JooJoo

A Linux-based tablet PC from Fusion Garage that was designed for Web browsing and watching HD videos. With a fast start-up time, the JooJoo sports a unique user interface that somewhat resembles an iPad. Although mired in litigation with former partners, the JooJoo went on sale in 2010 from its Web site www.thejoojoo.com. The unit weighs 2.4 pounds, has a large 12.1" touchscreen (1366x768), 4GB storage and Wi-Fi.
