The Genius and Slight Flaw of the Camera Position on Adam

     Right on the Notion Ink website they praise how they positioned the camera on the Adam. It's in the corner so you can video chat in both landscape and portrait modes. Not to mention the fact that the thing swivels! While trying to use the camera in portrait mode I noticed a slight design flaw. The hardware buttons are on the opposite side of the device. This makes it very easy to press them while using the camera in portrait since your hands are generally at the bottom of the device to hold it upright. You could flip it around so that the buttons are at top, but the the camera is at the bottom. This is a very nit picky point, but I felt it worth mentioning. Hopefully this won't be an issue for Adam 2, because Honeycomb doesn't use hardware buttons.
