CrunchPad Tablet Netbook Reborn as the JooJoo Web Tablet, Price Set At $500

So while the CrunchPad table netbook is history, the JooJoo web tablet project is full steam ahead, according to FusionGarage CEO Chandra Rathakrishnan. FusionGarage is moving forward with the project, as it is the sole owner of the IP and claims that it did all the work in the creation of such a tablet.

The actual device will be available this Friday, December 11, at http://www.thejoojoo.com, but unlike the original price of the CrunchPad, this 12.1″ computer will boast a $499 price tag instead.

The JooJoo’s OS is Unix-based and the web tablet will come with a 4 GB solid state drive and Wi-Fi capabilities. There is also supposedly “enough graphic power” for full high-def. video playback and the online time for wireless browsing is expected to be roughly five hours.

“JooJoo” is an African term for “magical,” but for $500, a web-based tablet with only Wi-Fi capabilities doesn’t sound so magical to me.

  4. JooJoo Tablets Get Pushed Back | NetbookBoards.com wrote:

    […] Fusion Garage appears to have made a mistake when it earlier announced its plan for the JooJoo Tablet to be shipped by the end of February.  With only 2 days left in the month, they have pushed back shipments a whole month back to March 25. Here’s the full release: “Earlier this month, Fusion Garage’s JooJoo Internet tablet went into full production with an anticipated on-time delivery to consumers at the end of February. Last week, the company became aware of a manufacturing issue involving JooJoo’s industry-first 12.1 inch capacitive touch screen which Fusion Garage was quickly able to diagnose and rectify. The company now forecasts the JooJoo will be sent to consumers on March 25. […]
