Aside from being touted as one of the most enticing contenders against the iPad across the tech blogosphere, the Notion Ink Adam also holds the distinct honor of being right up there with Duke Nukem Forever on the list of things that would seemingly never see the light of day. But just as it was recently announced the Duke would ride again, the Adam, too, is getting firmer in its release date. Continued delays have given way to a production schedule that is seven days ahead of what was originally anticipated.
Through a blog post updating the status of the Adam it was revealed that the tablet would be hitting the FCC for certification a full week early. Along with the announcement came news that the slate will feature a removable battery, a sure to be touted advantage over the iPad’s non-serviceable power supply. Also in an effort to save power the Adam’s Pixel Qi display will feature an independent manual on/off switch.
If everything pans out we could be seeing the Notion Ink Adam just in time to throw down with the other big name tablets dropping this holiday season, so we have our fingers crossed.
