Remember Michael Arrington’s attempt at CrunchPad, which subsequently got aborted? Fusion Garage has now done that and it seems a successful bid. The new Internet pad that has been showcased by Fusion Garage is called the JooJoo and has the capability to boot up in 9 seconds.

To be made available for a cool $500, the JooJoo has the Internet as its app. With a boot up time of an amazing 9 seconds, it, in fact, throws to the wind all earlier belief that it would take at least 30 seconds or even 2 minutes. Fusion Garage plans to bring the JooJoo Internet tablet for sale online beginning December 11. The date is not far off.

To come with a 12.1 inch touchscreen, which is capable of displaying rich Internet content, the device will also stream HD video. Fusion garage has also incorporated a user interface, which it calls revolutionary. It comes with no pre-loaded apps whatsoever. Support for slide gestures, scrolling, e-books, digital newspapers and playback are the other capabilities it offers.

What we find interesting is that the JooJoo is a Net pad that has no physical buttons. The only button you might see is the on and off switch. Worth a try, we guess.
