So the JooJoo has finally arrived.  It sounds like Fusion Garage is shipping the Internet tablets via air courier (Read: FedEx, DHL, UPS etc) direct from the factory in Taiwan, which is sure to cost a pretty penny.  Meeting the end-March deadline is crucial however, as the delivery of the product has been pushed back once from its original end-February date.

What’s more, the Apple iPad will start arriving in the hands of consumers from next Saturday onwards, leaving just one week for the JooJoo to maximize on its publicity.  So just how good will the JooJoo be?

Hopefully, I’ll be able to get my hands on a review unit soon.  Will write more about it then!
