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:06

    I have received my invitation to order, and I’ve even gotten into the ordering website, but when supplying my shipping and billing information the website complains that I haven’t entered a valid phone number.
    I googled my country code, and for the US is says I should use +1, but with either +1 or simply 1 as the country code it still will not let me proceed, saying I don’t have a valid phone number.
    Any ideas what I’m doing wrong?
    Thanks in advance

  314. darembo said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:06

    Tnx for the reply , i havent received any mail yet , but it isnt the 11th yet, guess i’ll keep on checking the inbox :)

    Congrats to everyone that got in btw

  315. Greg said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:07

    Congratulations Amit! I love watching all the unboxing videos. Each time is exciting all over again.

    Be sure to remove the protective clear plastic film over the camera lens (there may even be two layers). And there is a thin clear plastic film over the white stickers on the sides that can be removed. It will eventually begin to lift off on its own if you do not remove it.

  316. Glenn said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:07

    Can we leave the order and pay later ????

  317. Mehdi said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:07

    Same here, same error message !!

  318. Dennis said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:08

    I’m in the same boat. Hopefully, mine is ordered. I have sent emails to both CCAvenue and NI.

  319. Mehdi said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:09

    Lucky you :-) ! Which payment option did you choose ??

  320. hutch1126 said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:09

    @Karen
    Just letting you know that i have received an invite so if you want it’s all yours. I know you have been waiting a long time.

  321. mrmarkphillips said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:10

    I cannot believe there is still no Mastercard option or that Rohan is not telling us very much about it or discussing other options, like PayPal. This is a huge demographic of loyal fans that are being left behind. So much for waiting for PO2! I could bite the arse of a pirhana today, I’m that pissed!

  322. Murali said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:10

    Opps, it was under 5 minutes (well, still in less than a minute I noticed the mail)…
    Well, whatever… I am out of bounds now…

  323. Murali said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:11

  325. mikkelpetersen said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:14

    I just got the link :D but I can’t make my mind up regarding Pixel Qi / LCD??
    Always wanted a Pixel qi screen, but after seeing the reviews I am very confused.. I haven’t had a tablet before, so I don’t know how much I am going to use it outside.
    Have anyone compared the two models side by side?

  326. podespacial said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:14

    what are the odds.. today must be my lucky day…. a second invitation from ADAM… is anyone ready to buy (no mastercard) and want my invitation?

  327. Dennis said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:15

    Add me to the list.

  328. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:15

    Thanks Hutch, accepted an invite from someone else to keep in my back pocket.
    I’ll wait a bit more for my own invite to come through. Would make is easier, not stressing anyone with all the follow up mails and updates later on.

    @ all: *thank you all for your support*

  329. adamjuly2010 said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:16

    I still have some doubts. But nevertheless – I ordered one!

    Shipping date: 25th February to 10th March 2011

    Good luck, NI

  330. boeltwit said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:17

    Amit, congratulations..!!!

    Have fun and read all advises on Greg’s site and Notion Ink Hacks en don’t forget Albert’s video’s

  331. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:17

    LOL, that last part is an expression i never heard before…

  332. Murali said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:19

    Try adding 0001 and continue. May + is not being accepted. Or just ignore the country code and just enter the number as if its inside US. It can always be corrected later by sending a mail to support. (its all a guess work)

  333. Sid said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:20

    just do it ;)

  334. meyergre said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:20

    Just received my e-mail :D I was so excited…

    …but unfortunately it seems to be some bugs in the payment system… and my MasterCard is not supported… :'(

    is there an alternative way to pay ? Paypal? direct Bank Transfer ? pleaaaaaase… :'(

  335. Luis Flores said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:20

    GOT MINE GOT MINE GOT MINE! PAYING.. waiting for confirmation, processing!! AH! FINALLY!

  336. adamjuly2010 said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:20

    Does anybody knows how long it takes that I can check the preorder status?
    If I try it now (ordered 15min ago) I get the following error message:

    Please enter correct Order Number and Email

  337. Amit Tambe said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:21

    Thanks Greg (and others). I had seen your video and removed both layers of plastic from the camera lens (getting the stuff late does have some advantages!). The stuff’s already started peeling off the sides.

    I updated the adam by flashing it (it’s required only for this update) but as Rohan says Android Market doesn’t load on it. Has anyone been able to load market on this version of Eden?

  338. Sid said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:21

    rohan don’t forget “blog.mynotionink.com”
    I know, I know that there’s not much on it, but then I’m reserving it for all the cool stuff that I’ve got to showcase just as soon as I get the Adam, waiting for Feb 14th!!!

  339. Luis Flores said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:21

    STILL PROCESSING AND CONNECTING… this can’t be normal, please go through!

  340. Himanshu jain said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:22

    I really liked the unboxing Amit. Hope u will come with user reviews too :). Specially the part where your frn clapped, the excitement was oozing :)

  341. Luis Flores said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:22

    INTERNET DON’T FAIL ME NOW! (sorry for posting on my own post haha!)

  342. Himanshu jain said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:23

    Yes you can. i did the same

  343. Amit Tambe said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:23

    Thanks Himanshu and boeltwit. I had ordered this at my office and I had people in my cabin – everyone excited. I edited the part where there was applause but the excitement was all in there!

  344. Glenn said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:24

    WOOH YES :D soo happy to give away money :D lol

    finally it worked … if your still trying guys I put my order in , walked away for a cuppa then came back paid and it worked

    now fingers crossed on delivery ;)

    I’m an Adamite

  345. Himanshu jain said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:24

    And Greg, Amit’s unboxing video is the first unboxing video from India. SO needs to be mentioned on your website :)

  346. Sid said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:24

    i wonder if I’m going to get the mail! actually I wonder if rohan even knows I’m here.

  347. Greg said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:25

    Karen, keep an eye on your inbox… ;-)

  348. Doja said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:25

    @ All trying to order and getting refused. I have experienced the same issues on 2 different occasions while ordering.
    I was using firefox and it didn’t go through then and I thought I’d try it again but it still didn’t go through. On switching to chrome on both occasions my transactions have gone through. You might want to try this….. :)
    Just a heads up. Meanwhile trying to decide if I want a PQi or Lcd for my adam.( Ordered both.

  349. morningching said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:26

    @ahmedelkady11230
    “Notion@yahoo.com” is the sender to me.It is absolutely different from the real email address people mention on this blog. So my email is suspicious.

  350. Himanshu jain said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:27

    It will take some Time for NI to update the database. For the meanwhile you can go to the same link provided in the mail and it will take you to fully completed order page with information about payment and shipping date.

  351. rdostaly said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:27

    Got my link thank God!

  352. mglaessgen said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:28

    Ordered mine. Oddly I received two emails, one with a bad code in it.

    It took a couple tries for CCAvenue to process my card though. Kept saying there was a timeout contacting your bank. Only thing I adjusted on the last time was I removed 001 from my phone number.

  353. Diviash said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:28

    Payment system seems to working now. Give it a go!!

    Yes I will be a proud owner of an shiny new toy. I mean Adam.

  354. Rajendra said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:29

    Himanshu, can you send me the link if you are not using it. I think you already ordered one ;).

  355. mglaessgen said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:29

    I got through finally. Close the CCAvenue page and click Pay Now again on the Notion Ink store

  356. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:29

    Hold your horses, Doja…
    Do i understand this right?
    You ordered two versions, since you weren’t able to decide in time which one you want?
    This blog is getting crazier by the hour ;-)

  360. Himanshu jain said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:33

    @Rajendra, I have just mailed it to Karen. Sorry buddy. But i suppose I will get one more mail(Courtesy NotionInkFan). Do let me know if you don’t get one. But I am saying again , you and all will get their mail for sure. This time they are not messing with mails. May be it will take time but you for sure get one before 11th of feb.Mark my words :)

  361. Chebbinator said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:33

    @luis – so… what next.. the suspense is killing me…

  362. Amit Tambe said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:33

    Oh – I thought I’d edited the clapping and stuff!

  363. mglaessgen said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:33

    I am going with the PixelQi. The NotionInkFan review calmed my fears about vibrancy of the picture and I plan to be out on my deck using my adam and I know my LCD laptop isn’t visible at all.

  364. Luis Flores said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:34

    AFTER CALLING THE BANK (AGAIN) IT WENT THROUGH! YES!!!! THANK YOUUUU! Now I hope I can get one for my sister!

  365. boeltwit said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:35

    OK Luis!!

    25 Feb. Adam comes to you…!!

  366. Doja said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:35

    I am so confused and been doing the pros and cons. The LCD won and I just couldn’t bring myself to lose out on Pqi technology.
    What are you getting? :)

  367. Luis Flores said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:36

    THANKS CHEBBINATOR! I may not get it as soon as it arrives my friends house but I know I’ll be getting it! My friend better not steal it! JAJAJA! YAY! Wish I could put that dancing smiley on the comment!

  368. Chebbinator said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:36

    @ahmedelkady11230 – were you able to order finally?

  369. madamimadam81 said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:36

    Karen i have a pre order invite but its not from noreply at notionink..its from notion at yahoo dot com..however it still points in the right direction to the url and the login works…if u want i can forward it to you. all you have to do is sort out how u gonna pay. :)

    Yippy! :-)

    Made up my mind for LCD/3G.

  371. cconesa said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:37

    Finally I have paid my Adam with VISA without troubles.

    Baptism by fire!

  373. Luis Flores said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:38

    Thanks! I’m so so so so so happy! This is amazing! Thanks all of you for the support! It’s crazy to think, I would never be doing this for any other gadget! It’s very gratifying to be able to share the joy with you guys!

  374. Mikos said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:38

    I got an pre-order2 email!

    But I´m still waiting for my first Adam…

  375. Greg said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:38

    I have not seen the LCD myself yet. Pixel Qi is great, especially if you are going to read outdoors a lot. (you can see it in my video review on “notioninkfan.com”) I have my light sensor disabled and the brightness turned up all the way. That is a clear indicator to me that I would probably prefer LCD because of its more vibrant colors. So if you are like me and turn brightness up all the way on your notebooks too, then LCD should be considered. But like I said, I have not seen LCD yet myself. I have been told the colors are more vibrant. But I don’t know if viewing angles are bettor or worse, etc. I will be using mine indoors more than outdoors and I’m not as concerned about battery life. So I think I would possibly have preferred LCD over Pixel Qi because I plan to be indoors a lot more then outdoors and because getting the best possible battery life is not as important to me. Good luck on deciding. ;-)

  376. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:39

    what area is this in the video? Bandra?

  380. zaghir said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:42

    How lovely. Guess it is a huge number of e-mails, since it’s taking a few days to send out. I’ll just plant myself in front of my computer, and play the F5 game. =)

  381. JOHN said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:42

    me too Mikos… Ordered my first adam in December…. ordered my second as part of the test run… and now have two links for this round.

  382. gamestill said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:42

    I’ve received the email from Rohan titled “Next Round Of Order” but I haven’t received the email that Himanshu shows above (nor have I received the invite to order!)

    Has everyone else received the email that Himanshu has posted?

  384. Mikos said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:43

    Great! ;-D Well I´ll skip this one at wait till the next version of adam arrives.

  385. JOHN said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:44

    @zaghir

    did you get your link? If not let me know

  386. Mikos said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:44

    I Meant skip this pre-order2…

  387. Greg said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:45

    Yah, I like my PQ. It does looks good as seen in the video. But I think I would prefer LCD. If you plan to use our Adam outdoors then definitely consider the PQ. It does look good. But if you don’t need outdoor use, then LCD may be better for you and save you some money.

    Anyway, just a consideration… I can’t really make a recommendation either way since I have not seen both and don’t truly know how they compare in color vibrancy, and viewing angle, etc.

    I hope to get my hands on an LCD version some time soon and do a thorough comparison. Though probably not in time to help everyone decide for preorders…

  388. davidbeaty said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:46

    Wow it finally worked!!!! That was seriously the 10th try. It finally worked only on my debit card (VISA). Amazing, frustrating, but I am happy to be joining the Notion Ink family soon.

  389. madamimadam81 said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:46

    Diviash,

    Hmm..well i have already ordered it using 3dmazter’s invite. He had no use for it as he has a mastercard…however there is only one link in the mail from yahoo and it points to the right url..i have checked all sorts of properties on that link and it seems to be legit.

    But you are right ofcourse. notion ink should not be sending out mails from a free webbased email service..Rohan if you are reading this, please clarify for all as if its a legit mail, then a lot of people are having trouble trusting it.

    regards
    kirtan

  390. morningching said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:46

    What is the sender email address? I got the same email message but my sender is “notion@yahoo.com”. This email is different from the real invitation email sender.I think my email is scam.

  391. yaarji said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:47

    WOW !

    I just commented yesterday on previous blog about issuing clear guidelines about next round of Pre-order. And Low and behold, Rohan did read my comment.

    Thank you !

  397. dwarf4242 said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:49

    OK, found my country code with google.
    First attempt failed even though I called my VISA card company ahead of time and they said no problem.
    Second attempt with American Express worked, and I got a confirmation and order number.
    When attempting order status at the NI website it doesn’t recognize the order number.
    I must just be too eager!! ;-)
    At the very worst, I just ordered 2 machines…
    Best of luck to all others who are trying to order!
    Waiting is…

  403. Gauntlet said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:53

    I should probably say that it was a little tense trying to order, my payment wouldn’t go through using a couple of different cards. I had to disable my antivirus and suddenly it worked. So for those that are having trouble that could be the reason.

  404. jammiedude said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:53

    No word of a lie, 22 attempts later, 2 different cards and a bout 3 hrs of labour, i finally managed to get my order in. i need a holiday after that

  406. nrnw said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:54

    Class action lawsuit against NotionInk

    Learnt from a reliable source that a leading tort is planning a class action suit against NI. Hundreds of thousands of wannabe NI Adam owners who have been denied an Adam will join and demand compensation for ruining the F5 key on their computing devices at their home and workplace while awaiting their pre-order link. Plus, of course, the accompanying mental stress and frustration. In an initial response, the CEO of NI has suggested that users simply remap their keyboards and use assign the refresh function to a different key. He also suggested that complainants use software keyboards going forward like the one on an Adam. The ruling is expected to be in favor of the complainants and compensation will be in the form of an Adam of choice with a strict warning to NI to not push the indicated delivery dates.

    @Rohan

    Very well done NI, now we should see Adam take off. Congratulations :-)

  412. Himanshu jain said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:57

    @Atul are you planning to order one? Received mail from NI?

  413. Arif said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:57

    now that we order it (for those who are lucky enough to have their transactions processed), how will this batch take to be delivered?

  414. Arif said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:58

    how *long* will this batch take to be delivered?

  415. back2front said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:58

    Good luck to everyone, I love my Adam !!!!!!

  416. oldbushie said, on February 9, 2011 at 19:59

    WHAT?!? MasterCard still hasn’t approved you guys yet??? How much should I put on a prepaid Visa and where should I get one from that would work with the Notion Ink website??? I don’t want to get a prepaid card filled up and then find out I can’t use it.

  417. rtm7791 said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:00

    Still waiting for email. Called visa and they told me there was nothing they could do before the charge is made to make sure it goes thru.

  418. flyguyismi said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:00

    Thank you for ordering. Unfortunately, the transaction was declined. Please try again later. – c’mon, I contacted the bank and told them expect a payment to Notion Ink by way of CCAvenue and still I can’t order. I have tried 3 different cards on both pre-orders. This is beyond ridiculous. Open it up for paypal or mastercard so those loyalist who have been waiting can actually complete an order.

