Fusion Garage slashes $200 from Grid10 tablet before it even launches

Fusion Garage’s first tablet reportedly received a grand total of 90 pre-orders before being discontinued, and it looks like the company’s sophomore effort isn’t doing much better. Fusion Garage hasn’t even begun selling the Grid10 tablet it unveiled at a fake press conference last month, but the former JooJoo maker has already dropped the device’s end user price by as much as 40%. Announced on August 15th, the Grid10 tablet features a 10.1-inch 1366 x 768-pixel display, a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset and the company’s proprietary Grid OS. Fusion Garage announced two versions of the slate during the unveiling: a $499 Wi-Fi version and a $599 model with 3G connectivity. Fast forward to today, and the devices are now just $299 and $399, respectively. There is no word on whether or not early pre-orders will be refunded the difference, and Fusion Garage said the tablet will launch on September 15th.
