Notion Ink Adam update yanked after tablets bricked

Sometimes it doesn't pay to be the very earliest of early-adopters, as some Notion Ink pre-order customers have discovered. Unboxing joy turned to bricked-tablet misery after the recommended software update accidentally locked up the Adam slate altogether; Notion Ink has now pulled the update, and there are reflashing instructions at Notion Ink Fan.

At an early count, it doesn't seem like more than a handful of users were affected – after all, the first Adam units only started arriving on doorsteps yesterday – but it's a disappointing first experience for new owners. An updated version of the firmware is apparently in the works, and by all accounts Notion Ink's customer support has been on the ball in dealing with issues.