  419. suhaspatel84 said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:00

    Yes customers buying in India need to pay 12% custom duty on the value of adam excluding shipping cost……………

  420. Greg said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:01

    Karen, please email me at “greg@notioninkfan.com”.

    I have tried to email you twice, from two different accounts. Maybe your email account is blocking mail from me (and your pre-order invite from notion ink).

  421. sassoonss said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:04

    still havent received any link

    and I am onethe people who had received Preorder 1 link but failed due to credit card company

  422. Nick Clark said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:05

    Apparently my wife has managed to get it to work at last. Suggest you guys try again!
    Woo hoo! 1-Adam household here we come!

  423. meyergre said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:06

    just ordered :D
    thanks Notion Ink !!

  424. pk said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:06

    So far, i have also not got a link. i got a link for preorder1 but again pqi got sold out before i found the email in the middle of spam folder :-( this time i proactively cleared spam folder, set up email forwarding from my gmail to my office email id, but so far i have not got an email :-( hope NI wont ignore the ppl who have been with them well before CES 2010. lets see

  425. JOHN said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:07

    Congrats greenietots!! What is your shipment date?

  426. Paul Schoe said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:08

    No I don´t need a link, and now have my pre-order2 mail number two….

    I have one Adam and thats ok for now. :-)

    What´s up with the ‘reply’ – is it limited?

  428. Kris said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:09

  430. oldbushie said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:10

    Oh, apparently NetBanking can be used outside of India too? The wording was a bit unclear. I can directly pay from my bank account no problem as I have enough money in there. I just need to wait for the email… and keep my bank on speed dial.

  431. sassoonss said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:11

    no email received so far

    My 1st preorder failed due to credit card company

    Hope I get preorder link soon

  432. zaggs said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:12

    @Greg – on a off topic – I has sent you some Owned! Pics of Galaxy tab – not sure you got them.

  441. Diviash said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:20

    @Rohan and Team

    I know it has been mentioned before but come on guys just look at all these comments. A Notion Ink forum would organise everything so much more easily and make it simpler to navigate.

    You have the talent in the team and it can’t take too much time to sort.

    How good would it be to see a poll of who has ordered what, whose got payment issues.. hell whose birthday it is!! etc.

    Have you got some great affinity to WordPress. No offence to WordPress it has done its job as a blog but these comments and commenter’s deserve a forum.

    Diviash

  442. Greg said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:20

    Hmmm. Still no response from Karen. I wonder if it is a blocked email issue…

  443. Paul Schoe said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:21

    Yes Francois: “http://nifaq.pbworks.com/” is an important link: it is the best FAQ on Adam :-)

  444. J. said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:21

    I just ordered mine as well; I was pleased that the transaction seemed quick, orderly, and generally unproblematic.

    Was also pleased to note that my credit card company within 10 seconds of clicking “authorize” called ME (with an automated call) to verify that I’d made the purchase and to authorize it at that end, so Rohan’s suggestions that one contact one’s bank are good ones, apparently! (I know my bank does this stuff, so I didn’t worry about it and expected the call.)

    Am pleased and delighted to be on the receiving end of an Adam Pixel Qi WiFi 3g. I’ve never bought a brand-new product before; I usually wait till it’s been around a while before making that leap. But this…this is different. Proud to be a member of the Adam family.

    (And thank you, Rohan and NI folks all, for changing the warranty and return policy!)
    –Jenn

  456. Atul Tiwari said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:38

    @Himanshu – I wanted to order one but with more internal memory. apparently 8 GB is not enuf for me. I have 1 TB portable hdd but it’s not clear if Adam can support that.

    by the way, no emails yet from NI.

  457. ahmedelkady11230 said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:38

    same thing happened to me just use your username and and password here “http://store.notionink.com”

    it took me six hours to get my order to go through. :( :( :(

    i was about to give up, but i finally got one :)

  458. Greg said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:39

    I live outside of TNT’s delivery area so my Adam was brought to my door by FedEx. They left it on the porch without requiring a signature. So keep a close eye out when yours is supposed to arrive. And TNT can tell you who will be delivering it if it is not going to be them.

    And as many of you know from my unboxing video, my Adam was opened during shipping. It was customs that opened it. They have the right to open and inspect any package. So don’t freak out if yours arrived in the same condition (opened and resealed). Everything was still in perfect condition. ;-)

  459. oldbushie said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:40

    Oh, good, my friend has AMEX, and he said he wouldn’t mind helping out.

    Hey all,

    After – at least – 20 trials (and 20 “We are sorry your transaction could not be authorised due to a delay in establishing a connection to the issuing bank”) I finally managed to go through the order process, I received the confirmation mail so it should go smoothly from now on :-).
    I hope everyone facing this problem managed to make it. Oh by the way, I did mail CCAvenue about the problem, they basically replied that it was bad luck and to try again.

  464. ninjazonza said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:45

    Yay I got my order through with no issues. Thank you Rohan and others at NI !!!!!!!!!!!!! now i just need a bunch of food so i can wait by the front door. hahah jk.

  465. nrnw said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:48

    damn, this is one of those days when you when wish for your regular spam mail, but no sir, not today, so now my mailbox is stuck with the same mail count. Out of desperation, might have to mail myself from another account just to feel that things are moving and the elusive pre-order mail will arrive…

  466. Murali said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:49

    Hi, Looks like there was some issue with the account and it was regenerated and I cant login with the new link.May be some bug.
    Apologies for the disappointment.
    I hope all of you will receive your link soon.

  467. Dennis said, on February 9, 2011 at 20:54

    Finally got my order to go through. I don’t have a shipping status yet, but I feel better about the order. If you are having the Failed Transaction error, just keep trying.

    John, do you still have a link that you can share?

  473. Greg said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:06

    I’m not getting your email. Are you getting mine?
    If not, you may want to setup a gmail account. at least for this preorder. We know gmail gets through…

  474. lxne said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:06

    I have the strange feeling that I again won’t get a mail.
    As a participant of the logo-contest and many comments at that time…

    it is really making me sad.

  475. Greg said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:10

    I had the same issue when I preordered. It took me 3 times. My bank said they took care of it after the first time but the second attempt failed too. The third time I kept them on the one as I place my order. But it went through on its own the third time.

  476. ordzo said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:10

    so many things…

  477. kromot said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:10

    Hope it does!!!… i had to cancell my first Adam becasue i am going to NZ next week. and with all the delays…. it simply would not have made it in time before i leave.

    Hope yourse gets soon.

    Have yall heard about the Adam that just sold for over $1200 on eBay?

  480. rdostaly said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:13

    @Notion Ink

    I have given an invite from someone that already has ordered one during preO-1 so he gave it to me like so many others here. As I try to pay I keep getting the following error “We were not able to authenticate the response from the payment gateway”. I have emailed support but no response. Please help so I can also be a proud owner of an adam.

  490. Burt O' Stage said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:23

    From your experince…

    How about PQ in a well lit office environment?

    I’d sometimes wish to get out more but reality mostly keeps me within concrete walls and I intend to read a lot of scientific papers & PDF stuff (at least that’s why I originally got on the track).

    Any ideas?

  491. Marco said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:38

    Wow, I received 2 mails…. :D
    Placed my order and now patiently waiting for delivery ^_^

  492. Jon said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:41

  497. Stan said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:48

    Has anybody who received an invite for pre-order 1 but was unable to order received an invite for pre-order 2 yet?

    My link for PO1 wouldn’t work and I haven’t registered on any other site so I’m relying on Notion Ink sending me an email from my registration on this site.

    However I’m beginning to worry that because I was sent an email for PO1, they assume I either ordered or don’t want one and that I won’t get an email for PO2 :{

  498. neilc18 said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:49

    I posted several comments before the first preorder, got that email, but passed because all the pixelqi models were gone, and now I just tried to post again to make sure i get another email and it tells me my email address isn’t registered.. damn you wordpress…
    I hope i get another email! I want an Adam!!

  504. gaia1960 said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:56

    Good news (finally chance to order), bad news (cannot read private mails at work). Driving home for reading my mails just a little bit faster than usual. What I expected: No mail from NI .. Still almost two days to go, but my greatest fear is that PQ will be sold out once I receive my mail.

    Hopefully I can get some sleep this night, my heart is pounding like mad.

    Who gets the mails first: Those with many blog entries, those from certain countries, .. ?

    Best regards, Thomas

  505. DarkWinterNights said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:56

    I’m part of the second pre-order but have an Adam already, so if anyone would like my access code, I will provide it.

    First to post an e-mail for me to forward my invite to below will receive.

  506. flyguyismi said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:57

  508. pk said, on February 9, 2011 at 21:58

    possible. i got PO1 invite but so far not yet got the PO2 invite. so possible we are banned from pre-ordering by invite :-)

  509. DarkWinterNights said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:00

    I think after the demand last round they increased production on PiQi models – they indicated they misunderstood demand forces previously. :p

  510. clockcycle said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:01

    Hi I have a dilemma in figuring out which version to order. I am aware that the non-3G does not have access to the SIM card slot. But, I would like to confirm 100% if the non-3G versions still include the Mini PCI-e card and/or SIM card slots. Thanks -CC

    This feels just like last pre-order, I’m sitting by my computer spamming F5 on gmail and this site, seeing people all over writing “I just got my E-mail” and still nothing in my inbox.
    Last time i waited for nothing, I just hope it’s not like that now. ^^
    congrats to all who got the e-mail! =) Keep posting here.

  516. johnvelas said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:03

    Rajendra,

    Email me at “john.j.velas@gmail.com”, I received two email from NI. I am not ordering the Adam yet. I cancel my orginal order because of the delays and I was not happy with their customer support and flow of information. If you email me I will forward you the email, one that they sent me.

    Same here.

    Received an pre-order 1 link late, could not order (PQ run out..) and after that, i did not receive any of the mentioned e-mails here.

    What a theory….

    Paypal is not an option, they don’t allow delayed shippments for one,

    and they just restricted India, transactions can’t exceed $500, there are restrictions on timeing of the goods being deliveried etc.

    “https://www.paypal-apac.com/india/”

    So, if they can’t except a payment method for anywhere in the world, I don’t think they would use it, since Notion Ink is trying to establish one price, one world, one order process

  522. Rajendra said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:08

    I didn’t even receive the pre-order 2 link yet and PQ is already sold out. Now I lost all hopes for pre-order 2, everyone is getting but although I am on this blog from mid last year I haven’t received any so far ;(.

  523. chaipau said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:09

    Woohooo! SOmeone from UAE, wow! I thought I wud be the only 1! I am in Abu Dhabi! but have not got my order mail yet :( waiting waiting waiting! yallla, bring it on habibi! :)

  524. johnvelas said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:10

    Karen,

    Did you get a order email to order yet, if not email me at “john.j.velas@gmail.com”.

    I received two email, I am not ordering. If you email me I will forward email to you.

    John

  525. chaipau said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:12

    Rohan bhaaaaaai! Mera number kab aayega!
    Was in Kerala during PO 1, and couldnt order on time!
    I thought I would be the first few for PO2, hopes! but alas! :( I have been reading each and every comments today! Been mailing everyone who offered to share their PO2 mail… mail’d couple while driving too (I know I shudnt have, but for adam)

    I need an adam asap! In the sunny UAE, I wanna show off the PQi screeen! Rohan please! :(

  526. DarkWinterNights said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:13

    In a strange twist, I received pre-order 1 invite, received my Adam, and then received pre-order 2 invite. :3

  527. johnvelas said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:14

    Rajendra,

    Email me at “john.j.velas@gmail.com”. Received two email to preorder, not going to order, cancel my order for first round due to delays, etc…. Will forward email to you and Karen if she did not received her yet.

    John

  528. GroundSit said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:16

    Thanks for busting the theory.

    Still, receiving a link would certainly make me happy.

    Have fun!

  530. Luis Flores said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:17

    Hello all,

    So I recieved the confirmation email and saw the webpage with the estimated shipping dates etc. But now that I’m trying to log back in to check status or back to the “www.notionink.com/store/” it doesn’t recognize my password and when I click on forgot password it tells me that the ID isn’t recognized. Is this just me?

    Cheers!

    And SALUD to all those who have ordered and will be ordering!

  531. Paul Schoe said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:19

    Great Carlo for helping out with Amex :roll:

  532. DarkWinterNights said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:19

    If you scroll up and post under my pre-order link giveaway, you can have mine if you like. Just don’t want multiple obligations to give the same link to multiple people. :P

  537. DarkWinterNights said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:22

    Sure post your email address and I’ll forward it to you.

  538. pk said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:23

    we are on the same boat!! i am following Rohan from Dec 2009!! no PO2 invite for me :-( hope i am not in banned from pre-order list!! :-) i dont know if i will get to order even during the regular window. if i dont get PO2 invite, i wont bother about the pre-orders and will try when it hits the retail stores :-( i took the risk of forwarding my gmail to my office emailid just for the PO2 invite. but i am getting all other junk emails but this one!! :-(

  539. GroundSit said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:24

    Did you get the foreshadowing email(s) about PO2?
    Have fun!

  540. chaipau said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:26

    thanveer at gmail dot com! :)

  541. DarkWinterNights said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:26

    Or to whomever posts their e-mail address first (I’ll go based on the timestamp).

  542. Luis Flores said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:26

    Hope they find out who it is and cancel it!

  543. Chebbinator said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:26

    @carlo – awesome.
    you should be all set then karen!! good luck with the ordering process…

  544. Francois Brutsch said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:27

    Well, Adam is not for the faint hearted… Encouraged by mglaessgen, among others, I kept trying and it finally worked! So I will have a Pixel QI 3G finally, I’m extactic!

  545. wally west said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:27

    For all the naysayers that think Adam won’t go anywhere or be in demand Take A Look At this blog. Rohan said pre-order 2 would start after all pre-order 1 Adams were shipped.
    Well he is ahead of schedule by almost 6 days!!!! The demand looks good I sincerely hope everyone that wants to order will be able to.

  546. bruce said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:28

    no its real. it will take you to ordering site.

  547. zaghir said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:28

    are they sold out already?

  548. rtm7791 said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:28

    So we know emails went out, and some got them and some did not (myself included). But if I read Rohan’s post correctly they are not sending out all of the email at once. So I am still hoping it will come soon. I am also very optimistic since pre-order by invite window is much longer then the first, so they shouldn’t be sold out by the time I am able to order.

  549. Luis Flores said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:29

    Hey, here is a suggestion! I think it would be awesome if we could get collect pictures of us with our Adams in different landmarks through out the world! Once I get my Adam I’ll post a picture of Adam on the Equator monument in Ecuador. Maybe we can get Eiffel Tower pics, Empire State, Golden Gate bridge, Corcovado, Taj Mahal, the Pyramids.. well you catch my drift!

  550. taleboldi said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:30

    Can you plese send the pre-order link to me ?

    taleboldi AT ngi DOT it

    (obviusly without spaces)

    Thank you !!!
    Byez.

  551. Jon said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:31

    I am not seeing my post anywhere except under My Account->Track my comments

    So I ask again…

    Are all the emails being staggered (i.e. the notice for the pending invite email might not come until right before you get the invite email)??

  552. DarkWinterNights said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:31

    There you go chaipau. Let me know if you change your mind and I’ll pass the link onto someone else.

  553. chaipau said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:33

    Woohooo! Darkwinternight, ur my Rohan for today! Am waiting for your email now! :)

  554. GroundSit said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:34

    Its gone already.

  555. DarkWinterNights said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:35

    The link has been used (one time use). Sorry all who couldn’t get it and best of luck with your pre-orders. :)

  556. Himanshu jain said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:36

    +1. Nice Idea. Anyone for Antarctic :)

  557. coastalsteve said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:37

    Hi All
    Has anyone in the UK received their mail and managed to order. I’m waiting with bated breath.
    Come on NI make me happy.

