I'm thinking of ordering a JooJoo (formerly known as a Crunch Pad).

The reviews of this device were pretty bad, but only around the software that it was being shipped with, the look and feel of the hardware comments were pretty positive.

Runs an Atom 1.6ghz processor and an Nvidia Ion chipset so it's x86 compatiable and has a 12.1 " screen.

The idea is that I would put Android on it, and I've read a few forums around people putting Windows 7, Android etc on it.

You can't ship them direct to NZ but have friends in the UK who would forward it on for me, price wise looking at around $700 NZD + shipping.

Has anyone seen one in real life? know of anyone that has one in NZ?

There some cheap Android tablets already in New Zealand or you can order from DealExtreme with free shipping. Just look around our Android forum (just moved the discussion) and you will find out more.

Unless you do want to try running Android on some hardware where you don't have all the drivers, etc...

I wouldn't order that at all simply because I wouldn't want to support the guys who screwed over techpad
