Skeptics balked when Apple announced that pricing for the iPad—a touch-screen tablet with a built-in browser and scores of apps for everything from productivity to e-book reading to gaming—would start at $499 (for 16GB). That's a lot of coin for a not-quite-computer. Now Fusion Garage's JooJoo, née Crunchpad, is finally here, and it, too, starts at $499 (direct). But it only offers only 4GB of storage (well, sort of—more on that later), has no apps, and is little more than a touch-screen-based Web browser with bookmarked icons. The inclusion of Flash support in the browser is one clear advantage over Apple's iPad ($699, ), but it is nevertheless a one-dimensional device. No one wants to pick on the little guy, but the JooJoo is overpriced, doesn't do very much, and doesn't do anything particularly well.\
