Notion Ink's been teasing the Adam II for well over a year now, and while the first generation left us cold, we're curious to see what the second attempt brings to the table. A series of renders recently surfaced that allegedly show the Android tablet, its accessories / packaging and a companion s

Notion Ink's first generation Adam tablet was an undoubtedly intriguing, but fairly flawed device. But while the company offered the promise of fixing up some of those concerns with gen two, we haven't heard all that much about the device since we saw a profile pic much earlier this year. Ever the

Although Rohan told us that his Adam tablet had cleared FCC testing a few weeks ago, it's not until today, just now actually, that we've seen the filing go public. For our troubles the FCC has done us the solid of a full-blown teardown. And honestly, it's not pretty. Perhaps we shouldn't be surpr
