Fusion Garage’s JooJoo Tablet Begins Shipping Today, Priced at $499

March 23, 2010, By Atul Roach

While the US JooJoo Tablet fanatics were waiting for the Tablet to arrive in a couple of days, JooJoo has gone ahead and surprised everyone by changing the status from pre-order to shipping on its official website. The scheduled release date was March 25 and with the Tablet now shipping, it will be in American homes even before the highly anticipated Apple iPad.

JooJoo is currently accepting orders only in the US and the product has been given a price-tag of $499 which makes it all the more competitive when you take the iPad pricing into consideration.

The Tablet is more attractive (compared to the iPad) on a few counts as it gets a larger 12.1-inch which benefited from a a last minute UI update where a single touch will function as a mouse pointer while the double click will work as a scroll.

The 4GB storage may be the only drawback however, other attractions like 9 seconds of boot up time (thanks Intel Atom), HD video streaming and support for e-books and digital newspapers could make it a real winner. [via: Engadget]
