    Hmm, careful with that plastic. You may never see the product or your money ever again…

    “Sounds like its everything the iPad should have been…but wasn’t.”

    Except for that whole, you know…running apps thing. And the idea of paying a company that may or may not ship the product, who’s involved in a lawsuit over said product, the same money as an entry level iPad.

    No thanks. If it was $199 or $299…maybe.

    I’ll wait until I get to play with both devices before passing judgement, but with half the battery life and 60% more weight, I’m not as interested in this as I am in the iPad. Yeah the JooJoo has a bigger screen, camera, and flash, but 2.4 pounds? I think tablets need to be a lot lighter to be successful. Too bad neither device appears to have windowed multitasking.
