Eden VII interface gets Leaves for multitasking

Notion Ink, the maker of the 10.1-inch Adam tablet, has just shown off the latest version of its Eden custom interface for the tablet. Eden VII was shown on an external display thanks to an HDMI connection. There is an added focus on multitasking, with Leaves turning compatible apps into big widgets.

Each Leaf performs basic tasks, such as Twitter updating, accessing feeds or browsing Facebook, that do not require full-blown apps. The Leaves sit side by side, as seen in the video below, with a horizontal finger swipe navigating through them. A Home or Alpha Leaf is on the far left, and shows all of the open Leaves and apps. The system is said to have kept intact the basic way Android handles apps but to have freed up RAM.

Each Leaf can be launched as a full app, which adds features and functionalities in most cases. The calculator, for example, performs basic functions in Leaf mode, but scientific functions are available when opened as a full app.

The Sniffer Leaf brings fast folder browsing, previewing and opening file functionality.

Also new in Eden VII is a small notification button in the upper left hand corner that blinks red. Once clicked, it expands to show full notifications.
Eden manages the dual cores of the Adam tablet, keeping only one online when less than 250MHz of processing power is required. When 500MHz is needed, the second one is turned on, though it's not clear how many cores are running between 250 and 500MHz.

Accessing the desktop from the Leaves view requires a two-finger swipe down, and going back to them from the desktop is via a two-finger swipe up. [via SlashGear]
