    I already got in Hand the JooJoo and the device is really ready to come out, i guess they wait the result from the US justice where Michael Arrigton put them

    The only weak point i found is the processor speed and the weight (of course the price need to be adjust) but i believe this device can find some customer ..

    personally i really prefer th Ipad possibility especially due to large choice of App's and the security about the update Apple will ensure and i guess for most of us is the same

    All these windows tablets will run into the same problem; they run Windows, Chrome, or Android. This IS NOT saying that they have a bad operating system; it is to say they have an operating system poorly adapted to tablet computing.

    The Windows machines will be nearly impossible to select the right command in the interface with your finger, and, as anyone that has had to do this with a stylus knows, the stylus experience on a touch capable screen is not a good experience. You cannot rest your hand on the screen, because if you do, you start sending odd signals to the computer.

    The Android ones have a better chance of competing (I think better then even Chrome) since Android is a touch interface operating system. OTOH, I thing that Google is going to have to make the operating system scaleable for the slates to work as effectively as the iPad will.

    Then there is the lack of apps that are scaleable on Android, since this was designed to be an OS for phones, not large Touchscreen MIDs. The developers will need to get in there and fix that (and since Google hasn't altered the operating system to scale like iPhone OS 3.2 does, it will be a while until they can get to that). With Chrome on the way, I am not sure if Google will even expend the resources to make this happen. Android is supposed to be for phones, Chrome is for Netbooks. What little I have seen of Chrome, in its current iteration, it is as poorly suited to a touchscreen device as Window 7 is out of the box.

    This gives Apple a comfortable lead against the competition. I want to see others come out with Slates, because this will drive features and capabilities in iPad 2.0 and 3.0.

    I use an Android phone, and, when compared to an iPhone, it crashes all the time. My buddy's iPhone has crashed once in the last year. Android needs some refinement, iPhone needs some features, but the user experience favors the iPhone. Unless Google works to fix its software, the user experience will favor the iPad over Android. Unless someone at Microsoft comes up with a Touch Interface for Windows 7 (kind of like what HP did for their TouchSmart computer), slates running Windows 7 are going to be a terrible experience.

    That is what Apple has done so successfully over the years, make the interface as intuitive as possible. By choosing the iPhone OS to base the iPad on, they have once again gotten the technology as far out of our way as possible. Competitors in this space have a lot of work to do to get their user experience to match what the iPad will give you out of the box.

    In the end, it isn't going to come down to hardware; anyone can build a MID with a touchscreen. It is going to come down to the interface on that screen, how well it adapts to using a finger on it, and what applications are there for it. And those applications are going to have to have interfaces designed for touch as well. So far, only Apple has considered this problem end to end. The competition has to many vendors to present a complete end to end solution in a timely manner. I wouldn't expect any respectable competition for at least three years.

    The JooJoo looks like it will give you an excellent browser experience but JooJoo's biggest Achilles' heal might be it's battery life. According to their tech spec JooJoo will last 5 hours on wifi; not a whole lot. Remember, this is their tech spec so real life battery life may be less.

    I was into this hype, but in the end I feel that none of these will sell because tablets are a niche item. If one can tote a tablet around one can tote a laptop. These have been brought to the market before with no dice. Does the Ipad have expandable memory or storage?

    The differance this time Terry is the full multi-touch (and multi-finger) reading surface. Before tablets had either very clunkey single press touch screens with no dragging ability and/or were styles/pen driven. This meant no QWERTY typing, just glorified hunt and peck. That or variable quality hand recognition software (anyone remember the Newton?). Most if not all of the upcoming "slate" devices have full touch surfaces.

    I think for anyone who has done remote desktop control through the iPhone/iPod, there is very little question about the quality of the multi-touch sensors (and in the iPhone/iPod little question about the ability of the OS to process that input). The question for now is, what more can it do that a Netbook with QWERTY keyboard and little mouse nub/tackpad does. That goes for all the "slate" devices. The follow-up question is "who does what, and how much better then the others."

    As to memory expansion on the iPad, there is an attachable SD card reader accsessor. Altough it is unclear how it's data will be acessed or if you can on/off load other items besides pictures and movies taken with a camera.

    In response to : Do i have de the right to have some serious doubt's ...

    We are a new company obviously, because the product we are selling is the Shenzhen Smit MID-560, google that. We intend to rebrand it with Enso and build an high quality customer care, and technical support in proper English. This is somewhat Chinese companies will achieve in the future. Now we are in the process of building a business, a website, a reputation, you won't find much on google right now, since we just started out. Anyway your concerns do make sense because it is generally safer to do business with larger, established companies. We are going to put our best efforts on this, and ultimately, transparency and honesty. Please visit our website in the next weeks for more informations. The Chinese New Year holiday are slowing business down a bit, and i right now i have got some info but couldn't yet get the lot i have ordered, there is some delay on the schedule. But i have examined well the videos, visited the factory, and talked with Mr Philip Zhou, whom works for the Shenzhen Smit company ( the manufacturer ) and ensure everything is genuine and real. So, it is definitely you choice what to buy and from who to buy.

    Thanks for your insightful question. Alberto Armandi

    P.S. You can also by phone, the numbers are listed on the website. So you if you want to have a talk for suggestions, i am glad to listen to you, or just add my skype at jjfarren

    RACISM was not the main point

    Hi, thanks for your answer. Racism was never meant to take its way into what i said. Racism is completely out of my mind. I am aware of the scammers out there, i am sorry for the poor work on the website, but that will change soon. I just can't cope with everything lately. And about the funding, we have some, not much, but enough to start up.

    Glad to know somebody in the industry too, my skype is jjfarren, please add me if you like to. Thanks a lot for your great insights.

    Hi Alberto (Enso),

    I already see you're selling offer in E-Bay, i didn't talk about that because as you clearly say the products is not yet available and i also guess you will rebrand it.

    What i can say about you're post here is you start too early to publish t you're products.

    I can say that based on my long experience in electronic's development from the working sample to the mass production have an ocean you cannot cross by swimming, i will give you an example last year we start to develop a Car hand-free for Iphone (yet no competitor) in a well know technology but as my main target is affordable price we take face at some technical disturbance that took us 2,5 month for totally solve it on this project work 4 qualify engineer, but until i don't have the top quality the market are looking for i refuse to sell it like this even some of my customer test working sample and they say the quality is acceptable i refuse to sell it, why i don't publish any information and refuse to sell it, only because it's easy to make a buzz but it more fast to destroy a reputation ...

    My advice can be something like this: If you believe in you're products wait to have it, to test it before start the promotion you have more to win by acting too fast ...
