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.

The agreement is said to be the first of several imminent from Notion Ink.
Notion Ink has been teasing with more details about their upcoming Adam tablet, and perhaps most interesting is the expected battery life. According to the company's blog, the current Pixel Qi units are seeing a minimum of 15 hours runtime, stretching into in excess of two days. Meanwhile USB Host functionality is also working, with Adam supporting peripherals like keyboard and mouse, together with external storage such as hard-drives.
