Live Blogging from the TabCo Press Conference Starting @ 12:00 Eastern Time!

The entire AndroidPIT team is sitting at the edge of their seats in anticipation of the TabCo Press Conference Event in an undisclosed location. 

11:59 Nothing going on so far. The tension is rising....

 

12:04 So there we have it it's a tablet! And the people behind it are Fusion Garage! Who could've guessed it?

 

12:07 All Fusion Garage customers are getting a free tab! The CEO is trying to convince the public that they are a very different company. Apparently, this Chinese company is trying to show that they are a global company. They are trying to compete with the iPhone. And the tablet isn't Android! 

 

12:16 The new tablet is a reworked version of the Android OS with a different user interface. FusionGarage is definitely going to be in court over this. 

12:17 Home screen has been replaced by a grid system. 

 

12:21 Chrome-less browser with built-in Bing search. Now that's a smack in Google's face. 

12:23 All of the photos are displayed in albums made of photo piles. Just like on the iPad, by the way. 

12:24 The FusionGarage Grid comes at $499 with Wi-Fi and $599 with Wi-Fi and 3G. The Grid10 can be pre-ordered from Amazon.com. 

12:27 It's not just a tablet: there's also a Grid smartphone OS!

12:29 AndroidPIT opinion: This is just a UI -  not a new OS! 

12:32 This looks more like a home replacement app rather than an OS.

12:34 You can switch between the tabs with a wheel. 

12:35 $399 is the price for the Grid smartphone

12:37 CEO of Grid feels like there isn't enough innovation with Android. What? That's a major slap in the face. How can he say that?

12:38 Fake moderated questions. How pathetic!

And it's all over, folks! One thing is for sure: we're all extremely surprised about how awful this presentation was.

    This is the dumbest tablet I've ever seen. But what annoyed me most was how it was pretentiously and misleadingly unveiled as the answer to all mankind's technology wishes.
