Fusion Garage’s JooJoo tablet passes through the FCC rocking Intel Atom N270, Nvidia Ion, 3G
After a bitter battle with Michael Arrington and months of hype, the JooJoo tablet passed through the FCC today, signaling that the device will likely meet its already delayed March 25 release date. FCC documents for the JooJoo tablet were filed by Realtek Semiconductor Corp., whose RTL8191SE miniCard will power the JooJoo’s 802.11 b/g/n WiFi.
The User Manual for the JooJoo tablet reveals that the device will rely on an Intel Atom N270 processor and an Nvidia Ion GPU. While it’s a bit unfortunate that Fusion Garage didn’t decide to use the power-sipping Intel Atom N450, the addition of the Nvidia Ion will provide a big boost to the JooJoo’s HD video playback capabilities with only a limited impact on battery life.
It’s also interesting to note that the JooJoo tablet has a SIM card slot (below) on its side, and an internal 3G antenna. This confirms that, contrary to initial reports, 3G will definitely be an option on the JooJoo.
Earlier this month, Fusion Garage announced that the release date of the JooJoo tablet was pushed back to March 25 due to a “manufacturing error.” While this announcement caused some concern among Fusion Garage’s pre-order customers, today’s FCC filing gives a good indication that Fusion Garage will meet the March 25th release date.
