Fusion Garage, the small company behind the Grid10 tablet that was announced earlier this year, has mysteriously gone dark. Engadget first noted that the company’s website was down this past weekend and, while the site is now back online, it is still not fully functional. Many images aren’t loading and it’s impossible to buy any of the company’s products from its online store. When we tried to purchase a Grid10 tablet online the website said: “We are running out of stock. Thank you.” Worse still, Fusion Garage hasn’t posted any new messages to Twitter or Facebook recently and its public relations company has announced it is no longer working Fusion Garage.

“Unfortunately, none of our efforts have resulted in any communication from the company to the customers,” Fusion Garage’s PR agency said in a statement to Engadget. “Given all of this, we don’t have any other choice but to cease working with FG effective tomorrow.”
We’re always a bit sad when a company has high aspirations and then bites the dust like this, but it’s hard to be sympathetic when Fusion Garage fails to offer a public explanation for its disappearance. Fusion Garage first made its name after releasing the JooJoo tablet, originally expected to launch as the “CrunchPad,” but the tablet failed to gain consumer attention and it was discontinued after only 90 people pre-ordered the device.
