We have seen the JooJoo tablet floating around the Internet for quiet sometime now, way before the Ipad or its name change.
But ever since it was first demonstrated, the designers have been very secretive about what components power the JooJoo. But now thanks to the FCC’s documentation and photos it has been revealed that the JooJoo uses netbook components and the Nvidia Ion graphics.
When the JooJoo was shown playing back 1080p HD videos it was speculated that it either had a powerful processor or dedicated graphics.
It makes use of the common netbook processor, the Intel Atom N270 1.6Ghz, along with the Nvidia Ion graphics. This makes the JooJoo pretty much on par with a standard netbook with Ion.
It’s interesting that they are using the relatively old N270 processor, rather than the never N280 or N450 which uses less power. Also the original Ion featured here is known to be a power hog or sorts, (unlike the new Ion version with Optimus), we can only assume this is to keep costs down. Battery life it quoted at 5 hours.
The photos also show a 3G card, but it is unknown whether this will be active straight away.
As the JooJoo tablet runs standard netbook component it means it shouldn’t be too hard for users to install their own operating system such as Windows 7.
Also, unlike the iPad, Flash playback is possible along with a long list of supported media formats, including DivX, Xvid, WMA, MKV, OGG and many more.
It is expected to ship in just under two weeks.
