JooJoo Hands-on ahead of Apple iPad Tablet Release

We were all taken in when Engadget reported that the JooJoo tablet had arrived yesterday — we can tell you that it was no April Fool, this is backed up by a hands-on video below. The biggest news though is that it arrived just two days before the Apple iPad is released in stores.

Engadget has a full week with the JooJoo (formally the CrunchPad) to get a feel for the tablet. One thing is certain, it will have tough competition with the iPad — yes it does offer Flash Player support unlike the iPad, but the touchscreen is no where near as good.

Once we know more about the JooJoo we will update you, for now watch the video below.

In an interesting move, Fusion Garage coupled the Atom processor with NVIDIA's Ion graphics to aid in playing full screen Flash video (or for doing… something). Unfortunately, the software just isn't there yet. Currently the device is running Flash 10.1 beta 1, and won't have hardware-accelerated Flash video for a good while now (the timing is partly reliant on Adobe support, and is labelled as a "work in progress" by JooJoo). That means some regular-sized YouTube and Hulu works, as decoded by… Read more »
