has been on a roll with releasing videos of their highly anticipated Adam Android-powered tablet. And we're happy to watch them. This time around, the company has treated us to what their calling the Sniffer application, which is designed to work as a file browser. Notion Ink is adamant in its usage, and points out that it's a very important application for a "power user" of the Android Operating System.
Notion Ink has sold out of its pre-order stock of the Adam tablet, though the 10-inch Tegra 2 powered slate isn't expected to ship until early January 2011. Supplies of the Pixel Qi version of the Adam were snapped up within hours of the tablet going on sale earlier this month; it's taken around a week and a half for stock of the cheaper LCD version to be accounted for. Without solid stock numbers it's hard to say how much of a success this is for Notion Ink, though given the understandable wariness many have experienced regarding a new start-up and an unproved design, it's still reasonably impressive.

Notion Ink has released a new video demo of its Adam Android tablet, this time concentrating on the company's homegrown UI, Eden. The footage shows how Eden's multi-pane view can be browsed and rearranged, but also how Notion Ink's multitasking system means that only the active panel on-screen is using system resources. That means that, even if you can see the panel displayed, it's not actually running and taking up cycles in the Tegra 2 chipset. More information on Adam in the video Notion Ink released over the weekend. [youtube GCw6rWa-JJc]
AndroidPolice dug through the returns policy and turned up some very high restocking fees and strict conditions; Notion Ink says it will respond, but until it does we'd recommend keeping your money in your pocket. Update: Notion Ink has responded this morning; more information at SlashGear.
announced details for its Adam pre-order today, with the Android Tegra 2 slate going on sale at 1.30pm EST. Registered users of the official blog will get first shot at ordering - they should have an email explaining how in a few hours time - followed by general sales six hours later. Pricing has been tweaked along the way, with the entry-level Adam now down to $375.33 (rather than $399) while adding 3G takes it to $425.33. The transflective Pixel Qi model will be $499.95 for the WiFi version and $549.99 for the 3G version. US and Europe/Asia modems will be on offer, different bands (and hence taking the total to six SKUs). We're chasing up shipping estimate details and live photos; more information over at SlashGear.
