Remember the controversial Notion Ink Adam from a startup in India? Well, it looks like most people have forgotten about the company and its product. Last week, Notion Ink Adam posted some information about a major software update for the Adam, which was gone un-noticed by everyone until now.
Notion Ink is soon going to release a major software update for the Adam, which will include the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the OS. The update will also bring a basic music and video player to the Adam. The usual performance, stability and UI enhancements are also on-board.
Here is the official change-log -:
- the new e-book client
- a new Browser (the name of the book client and browser will be released in a separate blog next week)
- updated Kernel
- optimally over-clocked Tegra
- Gingerbread 2.3
- lots of Usability Issues resolved
- new multi-tasking environment (easier way to manage all tabs and applications)
- Chords Music Library and Player (Simple and straight Music Player)
- Video Library and Player
- DSP support, so now equalizer will work in better way. Soon we are adding more bass boost in the speakers as well (not a part of this update).
- Flash pre-installed
- and more!
The new web browser and the eBook client are the Dolphin HD and Kindle. The blog post also states that Notion Ink is already working on porting Honeycomb to the Adam.
It’s nice to see Notion Ink supporting the Adam, but I wonder how many units the startup actually managed to sell. The Notion Ink Adam’s launch was delayed numerous times. When it was finally made available to the public, the shipments were delayed numerous times as well.
The update is expected to be rolled out soon by the company.
