Notion Ink tablet delayed until November in some areas

Notion Ink Adam sees further backlog

Notion Ink has let slip that its Adam tablet may not reach some countries until November. The startup's CEO Rohan Shravan has explained that the Android tablet would ideally ship by the end of July but that he has to "fight every day" with investors that want to launch in some areas closer to American Thanksgiving. A launch date is due soon, Shravan said, but whether it will meet the target wasn't indicated.

The 10-inch slate was supposed to be one of the flagships of both Android as a tablet platform and NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra, but it and fellow designs built on both platforms have yet to ship even after being promised for as soon as the spring.

What sparked the delays hasn't always been made apparent but has left the iPad virtually uncontested in the category. A handful of devices, like the ICD Ultra, are waiting on the unveiling of 4G networks like Verizon's before they can appear. NVIDIA has similarly implied that Android may need to adapt to tablets for an ideal fit where iOS is already formatted for the iPad's larger screen. [via SlashGear]

    More Android vaporware...

    Build the hardware and then slap on the Android. A well-thought out strategy for building iPad killers. I have a feeling that this firm is going to have money problems like the JooJoo had. Especially if they have only the geeks as buyers of their product. Building tablets on a shoestring budget isn't going to win the hearts of consumers.

    Rohan, be honest

    There's something wrong with one sentence in the first paragraph. It should read "The startup's CEO Rohan Shravan has explained that the Android tablet would ideally sell like hotcakes but that he has to "fight every day" with customers that want to buy an iPad".

    startups with little money

    always have big problems... but Steve Jobs raised money for Apply by shlepping around hardware and demonstrating it. You seldom hear that mentioned. Mostly you hear the "other side" condemn him for everything he is done. There is a word for that: JEALOUSY... in spades. Every one of these outfits so desperately want to take on Apple and make the loot but they are unwilling to do what Apple does... create something different.
