Notion Ink Adam Release Delay: A little more patience please

Notion Ink Adam Release Delay: A little more patience please

Here at OSM we’re great fans of the Notion Ink Adam, the innovative new tablet due to be released very shortly. We recently posted an article on the Motorola Xoom vs. the Notion Ink Adam and also included both of these upcoming tablets in our 5 of the best tablets from CES 2011.

A couple of days ago we told how there had been a slight delay in the release of the Adam, apparently because of FCC labelling requirements, and that some of the customers who pre-ordered the tablet had received e-mails to say it would be coming soon. Now we hear from Chris Burns over on Android Community that Rohan Shravan of Notion Ink has posted more about the delay on its site.

Shravan talks of the need for FCC and CE certifications and confirms as we previously reported that the necessary approval tests have been passed. He points out that Notion Ink is erring on the side of caution by waiting for the official confirmation from the FCC, hence the delay, and asks people eager to get their hands on the Adam for a “little more patience please.” Shravan also speaks of the Android OS Honeycomb and says that updates will be available as soon as the OS becomes available.

Meanwhile you may be interested in an interesting article by Andy Ihnatko over on the Chicago Sun-Times who has written in length about tablets from CES 2011 and has some very positive things to say about the Notion Ink Adam. We’re always interested in what our readers have to say so please do send in your comments and thoughts on the Adam.

    I agree with Rohan's "a little more patience please" appeal to the customers. I know there are no excuses - genuine or otherwise-for delays. He is only being rightly and righteously cautious in pleading for this "a little bit more patience" in the long-term interest of the rarest of the rare Indian-home-grown product companies.

    Look, here in the U.S. (or in parts of the world other than India), we are not terribly concerned with the "Indian-home-grown product" argument. We purchase a product and expect the basic necessities to be delivered upon. This includes timely delivery and not dealing with excuse after excuse. I walked away after the debacle of a pre-order launch that they had, especially considering that the product was overdue at that point by months. Either produce the product or don't, but quit dragging people along! I feel for the people who pre-ordered, I almost did so myself. I'll be buying a Xoom.

    Well, blame the FCC then, lol, after all, it's a product coming from outside of USA :) If people waited this long, what's a little more delay to them?

    If we exercise any more patience, the Asdam will be DOA. Nice idea, but too late to matter.

  5. LB says:

    every excuse puts just that much more distrust in a company that doesn’t produce.

    agree, I personally getting fed up with all those anticipations and then delays, there is even no "real" review of the product so far… on the other hand, more and more new generation of tablets will be released soon, I'm not sure if I will still be interested if they don't release the product asap.
