Despite good ideas and integration with Flash plugin, the touch pad by
Fusion Garage leaves a sense of unfinished business.
After all the fuss caused by the announcement and then release of the
iPad, each internet tablet comes to comparisons with Apple's, their life
is like that. The first tablet made early this year was Joojoo, by
Fusion Garage and not Apple. A model that we presented with prototype , a few weeks ago, and we
came to the editors in their final version. Is the Joojoo a credible
alternative to the iPad?
Come straight to the point: the Joojoo, final version, is not in our
view a finished product. As we will show, if the ideas are good and if
the finish material is very satisfactory, Fusion Garage frankly stumbles
on some software. But, as we have the positive attitude, let us talk
first about what works.
Finish almost as good as the iPad
From a physical standpoint and equipment, Fusion Garage has really led
his device: a shelf in sleek design, a metal shell that inspires
confidence and a bigger screen than the iPad and definition record 1366 x
768 pixels. The Joojoo poster, therefore, does more things on the web
pages, and the experience of movies is excellent in HD 720p on YouTube.
Tested with film Home of Yann-Arthus Bertrand and long clip of Lady Gaga
Telephone, the Joojoo decodes perfectly the HD format (due to its
Nvidia chip Ion) and provides an image rich in details. Viewing angles
are not as good as on screen since iPad is a computer screen, but
frankly there is not much to blame as to the quality of image.
Incomplete integration of Flash
Argument shocks Fusion Garage facing the iPad: the Joojoo has the Flash
plugin. Regarding banners and Flash applications base, everything is
fine: the pubs and animations appear carefree. For movies and to take
advantage of hardware decoding, the Singapore brand has developed a
drive home. And that's when it spoils.
Once detected a Flash video on YouTube, the poster image Joojoo logo and
the sharing site; if you click on "YouTube", you get the video decoding
software and the result is choppy if its HD (a few frames per second)
if you click on "Joojoo", a player starts and decoding is perfect. But
this player is basic as much so that we can not even move in the film
(nor back). Whether we pause or we will be stuffed again the first 50
minutes, it seems that the function must be implemented and it seems
that Fusion Garage is talking about it with Adobe.
It is bearable for short programs and that's all. The remote control has
made us zappers currently browsing: it's ugly but true. As for games,
many of them are not compatible because the keyboard does not have the
directional keys or Alt or Ctrl key emulating. Too bad.
Home interface: good ideas, poorly made
At the time the Android is developing at the speed of lightning, Fusion
Garage has opted for a GNU-Linux home. An understandable choice - the
