Notion Ink Battles Insinuations of Unevenly Bright Screens, Broken Cameras, Customer Service Stalls

It appears, if a few folks over at NotionAddicts messageboard are any indication, that Notion Ink is facing some heavy allegations from the first round of pre-order customers. Amongst these allegations are that Notion Ink is purposely stalling out on customers looking for refunds so that their 7 day return period will expire and it'll be more difficult (and more costly) to get their due exchange.

Viewsonic GTablet gets UI overhaul with Notion Ink’s Eden [Video]

Viewsonic's GTablet didn't exactly impress early-adopters with its stock interface, but it seems Notion Ink may have inadvertently come to the rescue. xda-developers modder roebeet has taken the Notion Ink ROMs and whipped up a custom Eden build for the GTablet, putting the three-pane UI and slick browser onto the rival slate.

Notion Ink Adam gets official unboxing

After announcing earlier this week that its Adam tablet was finally shipping, Notion Ink has shared an official unboxing with some of the first units to land with them.

Notion Ink Adam display neither matte nor scratch-resistant? [Updated]

Frustration among Notion Ink Adam pre-order customers, as one of the most anticipated display features - the matte finish, scratch-resistant display - turns out to be not entirely as is seems. According to Notion Ink's "Design" page, the Adam tablet's screen is "made of pure matte glass"; however, according to company emails to pre-order customers, in actual fact the display itself is glossy and non-scratch-resistant, and uses an adhesive screen protector in order to meet the promises on the spec sheet.
