What Android 2.3 and 3.0 (Honeycomb) would be bringing to the table:

  • Multi-touch Keyboard ( Need for CTRL+Z made Rohan to build Multi touch keyboard)
  • Better Copy, paste features

Default Adam comes in Matte Black Color with white strip, but this strip is replaceable. Starting Mid-Jan their partners will start shipping different colored strips and you can customize according to your own preference!

Shipping and Global Pricing
DHL is the global shipping partner and Adam is launching with the same price in all the countries, so if you are in a stronger currency country (hello Europe!) you’d be more happy. Notion Ink will always follow One Price Policy for every country as we believe in Globalization and World being our market, not countries.
Official Comments on NFC, Digitizer and Mystery Feature

Adam will not have NFC Feature, but Eve (Next version of Adam) will have NFC
Adam comes with an Open Source implementation which converts it into a digitizer. You don’t even need wires. You can use your Adam as a BIG touch screen for all your PCs, so you can draw, paint, sketch, click, select and do all you want! It can be used as a keyboard as well.
Mystery Feature
Rohan confirmed mystery feature is not NFC and Digitizer, its something other than this, and its going to be mystery till the launch

Finally Rohan’s answer to Engadget’s negative comment on Notion Ink
And finally the Engadget Post: Well we have 3 things here. One image with the older Adam 3D render, second where it was fixed and re-posted and third, an economical way to get more publicity. Can you notice along with the bezel, the location of the icons also changed, both are different silk screens. Little unprofessional journalism
