JooJoo arrives, is unboxed, is really real!

JooJoo arrives, is unboxed, is really real!

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.

Fusion Garage on Arrington suit: “sad rants of a person championing a losing cause”

Fusion Garage on Arrington suit: “sad rants of a person championing a losing cause”

The TechCrunch/Fusion Garage saga continues, and as predicted the lawsuit Michael Arrington brought against his former partners over the CrunchPad/JooJoo tablet is only the start of the mud-slinging.  Fusion Garage have released a public rebuttal to Arrington's comments, suggesting that they do, in fact, own the IP involved, that they have already received $3m in funding with another round imminent, and that the TechCrunch founder's complaints are naught but "the sad rants of a person championing a losing cause".

Orange Tabbee web-tablet gets video hands-on

While all eyes may be on the JooJoo/CrunchPad (and most editorial concentrating on skewering the home web-tablet segment) it's easy to forget that there are other devices out there, already on sale and offering just about everything the contentious slate promises.  One such example is the Orange Tabbee, announced back in April and on sale in France since June for €249 ($362).  Charbax caught up with the 7-inch tablet at LeWeb and shot some hands-on video.

TechCrunch file lawsuit over JooJoo

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".

eviGroup Wallet Android MID gets new design, status update

eviGroup Wallet Android MID gets new design, status update

eviGroup's Pad UMPC is all well and good, but we'd be lying if we said we weren't more interested in the French company's upcoming Android-based MID, the eviGroup Wallet.  The 5-inch touchscreen device was potentially going to arrive in France this month, but company CEO Nicholas Ruiz has confirmed that the process is turning out to be a little trickier than eviGroup expected.  The good news is that there's a new prototype - shown here on the right - which looks a lot less "iPhone inspired" and gains a front-facing webcam, and Ruiz reckons it's still on track for a January release.
