If you’ve preordered a JooJoo and wonder where it’s been, Fusion Garage has just revealed that shipments will be delayed until March 25th.
Evidently, their previous announcement promising February shipments was a bit premature, though I’m not sure anyone is shocked by the delay, given the controversy of the whole situation.
Earlier this month, Fusion Garage’s JooJoo Internet tablet went into full production with an anticipated on-time delivery to consumers at the end of February. Last week, the company became aware of a manufacturing issue involving JooJoo’s industry-first 12.1 inch capacitive touch screen which Fusion Garage was quickly able to diagnose and rectify. The company now forecasts the JooJoo will be sent to consumers on March 25.
The manufacturing issue centres on fine tuning the touch sensitivity of the capacitive screen. Fusion Garage will be providing all pre-order customers with a free JooJoo accessory to compensate for the delay in the delivery of their JooJoo.
