Fusion Garage JooJoo Tablet Now Shipping To U.S.

Fusion Garage hasn't had the easiest time getting their JooJoo tablet out of the door, but no one ever said it was easy being a startup. The company whose tablet used to be known as the CrunchPad is finally shipping out, but only to customers who pre-ordered one from the beginning. We heard that units would begin shipping last month, but that date obviously slipped; still, it's pretty impressive to think that the JooJoo is shipping out before the iPad.

Pre-ordered units are leaving Asia now, and they should be distributed in America soon. If you have forgotten, the unit includes a 7" touch panel, Flash 10.1 support, a rechargeable battery and a $499 price tag. If you'd rather spend your dollars on a non-Apple tablet, there aren't any better options currently shipping; you can get your order in now, and it should ship within a few days to weeks after all the pre-order folks get their own.

New joojoo orders can be placed at https://thejoojoo.com/store at a cost of $499 USD. With its easy to use user interface, joojoo allows users to tap into Internet applications, news, music, high definition video, social media and Web services. The device boasts the largest capacitive touch screen of any device on the market, measuring 12.1 inches in length. joojoo is Flash 10.1 and Java compliant and comes equipped with a built-in, rechargeable lithium-polymer battery.
