Notion Ink Adam to ship with Android 2.2

Notion Ink says no Android 3.0 out of box

Notion Ink chief Rohan Shravan said later on Friday that the Adam tablet is likely to ship with no later than Android 2.2. He acknowledged that the "window is really small" for releasing a device with the current Google OS but that 3.0 was off the cards for the finished slate. The company wants the tablet to be upgradable to 3.0, but it can't design for the new OS without fixed hardware requirements from Google, Shravan said.

The 10-inch tablet has been repeatedly delayed but promises to be one of the faster devices available, as a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 250 would give it 1080p video support. It would also have a front camera for video chat and possible content deals for media and reading services from the start. Some of Notion Ink's timing is dependent on software, as it plans to customize some of the interface for the larger tablet screen area rather than simply let Android scale to the higher resolution.
