JooJoo 2 with Android and custom UI due 2011

Fusion Garage’s JooJoo tablet hasn’t exactly set the world alight – though it is keeping some lawyers in business – but the Singaporean start-up is already looking to the second-gen model.  According to Gizmodo, the new JooJoo is expected to arrive in early 2011, and use Android as its OS.  While it may not have access to the Android Market, Google’s policies depending, what Fusion Garage is working on is their own UI system which pulls together messaging and social networking.

For instance, the company intends to pull all messaging services – such as Gmail, Facebook messages and other accounts – into a single interface, rather than leaving the user hopping between various apps.  The second-gen JooJoo will be the first of a new range of devices, replacing the original slate.

As for the ongoing legal battle, Fusion Garage claims it’s having little effect on their daily operations.  Sales, meanwhile, are supposedly “lower than expected” but reasonable in Europe and Asia.  Still no publicly released numbers, however.
