PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The Joo Joo tablet has been delayed by one month. "Just a day after we pondered the shipping status of Fusion Garage's JooJoo tablet, the company's come clean and told us shipping will delayed to March 25 because of a manufacturing issue with the tablet's 12.1-inch capacitive screen. Yep, it looks like it's going to be at least 27 more days until you've got a JooJoo of your very own - which means, of course, that Fusion Garage will now be trying to launch this thing during the same week Apple's scheduled to launch the iPad."

Why? I'm looking forward to the Joo Joo far more than a stretched iPhone.

"it's bulky compared to the svelte iPad, offers half the battery life and a fourth of the storage of the cheapest iPad. And it doesn't offer 3G or access to anything like Apple's 140,000 apps"

They were screwed from the beginning anyway. A giant, $500 web browser? With no 3g or the possibility of running anything native? Stupid.

Shouldn't that in their case be described as, quoting Douglas Adams, "one whole joojooflop situation" ?
