Where to Buy

The Fusion Garage joojoo has a 12-inch screen with 1366x768 resolution. The web browsing tablet works very well for browsing web pages, transitioning between tabs and opening up new web pages. Though it doesn't have a physical keyboard or mouse, it does have a small keyboard that pops up on its screen that is usable for typing out addresses, but not a good idea for bloggers on the go or other users who want to do a lot of typing. The concept behind the Fusion Garage joojoo is that the "internet is the application", which means that the consumer cannot save anything to their tablet the consumer has very limited access to allocating the minimal space.

vsaxena911: #fusion_garage_joojoo LOL @ Yale. I wonder whether USB peripherals like a keyboard or mouse could be used with this; even though that would technically be defeating the point. Dec 9, 09

Yale: #fusion_garage_joojoo I can't stand closed hardware... and to a lesser extent closed software... But I love this. Everything about it. I want one. So badly. I want to sit in bed with this thing. I will love it forever. Dec 9, 09
