Fusion Garage to demo former CrunchPad, argue its case

CEO of Fusion Garage to tell firm's story

Fusion Garage chief Chandrasekar Rathakrishnan said late Thursday that he will hold a set of events to demonstrate the tablet formerly known as the CrunchPad and explain his company's side of the legal dispute over the device. The press briefings at San Francisco's St. Regis Hotel haven't been given a specific goal other than to show Fusion Garage's "side of the story" as well as to provide a glimpse of how it has progressed so far.

The primarily Singapore-based company, which also has a presence in the US, has largely been silent since a public split with TechCrunch, which had originated the project. CrunchPad development had been declared "dead" by the website after Rathakrishnan claimed that shareholder pressure had persuaded him to sell the touchscreen slate without TechCrunch's involvement, even though it had been involved from the beginning. The site's Michael Arrington has threatened lawsuits as his company has not only participated in development but reportedly still has some of the intellectual property behind it, which if true would make Fusion Garage's plans illegal.