  558. pk said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:38

    It is really painful to see lots of wasted preorder invites and the ones who really need it have to beg others for the invite!! Good job Rohan!!

  559. Dirk said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:38

    hmm.. was supposed to be in pre-order 1, wasn’t..
    now preorder 2, no email. bit disappointing

    anyone got a spare invitation? :)

  562. Doja said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:40

    Hey coastalsteve
    I got my links about 11am today and I have placed my orders.
    Did you get the pre invite mail?

  563. Himanshu jain said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:41

    ummm @Pk this blame is prolly a bit earlier. If you read the post, Rohan clearly mentions that all mails are not being sent at one go. The window for pre-order mail will end on 11th February. I think lets wait at least till 10th night. Most of us will receive a mail.

  564. DarkWinterNights said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:42

    Indeed. Best of luck with your pre-orders good sirs. :)

    Hopefully there will be a lot more PiQi models this round, and since they’re doing it over a couple of days, consumption rates should be a lot lower over that interval; if they have any remaining, they’ll probably open it up to the public again after that point. :P

  565. pk said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:44

    but what is the use if the model we need gets sold out when we receive the invite? :) i got PO1 invite but by the time i found it on the spam folder, PQI model got sold out. now i need LCD model only but i am not getting an invite even for that :-) even though i know i will get to order my adam one day, i want adam asap :-)

  566. rogerdelta said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:44

  567. coastalsteve said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:44

    Hi Doja,
    I’ve had nothing this time : (
    Hope you have fun with yours cheers for answering me.

  568. Luis Flores said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:47

    Wally, I think that this has been Rohan’s intetion all along even since PO 1. Unfortunately both the FCC/CE and the transportation damage occurred and his plan to ship things before estimated dates when down the drain. This is the smart thing to do, it’s best to be pleasantly surprised!

    Can anyone who had the Feb 14th ship date confirm if their status has changed to shipped?

  569. Luis Flores said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:47

    That would be AWESOME! Endless possibilities!

  570. Luis Flores said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:48

    Dirk, I hope you get it soon. Don’t forget that there will be a registration period as well.

  571. blodan said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:49

    Order placed and paid!

    Now only ~ a month of waiting left! *hopefully* :D:D

  572. gotthumbs said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:49

    Wow! Awesome news….I got my pre-order invite. Just one question… will they role out the honeycomb based version to me when its ready….or do I need to wait for a later time?

    Thanks

  573. Paul Schoe said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:53

    @jammiedude: congrats!

  574. pk said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:55

    i did not get any emails regarding po2. only email i got is automatic email notifications for the new post on this site and on NIH!!

  575. abhishekr said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:55

    @Rohan : Thank you Rohan and rest of the team at NI for providing a great User Experience in buying the Adam today .

    Thanks a Ton !

  576. Francois Brutsch said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:56

    My emal is francois.brutsch [at] gmail.com, just in case some fellow Swiss or Brit(not that it matters, really,maybe just easier for the time zone!) has an invite to forward… cheeky, I know ;-)

  577. Jon said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:57

    Everyone that will be invited should at least receive the notice of the pending invite email. Not getting the email notice makes me wonder if I will get the invite email.

  578. Paul Schoe said, on February 9, 2011 at 22:57

    @abhishekr: a GREAT User Experience???
    I get the impression that for many here it is more a UNIQUE User Experience.

    How much of customs did you pay ?

  581. Francois Brutsch said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:00

    Just my 2 cents: you can buy confidently and will get honeycomb when it is ready (iit’s just an update, had this happening several times on my Android phones)

  582. chowshanyuen said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:01

    How about ADAM color ?

  583. zaghir said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:04

    same problem here mate :P good luck =)

  584. Doja said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:05

    Not a problem. I do hope you get the pre order link although I think if you’re not aiming for PQi version then when that link in Rohan’s post comes alive you can still get one.

  585. back2front said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:08

    Dirk, I have one if you would like it.

  586. GroundSit said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:17

    So same as me, I see. A common thread.

  587. karen said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:18

    Please John, give it to Rajendra?

  588. dunebuddydave said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:20

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I WILL BE AN ADAM OWNER TOO….or will it own me….deep thoughts by Jack Handy.

  589. themave said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:21

    Rohan,

    I understand about the market place, everyone should know this

    “•Adam does not have market access because it is not a phone. Android Market is an app store for phone apps.”

    but it is good you just flat out stated it. plane and clear

    But my question is when is the Genesis Marketplace going to open, I am pretty sure everyone would like to get tablet specific apps.

  590. jdbbtt said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:21

    YEA!! I just got home from work and say the email from NI! I just ordered my Adam. Hopefully it will make it to me before I leave in March for a field study in Rome. I am really hoping to use it there!

    Adam Variant: PixelQi LCD, Wifi + 3G (UMTS 900/2100 MHz)

  591. darembo said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:28

    still waiting on my invite :(
    Could someone confirm for me that the order process does support american express ,since i am in europe (netherlands) that could save me a lot of hassle for the payment.
    If anyone has got a spare invite ….waiting now is driving me even more nuts then the first preorder did :)

  592. dwarf4242 said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:29

  593. Doja said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:34

    Karen…!!! Have you got your link/ordered your adam yet?
    My Lcd is being shiiped on the 15th of feb and PQi 10 days later. So you might not get the comparison video until the first few days in march.
    I can’t wait!!!!
    So excited :)

  594. gamestill said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:37

    you are not the only one.
    i slept for around 150-160 hrs in the last 2 months. ( around 2,5 hours a day).
    though that’s not only because of adam but 70% credit goes to adam.

  595. gamestill said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:38

    my adam shipping on 15th :D :)

  596. themave said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:39

    Yes it is an update, but Adam has to be able to support it, and Notion Ink has to do there part to port it to Adam, Which they have committed to do – YEAH

    But, there are many phones that are stuck on old versions of android that will never be able to upgrade, to even FROYO 2.2

    It is not a given that any android device can just upgrade, many and maybe most actually don’t. That is one of the biggest complaints android phone owners have.

  597. spindlethin said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:41

    Would love a link, but I can’t remember if I’ve actually posted here before – most of the time, there’s not much to say by the 600th comment.

    Any idea when they’re just going to bring it to market?

  598. Doja said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:43

    Overwhelmed by all help offered today, dunno what to say…
    I am proud to be part of it, and i’m sure you are too.
    This is business with heart and soul :)

  600. dwarf4242 said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:49

    Yes, that’s the storefront, and you need your password.
    I got both an email from CCavenue and from NI confirming the purchase. The storefront gives an expected delivery date between 25 Feb and 10 March. I can’t wait ;-)

  601. Madan Mohan said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:52

    Got my pre-order mail finally!!

    Only concern is I see is the conversion rate is INR 50 for $1. Felt that is a bit unfair as we customers in India have to pay 10% more than folks in the US. And on top of that, of course add another 15% customs; so basically it means a 25% premium for Indian customers over the US customers.

    NI, hope you’ll at least take the exchange rate into consideration… :-)

  602. dwarf4242 said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:53

    balu340:
    Try “http://store.notionink.com”. You will need your email address and the password supplied in the invite.
    Luck…

  603. Kris said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:56

    I’m still waiting for the link… yet to get it :(

  604. platosadvisor said, on February 9, 2011 at 23:58

    I haven’t received my link yet…

    I hope I get one. I received a link preorder 1, but didn’t have access to any cc other than MC until after the pq’s role out.
    I will be seriously disappointed if I miss out this time around too.

    This sure is family :)

  610. PaulB said, on February 10, 2011 at 00:14

    Still waiting for my link…..getting a little worried now that I have not received a link

  611. wjwjwjwj said, on February 10, 2011 at 00:20

    Finally managed to order an Adam!!!! Thumbs Up!!!!!!!

    I got the E-Mail this morning and pre ordering was a lot smoother than last time! You can order the device in a first step and then try to proceed with payment as a second step several times. Last time everything seemed to be one process and I failed – could not order Adam because of payment issues. After unlocking the card Adam was sold out – was almost crying after I was awake the half night waiting for pre ordering to start.

    Only payment with VISA was a pain again:
    – First I tried with my VISA card, got blocked because I forgot this supid security code (yes, stupid me)
    – Called VISA but they could not unlock the card because if you lock it by typing in the wrong code 3 times you have to receive a new code by MAIL (not E-Mail!!!)
    – Organized a second VISA card and tried to order
    – Got blocked by VISA because of a transaction to India (Rohan already recommended calling your credit card company first)
    – Unblocked the VISA card via telefone
    – Then then VISAS payment gateway did not work
    – Afterwards CCAvenues payment gateway did not work
    – And now FINALLY I managed to complete the transaction
    – AND: I am extremely HAPPY now – hope to get the Adam soon

    But after all the new pre order process and webinterface allows to handle the whole payment pain VERY well. Last time the pre ordering website was quite alpha, this time it is really a tremendous improvement!

    So looking forward to hold the device in my hands soon. Again: Thumbs up Rohan!!!

  612. kpbal said, on February 10, 2011 at 00:20

    I bought a prepaid visa card from money mart (costed 22.60 in canada)..and eventually worked.

  613. Chebbinator said, on February 10, 2011 at 00:20

    @kris – yes. Did you check your spam mail folder yet.. I know thay are sending them in batches… so if you think you should get one .. give it couple more hours

  614. chaipau said, on February 10, 2011 at 00:21

    Ok Finally ordered! from a borrowed link though! courtesy @Darkwinternights! Thankx bro!

    I hope all goes well, using borrowed invite and all! I guess people who has booked using borrowed invites should get together maybe a forum post on notioninkaddicts so we could get together and share any issues and solutions :)

    Currently showing Feb 25 – Mar 10 delivery date!

  615. Nick said, on February 10, 2011 at 00:24

    Well rather disappointing that I haven’t received an email :( did anyone that has posted here before that is not registered at the other sites get an email?

  616. back2front said, on February 10, 2011 at 00:24

    I didn’t hear back from Dirk so if anyone else is interested let me know soon, I have to leave and I don’t want the link to go to waste.

    that would be awesome :)

  620. luis said, on February 10, 2011 at 00:25

    Rohan I hope that people who buy Adam in preorder 1 and shipped was delayed to 14 February have priority in the order of shipped this time ;)

    One more reason to buy Adam with Pixel Qi display instead of Ipad or others tablets

    “Congratulations on being the proud owner of an Adam!”

    That’s how I have been too. The waiting game for delivery is not much better, but at least you have a deadline to aim for. Then, I imagine there will still be little sleep with the updates and customization and reviewing of the reviews for tips and tricks.

    Oh yeah: Adam Variant: PixelQi LCD, Wifi + 3G (UMTS 850/1900 MHz)

  624. deuscide said, on February 10, 2011 at 00:33

    I had only posted here once or twice, I got an email. I’m sure it is random.

  625. nordin said, on February 10, 2011 at 00:36

    I am also waiting

  626. deuscide said, on February 10, 2011 at 00:36

    Same experience. Failed all morning, but at least the ordering site kept my details so I didn’t have to enter them again. My order finally took a few minutes ago

  627. borismedia said, on February 10, 2011 at 00:40

    I’ve heard people say to try other internet browsers – IE or Chrome instead of Firefox. I got Firefox to work on Pre-order 1.5, though.

    PayPal is not allowed by Indian govt. for transactions above $500.
    it was being misused by overseas Indians as a money transfer service. So Indian govt has put a limit of $500 on Indian merchants for foreign transactions.

  629. Rajendra said, on February 10, 2011 at 00:44

    Finally ordered adam.
    My transaction was declined by my bank due to fraud activity (Both chase & BoA). BoA called me with in 15 secs after the transaction is declined (chase called after 5 min). Spoke to them and asked to remove the restriction and all went fine.

    So if your transaction is declined, call your banks fraud prevention no. and once you confirm a ton questions they will lift the restriction.

    Probably adding a paypal/google checkout would have prevented these issues.

    From other comments it looks like you have to keep trying over and over and it may eventually go through.

  633. finndo said, on February 10, 2011 at 00:56

    I received the email from Notion Ink Design Labs, noreply at notionink dot com with the same text as someone quoted above, I had paid down my master card to make the purchase in case it happened, and now can’t use it!! luckily I was able to move some money around and delay some bill payments to get it together in my checking account! I called the bank and they stayed on the phone with me while I filled out the purchase (PixelQi+wifi), and they monitored the purchase request and told me it was approved and the money had been pulled from my account to send to them.

    ALL models were still available at 7PM GMT

    hope that makes some feel better – South Carolina USA

    estimated shipping dates were provided:
    Estimated Shipping Date 25th February to 10th March 2011

    also, when you enter the phone number enter it in this format 001234567890
    no spaces, not hyphens, no parenthesis (although the example shows parenthesis)

  634. Madan Mohan said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:01

    A question for folks who have used the adam and reviewed it already. From all comments sounds like this is too much of a techie device. I was hoping my wife and kids also can use the adam. Do you think non-techies can use the Adam or it is too complicated for them??

    Thanks for all the reviews…!!

  635. borismedia said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:03

    Just FYI, you might want to try a re-loadable pre-paid VISA. I don’t know if it will work any different, but the pre-paid Visa I had did not work, and then I had to scrounge up additional money to pay my friend for use of her card (could not just give her visa b/c she needed cash to pay her credit card).

  637. borismedia said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:06

    Rohan mentioned the sheer volume of e-mails that had to go out. Maybe this is one way they can manage that number???

  638. wally west said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:09

    Luis

    Right on!! I had wondered if Rohan might pull a positive surprise out of his hat. Which has me wondering if the final pre order 1 shipments may ship sooner too. My Adam is due to ship the 15th of Feb with the final Pre order 1 batch, just maybe I’ll get a surprise as well? I’m not counting on it though. Knowing I’m likely to receive Adam before February’s end has me as happy as a clam!! It is real nice to see the smiles ahead of the frowns today!!

    Cool Karen,

    And I know from experience, that you shall never forget this what is happening!!
    What I also know is that you shall never get this by that yeakkkk…. Apple brand, only money is important there.
    And between all the gadget thingies this is a pearl that we must treasure…..

    I hope all will come OK for you, with you Adam!!

    Android market is an app store for Phone? Then what is Google’s plan for Tablets? I understand that it has lots of apps made for phones but customer should have an alternative if the market is not the one.

  642. boeltwit said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:18

    Yes Mr. Schoe!

    We could have payed twice and get a yeagh… Apple, but then we did not knew this all here.
    And that you lost your money and your Adam is still sleeping in his box in China, while you are in Holland, thats you own fault..!!

    Lol, I love this all, we are going to make history here Paul….!!

    Namaste, Bert

    Got my preorder email this morning and ordered a LCD wifo only Adam!!!!

    I was going to wait for the xoom but considering the xoom price and the specs being very similar to the Adam (Honeycome should be on Adam as well) I went with the Adam. I’m sure it will not be perfect but with a $400+ savings I think it will do just fine.

    Can’t wait!!

    Francois,

    Another happy Adam owner to be, congratulations! Hopefully Adam will be in large enough production that you can have as many as you want. I guess spreading them around is the most fair thing at this time.

  649. nrnw said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:29

    folks, i am also “family”…despite earlier assurances from Notion Ink (i have 2 emails from them), I did not get the invite…wrote to some of you today, but no links from anyone!! looks like some folks of the family are being treated better than others!!!

