Fusion Garage and the Grid10 tablet are dead, and good riddance Fusion Garage, the makers of the Grid10 and Grid4 devices, have vanished off the face of the earth, leaving customers empty-handed for devices they were supposed to receive in October.
The company was behind the epic fail JooJoo/CrunchPad but tried to re-invent itself this year with the Grid10 tablet, which featured their own Android-based OS, "Grid."

As of this week, the company's site is down and its PR firm has left them, citing that the company has been uncommunicative for weeks, leaving them in the dark, as well.

McGrath Power, the firm, says: "Unfortunately, none of our efforts have resulted in any communication from the company to the customers. Given all of this, we don't have any other choice but to cease working with Fusion Garage effective tomorrow."

Launched in August after an extensive marketing campaign, the Grid10 was supposed to sell for $499 and ship on October 1st, but the as October rolled around, the company delayed the product and slashed the price to $299, even before it shipped. No customers have ever received a Grid10, or the Grid4 smartphone. Additionally, Fusion Garage had promised anyone who purchased the JooJoo in 2009 a free Grid10, but it appears that was a lie, also.
