Notion Ink Adam gets a new OS early

Notion Ink's Android 4.0 upgrade for the Adam drew closer to completion after the company posted a beta release Saturday. The new version brings the expected performance updates from 4.0 while keeping the Adam's custom multi-pane interface. Compared to the alpha, it improves 3G, graphics speed, sound, Wi-Fi, and YouTube HD playback, while also addressing a sleep issue and getting USB back in order.

Some significant problems still exist, including the camera, compass, light sensor, microphone, and notifications being at least partly disabled.

The at-your-own-risk update loads on to an SD card and takes advantage of the recovery mode to load new firmware. Notion Ink's founder Rohan Shravan wasn't ready to commit to when the completed Android 4.0 upgrade would be ready, although a beta is usually a late stage release and close to a finished version.
