CES 2011: All-Star Tablet Round-Up

CES 2011: All-Star Tablet Round-Up

Every CES has its unofficial theme - we've seen netbooks and ereaders flood the booths in previous years - and 2011 was the turn of tablets. As predicted before the show, the rise of the iPad, the imminent release of Android 3.0 Honeycomb and the promise of a new, lucrative segment has worked like catnip to manufacturers large and small. Check out the SlashGear CES 2011 tablet roundup after the cut.

Notion Ink Adam: Benchmarks & Flash Testing

Notion Ink Adam: Benchmarks & Flash Testing

As you've seen from our first hands-on, Notion Ink's Adam tablet is a pretty smooth operator, but we wanted to see just how smooth. The company allowed us to load up an Android benchmarking app to see how the slate performs, but there are a few caveats to bear in mind.

Notion Ink Adam hands-on at CES 2011

We've been tracking the Notion Ink story since before CES 2010, and a year later we've sat down with CEO Rohan Shravran and the final product. Despite skepticism at what the start-up could achieve, the end result is a mightily impressive interpretation of an Android slate. Check out our hands-in impressions after the cut.

Notion Ink Demos Eden in Part Eight of Series, Shows Off 3rd-Party App Installation [Video]

Notion Ink's Adam tablet is still a hot ticket, with people all over the world waiting to get their hands on their very own Android-powered tablet device. The story of the Adam is a roller coaster in of itself, but the company has made huge leaps forward when it comes to showing off the device. Perhaps hearing people call out for actual video of the device, along with its User Interface (UI) and functionality actually sank in (it did). We've seen plenty of videos of the Adam in the past, and now Notion Ink's Rohan Shravan is ready to show off something else: Eden VIII.

Notion Ink Demos Adam Leaves System and Desktop

Notion Ink Demos Adam Leaves System and Desktop

Tonight comes the newest installment in the EDEN system of demos, this one VII and the first one to be done direct from the screen via the HDMI out to a computer at Notion Ink. This means a much better looking quality video, but still without sound. Improving ever so steadily! This video features a look at the Leaves system of working with the tablet and a tiny glance at the desktop. Leaves take each of your apps (apps that are ready to work with Leaves, of course) and turns them into sort of big widgets. They say that since things like feeds, Tweeting, Facebooking, and changing a song aren't full-fledged apps in themselves, they shouldn't need a full app open! Enter Leaves - or panels, if that's what you'd like to call them. Check it out!

We've been waiting to see the fruits of Notion Ink's EAP (early access program) with third-party developers, and the Adam tablet's mapping app - developed by Merio - is a good place to start. Rather than simply blow up Google Maps to the 10.1-inch display, Adam has its own custom app supporting POIs, turn-by-turn directions and 3D.

It may have been a holiday weekend, but Notion Ink has still been busy producing demo videos of the Adam tablet as the slate's release date edges ever-nearer. Both hardware and software are getting a workout, too, with the company kicking off with an HDMI demo as well as being used as a "false digitizer" tablet over the WiFi connection. Meanwhile, there's also some benchmarking comparing Adam to the iPad, iPhone and other Android browsers.

Notion Ink Adam Unboxed, Poses for Photo

Notion Ink Adam Unboxed, Poses for Photo

While there are an innumerable of products launched every year, there's only a few that warrant a special kind of attention. And still fewer that, if you happen to get it way earlier than everyone else, you take the time to get your camera, or find a camera, to take some photos of your prize. Despite all of the live videos, User Interface (UI) demonstrations, and images we've seen of the Notion Ink Adam tablet device, there are still naysayers out there, saying that the Android-powered device will never see the light of day. Well, for one lucky individual named Van Gunst (who's Dutch), he has proof that the tablet is real, and he was kind enough to take some photos.

Notion Ink Canvas demo: Adam’s drawing & image editing app [Video]

Another day, another Notion Ink demo video, and after yesterday's Sniffer file management run-through there's a somewhat more entertaining app on show today. Canvas is a drawing and image editing program of Notion Ink's own creation, and though the video only shows the former functionality there's apparently support for layers, different brush types and other pro-style tools.

Notion Ink has pushed out its latest video demonstrating the custom software it has put together for the Tegra 2 powered Adam tablet. The topic - the file browser app Sniffer - may not seem all that exciting, but if you've ever tried to use an iPad or Android-based tablet for more in-depth work than web browsing and email then you'll likely know how important deep file management and control is.

Notion Ink has released another video of its Adam tablet, and this time they're focusing on perhaps one of the most important mobility apps bar the browser: the email client. Their homegrown "Mail'd" app is, the company boasts, one of the fastest around, and includes features like a multitouch QWERTY keyboard and the ability to recall messages you've sent accidentally.

Notion Ink Adam pre-orders sell out

Many were cautious about Notion Ink and its lack of track record in the tablet industry, but that doesn't appear to have affected the overall appetite for pre-ordering. Having gone up for pre-order earlier this month, the company now reports that the Adam tablet is completely sold out ahead of January 2011 deliveries.
