Android Community Week in Review – Week 49 2010

It has been the official week of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Earlier this week we not only saw the official announcement of Gingerbread, we learned about the device we have heard so much about, the Nexus S. Many manufacturers are getting ready for 2011, bringing in many impressive ultra-powerful smartphones that will all run the newly announced software.

Notion Ink doubts surface: questions first, pre-orders later [Updated]

Concerns are growing over start-up Notion Ink, with the company yet to show hardware of its Adam tablet - which went up for pre-order yesterday - and issues over payment processing and potential return and restocking fees. Despite months of marketing, the Adam tablet went up for order without any hardware demonstration, and while we'd like to see a potential game-changer enter the marketplace, that also makes us cautious. 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.

Notion Ink confirm pre-orders: from $375.33 at 1.30pm EST today

Notion Ink has 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.

Pre-ordering for Notion Ink’s Adam from tomorrow, December 9

Notion Ink tipped us to Android 2.3 Gingerbread earlier in the week, and now we've heard that pre-ordering for the Adam tablet is set to open tomorrow, Thursday December 9 2010. Our trusted source confirms that Notion Ink's binary countdown will indeed hit zero tomorrow and the company begin accepting pre-orders. Initially, pre-ordering will be limited to those who have registered and commented on the official Notion Ink blog, though after that there will be broader availability. Best of all, our source says Notion Ink is already working on an Android 2.3 Gingerbread update that's expected to be released only weeks after Adam itself. Six variants of Adam will be on offer, consisting of combinations of optional Euro/Asia or US 3G (or standard WiFi-only) and a choice of regular LCD or Pixel Qi displays. More details on Adam here, complete with pricing.

Big day for Android today says Notion Ink, NFC suspected

We already know that Gingerbread will have NFC tech support opening up some cool and interesting possibilities for new features on coming Android devices. We have a couple rumors that are dovetailing in with NFC that we should see more info on this week. One of the rumors is that Gingerbread is coming today or tomorrow.

Gingerbread coming December 6th, says Notion Ink

We all know it's coming, we just don't know exactly when. Android 2.3 has been the topic of the Android community for quite some time now, and with Google keeping quiet about its features and release date, we have all been left in the dark. However, according to Notion Ink, it looks like (as rumored) December 6th will be the day we have been waiting for.

Notion Ink starts mystery countdown ending December 9th, its meaning is unknown

The Notion Ink Adam tablet has been a hit ever since we first saw it at CES last year, some even say it's the only Android tablet in which they show any interest in purchasing. Here we are almost a year later, and sure we've had information coming from the company on a regular basis, but we still haven't heard any word of a release date or even had the chance to test one out and see the progress for ourselves.

Notion Ink Releases Official Adam Tablet Website

Ohhh my goodness it's here. A real live friggin amazing webpage for all those awaiting what might be the greatest tablet since Moses stood up there on the mountain top. This is the Notion Ink Adam and it's completely ready to go as far as a webpage presentation goes. Take a look below for some tech specs and head over to SlashGear for the full presentation.

20+ custom Adam apps claim Notion Ink

Notion Ink has been sharing a little more detail on their fast-approaching Adam slate, including new photos of the company's latest manufacturing samples, and word that their software engineers have come up with more than 20 customized apps. As we've seen on the Samsung Galaxy Tab, apps that are suited - not just scaled - to a tablet's display make a world of difference in usability, so we're excited to see Adam's custom Email, Calendar, Office, Paint, Gallery, Settings and File Browser software. Meanwhile there's confirmation of a second round of the company's early-access program for developers, simply to accommodate demand for those wanting to create apps for the Adam slate. Pre-orders for Adam will be taken in December. [gallery]
