Notion Ink

We are live again!

Posted in Uncategorized by Rohan Shravan on May 30, 2011

[Update: Many users are experiencing some issues in update and on conclave, as we are experiencing extremely heavy traffic on the store. We have stopped the update servers for a while and will go live again at 3PM IST  with new build IDs and different servers for smoother downloads and installs. 

There will be alternative server addresses as well for those who want to install manually

Thanks for being patient]

Hello Everyone!

Sales are live again! Those who have received emails can log in and select the variants they want! And for those who haven’t got any email, here is the link to subscribe! http://store.notionink.com/subscribe.php Indians can expect to see integrated prices (inclusive of shipping, taxes, customs and handling charges (and yet cheaper than earlier end prices)). Australians can expect local technical support, and so can Europeans!

Also in the evening today, all can update to the new Eden 1.5 with more apps. We have kept our energies focused at Honeycomb rather than fixing everything on 2.3, but still those who want to test, can test the 2.3 variant on Wednesday!

As for a fixed date on Honeycomb, expect 27th of June with acceleration and more!

Warm Regards

Rohan Shravan

      Hi Rohan, these are exciting news but my question is with the hardware, will the new adams have an improved PQ screen? and will this be the screen for the Adam 2? With all of the developments being announced on Quad 4 processors it’s good to see the evolution of the software and NI operations. For the release of A2 will we have dependability on both those fronts? This is the perfect opportunity to start showcasing what A1 has evolved into and NI as an accomplished fact and not a question mark. Ni can be a unique company with a game changing mission and a product way ahead of the competition. Show us, we want to believe that dreams can come true, that the future is ours to make.

      Rohan would have advertized if there was any upgrade in
      hardware.

  2. fundaazoflife said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:42

    That was…. unexpected!

  3. Tapan Dave said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:43

    Local Support for Australia.. exciting..!! where where?

  4. fundaazoflife said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:44

    I got am email that said “The not so good news is that we are completely sold out…”

    You could have at least changed the content of the email, you know… It is the same as the last time when the devices were sold out.

    At last :)

  6. gunnerroy said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:46

    were is the update that was promised first

  7. Mehdi said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:46

    :-)

  8. Udayan U said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:47

    This is awesome news.

  9. sebble said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:49

    Great news, hope this fixes the GPS/compass.

    • levpius said, on May 30, 2011 at 20:39

      I was hoping Rohan would put a Yes smiley for your question

    • levpius said, on May 30, 2011 at 20:40

      And I am hoping this would include the complete Android bluetooth stack.

    I’ve been registered for several months, but I didn’t get an e-mail =/
    I also re-registered a number of days ago, and I’ve just re-registered with a second e-mail address.
    I’m very eager to get my very own Adam, as I missed out in the past due to NotionInk not accepting MasterCard payments. Hopefully this can be resolved quickly :)

    • Rohan Shravan said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:59

      Mastercard is ready now!

    • predakanga said, on May 30, 2011 at 18:02

      Yes, which is why I’m eager to find out why I didn’t receive an e-mail. I have everything ready and waiting to order, just need that invite.

    • Himanshu said, on May 30, 2011 at 18:03

      @pred just go to the link and submit your mail id : you will get the link :)

    • predakanga said, on May 30, 2011 at 18:14

      Ah, it looks like it might have been because shipping is currently unavailable to Australian customers. A shame, but I guess that’s the price we pay for getting an island to ourselves, heheh

    • elmelao said, on June 4, 2011 at 01:56

      I’ve been registered too. No invite yet. I sent it again. It says an e-mail has been sent, but nothing received.

    • karen said, on June 4, 2011 at 02:00

      Try a gmail account ;)
      That worked for me.

    • Himanshu said, on June 4, 2011 at 09:48

      Welcome Back elmelao after such a long gap. Have you check your spam folder.? Gmail worked for me instantly

  11. Paul Kemp said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:51

    Has the wifi issue been addressed?

    • Rohan Shravan said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:58

      Yes! :)

    • Udayan U said, on May 30, 2011 at 20:35

      Rohan nice to see your comment on the blog. I am glad that many issues are fixed. You have not told anything about the GPS issue, the support team promised that GPS library will be fixed during this update. Could you throw some light on this one. Its been such a longtime since i got my adam. I am loving it except for two things, GPS and viewing angle of LCD.

    • Rohan Shravan said, on May 30, 2011 at 20:40

      Hi,
      It is fixed.
      Regards

    • Udayan U said, on May 30, 2011 at 20:38

      I have also been promoting Adam everywhere i go and with everyone i speak including kids! A fully functional Adam is going to be a boost.

    • Udayan U said, on May 30, 2011 at 20:42

      Awesome thanks !

    • Udayan U said, on May 30, 2011 at 20:48

      Rohan what about the bangalore wide campaign that you had talked about. Has it kicked off. No signs of it yet. I am quite keen to see how that goes and i would like to be a part of it(possibly). If you could make a post about the same it would be great. Thanks again.

    • Suresh said, on May 30, 2011 at 21:39

      Hey Rohan,

      Its well past the evening andwe are still waiting…. what’s up with the update?

  12. darembo said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:52

    great news , and unexpected indeed

  13. mohanthinking said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:53

    Any post is refreshing, no matter how trivial news it is. Honeycomb on 27th is bigger news. Keep going.

  14. Udayan U said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:54

    This evening when? It is still not available.

  15. adpich said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:54

    Good news indeed but… no mail yet.

    chears

    • adpich said, on May 30, 2011 at 18:15

      what about shipping (and receive) date this time Rohan?

    • Veeraraagavan said, on May 30, 2011 at 18:19

      @adpich,
      yours is a question, like mine that will go unanswered, though there are around 28 responses only.

    • adpich said, on May 30, 2011 at 18:24

      yeah, I’m still thinking about the back trackpad… and radio of course !

    • hitchkay said, on May 30, 2011 at 20:58

      @adpich

      I got an email saying shipping date is anticipated to be between June 15 and June 20 (PQi+WiFi/3G)

      Now I hope the hardware update doesn’t come in 3 months :D ;)

    • adpich said, on May 30, 2011 at 22:50

      yes I saw that in my email.
      I bought a PQi Wifi, because my smartphone can be used as modem.
      Now I just want to get it before holydays !

  16. Veeraraagavan said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:54

    @Rohan,
    I hope it is Honeycomb 3.1, with official permission from Google?

    • Tim said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:57

      I can’t imagine it not being official but then I cant imagine what clock and calendar is being used either so I suppose you raise a legitimate concern.

    • Himanshu said, on May 30, 2011 at 18:05

      @tim :)

    • Veeraraagavan said, on May 30, 2011 at 18:07

      exactly, still think they are in discussion with Google(or asking their permission, however you want to put it), because I see Rohan responding to others and not to my question….

      And one more thing, Rohan once told me that NTFS support is coming, I am not sure that is included in this update. And also, what happened to FM Radio – the supposed bonus feature?

  17. Tim said, on May 30, 2011 at 17:55

    Was hoping for the update this morning my time which is evening IST time but apparently this evening means some other time zone. Ah well, I can wait but I was looking forward to having the time to play with it on my day off. Maybe tomorrow will not be too busy and I an enjoy it then :)

  18. Himanshu said, on May 30, 2011 at 18:02

    :)

  19. Burt O' Stage said, on May 30, 2011 at 18:03

    I didn’t even read it completely…

    European support!!? wtf… Really?

    This is indeed quite a surprise!

  20. Phillip said, on May 30, 2011 at 18:08

    Yay for Australian adamites
