Notion Ink Apps Ported For G-Tab
If you’ve been looking over enviously at the Notion Ink Adam tablet applications, you’ll be interested to hear that XDA forum member gojimi is currently porting over the apps over to the G-Tablet.
Theoretically, the apps should work on any ROM and so far, the XDA member has posted up 7 applications.
The collection to date includes the Notion Ink Canvas app, Calculator app, stock Browser app, Calendar, Keyboard, Sniffer app, Notion Ink Mail and the tablet version of QuickOffice.

For more information including screenshots of each application, head on over to the forum thread.
