What I find interesting is they feel it's important to control (sensor) feedback. I went to their forum and they won't even let people register with the site so they can post. Those that registered are likely people that registered before there was any real competition in the Android tablet space.
Anyway, at least my 12 year old gets some entertainment value out of the Adam. Meanwhile I get more entertainment value from my Asus Transformer and am actually able to be productive when using the device for work.
I am attempting to apply the early adopter lesson to my phone situation. I have an Evo 4G and want a phone with better battery life (#1 requirement) as well as better battery life and improved performance. I have skipped the Evo 3D and will likely skip the Photon unless a real review indicates significantly better battery life. At this point it looks like the Galaxy S II or the Nexus Prime will be the next purchase.
I have always pulled the trigger early so for me to skip the Evo 3D and the Photon is an indicator that the Adam lesson is serving me well.
Hope I have helped someone avoid the Adam trap.
Sad but true: I actually like 'the little guy' and wish the Adam was a better product. I don't mind that battery life is a little short and it's a little thick. If the device had a better screen and that screen was responsive I would have been receptive. Their unique user interface is a classic 'too little too late' story and their lack of Honeycomb is a show stopper. I understand that Honeycomb isn't open source and Google hasn't given them what they need but I am tired of bearing the price for who they are and what they can't seem to accomplish.
Bottom line the Adam was a first rate device in Feb. 2011. A second rate device in May of 2011 and doesn't even have a place in the top 5 today for the price. They better do something fast or their future looks dim indeed.
BTW, a blog post with real content on their site every 3 weeks (rough average) doesn't help their case either. LOL
Last minute thought: I had the Viewsonic G-Tab, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Adam and finally the Transformer. Looking back the Samsung Galaxy Tab was a noticeably better experience than the Adam. I have seen the Galaxy tabs cheap on woot.com and other sites lately so I would recommend one of them over the Adam for the following reasons.
Better build quality.
MUCH better screen
ROM support (multiple updates including new Android versions)
Great hacker community support
Great accessories. (Cases, keyboards etc.)
In fact the only reason I gave up my Samsung Galaxy tab was because I couldn't, at the time, find a good keyboard case combination. I really needed the ability to type on a real keyboard during meetings or doing RTP.
