The CrunchPad Is Resurrected as the Joojoo - Bits Blog - NYTimes.com

Perhaps a future TV mini-series…

For those of you who care most about how to get your hands on one of these, here’s what you need to know: the black tablet, with a 12.1-inch touch-screen, boots in nine seconds and connects to the Internet. It has no other applications — it’s just for browsing the Web — and a touch keyboard appears when the user needs it. The Joojoo will be available for preorder on Dec. 11 for $499 at TheJoojoo.com and will ship 8 to 10 weeks later, according to Fusion Garage, the company that is producing it.
