PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's tablet week on the internet, and now it's time for the Joo Joo to take centre stage again (after the iPad and HP's upcoming Slate). Engadget received its review unit last week, and yesterday, they published their review of the device. In what will surely not come as a total surprise to anyone, their conclusion is that while the hardware is decent and slick, the software is not.

If the hardware is indeed that good then sell us one without the OS at a discount (never happen but worth a try).

Or I can wait until they discount this due to lackluster sales, then maybe pick one up for cheap. Hopefully by then they will have a few people who have hacked it.

My problem is I just don't want to pay $500 for the iPad.

Same here, I can wait until it drops to 300. Then I will buy three and put win7, Android and ChromeOS on them ;)

That would still be cheaper than an iPad if you count in cost of the apps you dont need to buy and the services you dont have to pay for...

Not to mention that with three joojoos in front of you, you can take "multitasking" to a whole new level ;)

Or you can buy a thousand JooJoos and make a JooJoo based cluster. Don't mind, I'm just kidding...

JooJoo with Android sounds great. I don't know about Windows 7, maybe a cut down version of XP will be better. If Haiku had any interesting and usable apps I could be tempted about buying JooJoo and install Haiku on it, even if it isn't a tablet os.
