Pros:

  • Huge, expansive screen. Benefits from Flash and USB support. Virtually button-free design
  • Nicely designed, sleek hardware. Responsive touchscreen. HD and — get ready for it — Flash support.
  • Large 12.1-inch 1,366-by-768-pixel touch screen. Browser supports Flash. No productivity apps, but you can use Google Docs for word processing and spreadsheet functions.

Cons:

  • Needs a firmware update, pronto. No offline apps. Glitchy interface. Touch-response is erratic. Poor built-in speaker. Not a laptop replacement
  • Twice the weight of an iPad with half the usability. Interface buggier than bucket full of cockroaches. No apps. Battery life is an unfunny joke. You're going to charge $500 for this thing with a straight face?

Without the iPad, the JooJoo would have had a shot. When it was first announced, Apple wasn't close to confirming the existence of a tablet. The slates already on the market were both overpriced and terrible. Netbooks were popular, but far from...

Irritating to use with a slew of missing features, the JooJoo tablet is a great bit of hardware controlled by a deeply-flawed operating system....

The JooJoo has great potential but there are far too many niggles to make it a truly useful tablet. Best avoided for now...

Flash support and multitasking are great, but this iPad wannabe is awkward and clunky in comparison. Even by Apple’s lofty standards, the number of iPads it has sold since launch is quite amazing. With sales outstripping that of all Mac computers...

While it is more comfortable to hold, we don't recommend you hoist the device with its 12.1-inch screen for too long. The Joojoo tips the scales at 1.1kg and its weight, combined with its large screen, means you'll want to lay it on a table or...

JooJoo vs iPad? It almost never happened. The release date kept being put back, back and back again, but the JooJoo (apparently pronounced 'YouYou') finally hit Europe a few weeks before the Apple iPad. Plenty of sites are reporting rumours of...

The JooJoo's story could have been the hackneyed one of an underdog: Unknown startup comes out of nowhere, creates a product that launches just before the iPad, and because of some clever moves and a little luck manages to topple Cupertino's...

Even if the Fusion Garage JooJoo gracefully executed its very limited capabilities, it would still be woefully overpriced. The fact that it has difficulty performing even basic tasks seals its sad...

There are just so many things we wish Fusion Garage did differently with the JooJoo. Even putting aside the fact that Apple's $499 iPad brings more to the table than just web browsing, the JooJoo is less portable, has a worse (if larger) screen, is...

FIRST LOOK: I had a chance to play with a pre-production model of Fusion Garage's JooJoo Web tablet, which has been covered in controversy over the last week or so. Enough with the drama--let's see how the thing...

Das Joojoo ist ein Tablet-PC mit einem 12,1 Zoll großen, spiegelnden Bildschirm, der eine Auflösung von 1366 x 768 Bildpunkten zeigt. Im Inneren werkelt wie beim WeTab und den meisten Netbooks ein Atom-Prozessor von Intel. Allerdings nutzt das...
