So, if you were one of the handful of people out there to actually order (and receive) your JooJoo, we've got some exciting news for you! You can now install OS X on it.

Conspiracy theorists start your engines: either the JooJoo really is shipping, or Fusion Garage have crafted a special unit just for Engadget to unbox and are sitting, sniggering behind their hands at our ongoing gullibility.  Mere days before the iPad is set to hit shelves, the contentious JooJoo has finally arrived and - going by the demo video which you can see after the cut - it even works, too.
