Notion Ink Adam Q and A Session [MicroSDHC, video, ext hard drive, Sniffer]

So a fellow from XDA Developers Forums by the name of can90 has emailed Notion Ink about the Adam tablet. He got some answers (at least one of which might be totally wrong.) Subject matter includes headset, video recording, hard drive plugin, light sensor, Sniffer, Leaves, Screen Protector, and MicroSDHC. Take a peek at the full interview below.

These are the questions and answers between can90 and "Jon" whom he mailed at Notion Ink. Have a looksee:

Hi. I email my question to Notion Ink yesterday, and today they replied me. Here is the email:
Greetings from the Notion Ink Support Team!

1. Can we plug in headset to Notion Ink Adam? Yes

2. What is the resolution and fps of video recording of Adam? resolution 640 x 480 and fps of 15 fps.

3. Can we plug 1TB hard drive to it? We are not too sure if a HD of that size would show up.

4. Can we disable the ambient light sensor if we want? Yes.

5. Sniffer shows 1 USB drive even a USB drive doesn’t plugged. However, we have 2 USB port. What if we plug 2 USB flash drive at a time, will it work? Will Sniffer shows both of them? No, it would only work and show 1 device.

6. Can leaves work in the portrait mode? No

7. Will Notion Ink come with screen protector or not? Yes, the Adam will come with a screen protector.

Thank you for your continued support to Notion Ink!

Warm Regards
Jon

I also learned that Notion Ink Adam supports MicroSDHC upto 128 GB. Hope I could help for others who has those questions in their mind.

The one item that might be incorrect is something Gkar3 (another XDA member) pointed out, and that's that Adam cannot support SHCD up to 128 GB because specs limit SDHC to 32 GB - at the highest. He also points to this source for that info tip factoid: SDCard.org

NOTE: if you'd like to get a closer look at the Notion Ink Adam, take a peek at our Hands-On at CES 2011 over on SlashGear.

    I will test and verify these things very soon.

    I also wonder about the stated 640 x 480 at 15 fps video recording resolution. I believe the Tegra SoC supports much higher HD recording and if so, then the Adam is probably not limited to those lower quality specs.

    If there is a 128 GB drive size limit it may be imposed by the Android OS which which will apply to USB drives and SD cards. So any drive larger than 128 GB would not show up, even when formatted as FAT32. microSDHC cards are not readily available larger than 32GB so I cannot test that, but I do have large USB thumb drives and external hard drives.

    Anyway, check notioninkfan.com soon for testing results…

    Cool Greg, thanks!

    I don’t believe that we will be able to attach a headset into our Adam as there’s no mic port.

    I believe that anything is possible with magic.

    Looks like something is Burning Chris. He transforms a reply from tech support into an interview! !
    Notion Ink Adam tablet must be a important product if even tech support replies are newsworthy! !

  • elliot hunter

    always first greg! haha

    never known anyone so onthe ball!!

    i got myself a 32gb microSD from amazon so hope it does go up to 32.

    see you around dude :)

  • clockcycle

    A mis-wording or mis-understanding perhaps, he probably meant USB supports up to 128mb. Maybe they have developers’ insiders info on the future possibility of that capacity SDHC with 3.0 specs. I’m speculating even the possibility that it is shooting for SDXC? Maybe; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SDXC#SDXC
