If you are interested in tablets, surely the name of Adam Notion Ink will sound, which we have talked about on certain occasions. Well, Christmas is approaching, and Notion Ink has begun to pop its head. You have just launched your own website where we will find a lot of information, photos and videos. Now I summarize them.
The first part of the web focuses on explaining your vision of design. Notion Ink will be based primarily on geometric elements. According to Adam, all the lines and curves of the tablet follow the Golden Number, so we will have a tablet like Vitruvian Man.
The rounded finish of the tablet is because in this way it is easier to hold and better distribute weight. In addition, it provides 3rd inclination for a perfect viewing angle. Adam also specifies that being cylindrical is better for storing replaceable batteries, stereo speakers and serves as protection for your camera.
Talking about the camera is rotary to serve both for videoconferences, and to take photos or use augmented reality. The skeleton of the tablet is made of an alloy of magnesium and aluminum that makes it light and resistant at the same time.
They do not give us many clues in this regard. Apart from the still unknown version of Android (2.2? 2.3?), The Notion Ink will bring its own applications. On the web we can find a video of what will surely be a weather application:
App Meteorology Adam Notion Ink
and in the blog we find photos of what a file manager and a possible email client would be. The client would be called Mail’d and some characteristics would be:
- Alerts if you need to attach files (similar to the gMail function)
- Offline mode to check past emails.
- Cancel the shipment in the next x seconds (same as gMail)
As for the file manager, it would be called Sniffer and divide the screen into three sections as we see in the following photo. Something similar to Astro adapted to a Tablet.
This is what interests us, right? Official Features:

P.D: If you go to the official website, up to the right You will see some numbers. It seems to be a binary number and everything indicates that it is a countdown. Right now they mark 14 days so on December 9-10, something will happen …
He other number (Hexa?) I can't find out what it is … does anyone think of something? EDIT: Luisete tells us
About the code, D5720A80 is 3581020800 in decimal, which in UNIX timestamp is June 24, 2083. Looking around, it has occurred to an uncle to subtract it from timestamp 0 and leaves July 10, 1856 at 0: 00, which is the date of birth of Nikola Tesla. With this it is rumored out there that the “secret feature” is going to be the induction charger…
