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.

""The user interface on the JooJoo can best be described as a Monet - very attractive from afar, but a total mess up close," they conclude. Major brownie points for employing a Monet reference, by the way."

Keep a few brownies. Someone's been watching Clueless.

Heh. A friend of mine said something similar about a car he has been working on for 8 years now. He is a perfectionist so he works on a part, then reworks it, and is never satisfied with it... I told him he should just shoot for "good."

He said "yeah, I'll fix it up to be a 20-footer... looks good as long as you don't get too close."

At some point you've gotta ship, I guess.

Plus Monet's paintings aren't exactly crap. There isn't a wasted brush stroke. Each one is perfectly placed. The guy was a genius. I'll buy as many monets for $500 as you'd sell me.


In fact, I'd love to someday create an actual monet interface. It would be Beautiful. ( Plus I could use it with my glasses off).
