Design, baby.

Keeping their promise from earlier this week, Notion Ink has made a blog post filled with pictures detailing some key design features of the Adam. The weird bulge on the Adam's side is explained in detail.

It holds the battery, allowing them to make the rest of the tablet much thinner. In your hands, the Adam will be more comfortable than a tablet with an even weight distribution. You feel less of the weight that sits directly in your hands. The cylindrical area also allows for the swivel camera, which saves on parts and cost over a 2-camera model.

Notion Ink also explained the reason for their choice of a 16:9 aspect ratio over a 4:3 aspect ratio like the iPad's. They posted the above picture, which shows how the margins on a 4:3 screen (left) are unreasonably wide because they do not take the edges of the tablet into account. The 16:9 screen uses the physical design to provide margins, giving you a larger reading space.

More pictures will be up soon. We'll let you know as soon as Notion Ink gives us something else to drool over.
