- Product Type: Internet Tablet
There were many issues from the start that made the JooJoo Tablet one of the most notable failed tech products of all time. First, Fusion Garage had countless issues with Michael Arrington, who they worked with on the tablet. He came up with the CrunchPad a year before Apple’s iPad was released. Fusion Garage was going to call this the CrunchPad but then in 2009 they informed Arrington they would be selling the product without him, leading to a lawsuit and delays. The JooJoo was released at a cost of $500, which was their first mistake. The goal was to compete with Apple’s iPad yet compared to the iPad, this tablet had a larger screen but looked worse overall. The software was horrific and everything was not just unintuitive but complicated to use. Leading it to be a complete failure on the market.
