Finally, after the Samsung Galaxy Tab, another decent Android tab comes to market. Notion Ink, a small start up, has been keeping a blog at http://notionink.wordpress.com/ for quite awhile highlighting their design process of a tablet that is:
giving the user the complete freedom to define the basics and not the industry leaders. Till now simple things like document editing, managing numbers and making presentation are considered art. Something which you learn, by practise. But, do the current tools actually make things easier for the general user? Shouldn’t the systems be designed for the 99% general users and not for the expert 1%?
Definitely sounds good. That’s always what I said I like about Linux and open source. It allows the creativity and other thoughts to make the marketplace, not control freaks like Jobs and Ballmer. We actually get choice and creativity. I can definitely see these Adam tablets in a K-12 classroom, and I hope we will soon see them in our County’s classroom. If not these, new tablets will continue to come out regularly, and they will get better and better. A great time for OSS!
