Fusion Garage JooJoo review

Verdict:

Irritating to use with a slew of missing features, the JooJoo tablet is a great bit of hardware controlled by a deeply-flawed operating system.

There's a part of us that really hoped the JooJoo tablet would be the iPad-killer it was hyped to be. To be fair, things get off to a pretty good start with the gorgeous hardware.

It's fair to say that, design wise, the JooJoo is every-bit as attractive as the iPad, with its glossy black bezel and sculptured back. On first glance many people in the office actually though that the JooJoo was an iPad, which is a high compliment indeed.

In some ways, the JooJoo is even better than the iPad. For starters, it's bigger with a 12.1in 1,366x768 widescreen touchscreen display. The extra screen size means that the JooJoo weighs slightly more than the iPad (1.1kg versus 0.7kg), but the weight's evenly distributed and we didn't find it difficult to hold. While Apple has opted for proprietary connectors, the JooJoo has a USB port at the bottom, which you can use for standard peripherals, such as a USB keyboard.

Turning it on initially had us impressed, with a fancy home screen that displays a list of what appear to be apps, such as for Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. However, these aren't Apps, but are rather icons that take you to the corresponding web page.

You see, for the JooJoo, Fusion Garage decided that there would be no Apps and that everything you view would be downloaded from the internet. So, in many ways the JooJoo is actually just a web browser. With Flash support it would appear, on a first glance, to be a great device for browsing the internet.
