Would You Adam and Eve it? Notion Ink Tablet Shipping on Wednesday(ish)

Breaking news from Rohan Shravan of Notion Ink!

Adam has official clearance from the US government.

This means that Notion Ink’s lovely, albeit mainly vaporous til recently, Adam tablet will finally commence shipping.

Pre-orders started to be taken last month and a loving display of its UI was revealed later which all pointed to something positive happening around the corner.

According to the Notion Ink blog the Adam tablet should start moving out “around Wednesday” after the hardware gets its FCC stamp.

Adam was awarded a ‘Best of CES 2011’ honorable mention which is pretty good work considering the glut of tablets being flashed about the place!

For maths nerds – even the product code will turn you on:

There is a small story behind the product code (assigned by Notion Ink). It reads NI3421A01. NI stands for Notion Ink and A01 is Adam 1 series. 3421 are consecutive numbers in the Fibonacci series. We can trace the number down to NI0000A01 (later ones being 0100, 0102, 0302, 0503, 0805, 1308, 2113 and 3421). This would mean that the final Adam you will receive is the 9th iteration! Behind every version and number there is either a very beautiful or sad story. For examples the 1308 version was in May last year when the investor issue started.

I really want to get my hands on one of these and give it a thorough testing!
