Notion Ink Update...

http://www.slashgear.com/notion-ink-...cenes-0997060/

And they've got a new front-end for their website...

I'm hopeful that this device will pan out, but my optimism is starting to wain a bit. BUT...they do mention that prices will be lower...

In the Engadget post (http://www.engadget.com/2010/08/10/n...-are-to-blame/) that led me to the original slashgear one, they also had this info:

Quote:
Update 2: Here's Shravan's official statement...
"We will have the device before the year ends. It will be introduced at a major event after which you can order it online. It has to be placed strategically, as this is our maiden effort. Whatever has happened cannot be changed, but with the support we are getting from all, we might just become a part of the history. Also on the pricing, all the 3 devices will be lower than even the basic model of iPad."

The pricing bit has me hopeful.

Really, though, I'd like an 'open', 1280x960 (or thereabouts) resolution Pixel Qi screen device...a screen size of 6"x8" would suit me (and that resolution) fine...if they can give me a battery that (with the back-light turned off) can give me 20 hours of life (after the battery has been seen some use), I'll be very happy

The Slashgear article was very interesting to read.

The so called professional investors seems very strange, not just that they're secret but the fact that it looks like they're holding back the release. Is this so wise with a lot of new tablets coming to the market during the next couple of months?

The article on slashgear mentions an upcoming second part to the coverage that sounds like it will include, at least some, spec info and, more importantly, some release date info. I'm still very interested in the Adam, although at this point they'll be releasing it with the rest of the herd so there'll be a lot more comparison shopping going on.

If they had release dates, they'd already be announcing them. The only reason for saying they'll be included in the second part is as a teaser to try and get more people to visit the site.

The only thing they're really doing is announcing the date of when they'll be announcing the release dates. We've seen that game played before.

I'm pretty sure you're right, especially since the second article hasn't been released yet, nor is there a date for it either. So we're waiting on the date for the article which will give us the date that the release dates will be announced

The list if MIA tablets and ereaders is, in apple-speak, "insanely great". Just not in a nice way.

Nice for apple though... they have to be loving every delay announced by all the late comers.

I have a feeling that next January's CES will have bunch of companies touting their next generation of unreleased or limited released tablets.

Yep.... and each time they get their name mentioned in the press, which was probably the whole point to begin with.

I've been waiting for one of these for ages. Since then I bought the nook and joined here. I doubt a Notion Ink tablet would replace the nook for dedicated reading, nor would it replace my convertible Touchsmart TM2 laptop, but I'm still excited about the screen tech.

The second article in this series is out:
http://www.slashgear.com/notion-ink-...-more-1297402/

It looks like they are aiming for a November-January release all given the time FCC will take to approve the device.

If we're looking at a January release I will be really frustrated and probably seek out alternative products.

1- If they submit to FCC in November it won't ship til march.
2- I wonder if those folks are aware that the last product named Adam had a 99% failure rate? Only the Apple III did worse at 100%.

My old Adam computer still works (or, at least, it did the last time I pulled it out of my Mom's junk closet a few years back)!

The folks at the Boston Computer Museum may want to talk to you; they're trying to find the one launch ADAM that didn't break.
