Some of you may remember the whole scandal surrounding the JooJoo tablet, that at some point was called the CrunchPad, as its maker worked with TechCrunch and Michael Arrington. Well, now the device got a successor, the famous TabCo being revealed to be in fact this newcomer, also called the Grid 10.
After months of huge teasers, such as the planes writing on the sky or the skyscraper with lights spelling the date August 15 2011, it’s time to learn what TabCo really is. Unfortunately, it’s not Nokia, or HP, or Microsoft as some people speculated, instead it’s Fusion Garage and their latest project, the Grid 10. There’s also a smartphone in the making, called Grid 4.
What sets this apart from other tablets is the resolution, an incredible 1366 x 768 pixels of fun. The price of the Grid 10 is also pretty good, $499 and an extra $100, if you want 3G on the device. You’ll find the tablet on Amazon today and as far as the smartphone goes, the Grid 4 will come with a 4 inch display, 480 x 800 pixel resolution and 16GB of internal memory. The price will get $399.
Back to the tablet, the new Fusion Garage slate will pack dual core Tegra 2 processor and most likely 16 or 32 GB of storage. The platform on board is Grid OS, a pretty unique ecosystem, that seems to be fond of rows of flowing icons, that for a while reminded me of MeeGo in teasers.
