Notion Ink's Adam tablet has been successfully rooted, and with it the Android Market added to the slate's software. The handiwork of NotionInkHacks, the root not only opens up Adam to modification but makes a few extra tweaks, for instance adding the Gingerbread keyboard as an option, and restoring the YouTube app. There's also a home switcher and Live Wallpaper support, along with a slight increase to the frame buffer rate which might just make the screen a little smoother. On the flipside, it's expected that using the new firmware will break the official Notion Ink OTA updates, but we're guessing that most users will be content with using offline updates if it means they get access to the Android Market.

Notion Ink's Eden UI has been ported to the Viewsonic GTablet, after the start-up released fix files containing the slate's ROM for those who had bricked their Adam. xda-developers wasted no time in bringing the three-pane interface over to the GTablet, and while it's not 100-percent stable, it's still arguably better than the UI Viewsonic opted for. Interestingly the Notion Ink team seems aware of the hacking efforts, and - at least going by the latest blog post - don't appear too upset. "XDA community, we love you!" CEO Rohan Shravan claims.

Notion Ink, and the company is doing a little teasing with an official unboxing of the Android slate. You certainly get more than just Adam shoved inside a cardboard box; the packaging itself turns into a stand for using Adam on the desktop, such as when you've got a keyboard and mouse hooked up. There's also news that a software update will be ready and waiting for new owners to install, though we're guessing it's an Eden-related package rather than anything more significant with Android.
