Chandra Rathakrishnan is on stage right now telling us about a product that slipped out about an hour before the presentation…

Actually it’s two products.



Grid is a new operating system. A re-build of Android.

The first product is the Grid 10. It’s a 1366×768 resoution device using the Nvidia Tegra 2.

We’re tracking the Grid 10 in the database right now.

This isn’t a Google authorised OS which will mean Google maps, Android appstore.



Price: 499 Wifi-only ($100 extra or 3G)

Shipping 15th September. ordering available (not available as we write this)

As for the OS, it looks smooth, new and fun. Full-screen browsing is referred to as ‘Chromeless’ browsing.


The second product is a smartphone. Surprise!

This is the Grid 4


The live webcast demonstrated the user information.

Pricing was given at:

$399 unlocked. 16GB storage. Shipping in Q4

Operator availability will be announced nearer the launch.

Known specifications:

  • 4 inch screen
  • 800×480 resolution

  • GridOS operating system

Good news for Fusion Garage JooJoo customers. They will get a free upgrade to the Grid 10.

So, now the presentation is over and we have specs (in our database here) let’s talk about it! A forum has been created already.