  650. Nick said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:32

    Well that sucks, not that I posted a bunch here or anything, but it is rather upsetting that a coworker of mine that I turned on to the Adam got his email today and I have none. I thought they may have been doing it by site subscription since he is also registered at notionaddicts and notioninkhacks and I am not… I was hoping he could order 2 but it looks like they are limiting 1 purchase per email… Oh well here’s to hoping that I will get my email later and there will still be some left for me to order.

  651. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:32

    Let us know as soon as you get your order through! I hope you prep your cam for some unboxing! I think we would all look forward to that!

  652. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:36

    Hey Nick! Keep those spirits up! I hope you get it. From what I understand people will be getting emails up until the 11th and then there will be a registration link for you to register through there. If not, perhaps there are people still out there who won’t use their invites!

    I’m holding out, hopefully I can get an invite for my sister after everyone that got an invite and want them place their orders! :)

  653. RK said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:36

    Still no invite email. And it has been that way since preorder1. Somethings never change. :-(

  654. aephur said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:36

    Niiiice pre-orders! :) awesome! Does being in moderation count as having posted?

  655. Chebbinator said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:37

    @Albert – If your concern is about the 7 day period – I’m sure NI will honor that – since you reported it to them within 7 days. (Of course your sleep/reboot problem is legit and might very well be hardware).

  656. pitje said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:38

    sheeeeesh….
    After what seemed like half a lifetime I finally got an email, and was eager to order my own adam.
    But alas, *STILL* no possibility to pay using master card.
    I know, it’s been a long known issue and it’s not notion ink I’m waiting for, it’s master card.

    But STILL.

    I mean, we’ve been waiting for a year, and only in the last few months someone suddenly realised that people should be able to PAY for their product?
    It’s very nice of Rohan to have a blog and post in glorious wordings about his product, oh no, his *dream* or whatever esoteric shit this piece of hardware is supposed to be representing, but I wish he didn’t do that and instead get things working.
    Quite frankly, I’m fed up with all this talk and no real movement. It’s the same with the website, it looks nice and all, but the content is lacking, and most pages haven’t been updated for ages. The blog is on a wordpress server, for christ’s sake!
    That doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but why then have a website at all? I can understand that NI is a beginning company, and it has its ups and down, but this is getting ridiculous. As a webdeveloper I find this an insult to your consumers.

    As noted before, the waiting is on master card. Which simply means that notionink too late getting its shit in order.

    And since I’m bitching anyway, the market is an app store for ANDROID apps, not specifically for phone-apps.

  657. suicideclown1 said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:39

    I feel obligated to post this hear because I formerly posted an evaluation saying my battery life lasted 6 hours

    this is an excerpt from my thread at “http://notioninkhacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=673”

    “Battery- I didnt turn my adam on today until i got to class, so it had a 100% battery upon arrival. I have 4 hours of lecture today and that is all the battery lasted. I was using a keyboard, the office suite, I downloaded several items from the market place and I was sending and receiving emails… Thats it. I must make a correction on the previously mentioned battery stats I posted because I did not take into account that 6% of the battery cannot be used by the consumer. Your adam tablet shuts down as soon as 6% is hit and when you try and start it back up, it instantly shuts down when you unlock the screen. So I am now confident in saying that you adam might last around 6 hours if you leave it by itself with the screen shutoff and playing movies to your TV… but it wil NOT last 6 hours under heavy constant use like I used today… This is disturbing.”

  658. Chebbinator said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:39

    @lakshmanmv – go tell that to Google ;-) BTW the tablet store will be out in conjunction with Android 3.0 . Officially Android 2.x is made for phone form factor devices.

  659. PaulB said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:40

    I just was reading through the postings and saw the statement about the Android marketplace. I thought with Andriod 3.0 (Honeycomb) that has changed. All the demos I have seen of Honeycomb tablets so far all have access to the market place. I would assume once the Adam moves to Honeycomb that it will have access to the market

  660. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:41

    Hopefully they won’t sell out LCD + 3G by tomorrow or Friday, I’m hoping I can order my sister one, otherwise she won’t get one till December or so. I’ve gotten her all hyped up and then I found out it’s one device per invite. Hopefully she can register when that link is up.

  661. borismedia said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:42

    Have you called bank? That happened with me. The Failed Payment e-mail from CCAvenue said unauthorized usage. The next time I tried paying, they were one phone at same time to watch it go through.

  662. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:44

    I’ve been checking out the news on the HP+Palm tablet and I still love the Adam. Why are so many tablets going for the iPad form factor?!

  663. borismedia said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:47

    That is why I am having it delivered to my work address. Even if it means missing out on a weekend delivery.

  664. pk said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:49

    Congratz dude!! did you get an invite email?

  665. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:49

    How much do you think the keyboard is sucking out of your device? Could you test the battery with out the keyboard? Prolly not during class, it’d probably be annoying without the keyboard and uncomfortable. By the way, what have your classmates said about the Adam?

  666. borismedia said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:49

    I also had to tell them international. Then, they were like “Oh, ok”

  667. hshomran said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:52

    So. is this going to ever hit retailers? Or it will be hit and miss order rounds indefinitely?

  668. Paul Schoe said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:54

    Yes PaulB, we all expect that to be the case. However at this moment Honeycomb is not yet installed on the Adam. Google only made it available in the last 2 weeks and it has to be tuned to fit on the Tegra processor and with Eden. We hope for a very easy upgrade process for our Adams as soon as Honeycomb is available for Adam.

    At this moment you can get access to the market by using one of the procedures that are mentioned on notionhacks . com. Many Adam users have already installed apps from the market.

  669. Glenn M said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:54

    This is humor at its best – based in truth. I have had the same experience where I wait and wait and wait for a delivery. Only to step out for 10 minutes and come back and find the dreaded tag on the door.

  670. Doja said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:55

    I simply can’t comprehend the sarcasm and the back stabing going on here at the moment. I didn’t get a pre order 1 link and it hurt like nothing I’ve ever known both physically and emotionally. I did whinge and ask Rohan why back then.
    This time around if you read the post really carefully, Rohan said that they had a HUGE list and would do it differently from the first pre order by issuing out the email links gradually over a set period before the link in the post becomes active.
    So yes not everyone has got the links and believe it or not it hurts that family members like Karen, Andromeda, Mehdi and many others out there haven’t got a link but c’mon there’s still 2 days to go.
    Let’s give this a chance and if it fails then feel free to unleash your venom but for now can we just wait and let this pre order drama unfold.
    @Rohan: please don’t let me get my butt kicked by La Familia.
    It will all be okay in the end :)

  671. suicideclown1 said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:55

    keyboard may just lose 30 minutes of life over all… if that. It only uses more juice when actively typing to send signal. otherwise drain is minimal. So if removed, would only inc time to 4.5 hours of use with office, email, and browser… That is what slashgear was saying. I can now almost confirm Slashgears reporting…

  672. gcrv said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:57

    on 11th IST the link in this blog will become active so there is hope.

  673. nrnw said, on February 10, 2011 at 01:59

    yes, the process is frustrating for those of us who have not been lucky enough with their process…anyways, if you are not going to order can you pls share your pre-order link “naren_iimk@yahoo.co.uk”

  674. gcrv said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:02

    congrats Amit!!! Looks like it was just not you who was waiting for Adam!! Cooing and applause!!

    Could you resist the urge to root and install apk’s for a few days. Why dont you test your battery life and other things before installing any non NI applications.

  675. borismedia said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:02

    Rohan said they would not all be in one go. In Pre-Order 1, they got marked as spammers, so trying to avoid that this time.

  676. Tess.y said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:03

    I haven’t paid attention to the battery issue so far, is it possible that your battery is defective?

  677. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:03

    Hmmm… how about screen contrast? Would you be able to turn off the back light in the classroom? I know that is probably the solution you are looking for (cuz another solution would be to try to plug the Adam, defeating the whole mobility aspect of the device) But at least to help a little till you get an official answer from NI.

  678. pitje said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:04

    I’m sorry, but I never said I wouldn’t be placing an order…

    I was just venting my frustration, and letting NI know that the fact that the product is finally released doesn’t mean shit if it’s so hard to get.
    (I’m stopping posting for now, because it will only be more bitching from my side)

    So sorry again, and I hope you get your invite soon

  679. gcrv said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:04

    Report this to NI

  680. mrhatfi said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:06

    Why does Notion Ink just all of a sudden stop answering emails? I emailed them last week and asked if I could change my Pixel Qi to a LCD and I got a response from Alan saying that It wouldn’t be a problem to change and to just let him know.. Now I have sent them 3 emails saying that I would indeed like to make that change and they have all gone unanswered.. Its almost like they are stalling before mine is ready to ship next week.. Please Rohan have someone look into my order…

    Thanks!

  681. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:06

    +! haha and +1. You are totally right, I’ve been wondering if people are even reading Rohan’s blog post or just responding to the fact that emails have been sent!

  682. suicideclown1 said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:08

    I am almost certain Rohan said he got 6 hours with full back-light and rigorous use…

    How to discharge your Adam with-in 6 hours?

    Posted in Uncategorized by Rohan Shravan on October 29, 2010
    Dear All,

    I wrote in the last post that you can easily get 15 hours from the device. My personal use case is different and so will be yours. Blogs world over picked up this line as posted as Adam gives 15 hours. I don’t think that’s the right way to look at it.

    You might have noticed that your phone might work for 2 full days and might require 2 charges a day. Based on the use cases devices claiming 10 hours have ended in 4 hours (3D gaming). Clearing this confusion is extremely important, so here we are with the post “How to discharge your Adam in 6 hours only?” Here is the list which we have compiled:

    Play 1080P continuously with full brightness and at full volume (displayed as 1024 on Adam and not via HDMI to TV) (no idle time) (Adam has BIG speakers)
    Play YouTube Flash videos on Wi-Fi or 3G network (no idle time)
    Use Streaming 3D maps on 3G network with GPS
    Record HD Video and stream it over the Wi-fi networks

    Play an augmented reality 3D game with camera input over the network (wi-fi of 3G)
    There can be so many use cases where you can discharge it much faster than your normal use case, so be cautious when you read “Adam claims minimum 15 hours of battery”! There tests are on full display, full volume which is never going to be true. Pixel Qi display is 10 times efficient so a huge drop here, if you use earphones, you get more juice and so on..

    Will be posting that interactive chart so we all would know our own usage times.

  686. mki7680 said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:25

    I asked to change my order from Pixel Qi/wifi to LCD/wifi last weekend and they said it was too late to change. My scheduled shipment is Feb. 14. I replied asking to cancel my order and have no received no response for 2 days. If they end up shipping me the Pixel Qi/wifi model, I haven’t decided to sell it or keep it. Now I hear the LCD display is not that great either. I’ll see what happens in the next couple of days.
    I don’t see why they couldn’t change my order if if it would delay shipping. They have given me a choice. I am disappointed with their customer service. They need to keep us early adopters happy because we will be their messengers.

  687. gcrv said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:26

    dont worry you will still be able to order the link in the Rohans blog post will get active on 11th feb India time. You can order from there.

  688. suicideclown1 said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:28

    @tess, TY. I didnt have time to look it up and I didnt remember it said 15 hours. I thought it was 10… So I am getting 4 hours using office, email and browser alone. No speakers, lcd on half brightness…

    Rohan?

  691. gcrv said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:37

    It is just like a computer or laptop. Sure they can use it.
    They can browse the web and once you install the apps they can use it comfortably.
    for the first 2-4 weeks there may be some small software glitches which NI will send Updates. I dont forsee any major issues on usability front.

  692. bsmdbt said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:38

    Google premiered Honeycomb last week in an hour long event (can be found on YOUTUBE) on the new Motorola XOOM. They specifically addressed your question. Almost All the apps in the Google MARKET have been ported to Android 3.0 compatability. When you buy a XOOM, you will get full interoperability with all existing apps in the market. This is why Googles endorsement and selection of the Motorola XOOM to debut Honeycomb 3.0 at CES 2010 was HUGE!

  693. suicideclown1 said, on February 10, 2011 at 02:39

    I just don’t get why you didn’t make a deal with a retailer. Online or otherwise. It would’ve made things so much easier. Let you focus on development. Instead of having to do everything in-house. Let the sellers do the selling. Amazon, Carrefour, Expansys……anything…….a place that has all the financial and logistical processes already in place……..

    This is in fact one of the MASSIVE bending of the truth (some would call it creative reality) that Rohan tends to do. Same as “your orders have been shipped”, “There will be no delay” etc.

    I have a sneaking feeling that they are doign the Pre-Order 2 now because the Feb 14th orders are going to be delayed till the 25th. They are getting the orders in before the negativity and backlash starts up again.

    Posting again to try get out of moderation… stupid links.

    No invite for me yet, despite receiving one last time :(

    I’ve organised a pre-paid Visa and I’m ready to order when (or if) the invite arrives.

    Congratulations to everyone who did recieve and order their Adam – I’m feeling a little green with envy right now!

  703. mrzeal said, on February 10, 2011 at 03:02

    Hi all family!
    I got both my emails earlier this morning – decided on LCD/3G this afternoon – decided on mode of payment a few minutes back and called the bank to let them know and proceeded to order – had to enter the phone# including country code with no spaces and no ‘(‘ ‘)’ characters – (if you have to change anything for bill addr; its easier if u un-check and check the shipping address check-box again to ‘copy’ the changes) – confirmed the charge and entered card details in CCAve page and hit pay now…. it refreshed/attempted to connect about 3 times (sort of what you see when you wait for flight search results) as I saw the ‘dont refresh or go back’ message – and then a security pop-up to inform am going to a non-secure page (‘cos CCAve is https Vs store.notionink which is plain http) pressed ok – and saw the ‘order complete/summary’ screen – with all my details – plus the wide shipping range of Feb 25 to March 10 – 2011.

    Needless to say am happy and thanks to all for the info about the various options and special thanks to NI team for making the extra efforts to make this a great success.

    Greg – I’ve been silently following your blog/site too – just didnt get a chance to comment… been busy too… once again great job and thanks for all the wonderful videos/info/updates…

    Congrats to all who have the Adam and/or pre-ordered and keeping the flag flying high..

    catch you all soon…

    have a good evening/night/morning (for our family members from down under and beyond)

  704. themave said, on February 10, 2011 at 03:05

    I agree, and Notion Ink has an alternative, It is called Genesis

    they list it as coming soon on their web site,
    they have developers working on programs just for Adam

    they show it working in the promo video on the main page of the web site

    but when people receive their tablets (there is no Genesis available)

    that is the question I am asked, when will Genesis be availble ?

  705. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 03:17

    Albert, keep us posted on NI’s response to your issues! I hope they do this soon. Your videos and comments have played a big role in my deciding to go for the Adam after the “storm”. Not that anyone “deserves” special treatment, but I think some of you guys should get swifter attention as many of us have an eye out on your opinions!

  706. themave said, on February 10, 2011 at 03:19

  707. Burt O' Stage said, on February 10, 2011 at 03:19

    I feel like crying…

    Sooooooo close, but even my old man’s VISA card eventually got deactivated in January…

    After seven times “transaction declined” I called the Bank and they confirmed this.

    Had I been a member of PO1 my VISA card would still have been active. But now…

    I’m at loss here. And al myl buddies are on Mastercard, too. NOT FAIR.
    Well, somehow not fair…

    *shakes fist to heaven, sobbing, the curtain falls*

  708. LeoP said, on February 10, 2011 at 03:26

    Received the pre-invite.

    However, l’m waiting for my PO1 adam on the 14th.

    Checked my status on notionink and it’s still shipping on the 14th from the factory in China.

