Hands On With The JooJoo Internet Tablet

Dec 9th, 2009 | By | Category: General, iPods & Portable Media Players

This is a quick preview of the Fusion Garage JooJoo Internet tablet.

The preview comes via Gizmodo, which has this to say about the upcoming $500 JooJoo:

The tablet actually handled pretty well, with browsing web pages, transitioning between tabs (windows) and opening up new web pages working fine. There’s an accelerometer in there to detect between vertical and horizontal orientations.

The body is solid, sturdy and graced with a bright 12-inch screen. The back is curved and made of a plastic that feels nice in your hand, and the whole thing doesn’t seem too heavy to prop up on a bed or a toilet.

In short, it’s an actual web browsing tablet that you’d be perfectly fine using.

The JooJoo looks pretty sexy, but it also betrays some horseless carriage thinking.

Based on what we’ve seen so far, it looks like Fusion Garage is trying to solve the problem of putting the Web into your lap, instead of creating the next web-enabled Internet platform. This means it may be a nice gadget, but it’s not going to be anything revolutionary.

If Apple ever releases it’s rumored iTablet, don’t expect them to make the same mistake.

What do you think of the JooJoo? Any interest in getting one?
