The JooJoo tablet, possibly big in Europe but not much else, now runs Windows 7 with touchscreen controls for some reason thanks to Joojoo Forums dweller darkdavy.
Though the shipping date for JooJoo, the underdog tablet, was recently pushed back to March 25, Fusion Garage isn't letting that time go to waste. They've overhauled the JooJoo's interface, expanded local video playback, and given its backplate a makeover.
