JooJoo tablet offered to Brits

12in iPad alternative, anyone?

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Fusion Garage has made its 12in Atom-based tablet, the JooJoo, available to buyers outside the US.

UK residents can now order the large iPad alternative for £319 plus £15 postage and packing - a grand total of £334, which is roughly what the most basic 9in iPad is expected to retail for.

The JooJoo: sporting a 12in touchscreen and an Atom N270 processor

Apple, however, is believed to have sold more than a million iPads whereas Fusion Garage has managed to sell somewhere in excess of 64 units, if an email sent out to pre-order customers and which named them all is to be taken at face value. The email was made public by blog Uneasy Silence.

That was earlier this month, and FG may have sold a few more since then.

The JooJoo is the tablet originally expected to be marketed as the CruchPad and the subject of a very public spat between Fusion Garage and CrunchPad orginator TechCrunch blogger Michael Arrington. Both sides are currently arguing it out via m'learned friends.
