If you ask us, the whole Adam
tablet is a concept until Notion Ink delivers something other than promises, but things are looking up for the less jaded among you. Rohan Shravan has updated the world on the Adam's latest condition, disclosing a new replaceable battery 'concept' and the addition of a comic book store. We're not sure whether that means the final retail unit will or won't have a user-swappable cell, but at least we now know that both the Pixel Qi- and LCD-equipped variants of the Adam will share one body design. The switch that turns off the Pixel Qi
backlight will do the same for the LCD model, saving battery power when you're either downloading or listening to the Engadget podcast
. We're also told things are moving faster than originally scheduled
and the FCC should get a look at this long-awaited tablet a week early. As to the rest of us? Who knows, but maybe there is
a tablet god.
