Fusion Garage goes belly up, owes creditors $40 million


When we last checked in on Fusion Garage, Brad had declared the company only mostly dead. Today, however, it appears as though it’s time to put on the toe tag and zip up the bag: Fusion Garage is done. On January 20th, the company’s creditors will be sitting down with representatives from PricewaterhouseCoopers and taking […]

Fusion Garage is only mostly dead

Fusion Garage Grid10 tablet

Fusion Garage may have lost its PR team, its lawyers, and for a brief period earlier this week its website. But the company’s not quite dead yet. The makers of the Grid10 and ill-fated JooJoo tablets are seeking additional funding to stay afloat.

Fusion Garage hits more speedbumps, Grid10 tablet may be as dead as the JooJoo

fusion garage grid10

Fusion Garage doesn’t have a great track record of delivering high quality products. Last year the company generated a lot of headlines with its JooJoo tablet (which started out its life as the CrunchPad before the company parted ways with TechCrunch founder Mike Arrington). When the tablet finally hit the market it was widely panned […]

Fusion Garage unveils the Grid 10 tablet, makes android look hard

Grid 10

Fusion Garage made a name for itself with the JooJoo tablet, a disappointing tablet that launched in 2010. Now the company is back with a new tablet called the Grid 10 and a smartphone called the Grid 4 — and they run a new Android-based operating system called GridOS. The Grid 10 goes up for […]

JooJoo maker Fusion Garage retools its business model

Fusion Garage is the company behind the rather unsuccessful JooJoo tablet computer. But rather than throw in the towel, CEO Chandra Rathakrishnan says the company is changing its approach. While he hasn’t confirmed the rumor that new models will run Google Android, it certainly seems likely given the new approach. The JooJoo was designed to […]

JooJoo version 2: Coming soon, with more Google Android?

JooJoo model 1

The JooJoo tablet may not have made a huge splash when it launched earlier this year, with some reports suggesting that as few as 90 tablets were sold during the pre-order phase.

The JooJoo tablet started as an ambitious project called the CrunchPad. The idea was to provide a tablet that was basically nothing but an interface for a web browser, allowing you to sit on the couch and surf, getting online in a matter of seconds. The finished product is pretty much just that — but […]

JooJoo tablet up for order in Europe

The JooJoo tablet is now available for purchase in Europe, where you can pick one up for €359 plus €15 for shipping. That’s actually not a bad deal, as it comes to a few bucks less than the $499 plus shipping you’d have to pay to get the tablet in the US or Canada. But […]

The iPad isn’t the only tablet shipping this week. And it’s not the only tablet that got ripped apart moments after it was released either. The handful of customers who pre-ordered the 12 inch JooJoo tablet instead of the similarly priced Apple iPad are starting to receive their orders. And Engadget has a photoset from […]

The joojoo tablet that Fusion Garage introduced to the world earlier this week is set to go on sale today. The tablet features a 12.1 inch capacitative touchscreen display and no keyboard.

Out of the ashes of the CrunchPad rises the $499 joojoo tablet


Remember that $200 internet tablet Michael Arrington wanted to introduce? Now it’s a $499 tablet and the company behind it wants nothing to do with Michael Arrington anymore. Arrington had a falling out with Fusion Garage recently, the company that developed the device’s operating system and which founder Chandra Rathakrishnan claims was behind all of […]

For much of the past year, TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington has been working with a small group on a pet project called the CrunchPad. It was designed to be a 12 inch tablet style device for surfing the web from a couch. While Arrington always said the device was supposed to be a web-only device […]
