When I first saw the 44-page reviewer's guide that shipped with Fusion Garage's Grid10 review unit, I knew at the very least that I was in for an interesting experience.
Now, I love new and innovative technology. Well, I'm supposed to love it at least. Truth is, I only love new and innovative when it's executed well. New and innovative can go stuff it if it's frustrating to use.
The Fusion Garage Grid10 tablet has a unique OS interface, but...OK, I won't bury the lead here. It's not well-executed.
The Grid Launcher UI is different, but--along with its two-finger swipe navigation--feels half-baked and unfinished. Disappointing for sure. However, there may be a silver lining here. Most of the problems I had with the Grid10 could be fixed with a software update.
Luckily, Fusion Garage sees it this way as well. According to the company, the Grid10 will see a significant update in early November that addresses at least a few of the issues (like the two-finger swipe) I detail in the full review. Check back in November to see how well the updates are implemented.
