Plus: What the Hell is Magnalium, anyway?

The boys and girls at Notion Ink have thrown up another blog post updating us on the status of their Wundertablet. Most importantly, their new schedule has them going for FCC certification a week earlier than anticipated. This means that the Adam could well be on track for a November launch.

October will bring their "biggest milestone" and the release of software information and "deal" details. The Adam will have a comic store at launch, the details of which will be out in October. The Adam will have replaceable batteries, and the body will be made of Magnalium alloy.

Magnalium is an aluminum/magnesium alloy with better-than usual corrosion resistance and the added benefit of being flammable when powdered. Magnalium alloys find a place in aircraft, automobiles and quite a few pyrotechnics.

Both the Pixel Qi and LCD tablets will have a button that allows them to turn the LCD off. In the PQ version, this screen will switch over to E-Ink. In the plain jane LCD versions, it will turn off the display to reduce power draw.

Rohan has promised us a ton of photos, all of which should be up soon and some of which will reveal previously hidden details. We'll update you as soon as they go up.
