If you’re one of those people out there that stuck with Notion Ink’s Adam fiasco then there’s good news for you today. For those that don’t know the Adam was a tablet developed by Notion Ink released in Q4 2010. It measured 14 mm thick (2 mm shy of the monstrosity we know as the Toshiba Thrive), housed a 1GHz dual-core Cortex A9 processor, Pixel Qi display, and an Nvidia Geforce ULP GPU. It was plagued with problem after problem leading to delay after delay. Well its lackluster performance gets a little shinier today with the work of a modder in the Android community who has ported Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) to the device.
The video clearly shows the port to be in working order, at least superficially, and with any luck, the world should see a release soon. In other news, there were rumors that Notion Ink would be showing a new device (Adam 2) to the world in December, but seeing as we have no word as of yet, that probably won’t be coming. Just another promise in the long line of Notion Ink promises left unfulfilled. Unfortunate. In any case, hats off to our dev community and bring on ICS!
