Leslie Katz reports on CNET’s Crave that the JooJoo tablet has been delayed due to display issues.
due to an issue that “centers on fine tuning the touch sensitivity of the capacitive screen,” according to the manufacturer, it’s now expected to be sent March 25. Preorder customers will get a free JooJoo accessory to compensate for the delay, Fusion Garage added.
The JooJoo tablet was supposed to ship at the end of last month but now won’t ship to customers until the end of this month. It’s a good thing that those that pre-ordered are going to get a freebie but how does Fusion Garage expect to make this device a success when the only thing it had going for it over the iPad was a much earlier ship date? At this point the ship dates are so close together that no one in their right mind would order the JooJoo tablet to recieve it less than two weeks before the iPad is released.
I’m willing to bet that anyone who hasn’t ordered a JooJoo already and were seriously considering it will end up with an iPad instead.
