Notion Ink has released the alpha build of Ice Cream Sandwich for the Adam. Because this is an alpha build and nowhere near a finished product, there's a good number of bugs and annoyances with this one. The camera doesn't work, nor does 3G, USB storage, USB flash drive, and the light sensor. There's also an issue with the tablet waking from sleep and issues with video playback and HDMI sound. But it's Ice Cream Sandwich, and Notion Ink has opened the test bed for anyone who wants to try.
In addition, a short blurb on their blog (Shravan is a master of the tease) about changes to the blog and other company news. Tucked in there is:
Post the mentioned public release, we will be starting another blog. It will focus only on development, and we will again see a new device coming to life. Unlike last time where the hardware was mostly done out-house, this time every resistor, IC, bus lane, etc is designed and selected on the very computer working on this blog. We will try to involve as many professionals as possible so the new blog can become a reference for new developments!
Read the link for more and download instructions, and hit the break for a long (18 minute) video demo.
