The Crunchpad, that took Michael Arrington has been forced out of, is now called “JooJoo”.
I will say one thing, I don’t want to be walking around with anything called “JooJoo”.
Seriously, they might have done a lot better with TechCrunch, I don’t think this product is going to sell. Well, we will see but mark my words, at $499, this device ain’t gonna sell when I can get a 12-inch laptop for less.
11:47AM 12.1-inch capacitive touchscreen, no physical buttons beyond the on/off switch. Runs UNIX web-based OS, no pre-loaded apps, windows, or menus.11:46AM “JooJoo is not a tablet. It performs many tasks like a tablet, but it boots directly into a browser.” It booted in nine seconds.11:45AM “The reason we call it JooJoo is because it means magic, and this device delivers magic.”11:44AM Fusion Garage is calling the CrunchPad “JooJoo.”
Hardly magic I’d say, it’s just a dumb-12-inch touchscreen that has minimal capabilities.
