JooJoo tablet tips up at FCC with 3G, NVIDIA Ion

JooJoo's 1080p explained through new GPU

The FCC in a filing published Thursday has revealed a number of longstanding mysteries about the JooJoo tablet. Despite Fusion Garage being reluctant to explain the hardware in detail before launch, its pre-release manual shows the device using an NVIDIA Ion chipset. The faster graphics are key to its ability to play 1080p video and will give it hardware-accelerated Flash 10.1 when ready.

The device on show in the manual also has a 3G modem and the necessary SIM card slot, although chief executive Chandra Rathakrishnan has previously said that only Wi-Fi would be available on launch. Other details, like the 1.6GHz Atom processor, were already known if not always official; testbed photos oddly show the device running Windows Vista rather than its usual Linux, but this is more likely the government booting a custom test environment rather than indicators of a Windows model.

Fusion Garage is slated to ship the JooJoo on March 25th for $499. [via Engadget]