  709. gryphonv said, on February 10, 2011 at 03:33

    IMHO, the trick is that you should post once more in this thread, after receiving 1st email – to get email with pre-order link :) At least that helped me :) Finally, I’ve managed to order ADAM!!! :)))
    BTW, anyone know how the Check Pre-Order Status feature works???? I’ve filled the Оrder Number & Registered Email, but got only “Please enter correct Order Number and Email” :(((

    I wouldn’t mind that link and pw, I was supposed to be in Preorder 1 also, but alas no e-mail back then either.

    My e-mail: t_termite at hotmail.com

    I really hope there are some PixelQi screens left :-)

  715. suicideclown1 said, on February 10, 2011 at 03:42

    lol, LeoP… I think it is funny as hell to see these other people going crazy over ordering the adam when we cant even get customer support to call us when we have a defective product… I guess they will learn the hard way…

  716. Candyman808 said, on February 10, 2011 at 03:43

    PLEASE HELP ME!!! I DIDN’T GET AN EMAIL!!! :( Sorry for the caps.
    @Rohan ..I also have a small forum section for Notion Ink. “http://thisiskawaii.com/forum/forum?id=266” Would like to post more once i get my Adam.. but I didn’t get an email. Please Help Me!!!

  717. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 03:45

    From the post it seems like they are mailing people manually. So let’s not forget it’s like 3 in the morning in India right now!

    2Luis Flores
    Thanks :)
    Do You mean that Pre-order Status = Shipping Information & Estimated Shipping Date (25th February to 10th March 2011 for me) on customer page?

  719. stevesilk51 said, on February 10, 2011 at 03:50

    @suicideclown1

    Try to contact Alan at NI support, he is usually pretty good at getting back, but bear in mind that I recall Rohan has mentioned a group from NI have gone to China to deal with shippng etc.

    Good luck, I know you must be really frustrated as I’ve noted a fair number of posts from you.

    Regards

    Steve

  720. gumdoc said, on February 10, 2011 at 03:52

    Well I tested the water in pre order put my toes in, was afraid of the darkness and murkiness surrounding Notion ink and it’s fiat lux. Since then some scattered rays of light among the dark impending gloom gave me hope.
    Now I have plunged in, hopefully :-) its eden and not Davy Jones locker!
    Seriously speaking:
    Unlike other people, I had no issues with my preorder, took me less than a minute to navigate and complete my order! Used AMeX, am in in US of A.
    Great Job Team notion ink! Keep up the good work; waiting for similar exceptional quality experience on receiving my tablet and working with it.
    Thanks

    Guys,

    Anyone know what the estimated shipping date for the next order will be? I ordered an adam today but the order confirmation e-mail I received did not have an estimated ship date.

  722. dentalchick said, on February 10, 2011 at 04:00

    I was just reading up and I undetstand Greg already helped you out :)

  723. jmoroh said, on February 10, 2011 at 04:02

    Hello Everyone,
    Today I received my Pre-Order mail at 6:51, right before I was about to leave the house. I was so frustrated…I was literally about to finish the order form! Well my dad decided to save me and finish the process. I left the house with excitement and a smile on my face.

    Upon checking my phone I had received a multitude of texts about how the Pre-Order process was going. The most common phrase in the texts was “i’m about to kill myself!”
    My dad tried unsuccessfully 13 times to order my PQI Wifi Adam. Immediately after the first order attempt, my bank’s fraud department called. My dad was on the phone for 40 minutes trying to order until finally he got through. I guess the 14th times the charm!

    3 credit cards, 13 unsuccessful order forms, and what seemed like hundreds of angry texts later, I can now proudly state I am the (soon to be) owner of a Notion Ink ADAM.

    P.S. I know this ordering process was almost worse than the last one, but go in to it with a positive attitude. I know it might be really frustrating but just keep your faith in Notion Ink. They are working as hard as they can. They might not always do the right thing, but they bounce back 100% stronger than before.

    Please no negative comments or slander towards NI.

    Thanks,
    Jmoroh

  724. termite42 said, on February 10, 2011 at 04:08

    Tik tak tik tak . . time flies and I can just feel how the pile of PixelQi screens are dwindling while no order link has been sent to me yet (didn’t get one for preorder1 either)
    Have to go to bed soon, but am afraid to do so, in case I miss out on the order e-mail . . anybody here feels the same? For the second time?
    Very frustrating!
    Ahh well all good adams comes to those who wait :-) so this better be really good :-D

  725. stoneyr said, on February 10, 2011 at 04:18

    ohhhh, i am so eagerly waiting in my inbox, i check it class all the time and when im home i always have my inbox open, i cant wait to have my name in the list then my Adam will be here before i know it :D

    ya as soon as i can get my email i am going to go into the bank and let them know i will be placing a costly order to a new company called Notion Ink so they know it wont be fraud and they will let it through. hopefully otherwise ill be in ur shoes lol

  728. gumdoc said, on February 10, 2011 at 04:21

    BSNL, Tata Docomo,AIrtel has launched partially.Vodafone coming fast.
    So prudently take adam with 3G. In the coming months there will be more offers for sure regarding 3g. SO I advise to go with 3G. I had the same doubt and fellow mates of this blog helped me :)

  754. JD said, on February 10, 2011 at 06:39

    6hrs of battery live for a multimedia device is somewhat disturbing at this point. Ipads are getting some 10hours of life while watching movies.

    I hope the hardware issues you are experiencing are also diminishing the battery capacity of the unit as well.

    I also hope they are addressing that.

    JD

  755. suicideclown1 said, on February 10, 2011 at 07:00

    What is starting to annoy me even more is that NI doesnt have any replacement stock for people with defective devices. If I have to get mine replaced, I have to wait until they make more… on top of that they are selling more with a ship date of 25th… I dont want to wait that long If I have to ship mine back to them. I hope, when they decide to replace mine, that they ship me a replacement while I use this one and then ship them back mine once it is replaced… but I cant even get them to contact me about the replacement… This would be beneficial to them because I am actively blogging issues with this device and making tons of video’s promoting the device… so one in my hands is better than one in the mail… Well this marks the end of today, officially 3 days without word now… NI? you there? Customer service increases and decreases like the earth revolves around the sun…

    Are you sure? I have a galaxy tab 7 inches, no wifi, bluetooth,gps ON, low display brightness just typing on the soft keyboard in lectures gives me only about 5 hrs..

    Anyway, ordered 2 adams..PQ and LCD

  760. Veeraraagavan said, on February 10, 2011 at 07:39

    Hi Guys, I am a bit off the hook here – been really busy as I told in the earlier post. I did receive a link a few days back, when NI tested the order system, and I indeed ordered an LCD 3G model (but I want the Pixel Qi 3G model). I couldn’t order the Pixel Qi 3 G model, as it was showing as not available during that time, and only Pixel Qi Wifi was showing as available. Hence, my decision of going for the LCD 3G model. Rohan, my friend, if you are reading this buddy, please allow me to upgrade to Pixel Qi model.

    BTW, time for second impressions on my first Pixel Qi Adam:
    1. Touch Response is not great only with NI’s chrome implementation – somehow I find the response slow, when compared Opera and even other Market apps.
    2. Mail’d gives me read time out error – and crashes many a time – this is happening with its default gmail config. Sometimes when i open Mail’d, I get an error “Unkown Certificate” – Read time out – Accept key – Reject Key (and I have pressed on Accept to allow it to sync with gmail)
    3. When I connect Adam via USB, I dont see my external micro sd loaded in adam as a Removable storage – I am only able to see Adam’s internal sd card when I turn on USB storage.
    4. I am able to move applications to only the internal SD /microSD available – is this because of how Adam recognizes my external (read -additional 16GB micro sd in the micro sd slot)?
    5. Opera Mobile works without problems when Full Screen mode is turned ON.
    6. Facebook panel doesn’t connect in 3G (says connection is slow – whereas Adam is actually in 3G mode – with good page load speeds).
    7. Still really busy to test other apps.

  761. jmoroh said, on February 10, 2011 at 07:40

    You should see what I have to put up with…It’s well worth it though. I have an ADAM!

  762. Chebbinator said, on February 10, 2011 at 07:41

    Bad customer support has been their Achilles heel.

  763. Veeraraagavan said, on February 10, 2011 at 07:42

    @Rohan,
    I can pay the difference money whichever method/mode you choose

  764. Chebbinator said, on February 10, 2011 at 07:46

    @talung – What makes you calculate 2 weeks delay? Why not 1 week – or 3 weeks? You seem to have insider info..

  765. Chebbinator said, on February 10, 2011 at 07:51

    @madan – Officially there is no Android tablet – hence with tablet form factors – there is a fair amount of hacking involved.. With phones – they are better (still not as slick as apple). I think they will be able to use it – with some basic hacking to get some fundamental apps running. No tricks needed once you have he needed apps running tho..

  766. suicideclown1 said, on February 10, 2011 at 07:53

    @Talung and Cheb… I am not sure what is going on, but a team of indian guys dont just up and go to china for the hell of it when they have problems of their own…

    for those of you waiting to buy and have not gotten an e-mail, I would not be surprised if an open to public link appears at top in the post where it says link coming soon, after the time has lapsed with private invites not being filled. Everyone just understand that we are posting issues that we are running into aswell as current adam owners. You are also buying into our situation. be patient and hopefully any issues that arise will eventually be addressed…

  767. Himanshu jain said, on February 10, 2011 at 07:54

    @Veera I think model change request can be done easily. Mail their support team. Last time too many have changed their models. But are you sure you want one more PixelQi? Means you already have one. Many guys who are ordering or planning to order their second adam are going for LCD(mainly because brighter colors and they already have one Pixel Chi).

  768. Himanshu jain said, on February 10, 2011 at 07:58

    Pitje I hope you will also get your invite. 11th is quite a few hours distant :).

  771. JD said, on February 10, 2011 at 08:03

    I guess I am hoping for better from NI, as I don’t want to compare it to crappy tablets like the Galaxy Tab.

    The only tablet out there currently that’s comparable is the Ipad, and when it shows up the Xoom. We will see how the latter performs once it’s released.

    I hope I get mine next week..

  772. Himanshu jain said, on February 10, 2011 at 08:07

    @ALbertz Mate I really appreciate you posting lots of videos for future adam users like me and bringing out constructive criticism of adam and NotionInk.
    NotinInk has problems in some of the things and these points will really help them in future. As however good the product be, an efficient and expedient customer support enhance the faith of customers many folds.

    It would have been nice to see that “buffer” worked into our shipping date work for us. But I have to admit I’m enjoying the excitement of this pre-order for those that had to wait so much longer than us.

  776. Veeraraagavan said, on February 10, 2011 at 08:34

    @ Himanshu,
    Well, good question. This device is gonna be used anywhere – in different light conditions – unlike my LCD TV or home theatre or other immobile entertainment models. If you take your Pixel Qi with you on a picnic, or drive or walk or just out in your balcony and read – well I just said – that – you can do all this – only in the Pixel Qi model.

    As for the LCD, you can be happy only indoors, or in other enclosed areas with man made lights. Both models cannot and will not replace your dedicated entertainment systems, and what you actually lose is something, not everything.

    I would want a mobile convergence device, that can work anywhere, not one which works only indoors – meaning it is affecting the very mobility it is supposed to address. Because most of the times than not, I am gonna be reading something on my Adam, and I am fine with the current level of quality loss that comes with the Pixel Qi.

    The above is my personal opinion and the reason I don’t advice the screen choice to others – as it is definitely a personal preference.

  777. augustepotin said, on February 10, 2011 at 08:36

    Just bought mine, Pixel qi + 3G. Hopefully all will run smoothly!
    :)

    And I tried watching 720P and dvd quality videos – in Pixel Qi, the blacks are not good / existent, but a compromise I am ok with.

    Thanks for the positive comments!! With all the talk of sideloading and flashing the ROM just for updates, it unsettled me a bit. But I guess once it is all done, things should be a breeze to use!

    @Chebbinator no insider information, just looking at their current patterns. I am still in pre-order one and was listed for shipping on the 9th then 22nd, then 29th then 14th. I fully expect on the 16th to read on the blog that its been delayed. I don’t expect any emails because… well, its very difficult to email your customers.

    @suicideclown1 Have they really gone to China? Really? or is this one of those reality distortion things again.

    So far until my Pre-Order one actually shows up on my door step, I take everything they say with a massive grain of salt. It is still within my CC Dispute time limit, so I am ready to call up the CC company and get the charge reversed. In fact, i think the problems people are having with their credit cards to Notion Ink might be because of this. They are probably on the Credit Card Fraud watchlist. With the bad communication most people that wanted to cancel have done it that way.

    In other words Notion Ink is their own worst enemy.

    Thank you for ordering. Your credit card has been charged and the transaction was successful.—Persistence is the key. It took 16 tries, 3 account resets, a few calls from the credit card company about fraudulent activity, but I finally was able to order. And there was much rejoicing…oh happy day

  791. mksaint28 said, on February 10, 2011 at 09:06

    Ordered my Adam this morning… Can’t wait!!! I’m so pumped!

  792. Rajendra said, on February 10, 2011 at 09:09

    The problem is Genesis would still use ccavenue as payment gateway and I wouldn’t take the same pains as for adam itself to let my transactions go thru just .99$ ~ $10. So genesis may not be very successful unless the apps(bundle) are completely revolutionary and no alternative is available.

  793. Rajendra said, on February 10, 2011 at 09:11

    that’s really bad. some starving for links and some are receiving beyond their appetite.

  794. suicideclown1 said, on February 10, 2011 at 09:12

    This is probably why they registered as an LLC in Nevada. Can charge like a US company in future. But it also holds the liability as a US company… people can sue you more easily if you have a branch in the US than if you are in india only…

    i feel happy for you :-) atleast you dont need to endure the pain for even longer. i have not got the invite so far and i have given up on PO2. if i dont get PO2 invite, i will stop bothering about pre orders till it hit the store :-) i have waited so long for Adam and i am sure and wish adam all the success and so there is no question of me going the wrong way :-) worst thing is, one of my colleague that i convinced to consider adam got PO2 invite just by registering on one of the site. so you can easily guess what he wld ve commented at me :-(. hope adam will hit the stores soon, so that i dont need any invite to buy it :-)

    @Veera Detailed answer :). And I think you have made a right decision considering your usage.

  801. elmelao said, on February 10, 2011 at 09:38

    Some people here have said they bought a visa card, put the money they needed in it and used it. I think that worked for them.

  802. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 09:39

    I’m thinking they are again overwhelmed with orders. Maybe they can do expedited shipping or something like that. I wish I had an Adam already so perhaps I could test mine in similar conditions and give you something to compare with. I really think that a 1-800 is a must at this point.

  803. Rajendra said, on February 10, 2011 at 09:46

    There is a link to the store and a username/password in the mail. click on store link and login. Also there should be a change of mail id (profile page) option, so that shared links users can use their actual mail id instead of family members mail id (its a pain for them to pass on every email to exchanged user).

  804. Dennis said, on February 10, 2011 at 09:56

    @JD, it depends on what you do of course, but I just updated some of my apps (of which I had around 40) and my battery life went from 65% to 52% in less than 30 minutes. Just checking email and texting or reading you will get better.

  805. Dennis said, on February 10, 2011 at 09:58

    Hari, I paid Rs 6,684.75 in duty (to GATI) for the PQi 3G. Delivery in Mumbai.

  815. Amit Tambe said, on February 10, 2011 at 10:51

    No gcrv, I couldn’t resist sideloading some apks. The Eden version that came with the adam was very buggy. Had to update – the first one requires flashing of the device. Since then things have been better but some stuff is still buggy. The two major irritants are:

    1. Home page not loading fast enough; and
    2. Eden’s custom browser’s repeated unexpected shutdowns. I’m now using Firefox and it’s very good in comparison.

