Notion Ink's Adam Website Launches

Notion Ink's Adam Website Launches
/* Story Top Left 2010 300x250, created 7/15/10 */ google_ad_slot = "8340327155";
 
 

December 9 Launch Date Leaked?

Fans of the much-hyped Adam from Notion Ink have a brand new website to visit and drool at. Ronan posted a blog update today announcing that the NI website is now live. It includes details behind the Adam's creation and a spec list.

We're looking at a total thickness of around 14 mm, with a 191 mm width and a 269 mm length. The total weight is given as 1.6 pounds. The processor is an Nvidia Tegra 250 dual-core Cortex A-9 with a ULP GPU. There is 1 GB of DDR2 RAM and 1 GB of SLC. Expect 8+ GB of flash storage, plus microSD support. The battery is a 3-cell 24.6 Whr battery.

That display is 10.1" with optional Pixel Qi screen and a 1024x600 resolution. It is multitouch capable, with a matte finish and anti-glare treatment to make it smooth for sunlight use. Notion Ink has spent a great deal of effort scratch-proofing the screen and making it finger-print resistant. Their work is backed up with blog photo comparisons.

The camera is a 3.2 MP swiveling shooter. WiFi is b/g/n, while Bluetooth is 2.1. There are 2 USB 2.0 slots, a mini USB slot, HDMI-out, a SIM slot and a DC connector. The Adam has a 3-axis accelerometer, ambient light sensor, GPS and a digital compass. There's also one unannounced mystery feature that Notion Ink intends to torture us with for a while longer.

Over on the design section of the site, Notion Ink talks about the motivation behind the Adam's physical layout: Geometry. All lines and curves on the Adam are based around the Golden Rule. The rear curve (where the battery is held) is seen as the Adam's defining feature as a gadget. NI claims it creates a natural viewing angle and allows for perfect speaker location. That bulge also makes battery-swapping easier and makes the swivel camera more pleasant to use.

Notion Ink has textured the plastic surface to make it grippable and give it an 'alive' feel. They note that, "You will not see perfection, because it is the first in it's species, but you will see the potential, to become the ruling one."

And that right there sums up Notion Ink's corporate attitude. The little company holds very little truck in secrecy. Most of what we've wanted to know has been revealed, openly, well in advance of the launch. To me, this means that Notion Ink is extremely comfortable with the product they are about to deliver. They know how their hardware and software measures up to everything else on the market.

Or, at least, they think they know. And I tend to lean in the 'Notion Ink is for real' direction myself. It isn't because the Adam's specs are super hot or because the idea of an Android tablet is inherently sexy. A bunch of slates with similar hardware will be launching soon and Android has done nothing yet to distinguish itself as a tablet OS.

The Adam has a vision behind it, and that is something most consumer gadgets lack. Vision is the difference between the iPad and the Galaxy Tab. The former was built from the ground-up with very specific goals for the emotional and tactile responses it would provoke. The latter was made because Samsung wanted a 7" tablet that could hang on to the success of the Galaxy S.

Vision doesn't mean the Adam will succeed. Notion Ink has no track record, after all. But vision will secure them a solid audience of eager early adopters, and vision (combined with a good product) might be enough to make this thing 'hip'. The Adam is the first tablet since the iPad with the potential to develop a rabid, active fan base.

And that is worth paying attention to. The vanguard of this fanboy army has already uncovered something on the new website. A strange binary number appears on every page. On November 22, it read "10001", or binary for "17". Today it reads 10000, which means "16".

This has prompted speculation of a countdown to December 9, 2010. Which may be the launch (or pre-order) date for the Adam. When Rohan was asked he stated that it was a bug...and then winked. Something is definitely Up.
