Notion Ink roller coaster for a second time? Having set the benchmark for Android tablet hype, then run head-first into the practicalities and issues around bringing products to market, Notion Ink has revealed plans to introduce the second-gen Adam 2 tablet in December 2011. Speaking to Light Reading India, Notion Ink CEO Rohan Shravan confirmed that "this December you should see Adam 2 if everything goes fine" and hinted that a CES 2012 presence was likely. No hardware details have been given, but with the original Adam an early adopter of NVIDIA's Tegra 2 and Pixel Qi's sunlight-readable displays, there's already speculation that the Indian company will pair the Tegra 3 Kal-El chip with one of the new breed of Pixel Qi panels. Follow-up hardware to Adam has always been on the roadmap, and Notion Ink was confident that its customized software would populate a range of tablets. If the Adam saga taught us anything, though, it's that a solid spec-sheet isn't necessarily enough to make a convincing, best-selling product. [via Liliputing]

Notion Ink Adam? It's been a while since the first batch of Android slates went out, and Notion Ink has just thrown open the doors for a new round of orders. Meanwhile, Eden 1.5 - Notion Ink's UI and multitasking system - is going out to existing owners later today. It'll also include new apps, though exact details won't be revealed until the new firmware is released. Apparently Honeycomb will follow on come June 27, complete with hardware acceleration. If you want to place an order you'll first have to subscribe to Notion Ink's list, here; the company is sending out ordering invites now. Of course, the Android tablet landscape has changed plenty since we first saw Adam, and it's no longer the first Tegra 2 slate around.

has announced that users of its Adam tablet will now be able to read their Amazon ebooks, with the news that the Kindle app is now available for the slate. The app does make considerable sense when you consider the optional Pixel Qi display, which can function in a similar manner to an e-ink panel on one of Amazon's own Kindle ereaders. Of course, the Kindle app for Android is nothing new, and so this is more an announcement about Amazon giving Notion Ink permission to distribute it through its download store than anything else. Adam lacks official access to the Android Market, and instead uses its own download system. As usual, there's Whispersync support so that reading progress is synchronized over all Kindle apps and hardware: you can pick up your Adam and carry on reading where you left off on your Kindle. The agreement is said to be the first of several imminent from Notion Ink.

According to CEO Rohan Shravan, a "huge" number of order invite emails are already making their way to would-be customers. Shravan also confirms that Adam will skip straight over Gingerbread and instead "will be directly migrating to Honeycomb in future," though no timescale for that update is given. As for the missing Android Market, "Adam does not have market access because it is not a phone" he suggests, and "Android Market is an app store for phone apps." [via SlashGear]
