Android Central

We've been hearing plenty about the Grid 10 from TabCo as of late but as suspected -- it was nothing more then a fake company created by the folks at Fusion Garage. Yes, the folks who made the JooJoo. As it turns out, they're making use of the Android kernel on their newly announced Grid 10 tablet. But don't call it Android -- sure, it can run Android apps from anywhere but don't call it that.

The folks at Fusion Garage aren't even sure Android is popular, and they believe that Android tablets are all the same. So they've gone ahead and created Grid OS as they call and not only will it power their tablet but it will also power a new phone they've developed.

Grid 4

The phone will come in a 16GB costing you $399 US in Q4 while the tablet, running Grid 10 OS will be available for $499 with WiFi only and $599 with 3G connectivity options in place, any takers?

Hmmm Very interesting article.

Really sounded like he was taking some shots at Android. Don't call me a fanboy, but if he marks the first iPhone as the last true innovation in mobile communications and technology, then what has Apple been doing for four years?

And while there are similarities between the UI's, that's because it's a simple and effective means. While the Grid 10 UI does look appealing (to me) so does the Windows Phone UI. But different =/= better. I'm curious to see just how capable their tablet (and phone) is in terms of speed and functionality.

Lame take pot shots of android but still use android to run their devices. I wonder how long (if/when)this product last in the market.

They were definitely taking shots at Android...and weren't trying to hide it. What I'm wondering is how truely 'different' this is. What we saw were basically an alternative launcher app, alternative email app, alternative video/music app running on Android and running on similar hardware specs as most recent android tablets.

I'm sure there is more to it, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone writes a launcher to mimic their 'grid' very soon.

Overall, I have to admit, their product does look flashy but that doesn't nevessarily translate to better.

Grid is a joke.... they are using Android kernel and the "CEO the big fan of Apple" claims it's not an Android... i believe the Tablet will not last long in the market so let's wait and see who's gonna get it...

Kinda hard for me to care about this with quad core and Xoom 2 on the horizon.

You mean the people who bungled the launch of the first promising Linux tablet ever, and then rushed a sucky tablet to release so that people wouldn't think it was vaporware?

Yeah, I'd love to buy a tablet from them.
