    NI Adam - a disappointment - 3G issues and screen issues [PixelQi+3G+WiFi]

    I am very disappointed from the device.
    I bought the PixelQi+3G+Wifi. it arrived a few days ago and the screen is horrible,it has bleeding edges,And very blur corners,the brightness is not perfect and colors are dead.
    I couldent activate 3G at all (I got airplane mode right from the start) after a few mails to support and several attempts to solve the problem they admitted it is a problem that will be solved in the next update.
    Here are some photos compared to my Elocity A7.
    I decided to return the device ( losing $180 for costumes and shipping fees).

    other edges getting white corners are real problem.. but that edge blur is not an issue.. i guess u r running vegan tab... and thats how the rom blurs out around the edges.. so thats not correct to point out.. though i agree the white corners are a problem.. luckily i dont have them...

    I feel for you and am glad I didn't have the same experience with the PQ 3G Adam that you did. I admit that I have light bleeding in around the edges but its only noticeable on startup. The PQ (the primary reason I bought the Adam) works great and since I use mine outside or in strong light most of the time it does everything I need. Wifi works well and holds my signal and once I got the right settings in place for 3g that hasn't caused me any problems, either. Sure, I have things to gripe about but, overall, I am glad that I have an Adam over anything else. That being said- I recommend the Ipad2 to most people whom ask me about it because I get the impression from them that the just want to "use it and not worry." The "techies" I know like it but they also like to take things apart. However, I agree that the version I purchased was not ready for the "regular retail consumer." I just hope the issues (for the most part) are software and not hardware related and can be fixed in a subsequent update from Notion Ink.

    It all goes back to what your expectations were out of the gate with a product that is a v1.0 and a company that doesn't have established sales or support channels or routines.
    PixelQi, Wifi + 3G (UMTS 850/1900 MHz) Ordered: 11th Feb, On my kitchen counter 30 March. Loving it since day 1.

    Out of curiosity, did you have to do anything to get att on board with your 3g? I do not have another account to start with. Locally they don't seem to have a clue since it is not their supported device.

    I have realized that the blur thing is from the VTL launcher ,still , bleeding is seen in many brightness selections,colors are dull compared to a regular LCD screen , i am still unable to activate 3G yet, and there is no reply from NI support after i informed them that i wish to return the product and I'm waiting for return procedure details.