    Fortunately, so far all my issues are software related, so there should be no trouble fixing it. Frankly, I can’t wait for Honeycomb to launch on adam. I’m almost certain that is not scheduled for the major update on the 14th – I think it’s going to be the launch of Genesis. They may grant us indirect access to market through Genesis (I think).

    I will do a more through review soon.

  816. jaisinghdeep said, on February 10, 2011 at 10:52

    What other options are there to pay other than VISA? I was hoping for a mastercard option as well… I still don’t understand why NI can’t just use Paypal.

Can Greg and anyone else who seem to have more direct interaction with Rohan, get some attention to Albert’s case. For the tons of videos and bug reporting he has done, I guess NI should have been interacting directly with him. I am pretty confident that NI will honor the replacement/ repair etc. but as we all know, it will be in due course only.

    I shall mail to Greg or comment in NIfan for you Albert (if it has not already been done). The family can all shout out loud for our sucicideclown here… am sure Rohan will hear it then! cummon ppl!

    So, in Australia, Telstra uses mainly 850MHz UMTS, but also 2100MHz (shared with another network) so I’m assuming I’ll have to get the 850/1900 model and there isn’t a 850/2100 model?

  829. Rama Maganti said, on February 10, 2011 at 11:38

    @Rohan and team
    I haven’t received an invite yet. I am waiting for it patiently. I know you and your team are working very hard to send the invites out. Hope you succeed in sending them all in the two day window you set for yourselves.

  830. elmelao said, on February 10, 2011 at 11:41

    Nick, you have to tell your bank (or credit card) that you are about to purchase from an international company they may not know about. Once they clear CCAvenue, it should be fine. At least that seems to work for some people in this blog (reported).

    Personally, I’d be pissed of at pay pal as well (they charge money for their service!)

  831. Sid said, on February 10, 2011 at 11:44

    this has be one of my favorite unboxing video :)
    the clapping the woo hoo’s, can tell how much your friend wants it!!!

    Rs. 6684 in customs makes the adam 37k ($820). which puts the price way over the galaxy tab, the xoom and as much as the ipad 32 GB + 3G. a little sad & very far from the one price aim of NI but not a big deal.

    Also Amit, how did you pay GATI? did they have an option to pay online or did you pay them by cheque/cash on delivery?

  832. elmelao said, on February 10, 2011 at 11:45

    there is also a link, which I didn’t receive. I did get the PW.

    Damn, don think am included in the second pre order list too. . think am gonna buy ADAM 2 once in for all when the whole process is much less complicated than this!

  835. Sid said, on February 10, 2011 at 11:49

    i vote paypal, the only problem in india we’re no longer allowed to use paypal for transactions over $500 because of RBI rules. sometimes i feel we’re taking giant steps back instead of forward :(
    anyway, there’s always google checkout, I really like that, use it all the time for all sorts of stuff.

    Beacuse NI has a valid e-mail linked to that order, they should know who is doiing that. also, they can stop the selling. Who ever buys it must really stupid.

  841. Amit Tambe said, on February 10, 2011 at 12:19

    @Sid – Thanks.

    I paid GATI in cash. I don’t know if they have other options but I figured that cash was the fastest way to make sure that I get the adam.

  842. elmelao said, on February 10, 2011 at 12:20

    In this post Rohan says NI is trying to have Master Card to come to terms with them.

    AMEX and VISA work well with CCAvenue.

    But, like Rohan says: call you orpvider (card-bank) ahead of time to ensure they clear international purchase (CCAvenue in this case)

  843. elmelao said, on February 10, 2011 at 12:21

  845. Doja said, on February 10, 2011 at 12:26

    For those having problems with their banks stopping transactions or those calling ahead before making this awesome purchase. You will need to tell them that you’re making a purchase in India from NotionInk through CC avenue.
    The reason some people are still getting declined by their banks is simply because even though you’ve told them you’re making an international transaction through CC, it gets flagged up by the system as NotionInk India. (Insider info) ;)
    Good luck to all!

  853. gcrv said, on February 10, 2011 at 12:47

    Give them a break tour Adam us working. The same people in customer support will be handling the pre-order.I don’t think the will be able to respond next 5 days.
    Most likely your problem is due to software issues with some process looking for 3G connection.
    Writing the same issue again and again will just prompt more people to query NI and will actually reduce your chances of getting a faster response
    I don’t see any emergency in your issue. If battery is defective and needs replacement same can be dealt with even a week or two from now.Thanks for your excellent videos.

    Either you trust NI or you don’t. Orders marajae the lifeblood for NI. If they don’t grow there will be no NI nor any support. Those two guys who wanted to return their Adam tried to cry wolf in just 2-3 days got them publicity all over the web but nothing that they hoped for. Greg with his calm and mature attitude not only got help from NI but is in position to help others. Making fodder for the blogs is a sure fire way to rile up somebody you are interacting with. No matter how right your are you have a choice of either getting your way or tarring the other party with feathers. You will not be able to get both. I hope this does not offend you. I mean it in the most friendliest way.

  869. karen said, on February 10, 2011 at 13:19

    Asked boeltwit if he still has his one for you to use, Zaghir.

  870. Andromeda said, on February 10, 2011 at 13:22

    Yeah it was. Although at one point it said I have to contact some local reseller to verify the purchase is okay which was a bit weird. But it was full of anticipation and joy. Too bad it was a dream though – I was absolutely sure an invite would be in my inbox this morning. :)

    I’ll let you know if I need an invite – got a tweet from karen to send her my e-mail address :)

  871. RoryH said, on February 10, 2011 at 13:23

    What bothers me most about this is that they’ve put a dollar value on the preorder invite which will be sold to the highest bidder while many loyal people here on this blog are still waiting (very patiently I might add).

  872. Andromeda said, on February 10, 2011 at 13:24

    I’ve tweeted you my address :)

  873. Aravind said, on February 10, 2011 at 13:26

    nothing so far… c’mon c’mon c’mon!

  874. elmelao said, on February 10, 2011 at 13:27

    @Doja
    I tried that link, and it says Invalid Username or Password. So, I think, 1: the link is not good, or 2: the PW I got from Notion ink is not good anymore. That is why I wrote to NI and explaned to them. I hope I get either a link or a new PW.

  875. elmelao said, on February 10, 2011 at 13:34

    OK, too late now. Good night now.

  876. Himanshu jain said, on February 10, 2011 at 13:39

    Okai So I am reserving mine for you. Will send you in the night in case you don’t get one . ANd indeed This blog is awesome :)

  877. Amit Tambe said, on February 10, 2011 at 13:43

    @Jaisinghdeep, you don’t have a choice. If your card is issued in India, you will be charged the rupee amount. NI pre-fixes the exchange rate with a huge buffer (10% or so!).

  878. taleboldi said, on February 10, 2011 at 13:44

    still no link for me …

    why ???

  879. hemanth147 said, on February 10, 2011 at 13:47

    I was able to order from US. LCD WIFI 3G model. 475.33 $ inclusive of shipping. Got it in the first try it self. \m/

    – Adam Hemanth :D

  880. karen said, on February 10, 2011 at 13:58

    Ok, it’s a done deal!
    Payment went through very smooth, with a lil help from a friends AmEx card :)
    Have my orderno. and my LCD/3G Adam will be shipped Feb 25-Mrch 10.

    And telling you all, i’ll enjoy every minute of The Next Big Waiting…

  881. boeltwit said, on February 10, 2011 at 14:12

    Zagir,

    I heard from Karen that you have no invitation? I can send you mine I have one and also a Adam is coming, when you want it give me your email address. (write it else your going in moderation)

    Namaste, Bert

  882. prudento said, on February 10, 2011 at 14:17

    Shame , still no preorder mail, I was in the first preorder list but couldn’t use it because no Mastercard avalable. Ready with visa option this time but no email.

  883. bedta said, on February 10, 2011 at 14:24

    finally
    i ordered one
    ship date is between 25 feb and 10 march

  884. karen said, on February 10, 2011 at 14:29

    And i’ll surely enjoy every minute of The Bog Waiting now, Doja.
    Wow! Still can’t believe it.
    What a rush…
    Especially knowing Zaghir and Andromeda will be betaken care for too.

    OK, down to earth again… Closets and fridge are empty, need to do some shopping.

  885. Doja said, on February 10, 2011 at 14:37

    Good for you. I feel a bit relieved now and can’t wait to compare the PQi to the LCD.
    I still get a rush everytime I check the order status page.
    I’m sure I can vouch for all when I say we will look after each other.
    Out shopping at the moment :)
    @ Prudento: I trust NI will not leave you out. If you read Rohan’s post carefully it says they are rolling out the emails over a period of time and ALL the variants are still there ;)

  886. sassoonss said, on February 10, 2011 at 14:41

    I am so confused whether I should go in for PixelQi or normal LCD screen.

    I am reading blog that battery life for LCD is far less that Pixel qi and that a drawback as I don’t want with heavy usage the adam to die out in 5 hours or so

    On the other hand I am reading issues with Pixel Qi with people saying about washed out colors and certain viewing angle issues.

    I think I will be using it mostly inside but I think I will also be using it outside mostly for GPS or car travel for kids and all

    Difficult decision

    I wish some one could help me decide.

  887. mikkelpetersen said, on February 10, 2011 at 14:46

    Hey Greg :)
    I am a big fan of your blog and your videos helped me a lot on which model I should order. I ordered the LCD+3g model before I read your comment. I figured that I would mostly use my Adam to videos, music, games and reading inside in a class room. So the LCD screen would fit my needs better then the Qi. But thanks a lot for taking your time to answer my question :D And btw, I think I would be very satisfied no matter what model I got ;)

    – Mikkel Petersen

  888. Rama Maganti said, on February 10, 2011 at 15:00

    @Himanshu
    Thanks for asking. No! I haven’t received the link yet. I am still waiting patiently. As a last resort I will ask your help. I am on gmail with a dot between the two names on display. If you could kindly send the link, I promise I will use it only if I don’t get a link until tomorrow evening.

  889. boeltwit said, on February 10, 2011 at 15:03

    zaghir,

    When you need my invitation, send me you email in written form, else you wil get a moderation with it.
    You also may send me a mail: bert.boelema at gmail dot com

    Namaste, Bert

  890. Burt O' Stage said, on February 10, 2011 at 15:23

    YAAAAY!

    I did it!

    A friend of mine assisted me with his VISA Card :)

    Hopefully naught but 30 days left in max…

    But does anyone of you also experience issues with the “Check Pre-Order Status”? It kees telling me that I should enter correct order number – (which I certainly did)

  891. Mistry said, on February 10, 2011 at 15:32

    My adam hasn’t shipped. Is it Feb 14th yet? Someone wake me up on time to grab the package.

  892. Ravi said, on February 10, 2011 at 15:33

    @Lavpius …. If it is couple of years.. you may buy Adam 2 :-P

  893. Mehdi said, on February 10, 2011 at 15:42

    Yep Burt, I do. I can only access to information about my order using the link “http://store.notionink.com/”.

  894. kr33cher said, on February 10, 2011 at 16:00

    test: can I post again ?

  895. Burt O' Stage said, on February 10, 2011 at 16:00

    hmmmm…

    Well – ’till now that works for me. I got my estimated shipping date and shall furthermore try to check my impatience ;)

    Perhaps this is due to a cyclic databank refresh and will work sometimes later…

  896. kr33cher said, on February 10, 2011 at 16:01

    Fantastic!!! Thanks again guys! Hope to be getting my link soon, getting a bit worried, but was confirmed twice that I was on the list. :)

    Congrats to all who already got to order !!!

  897. Mehdi said, on February 10, 2011 at 16:05

    I guess we should wait till PO2 is ended, then we’ll probably have access to our order status (and if not I guess NI will have time to solve the problem then). I don’t mind waiting now that I managed to order mine :-).

  898. Mehdi said, on February 10, 2011 at 16:07

    Well thank you ! And congrats to you for being on the list and a soon-to-be owner of an ADAM :-).

    i can’t stand the waiting but i guess it’s the only fair way, last time i got an e-mail but all the PQi screen ones were sold out…

    so hoping for an e-mail soonish…

    greetings from the Netherlands,
    Robin

  901. niranjanrao said, on February 10, 2011 at 16:09

    I think by this time…all emails in HUGE list are sent out….can anyone send me order email link if u are not purchasing.. i am desperately refreshing my inbox and w8ing fr email from Notion ink
    I am member of notion addicts,notioninkfan and commented lot of times on this blog
    i don’t know how my address missed from order list
    My email : “niranjanrao.j@gmail.com”

  902. zaghir said, on February 10, 2011 at 16:09

    Looks like i cant log in to comment on the last page? Is there something wrong with wordpress? i can post on this page (page 6) but not the last?
    Still waiting for e-mail.

  903. zaghir said, on February 10, 2011 at 16:15

    @boeltwit
    Still waiting for my e-mail, Himanshu is so kind that he will give me his invite later if Rohan somehow forgot me. So you can give your to someone else in the family.I will use Himanshu’s invite.
    This blog is “legen… wait for it…… dary” :)

  904. robinmdh said, on February 10, 2011 at 16:19

    wondering the same myself, was on the list last time though….

  905. suhaspatel84 said, on February 10, 2011 at 16:25

  907. gattacarna said, on February 10, 2011 at 16:31

    Hmmmm…getting a little peeved. We’ve got slightly around 19 hours until the end of the email list…and yet no email in my inbox- ANY of my inboxes (gmail, DET, live.com or secondary gmail). Not so much as a spam result. Does anyone know whether or not they’ve sold out of Pixel Qi 3Gs? Being a student, LCD simply is /not/ an option (which means that everything bar this tablet is out). Also, I commented here a while back (during the whole 9th december debacle), the comment is still there, yet the account doesn’t exist (had to recreate it). Does WordPress have an expiry on accounts or something? Did it have a different type of login for commenting?

    Also, if the account /used/ to exist, would Notion Ink send an email to the email account attached to it, or would it be impossible for them to know said address (since the profile page no longer existed)?

  908. pk said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:08

    i am on the same boat. so far not got any invite or any email. waiting patiently :-)

  909. Peter said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:14

    @ Rohan, I hope you do not forget the people that have been postponed to February 14, we are still waiting for our ADAM, when will they be delivered.

  910. pk said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:15

    you are not alone dude!! we should form an association of ignored family members :-D

  911. gattacarna said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:25

    Oops, drop the ‘slightly’. Also, I don’t think that’s a correct estimate anyway :/. Just noticed it said ‘PM’, not AM, as well as a vague memory that it’s 9 am 9th feb to 9 am 11 feb. Or is that just caffeine addling my memory?

  912. techlemonade said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:26

    @Zaghir – I hear that you have 2 invites. Is it possible you could spare one for me?

  913. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:27

    Yay KAREN! Isn’t it a GREAT feeling! Congrats! Like I said before, when you get your Adam, I think we’d all like to share your unboxing experience!

  914. Rama Maganti said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:28

    Agreed PK.

  915. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:32

    Zaghir! We are all pullin’ for you! I know the angst! That email is on it’s way I can feel it! :) Make sure you have your credit card etc. in order! I made the mistake originally to just have an agent notate my account but I had to call a second time to talk to someone in autorization!

  916. zaghir said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:32

    @techlemonade
    At the moment i don’t have any invites, just friends helping. I’m getting Himanshu’s invite if I don’t get a email from Rohan and team before tonight. Boeltwit was so kind to offer his invite to, so I guess you should talk to him and not me.
    Good luck, there are still a few hours before the deadline is over, so I’m just trying to be patient (Even though it’s almost impossible, worried that I’m forgotten, and that the PQ will be sold out)

  917. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:33

    I hope they can manage to ship them out by tomorrow for you guys, if not, Monday is right around the corner!

