PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Ah, JooJoo, we hardly knew ye. That 0.2.4 firmware update did a number on your speed woes, but alas, it wasn't enough. Fusion Garage founder Chandrashekar Rathakrishnan told e27 that the tablet didn't meet sales expectations and that, despite his rant against the iPad business model, people apparently do want those 'non-web experiences', in his words. But like all good soap operas, this one still goes on: Rathakrishnan confirmed the company is still going, meaning there's at least one new project in the pipeline, and yes, there's also still a lawsuit that'll stay alive and kicking."

Which is more proof, if we needed it, that specs aren't the most important part of a product's design. The better specs and connectivity did it no good since *everything* had to be done on the web with that thing, and the faster processor was paired with a small battery giving it roughly 3 hours of battery which the constant need for connectivity shortened further. My netbook, by comparison, gets a good 12 hours and the iPad I know gets at least 10 depending on what you're doing at the time. It seemed like a rush product with very little actual thought put into it.
