    The Notion Ink Adam is being delayed again, according to Engadget. Some investors have decided to bail on Notion Ink, leaving the company with funding issues which subsequently led to missing the July / August timeline for manufacturing. Now the device wont be available earlier than at least November.

    Notion CEO Shravan assures that the device will be available before the year ends, with pricing of all three devices lower than the basic model of the iPad ($499). If this includes the Pixel Qi display variant, this is truly an attractive price for this device. But will we be enticed by more competitive Android tablets by then?

    Here's the full quote of Shravan as on Engadget:


    (Append)

    Google Android 3.0 (Gingerbread) is rumored to be released sometime in Q4 this year. As Android 2.2 does not have official support for large resolution devices such as the 1024x600 the Notion Ink Adam, having an Android 3.0 based device should be more viable than a premature product based on Android 2.2.

    Shravan gave another update for the estimated price of the device:

    It is pretty surprising that he said the "pricing of all three devices lower than the basic model of the iPad ($499)." I expected the fully-loaded device to be closed to be above the $500 range with all the hardware included (10" pixel qi, tegra, 3g, 3.2 MP camera, etc). I suppose the hardware could still be subject to change.

    I'm beginning to really worry about these delays. Too many. Where there's smoke, there's fire. I hope this doesn't end up totally different then what people are expecting. They really need a home run to put themselves on the map.
