    iPad vs JooJoo

    Has anyone done much research on the JooJoo tablet? Engadget posted an update this morning:

    Fusion Garage CEO Chandra Rathakrishnan says that orders for the device actually went up following Apple's iPad announcement, although he unsurprisingly didn't reveal any actual numbers. Chandra did drop a few other interesting details, however, including word that the company with soon announce a partnership with a "major mobile phone player" that has a "significant" market share in Southeast Asia, and who will also supposedly take care of the manufacturing cost of the Joojoo. That's on top of an announcement of a new round of funding, which apparently totals somewhere south of $10 million. Still no word of a firm ship date for the device, of course, which still stands at the same 8-10 weeks that it did more than a month ago.

    Not sure why people are saying this is better than iPad.

    5hr battery life
    4GB storage
    JooJoo OS (new OS=no initial support)
    Similar price

    So, why? Just because it has Flash, USB, and storage expansion?

    Pfffffft. I'll take the support of the AppStore and an established product.

    Via BoyGeniusReport:

    JooJoo enters production, ships this month

    It might have legal issues galore thanks to Chandra Rathakrishnan’s legendary row with Michael Arrington, but the internet tablet formerly known as the CrunchPad has finally entered into production and should begin shipping later this month. To retail for $499 USD, the JooJoo features a 12.1″ multi-touch capacitive display with native resolution of 1366 x 768, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g, 4GB SSD, front-facing camera, accelerometer, support for Flash (HD Flash will be all systems go when 10.1 comes out of beta) as well as a bunch of givens like integrated speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack and USB port. Also announced today is Fusion Garage’s intent to open an app web store in which JooJoo owners will be able to grab whatever developers can make using some proprietary “but standards driven” APIs. Rathakrishnan et al are rather confident that their device will be able to take on competitors such as the HP Slate and Apple iPad, even going so far as to say of the later that the JooJoo is bigger, fully supports Flash (the real internet) and will beat its major competitors to the market, but one has to wonder what it’s all for in a day and age where most people are brand-conscious to the point where they’ll often turn away from something far better. We guess you have to start somewhere.

    It has some great specs however it still lacks one of the most important features of the iPad..

    The App Store!

    I do like that JooJoo is running Linux, so it will be easily hackable and I really like the larger screen.

    So, this will come down to the fact if they are built well and use decent hardware, the Linux community can really take the JooJoo pad and make some super neat stuff out of it.

    I'm looking forward to having both actually.
