Notion Ink Adam gets Eden UI reveal

Notion Ink this weekend explained some of the first details behind the custom interface for its Adam tablet. The 10-inch Android tablet will build on Google's formula with Eden, a multitasking system based around panels: each app will run in a panel with a home area to pick which panels are running. A multitasking mode will allow three apps to show at once, making it possible to run non-optimized apps without wasting space.

Other apps will run in a "deep sleep" mode that won't impact performance. Apps should in theory interact with each other, although most Android apps aren't written to work in a way that would allow panel-to-panel interaction. It's also possible to use apps in a traditional full-screen mode.

Along with the software component, Notion Ink has also received some of its first production samples and now has 10 units with different color samples to see which ones they can use.

The Adam could be ready as soon as the end of the year and will have versions with and without 3G and Pixel Qi's outdoor-friendly 3qi screen. Readers will get LongBox comics in a special deal.
