Notion Ink boosts aftersales support & begins Honeycomb transition

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything official out of Notion Ink, but according to CEO Rohan Shravan there’s been plenty going on in the background besides the second batch of Adam tablets shipping out. Perhaps the most immediate change is a boost in support team staffing, which now apparently outnumbers the developer team, and which should hopefully address some of the ongoing aftersales concerns. Meanwhile, Shravan says the company is in the process of closing another round of funding.

The details of that funding haven’t been revealed, but Shravan claims “major operational change” is afoot with a number of new management employees brought in. There are also plans to establish sales and support centers in Germany, India and – first off – the US.

Behind the scenes, Eden has been ported to Android 3.0 Honeycomb, and Notion Ink’s developer team has turned to gaming; the design/UI/animation department has also been enlarged, and there’s an official release of QuckOffice for Adam. Books for Adam is also on the way, from a third-party provider, though will require a facelift to suit Honeycomb. No word on when we can expect the tablet-centric OS to be released, however.
