TechCrunch file lawsuit over JooJoo

As expected, Michael Arrington and TechCrunch have filed a federal lawsuit against Fusion Garage, over the hotly contested CrunchPad/JooJoo web-tablet project.  The lawsuit - which you can see here - accuses Fusion Garage of "violation of the Lanham Act, breach of fiduciary duty, misappropriation of business ideas, fraud and deceit, and unfair competition" and cites not only correspondence between the two organizations but content from Fusion Garage's now-deleted blog.  Arrington also runs through eight other points, including a passing spank to other blogs that "link to the [JooJoo] pre-sale site without disclosing [Fusion Garage's financial situation] to readers".

Wirelession W1060 $220 MID gets reviewed: mediocre web browsing

Wirelession W1060 $220 MID gets reviewed: mediocre web browsing

The CrunchPad may have met a premature demise, but that doesn't mean your web-tablet needs should go unsated.  The Witstech A81 MID might not have the CrunchPad's 12-inch touchscreen or Atom processor - it has a 7-inch 800 x 480 touchscreen and uses the same 600MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor as you'd find in the iPhone 3GS and Palm Pre - but it also comes in at $220 and is actually available to buy (albeit in sample form).  Over at Carrypad they've been reviewing the device in its rebadged Wirelession W1060 form.

ARBOR Tech M1255 Atom-based 12.1-inch touchscreen slate

Of the Atom-based touchscreen tablets, the ASUS Eee PC T91 is probably the best known.  If you want a slate-format device, though, your choices are more limited; the upcoming CrunchPad is supposedly based on Intel's Atom N270, but until that drops in November you'll have to head over to ARBOR Tech.  Their new M1255 packs the Atom N270 together with a 12.1-inch resistive touchscreen, 1GB of RAM, 60GB hard-drive and WiFi a/b/g.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 31 2009

Another week has come and gone and we are a week closer that that wondrous day parents look forward to all summer -- back to school! Lots of goings on this week and much of it was centered on mobile phones. Spotify announced that it would have an official app available on the iPhone that works for subscribers on Premium packages. Monday, a bit more light was shed on the much anticipated Android donut update, alas it's said to not be the OS 2.0 update we hoped for and won’t have multitouch.
