    Engadget probably hacked in to disrupt the ordering process...

    OK, I found the eMail in my Spam folder.
    But it's just teasing me. When I click on the
    link, it tells me it's not 12pm PST yet. When
    in fact it's 1:23pm PST.

    What's up with that?

    This is the text in the msg

    Hello and Greetings From Notion Ink!

    Concerns with ordering Notion Ink

    I share the concerns of some other Adam fan on some blog I can't reproduce.
    Here they are with a few edits of mine.
    Except for questions I (obviously) deleted, I think
    the questions are reasonable and cogent.

    1. WE ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY NEED TO SEE VIDEOS/PHOTOS OF THE FINAL PRODUCT.

    2. If pre-ordering, when will the credit card be charged? At the time of the pre-order, or at the time the item ships?

    5. When will the first review units arrive at Anandtech, Slashgear, and other reputable reviewers?

    8. How much memory comes pre-installed on the Adam?

    11. Will the Android Market be available on the Adam at launch?

    12. Does NI have a trouble-ticket and technical support system in place?

    13. Will you be opening a standard discussion forum for the NI Adam where we can interact with, and receive direct support from, the engineers at NI?

    14. Are you planning to partner with any outside retailers, or will the NI facilities in India be the only location for all sales/support?

    15. What are the warranty details for the Adam?

    16. How/where will repairs, replacements, and returns be handled by NI? Will NI cover shipping to/from the NI facilities for warrantied repair services?

    17. Who has NI partnered with for officially-endorsed peripherals (ie. cases, adapters, screen protectors, keyboards, docks, etc)?

    18. What are the exact contents of the box that will ship with the Adam?

    Got mine, Won't be pre-ordering.

    Way too many questions as the post above me mentioned. This is really making me sad

    Unhappy Mr. Shravan Step Up

    Please Rohan,

    Post something on your blog -- don't let this
    order snafu "sink your boat."

    All you have to do is explain why no one is
    able to order -- we'll understand and be patient.

    But in this case (so far), no news is deadly news.

    Seems like quite a few of the "regular" posters on the blog are still in without pre-order emails.
