Fusion Garage to ship JooJoo tablet globally
Fusion Garage, makers of the JooJoo tablet admitted on Tuesday that it had made a few mistakes in bringing its first and only product to market. The company acknowledged its product is far from an iPad killer, as some bloggers have stated. The company also blamed itself for its missed delivery dates and revised user interface that wasn't satisfactory.
The company promises the latter will soon be fixed, and the device will have the ability to play full screen HD videos.Fusion Garage believes it is far from death and can be successful simply because it isn't Apple, as that company's business model and closed platform are not what everybody prefers.
At the same time, the device has been made available to order from Canada and Europe in addition to the US, with more countries being added soon.
The JooJoo tablet sports a 12.1-inch touchscreen with a 1366x768 resolution and has an NVIDIA Ion chip that can accelerate 1080p video. The main CPU is a 1.6GHz Intel Atom. There is just 4GB of internal space and a focus on web content with Flash. It costs $499.
