This tablet got months of publicity from then TechCrunch.com head Michael Arrington -- he called it the CrunchPad -- in the rumor-filled year before Apple unveiled its iPad. Arrington fell out with its manufacturer and designer, Fusion Garage, in September 2009, leading to several lawsuits.
It's not clear whether any customer units ever shipped after the company's claim of a March 2010 release, just before the original iPad shipped. But that didn't stop "Popular Mechanics" from calling it six months earlier "one of the 10 most brilliant products of 2009." Reviewers who actually used it hated it.
Fusion Garage killed the JooJoo in November 2010, and went bankrupt in January 2012.
