where is that funny pic that needs to be included with every joojoo deal rofl!

in all seriousness coming in now at 500 dollars would mean very very little, esp with the flood of other devices at this price point, 200 would have mean it grabbed people trying to be "fashionable" on the cheap

I'd have to see one in person but the specs look good.
The only thing really missing is N Wireless .

"beat the iPad to market" So. about 400 other tablet models did as well, going back to 1999 and even earlier. They all flopped.

Same price as iPad, but can't do H.264, can't do much 3D worth it's ass, a more limited market space, No WiFi N, and only 4GB of storage? gee, sounds like a GREAT deal! not.

Only 4 GB of memory? Zero apps? Zero peripherals? Zero GPS? Zero 3G? Zero ecosystem? And it still costs $500? What are these guys smokin'? Even at $300, I think this device would have a chance, but at $500, it will be a soon forgotten burp in the history of computing, alone with the Palm Foleo, the Apple Pippin and the WinCE wristwatch.

Oh I forgot, it has Flash, everyone will buy it for that reason alone.

It weighs 2-1/2 pounds. It has a short battery life. It has hardly any storage. It has NO apps. It has no universe of accessories. It has no GPS.

It will get run over by the iPad.

Why can't it do H.264? It's Windows 7, you can do way more codecs than any Apple device. Stupid fanboi.

Who would buy this? Seriously. No returns for opened merchandise. Warranty information, where is it and will the company even be around to honor it? Will it be in any stores so you can try before you buy? You would have to be a grade-A sucker with $500 to blow to buy this thing.

"a Web-centric OS with a boot time of 9 seconds" sure doesn't sound like Win 7 to me!

Browser base OS?.. hmm... guess... no Win7 for it... does that means.... no multi-tasking...?... or wait, they did not mention anything about App, so I guess multi-tasking is not necessary...;)

It is good that it does come w/ flash support, but there was no mention of e-books. From its website, it just sounds like a portable bigger screen web browser, and a bigger screen media player (HD video and music)

It is fine if it is around $200 mark, but with $499 price tag?.. they are really asking too much.

Not even close to the quality of an Ipad and without App. store compatability. If it doesn't say Ipad than it's just another wannabe tablet. Go Ipad.......

A buddy of mine is on the JooJoo development team and he said this is a piece of trash. The screen is so dim. They had to do camera tricks to make it pops in prints. The battery only lasts about 1.5 hours with web surfing time because of the 12 inch screen. Watching video only lasts about 40 minutes max.

Originally it was supposed to price at $200 dollars but they jacked up the price to trick people that it is a quality product but in fact it is really not.

It also crashed constantly, watching Flash stuffs. Really awful product.

Either way, product quality aside, you would feel silly saying the names out loud in public. Seriously, Joo Joo?

I think this price increase from $200 to $500 might be the reason the first guy cited "greed" as the reason for leaving the team and going solo. It basically priced itself out of the market!

babybelugaPOST THE CAVEMAN PICTURE!


babybeluga is right. Please Jane, would you be so kind to add the picture of caveman Chandra to this article? It certainly fits the news. I'm pretty sure some of the commenters haven't followed previous news about the TechCrunch and Fusion Garage Drama. Nevertheless, Chandra's pictures is a must for this article.

If adding Chandra's image is not possible, at least a Geico Caveman picture will do the trick. Somehow it resembles the Fusion Garage's CEO.

Totally agree, how the price ended in the 500-ish mark? I cannot blame Chandra for this one (insert some comment about a caveman's lack of knowledge in marketing stuff here). Let'see if FG paves some success out of this gadget.
