from the DEMO, it looks like a device that is good for surfing website only.

all the demo-ed 'Apps' are basically shortcut to website, like Youtube, Tweeter, Times, etc

wonder if there is any more soild demo on actual working apps. very basic stuff like , Calendar , Contacts, Mail, Maps. Hope it won't point "Calendar" to "Google Calendar"



I did read the whole article and the last para
"Mr. Arrington had collaborated with Fusion Garage till November last year and had some controversies with Mr. Chandrasekar regarding TechCrunch.

simple google will show:
http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/12/11...onal-thoughts/

"Thursday afternoon we filed a lawsuit against Fusion Garage in the Northern District of California Federal court. The causes of action include Fraud and Deceit, Misappropriation of Business Ideas, Breach of Fiduciary Duty, Unfair Competitition and Violations of the Lanham Act."

"Fusion Garage is, and always has been, a company on the edge of going out of business. "

"The founder of Fusion Garage, Chandrasekar Rathakrishnan, isnít a good guy. He has been caught plagiarizing articles. His previous company Radixs disintegrated in shareholder disputes and angry employees. We didnít learn about this until last Summer because Singapore media, including blogs, are largely controlled by the government. Embarrassing stuff just isnít reported. But weíve spoken to plenty of people associated with the company, and their statements will be included in the lawsuit. Chandra and Fusion Garage have shown a long term pattern of deceit in their business dealings. There is no reason to think that anything will change now."


Yes you would trust Mr. Chandrasekar Rathakrishnan to fix these issues in the final production model.

Did you pre-order by any chance?
