Could TabCo be Fusion Garage? Update: Yes they were

| August 11, 2011 | 32 Replies

On our post regarding the TabCo event registration, Oho commented about the possibility of TabCo being Fusion Garage. I’ve done some digging and he may be on to something. The JooJoo has a back design similiar to the one we have seen in TabCo videos. Image Source: Endgadget & TabCo Fusion Garage’s new tablet “Grid 10” has just passed FCC and the schematics look quite promising. (Promising in terms of potentially being TabCo’s product.) The name of the tablet itself “Grid 10” has been reported to also be the original name for the video of TabCo’s UI sneek peak. Again, we see that bar on the back present in both the FCC image and the TabCo video screenshot. Here’s the FCC image: On the Software side of things, I have more doubts. The UI on JooJoo doesn’t look like it could be similar to what we saw in the Sneek Peak of TabCo’s UI. By similar, I’m referring to the use of the menu bar. It looks like it could be derived from the same UX, but that is just speculation. The TabCo Menu bar looks more like what we would expect to come from MeeGo. I’ve put a comparison photo of the UI from Fusion Garage’s first device and the one TabCo gave us a glimpse of. Reports are that the “Grid 10” or “JooJoo 2”, will run on Android. This is the only thing that is drawing some doubts. Whether or not this company is Fusion Garage, Nokia, Intel, or even just simply TabCo, they have raised a lot of attention. If they can manage to bring an innovative tablet to the market they may do well. They definitely have the right marketing approach. Jay: Plus when the video for TabCo UI was first shown, it was titled, “The Grid Teaser” after which it was promptly removed and replaced. If it is JooJoo, I’m certainly NOT interested. Cheers Oho for the tip! UPDATE: TabCo are Fusion Garage!  Michael
