PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In what is certainly entirely expected, I was wrong about the whole CrunchPad drama. I suspected it was nothing more than a publicity stunt, but as it turns out, Fusion Garage's side of the story confirmed that the break between them and Arrington is real. During a press conference today, Fusion Garage told their side of the story, while also officially introducing the CrunchPad Joo Joo.

Why the apple bash, I thought this was a story about a tablet? Does Apple make a tablet? Am I missing something? It did say it contained a Unix-like OS, but didn't mention OSX. Some people's children..
If it was an arm processor (a dual preferably) and ran moblin or chromeos I'd be all over it, even at $500, it'd be well worth it.

Probably because I mentioned the iPhone in my original comment merely to illustrate a point.
@Thom: Dude, you might want to see a doctor. You're getting a bit obsessive over the anti-apple rhetoric, to the point where it actually obstructs discussion. Let's not derail this into an Apple vs everyone else thread like so many others. My point about the iPhone was an example as it's a product that I'm familiar with (seeing as how I use one) that leaves this joo joo thing dead in the water. It was an example, ok? Substitute Android phone for iPhone if it makes you happy, the point will still be just as relevant. Hell, you could probably even substitute the Palm Pre into that sentence although I'm not certain of this.
This thing has less functionality than any other tablet out there, even ChromeOS is going to have at least some capabilities for ocal storage although probably not very much. There's no way, no way at all, that even a controlling company like Apple could release something with less functionality than this.

Don't forget that Thom recently bought an iPhone that I'm sure he'll reluctantly admit is teh awesome.

Yeah, the article says it "Runs UNIX web-based OS". What the dreck is that? Nobody apart from SCO uses the word "Unix" anymore (esp. when peddling products for consumers).

It seems as if they either didn't know what OS it was running, or that they want to reserve the right to change the OS.

Incidentally, "joo joo", depending on the tone of the speaker, means something like "yeah, whatever" in Finnish ;-).
