Amazon Kindle is most unloved Christmas present in the UK

Amazon Kindle is most unloved Christmas present in the UK
How many of you out there know of someone who has yet to open his or her Christmas presents? Well, that might sound rather strange to most of us who cannot wait to tear those presents out from their wrapping paper prison, but here is another rather disturbing statistic if you are an Amazon executive. It seems that in the UK, the Amazon Kindle is the most unused Christmas present, where 22% of folks in a survey who received it as a gift have not used it yet, leaving it as a rather expensive paperweight. Not only that, out of the 48% of people surveyed (no idea on how large the total pool is, and how true to real life demographics the figures represent) who have yet to use their Christmas presents after opening them, 9% of them who received the iPad 2 did not bother to even use it. Sounds rather ridiculous, no?

I guess if it was the Amazon Kindle Fire that was unwrapped, the statistics would have seen the pecking order change in terms of unused Christmas presents. Any idea what was going through these peoples' minds when they looked at the Apple iPad after unwrapping it?

Notion Ink Adam 2 tablet announced

Notion Ink Adam 2 tablet announced
Looking forward to the sequel tablet to the Adam from Notion Ink? Well it looks like the tablet is in its planning stages. The folks over at Notion Ink have announced on its blog its new partnership with Texas instruments for its next generation Adam 2 tablets. The Adam 2 will be using an OMAP44xx processor along with other Texas Instruments components like Wi-Link 7.0 and Phoenix Audio Power Amplifiers.

The tablet will be designed specifically for “best power performance and multi-tasking experience” and will ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. No word on the other features of the tablet (i.e. PixelQi display etc) but I guess it's too early to tell. Either way, let's hope the second tablet from Notion Ink will help put the company's name on the map as it is still a relatively unknown brand at this point in time.

Anybody excited about the Notion Ink Adam 2?
