This weeks “Week-End Special” from Rohan Shravan, CEO and lead designer of Notion Ink, had some great news for those looking forward to the Notion Ink Adam and all of Android. In this week’s post, Rohan says that all 6 variants of the Notion Ink Adam tablet (3g, WiFi only, LCD, and Pixel Qi) have passed EMI testing at the FCC, which means that the next step is to ramp up mass production of the device in preparation for launch. Though, he did say that they “have done something with [their] FCC application and it will be little difficult for you to find [them]“. Unsure what that could mean, but I guess they didn’t want leaked FCC documents to spoil any of their announcements.
Rohan also said that pre-orders for the Adam will be going up soon, will last for “a long time”, and priority will be given to those who have been actively commenting on the blog.
More interestingly for anyone who hasn’t been closely following the Notion Ink Adam is that Rohan says, “6th December is another big day for Android and you will find out how fast Notion Ink can work. (Eden is extremely compatible with 2.3)”
This seems like a pretty clear indication that Gingerbread will be released in two days, and that the upgrade path for the Adam will be pretty quick (since it has been said that it will launch with Froyo). Gingerbread is coming!
