come clean with its side of the story in regards to the CrunchPad debacle, and just unveiled its new Arrington-free version of the device: the JooJoo. The way Fusion Garage tells it, the device was already in the works at the time of the original TechCrunch post about the idea, and that Michael Arrington and co. made zero contributions to the development of the device. The device is much along the lines of what we'd been hearing: it runs a UNIX-based OS, boots straight to a web browser, weighs about 2.4 pounds and features a 12.1-inch capacitive screen. There are no physical buttons on the slate outside of the on-off switch, which taps into a 9 second boot time. Under the hood there's a 4GB SSD, accelerometer and about 5 hours of battery life. Pre-orders start on December 11th, with a dream-shattering $499 pricetag bringing this thing back into the realm of reality.
