Final First Thoughts:
Buyers remorse has not and probably will not be setting in. The hardware is just as expected and so far I am quite impressed. There are no apps included that truly show me the power of the Tegra 2 chipset but hopefully that changes in the near future. The software will be the biggest learning curve but more than likely someday when it becomes available I’ll be sporting the open source OS in its stock format. I do this with all my Android devices when possible so I can’t really take any innovation points away from Notion Ink for making it their own. The sniffer app automatically mounts any USB drive I stuck in there which will make it easy to transfer or store files or docs to and from the device. There are enough ports on this to connect almost anything and the HDMI out will be perfect to take along any full HD videos or movies that I want to put on a larger screen. The overall build quality is great and the tablet itself feels quite solid which is something I value when buying a new device. After some good use I’ll write a full review and focus more on the software aspect of the tablet. If you have any questions or anything you want to know about please feel free to ask them in the comment section. Stay tuned to Gear Diary for more on the Adam Tablet.
Update: After some quick tinkering I was able to load almost any application by simply putting the .apk file on a thumbdrive and installing it directly. Flash, Angrybirds, Live wallpapers, ADW, etc works flawlessly. No hacking/modding/rooting needed…for now. Game on.
