Hints running Android 2.3 Gingerbread
Notion Ink has released a demo video of its Adam tablet in response to a request from Android Police who were keen to see the interface working live, rather than just in rendered demos. The video (included below) shows Notion Ink CEO Rohan Shravan putting the Eden UI and its multitasking panel engine through its paces. Up until now, it has also been thought that the Adam tablet will be running Android 2.2 (Froyo), although the clip hints at the possibility of the device shipping with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) as it refers to the utilization of the Android 2.3 framework.
To demonstrate the performance of the device in the real-world, the demo shows how the device handles multiple applications and with their panels open. Running at the same time are the email client, browser, navigation app, canvas app, calendar, office suite, sniffer file browser, pen drive and SD card. The demo then adds a weather app and several tabs to the browser. From what can be seen in the demo, it appears that the Tegra 2-powered Notion Ink Adam handles the tasks smoothly.
Also of note in the demo is the way the device works with USB devices from pen drives to other peripherals such as a wireless mouse. It will even work with portable or desktop hard drives.
The Notion Ink Adam is currently available for pre-order ranging in price from $375 to $550. However, the Pixel Qi display iterations have already sold out of their first production run. It ships in the next 8 to 12 weeks. [via Android Police]
