Just in case you had any doubts that the JooJoo tablet was real, the FCC is here to help. The federal agency has published a series of documents related to the upcoming tablet, which is expected to begin shipping by the end of the month. Hot on the heels of Engadgets’ new photos of the JooJoo’s flashy new user interface, we can now take a peek beneath the tablet’s hood thanks to the FCC’s penchant for ripping the lid off of wireless devices.
So here’s what we know at this point. The tablet sports an Intel Atom N270 processor and NVIDIA ION graphics. It supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi and there’s a SIM card slot for an optional 3G module.
While JooJoo plans to sell the tablet with a custom Linux-based operating system, it has an x86-based processor which means it can run Windows, OS X, or pretty much any other OS you care to cram on its relatively small solid state disk. In fact, Wireless Goodness noticed that the JooJoo tablet appears to be running Windows Vista in one of the test setup photos.
The 5 hour battery is not user removable.
The JooJoo tablet is scheduled to start shipping on March 25th.
After all the drama surrounding the product since it was called Crunchpad, it’s good to see that Fusion Garage at least managed to make the JooJoo real.
Looks like they’re using a Mini PCIe SSD (top right corner). So should be easy enough to upgrade. No card reader visible in that photo though, but the USB port should make peripherals easy enough to add.
They also got bluetooth on the bottom there and both 3G and WiFi. So no lack of connectivity. But not sure it’s worth the price, have to wait for the full review…
4gb storage according to their own spec sheet seems pretty thin.
Also didn’t see mention of an SD card slot
you mean Windows 7, not Vista lol
Nope, Wireless Goodness said Win 7, but judging by the start menu, I’d say
it’s actually Windows Vista.
ah, u r correct sir- yeah definitely just for test setup, no way it will ship with Vista