  919. boeltwit said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:36

    OK first delay….

    I ordered as a tester, just before PO2 and the delivery should be at 15 Feb. Now they have changed my password (my second invitation is not working anymore) and when I log in at “http://store.notionink.com/status.php” I see: Estimated Shipping Date 25th February to 10th March 2011, so 10 days later maybe, OK no problem…. but its now the first delay….

    Namaste, Bert

    @Peter indeed, and i also wonder what this actually means…

    “We are glad to inform you that the management has decided to include a special gift with your shipment.
    However, we currently do not have further details about this gift. You will be contacted about the same at a date that is closer to your shipping date.”

    Probably like the “Mystery feature” included… still a mystery.. lol

    I sound a bit bitter cause I am after the treatment received.

  922. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:37

    @suicideclown

    Any news?

    @all with PQ adams already in your possession:

    One of our friends is having battery issues and limited to about 4 hours, could you please try to verify if it’s just his issue or is Adam’s battery life that much shorter than advertised. He’s usage was 4 hours of word processing with medium brightness and peripheral keyboard. (Were bluetooth, wifi, 3g antennas on?)

  923. zaghir said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:38

    @Luis Flores
    I don’t think there will be any problems with the credit card, but I think i might have to call my bank today anyway.
    Thanks for all the support.

  924. Suresh said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:43

    @Talung,

    I am not sure about the gift. Since NI started the Pre Order2, I think no one will be concentrating on the gift now!

    However I am wondering if they start shipping before the 14th. The delay email mentioned that the ship date is Feb 14th with buffer included.

  925. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:43

    Bert,

    Hopefully it’s just a system mistake, those pages have been buggy from the get go. I hope Rohan is still reading. Along with Albert not getting proper support this can be another big damage in trust for Rohan and NI. Albert is already “warning” others not to get so excited about the pre-order if Customer Service isn’t working well yet.

    Man, I really think a lot of these communication issues could be eased with a Forum, because then Rohan et al could prioritize their comment reading to people with issues and concerns and not have to sift through other posts that aren’t so urgent!

  926. virroncho said, on February 10, 2011 at 17:43

    hello there.
    Do you know if there is any kind of list where check if i’m luky or not.
    I’m not member of any notion ink group but i’m waiting for Adam since february last year.
    I didn’t post so much and i’m afraid i’m not going to be afortunately as it happends in pre-order 1.
    Rohan I suposse you are not going to read that, but if you do, please let as know through a textbox and button if we are luky or not.
    thank’s in advance

    Cons: Have to wait for 10 more days :( :(

    so ever since Slashgear published that article about Notion Ink Adam’s poor battery life, i went ahead and did a little time lapse video trying to see how quickly the battery drained while playing back a video clip.

    The video is composed of two parts, showing a 1 hr battery drain with a playback of a media video. The video being played is a 1080p divx avi file straight from the SDCARD2 directory. There are two drains done — one in Pixel Qi Color and the other is B/W mode both at 50% brightness, 50% Sound Volume, Wifi – OFF, Bluetooth – OFF, GPS – OFF, Sync – OFF. MVideoPlayer was used as the playback device.

    Please view the video to see final result!

  947. zaghir said, on February 10, 2011 at 18:30

    Looks good :)

  948. dwarf4242 said, on February 10, 2011 at 18:30

    Veeraraagavan:
    I agree completely with your analysis of the Pixel Qi. I ordered the same model because I wish to go outside and sit on the bridge over our creek and enjoy nature while still being connected to my friends in the greater outside world. This will be the only machine I know of that will allow me to do that and return to my cave at work still using the same machine.
    As you said, it really depends upon how you wish to use the machine. YMMV ;-)
    Waiting is…

  949. Rama Maganti said, on February 10, 2011 at 18:30

  950. robinmdh said, on February 10, 2011 at 18:40

    last round of pre orders i got an invite and all I did was post here, so the e-mail address wordpress has on you is probably accessible to the blog writer…

    not that that has helped me now, no e-mail in sight form here :(

  951. Sid said, on February 10, 2011 at 18:43

    looks like Amit paid 22 % (Rs. 6684) for the adam in duties (PQ, 3G)
    12 % would have made it Rs. 3600.. wonder if GATI’s taking a cut.
    Guys when the delivery guys show up make sure you take a proper receipt for the cutoms duty & question them for any amount over 3600.

  952. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 18:45

    Quick question:

    So I encouraged, ok STRONGLY encouraged her (read: vehemently insisted), to comment. I told her that a few people here are not techies and not all comments are tech related, many even business related. So she accepted (read: caved to get me off her back) and she’s posted twice and gone into moderation. There are no links, nor offensive terms. I’m guessing that new comment flow is limited for now. Is there anyway way to get past moderation?

    I really hope she can get an invite. She kept asking yesterday if I had been able to order both! Thanks for the help mates!

  953. angrybrain said, on February 10, 2011 at 18:47

    When will be 3-rd pre-order? I am not have enough money at the moment…
    When will Adam be in free sale but not via the Internet?

  954. Sid said, on February 10, 2011 at 18:49

    correction: indians can’t pay more than $500 in a single transaction. CC avenue guys are charging way too much for the currency conversion because of the monopoly they have for orders.
    I should have got my Adam shipped to my US address and got someone to get it from there. no customs, to delays, cheaper price… alas the perils of living in Bangalore!

  955. Rajendra said, on February 10, 2011 at 18:51

    No email so far, desperately waiting for one. Is there a blacklist where I was put st the top ;(

  956. kr33cher said, on February 10, 2011 at 18:55

    Don’t panic yet! I’m waiting too (and getting nervous, lol) . But there is still tomorrow for us!

  957. Rajendra said, on February 10, 2011 at 18:55

    I think they are sending in alphabetical order. My I’d starts with ‘r’ so if I get I will be one of the last ones to get(when no Adam is left for purchase).
    I think they are sending in batches to reduce load on their servers (controlled sale).

  958. zaghir said, on February 10, 2011 at 18:57

    Mine starts with z, and i have not got mine.
    Can anyone confirm this theory?

  959. nrnw said, on February 10, 2011 at 19:02

    ** Updated List ** Will try to update this every hour or two, hopefully everyone will be able to order. If we have some names left after the closure of the pre-order window, we will ensure this list reaches NI so that something can be worked out !! Until then, add your name if you have been missed out and offer your links if you have a spare one **

    In absence of Biswajit saha, to put everything in the right perspective, here’s a nice quote for you:

    “To lose patience is to lose the battle.”
    – Mahatma Gandhi

    I’m having mixed feelings, really relieved i was given the chance to order, and feeling bad about friends here still waiting.
    Please, give NI the chance to do the right thing.
    Even if you don’t receive any mail within 17 hours, you can leave your personal info after clicking the link in the post from Rohan.
    As far as i know all variants are still available.

    I’m confident all work out fine for all of us.

  961. Devadatta said, on February 10, 2011 at 19:03

    patiently waiting for the LINK..
    the wait is killing me….
    Only if i had been this patient for somebody…… ;)

  962. kr33cher said, on February 10, 2011 at 19:05

    We all have to go through “awaiting moderation”. :) It’s because everybody is manually approved to prevent spam. I’ve learned about this thanks to Greg from notioninkfan, who was nice enough to write a blog about it -> “www.notioninkfan.com/2011/01/why-some-people-cant-comment-on-notion.html”

    So don’t worry, tell her to keep on trying and eventually she will get moderated. I hope she immediately got a wordpress account though. I had to re-register because I initially just picked a nick and used my email addres without an account and recently found out I couldn’t post that way anymore. Had to get re-moderated with this nick since my other one was already taken on wordpress. But I’m back now. ;)

    Anyway, if she posted on here before the 22nd january, I guess it should be ok for the pre-order 2 thing. You could always try mailing support at notionink if you’re unsure. So far they’ve always responded back to me and I’m quite happy with support so far. :) (just be sure to have a few days of patience when you mail! they’re probably getting TONS of mails right about now :) )

  963. dwarf4242 said, on February 10, 2011 at 19:06

    It took several posting that were tagged “awaiting moderation” before my postings to this blog began to simply appear in the blog where expected. I suggest keeping the tone of your postings “civil” and positive, but other than that, just keep replying to postings that are on track with what you also have to say.
    It is also valuable to be a registered user on “wordpress.com”, you don’t have to set up your own blog, but can choose to only set up a user account. This will cost nothing, where setting up your own blog will have a monthly fee.
    Persistance, is the key. Just keep trying and eventually you will become recognized as a normal poster to the blog.
    It also takes some time after that before you get on the list for pre-orders. Also, emailing one of the contact addresses (found on notionink.com) will get you into the system.
    Best of luck.
    Waiting is…

  965. kr33cher said, on February 10, 2011 at 19:13

    What does this list mean ? :)

    I’m on there, but haven’t gotten my link yet, hope tomorrow will be the day. ;)

  966. nrnw said, on February 10, 2011 at 19:23

    I started this list primarily to ensure that spare links can be distributed efficiently within the family; hopefully by 11:55 IST on 11-Feb, there will be no on this list; if there is, they will register on the link that Rohan opens up plus we can request Greg or someone to get this list across to NI and then hope for the best…

  967. nramprabhu said, on February 10, 2011 at 19:28

    Still waiting , No link yet ……

    Missed out on Pre Order 1 , because of MC issue.

    Hope get the link…

    Anybody ready to spare a link ?

    Has everyone received it?

  969. zaghir said, on February 10, 2011 at 19:36

    No, not yet. A lot of people are still waiting (Including me)

  970. Gabriele Cappelletti said, on February 10, 2011 at 19:40

    Ty for answering…
    Looks like we’re all on the same boat,which makes the waiting a bit more beareable :-)

  971. Rajendra said, on February 10, 2011 at 19:40

    Even I haven’t received one ;( starting with ‘r’

  972. mki7680 said, on February 10, 2011 at 19:43

    I think their pre-order support team is overwhelmed. Emailed them last weekend to see if i could change my order from Pixel Qi/wifi to LCD/wifi. One day later the reply was too late to change order (ship date is Feb.14), so I emailed back to cancel my order. 4 days later I receive an email that my order was changed and i would receive a credit for the difference. I had to email back immediately to ignore my email to cancel my order. At this point I just want an adam and I hope I don’t regret not getting the Pixel Qi model. Maybe I should have ordered one of each but I don’t know if they would have allowed me to do that. I confirmed my order change by checking on my pre-order status.

  973. shritosh said, on February 10, 2011 at 19:47

    When my dad finds out that i have to pay 6400 extra as for customs god only knows what will happen.
    He asked me why i am spending 30k on a tablet if i can get a laptop by adding some more!

  977. mki7680 said, on February 10, 2011 at 19:56

    They finally replied 4 days later…..now they have changed my order after telling me they couldn’t. Hope they don’t cancel my order now. Go figure. Maybe you will get an email today.

  978. Himanshu jain said, on February 10, 2011 at 19:57

    I think i have to take advantage of you now Himanshu, need to leave my computer for today. Can you e-mail me the invite? If i get one later i will send it to the next on the list that need invite.

  983. boeltwit said, on February 10, 2011 at 20:12

    Can you add me too? I didn’t get one (although I have used a shared invite from this family !)

  994. aajeffbrown said, on February 10, 2011 at 20:36

    Wow I really appreciate the honesty of this posting about what can and should be expected durring the ordering process.

    The selling to your biggest fans first was a cool idea but, after a month it’s gotten a bit old. Just make as many as you can and sell them. I don’t get how this batching and constant sold out status can be a good thing? Get the tablet to market, not just geek market but the whole market!

  995. rahul bhaskaran said, on February 10, 2011 at 20:41

    Whoa!

    I received a second invitation!

    (I have been registered twice with wordpress, I remember now…)

    Okay… give me some time to work out a applicable way to offer this one to somebody in a semi-fair manure :) Perhaps a Rohanesque riddle or something :)

    I’m open for suggestions.

    By the way – If the “alphabetical order” is correct, we’re now at the letter “s”

  997. tntpop said, on February 10, 2011 at 20:42

    received a mail to place an order…
    maybe, then … maybe not
    I’m a bit tight at the moment.

    Please, Rohan, at what date will the payment be done? At order time or at shipment, or else?

  998. karen said, on February 10, 2011 at 20:42

    Rajendra, check your yahoo mail?

  999. Stan said, on February 10, 2011 at 20:46

    I had just posted that I had not received the invite email, when a few minutes later I got the order email – YAHOO!!!! (Arrived at 15:03 GMT)

    I’ve now ordered my PQi – WiFi only

    Feb 25th to 10th March estimated delivery

  1000. Matthew Reeves said, on February 10, 2011 at 20:46

    LCD wifi sold out!!!!

  1001. Burt O' Stage said, on February 10, 2011 at 20:48

    Congrats – this is comment No 1000

  1002. rtm7791 said, on February 10, 2011 at 20:48

    Ok someone sold their link on ebay (sleazy), while many of us are still waiting for our emails (myself included). Others have received more than 1, and are sharing (thank you to those who are keeping it in the family). Question who has recently received an email link, and when did you get it?

  1003. chaipau said, on February 10, 2011 at 20:50

    I think the alphabetical order is true. As most in ‘rnrw’s list seems to have a handle that its in the later set of alphabets! Mine is ‘t’ and I have just received one invite. SImilarly someone with ‘s’ just said they received one now!

    All variants are available even now! So patience my friends!

  1004. Rama Maganti said, on February 10, 2011 at 20:52

    Hi All
    I got the e-mail at 3.03 pm (GMT). I completed the order and am typing this message at 3.14 pm (GMT). The order process was absolutely painless. I ordered like my friends Biswajit, Wally West, Himanshu and others a LCD+3G+Wi-fi. I am done with the ordering process and now the long wait begins. I hope I made the right choice. During pre-order 1 I wanted to order Pixel Qi but it ran out of STOCK, but after reviewing all the videos on the internet and Greg’s recommendation, I chose the LCD variant. I hope I made the right choice here. If not, I will get Adam 2 next year with Pixel Qi. Thanks all of you who volunteered to help me incase I didn’t get my link. Thanks Rohan and everyone at NI. It was a pleasure ordering adam and I hope the pleasure will only increase after getting mine. I didn’t check the shipping date. It will come when it comes.

    Best luck to others who haven’t got their invite. Patience! is the mantra.

  1010. KS said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:00

    I wonder what the algorithm NI is using to pick the addresses to send invites to, looks like.
    Maybe some combo of number of replies, earliest date posted, most recent, length, +or- impact of each post, number of emoticons etc. number of spelling mistakes, use of !!!!! marks, misued or misplaced commas, if someone actually replies to your reply, how well or often you plead to get an invite…
    might be fun to work on

    please don’t forget to reply to this
    don’t want to miss out on an invite to PO-2
    Opps !!!!!!!!! almost forgot ;)

  1011. michimonk said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:01

    I really think they should work and Honeycomb and Genesis first. A tablet without any marketplace is not very good for the non geek people.

    Anyways you could and you will be able to order even if you are not a fan. But this is still preorder it’s not official released.

    Michi

  1012. nrnw said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:01

    YES!!! FINALLY!!!

    THE INVITE:
    I was about to use the invite kindly shared by zennaro, but just thought of checking my yahoo mail one more time and there it was – my own freaking invite…

    THE TRANSACTION:
    wanted to be sure so went to store.yahoo.com and gave my email id and clicked on “forgot password”. Within 2 seconds i got a new password. Logged in and the transaction was one of the best ever – seriously, i called amex prior to the transaction and they did not take more than 1 second to tell me to go ahead and the transaction was successful in the very first attempt. A order confirmation and delivery estimate (25 Feb – 10 Mar) email came within seconds. Notion Ink has learnt its lessons very well from PO1 and this is freaking efficient and smooth…

    One thing though: I wanted the entry level (LCD Wifi) but that is sold out now, so if you want LCD, you will need to order Wifi + 3G

    I have returned the invite to zennaro as it is rightfully hers to distribute

  1013. Burt O' Stage said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:07

    “absolutely painless”? Hm – my VISA-trouble aside (which had not been NI’s doing) I found it… disturbing how the data entered in the NI form showed up in the CC avenue form. Garbled the phone number… hickupping names…

    And given the restriciton on two payment pathways it is also a little weird not to distinguish between “user” and “cardholder” in the NI form…

    Aside from subtle stuff like mandatory entering province or state which in some countries is quite meaningless (what about Monaco or Andorra, for example?)

    But hey! Let’s not be picky – eventually it worked :)

  1014. Doja said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:08

    @nrnw: I have nothing against this list of have nots and spares that is being compiled but for once could we just read/follow instructions.
    It’s clearly stated in the post that the links are slowly being sent out and I’m sure the fact that we have fewer people screaming no po2 link shows that.
    A few people and Karen would lay testament to the fact that there is light at the end of this preoreder tunnel.
    We as a collective complained in Dec2010 that the servers kept crashing and for Rohan to roll out the links in a smarter way. Well guess what… He did just that and typical of us …we complain again. That’s probably why emails are not being replied because they are overwhelmed by the same emails from loads of people over and over and over again.
    The window for sending out links is still open and all the variants are still available so in the worst case scenario there will be the link in the post after 11pmIST tomorrow.
    I understand why you’re doing it but let’s trust NI to do what they set out to do. :)

  1015. lillituth said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:10

    you can put me on the list too

  1016. pk said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:12

    YAHOOOOO!! GOT THE PREORDER INVITE AND ORDERED!!!!! looks like i am on second batch. LCD 3G!! my order ends with -2!! i called BOFA before making the order and they told me that everything is set but still they declined it. then i called them again and while holding them on call made another attempt and this time it went thru!! looks like all the models are still available!!

  1017. stevesilk51 said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:15

    I have just received an invite to order an Adam. This is puzzling as I am waiting for my first Adam to be shipped on the 14th.

    Seems a little unfair on those who want an invite but have not received one don’t you think?

  1037. perpetualrabbit said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:34

    Still no options for me to pay than visa or american express. I have mastercard or paypal. Why not at least Paypal if mastercard is being difficult.

    Damn it, I really wanted to order now. pixelqi+wifi+3G, non-european version.

    Please Rohan, can you reserve one until this payment issue is solved? Mastercard an paypal is what you promised.

  1038. nrnw said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:35

    no seriously, i tried twice and got a message like “the variant you are trying to order cannot be configured” and i was just using the pre-selected option (LCD + Wifi) for 375..maybe i was destined to get the 3G as well…i hope everyone else gets all possible variants out there…personally, no regrets :-)

  1039. Paul Schoe said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:36

  1041. pk said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:40

    i have also received my link and successfully placed the order. the order process was excellent. BOFA messed it up a bit but when i called them the second time everything went smooth. Please remove my name. Also read that Rama also got his link. only thing is my order is on batch 2 that means subjected to more delay :-) but i am now not bothered much about the future delays. i am hoping Rohan will take care of po2 deliveries without much delays :-D

  1042. Himanshu jain said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:42

    @gamestill : Thank you; I will keep that in mind about mtnl 3G. Do let me know if you have good network(software ind) in delhi or mumbai lolz :) Maybe I can get a good job there after 2 years. Otherwise I am headed B’lore or Kochi I guess :)

  1045. tntpop said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:46

    I confirm… no LCD Wifi

  1046. karen said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:47

    Yippy!
    Gratulerer!

  1047. RaptorX said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:51

    Got my preorder email :) (in spam folder, ha! :D)
    Thank you Notion Ink! :)

  1048. borismedia said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:53

    I just received an e-mail. As I ordered in 1.5, I don’t need it. Does anyone still need an order link?

  1049. borismedia said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:54

    e-mail me at nll083t at gmail dot com

  1050. Neo said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:54

    luckily Honeycomb will have market support, so you will be able to get all those apps when it is released (without rooting your Adam)…in the meantime, I would assume that Genesis will be launching soon…

  1051. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:54

    I hope the LCD Wifi 3G don’t sell out! I really want to get it from my sister, but I also want to respect the people that have been commenting before asking for an extra invite. She hasn’t gotten through moderation yet! :(

  1052. taleboldi said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:55

    I don’t have recieved any link yet, but if I put the e-mail I used here in “forgot password” field the system seems to rocognize it.

    But I still don’t have any invitation … sigh …

  1053. Neo said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:57

    *happy* finally got the email and just successfully ordered..after the first preorder I was feeling a bit left out :)

  1054. Paul Schoe said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:58

    In a couple of days, I can hold my Adam :-) :-) :-)

    I will upgrade to PQ though to increase battery life.

  1055. oldbushie said, on February 10, 2011 at 21:58

    I got mine ordered! I didn’t have any problems with getting my friend’s help and using his Amex. I ended up getting a PixelQi+Wifi because the LCD+Wifi is sold out. Which is fine, because I was just on the fence anyways.

  1056. groundedboy said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:01

    I GOT MY LINK….WOOOOOOOOOOO, nothing will ever be the same..lmao

    TY notion ink.

  1057. rbrt86 said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:02

    recieved the pre-order link for the second time since I got it a couple of months ago for the first pre-order as well

    Back then I couldn’t order the adam because I only have mastercard and guess what
    After all the promises that Mastercard would be available now, it appears to be a lie

    Thanks a lot Notion Ink for wasting my time

  1058. nrnw said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:02

    with the new deluge of PO emails, i agree and rest my case…look, it takes a lot to start believing again, but NI has really done it…credit to them for a very smooth process this time :-)
    Now starts the next phase of wait and for me it is longer as i need a colleague to bring it to me in Brazil :-)

  1059. boeltwit said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:03

    @Himanshu,

    Lol! the system is a bit laggy, now my shipment is again:
    Estimated Shipping Date 15th February 2011 :roll:

    OK All, we are still in the start and test phase from NI :shock:

    But… :D

  1060. Paul Schoe said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:03

    @gotthumbs & themave: That is one of the reasons why i am more comfortable buying from Notion Ink then from the other manufacturers. The other manufacturers see themselves more has hardware producers, Notion Ink wants to give the best tool and will therefore be more active in proviiding upgrades of both Android and of their own Apps.

    So while other tablets run the risk of becoming outdated because their manufacturer doesn’t upgrade to newer versions of Android (see the phone market), our Adam will get better and better over time.

  1061. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:05

    Thank goodness! That is awesome! How many days after that will you be getting your Adam? I’m looking forward to your reception of the Adam!

  1062. adhyayanam said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:08

    So this morning I was F5’ing the blogs, hitting notioninkfan, addicts, hacks, news sites on adam, and finally went to my inbox. It took me a few minutes to realize I have an invite sitting there. Yipppeeee! What transpired for 10mins from that point on is just a blur. I do remember being ecstatic, and praying hard at some point for the transaction to go through. But successfully ordered one…PQi wifi+3G. Can be calmer and more patient here on :) Received the e-mail at 9:05am CST and was able to complete everything by 9:15am. The key was letting my bank (BofA) know yesterday about CCAvenue’s impending transaction.
    All indications are that the invites are being sent alphabetically.

    I got my order email at 15:03 feed my boss a line about having to go home early. Left and gave my bikes throttle some stick, got stopped for speeding which I said sorry for and Thankyou to the nice traffic officer that gave me a ticket. But I don’t care as once home I placed my order with no problems.
    It’s been a long year waiting but it seems all worth it now, can’t wait to get my hands on MY ADAM. :)

  1065. tntpop said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:13

    I said that I’d go for the Pixel QI or nothing, that is a major point of this tablet
    The screen technology of the PQI is far better than any “retina power drain”… ;)

  1066. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:16

    NO WAY! He probably would have sent you to jail, but it would have been awesome if you could have taken a picture of him!

  1067. Shafi said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:20

    Thanks a Lot!!
    Finally got my link and ordered one with PQI…. Thanks a Lot once again :)

  1068. taleboldi said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:22

    Well, if someone from the support group would be very kind to send an invitation to
    taleboldi AT gmail DOT com , I would be very grateful.

    Thank you in advance.

  1069. suicideclown1 said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:23

    Your stats are wrong. 6% of the battery cannot be use (will auto shutoff). I made this mistake too. 11% used per hour means 100%-6%= 94%/11%= 8.5 hours. However, I made another mistake that you didnt test. I origionally did the same thing as you, test based on averages. Then I did it from full charge to auto shutdown and I got a different result. on averages I got 6 hours out of my battery. When I actually used it from charge to nothing. I only got 4 hours…

  1070. karen said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:24

  1077. suicideclown1 said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:32

    I just checked all the e-mails, Nothing from NI…

    For those claiming I should be patient because of all the traffic, I tell you that I have been pursuing this with NI for a week now. I was originally suppose to be contacted on Monday. This was before the PO2 started. How long does it take to send an e-mail to update me on the status of my situation? 30 sec? I have sent an e-mail a day to NI and all have been ignored since my first contact by Steve… I dont have a way to call them because they have no toll free number and the e-mail and their blog is what they say to use to get in contact… so I have no choice but to e-mail and blog… I have no desire to be another greg. I will post what I see and when I see it. I wont sugar coat anything and that is what people following me want. I am not being immature through my approach with NI. I am being a customer…

  1078. boeltwit said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:32

    Geen idee wat ik daar van moet denken…. :?

  1079. lonebrat said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:33

  1081. Kris said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:33

    Yippiee!!! Got an email from NI, logged in and placed an order for 3G PQ. Used an Amex card- transaction completed in less than 2 minutes from start- did not have any issues!! I had NOT notified Amex that I would be making any purchase either!!! Also got confirmation email from NI!!

    Good start to the day!!! Yippieee!!
    (i was so excited that i posted this comment on the wrong blog entry :))

  1082. zaghir said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:34

    I have got mine, and it has been ordered =) I guess Himanshu can give his to the next on the list. Thanks for all the support, this is a great blog, and a great comunity to be a part of.

  1083. Paul Schoe said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:35

    There is a time span in Rohan’s post and indeed people are still getting their invites.
    I do check my email account every couple of hours though ;-D

  1084. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:35

    Lol! That’s happened to me before! Congrats! Were there LCD 3G still available?

  1085. borismedia said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:36

    Assume? How about confirming. It would pretty embarsing for you if thats the issue and your ranting over nothing. If you do get your ADAM, be sure to read the instructions before you rant about something else. Respectfully, please follow their recommendations and check with your bank.

    I got the link ( only one email from noreply at notionink dot com ) there are no 2 mails , Immediatly after i left a comment here saying i am waiting , May be a coincidence though …

    Immediatly went to order page , Ordered ( LCD+Wifi+3G, Since LCD+Wifi sold out) without any problems with Payment gateway… Used Amex card .. Went like a breeze..

    Immediatly got a mail from CCAvenue as well in my inbox.

    Checked the preorder status page , I think Its not updated yet .. It gives me a error saying that “Please enter correct Order Number and Email” .

    Let me wait for my adam to arrive ….

    Ram

  1092. Doja said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:39

    Not a problem. I’m happy for you.
    Welcome to the loooong wait :)

  1093. Kris said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:39

    I think all models were available, the system allowed me to select the features one by one and as I selected each of them, the price kept changing. So I guess the 3g LCD is still available- but I don’t remember clearly- it was a blur :)

  1094. Mridul said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:39

    Invite exhausted!!

  1095. oldbushie said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:40

  1096. karen said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:40

    Hi Paul,
    haven’t made any order yet? Thought you were in PO1?

  1097. zaghir said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:42

    I chose the LCD with 3G, dont know if im going to regret it?
    I hope it wont take to long to get it, congrats to you too.

  1098. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:47

    I know what you mean! Thanks though!

  1099. xge2 said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:47

  1100. thatsdileep said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:49

    Rohan/NotionInk team/Fellow Adam Lovers –

    I have a question regarding the 3G connectivity. Why are there 2 different variants of WiFi + 3G (for americas and rest of the world). I do understand that Americas use 1900 MHz for 3G whereas rest the world uses 2100 MHz. But, Adam being a portable tablet which can be very handy during travel (international), doesn’t it make sense to have a tri band 3G connectivity (like in iPad or Samsung tab, etc…). Especially for people who travel from USA to other continents for business trips it would be preferable to use local data provider to cut down on data costs. Unfortunately it seems like USA version of Adam cannot used for 3G connectivity in other continents. Is my understanding correct in this regard or am I missing something?

    Adam is a great device, far superior than most of the competition. But I think portable devices like these should be universally compatible across all the countries of the globe, just like modern day cellphones (with quad bands).

  1101. karen said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:51

    happy!

  1102. pk said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:52

    +1 million. we wont have bothered if there is a way to verify that we are not left behind. also, going by PO1, pqi models got sold out within couple of hours and so it wont make sense for us to constantly refresh the mailbox for 3 days onlly to found that our model is no longer available when the common link shows up. there is a legit reason for the old timers from complaining. Esp, when we see the new persons getting PO2 invite but not us, it triggers an alarm that we are being ignored :-) its human tendency and we cant change it :-)

  1103. friendbis said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:53

    Hi all,
    Good news is my Adam reached my home town and the bad news is i am still away from home and will reach on 16th.
    Some info for indian buyers. I just bought 16 gig trancend Micro sdhc (class 2) @ Rs 1300/- and 16 gig HP mini pen drive @ Rs 1050/- this is the smallest pen drive available in market i guess and perfect for Adam.

    Happy shopping..

  1104. pk said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:54

    i forwarded my gmail to my office id :-) so i immediately came to know when i got the invite :-D this way i did not have to frequently check my gmail :-)

  1105. Luis Flores said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:54

    This would be great. I hadn’t realized of the iPad or Samsung, I thought they had the antennas according to the carrier they distribute through like cell phones. I always hoped every phone could offer CDMA/GSM technologies a long with GSM Quadband but it seems that phone models are the only differentiator for carriers these days. In Ecuador we are pretty much limited to 850MHz for both 2G/3G for all the operators. It stinks when it comes to phone choice.

  1106. zennaro said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:55

    ok let me know the email of the future owner, to turn any email from NI
    Hello Nicola :)

  1107. pk said, on February 10, 2011 at 22:57

    when i tried, i directly selected 3g model and so i did not see any errors. so can not comment on if the wifi is sold out already :-D

    I got the mail and without any glitch placed order for LCD+Wifi+3G for Rs: 23766.00

    Since no Mastercard, I paid through net banking, So I was just wondering had paid this by CreditCard the amount would have been the same ??

    anyone ??

    Ram,
    I did not get an email from ccavenues, but I did get an “order successful” email from NI and the status shows as paid! If you have not got any of this, then please follow up with NI, CCA and get it resolved

  1118. karthikmscss said, on February 10, 2011 at 23:14

    Got an e-mail from NotionInk with link to pre-order ADAM but my bad luck running out of money for next two weeks…
    Can any one tell me that when NotionInk will detect the amount from CreditCard? At the time of pre-order / when the product starts shipping / when
