This is an easy buy at the discounted price for fans of Minesweeper type games. For that matter, it is a worthy purchase, even if you don’t know much about the genre. The graphics are great and it has a highly stylized steampunk look. At $3.99, it is better suited for fans of these types of pu...

It would have been very easy for Fusion Garage to simply slap Honeycomb onto the Grid10 and leave it at that, so we applaud the company for taking a huge leap in creating its own user interface. And to be sure, there are a lot of great innovations, such as the smart browser controls and contextual m...

This is an easy buy at the discounted price for fans of Minesweeper type games. For that matter, it is a worthy purchase, even if you don’t know much about the genre. The graphics are great and it has a highly stylized steampunk look. At $3.99, it is better suited for fans of these types of puzzle games, and a great title, even at full price. This game is available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Download it in the App Store today.

This is pretty simple: although Fusion Garage is to be commended for developing a novel new operating system with a slew of interesting and innovative UI features — something few other companies have ever done — the Grid10 as an integrated package of hardware and software simply doesn’t measure up. The display alone is so poor as to utterly ruin the user experience, and Grid OS lacks the level of polish, stability, and performance it needs to compete against iOS and Honeycomb. (And it certainly doesn’t have the price tag to match up with the Amazon Kindle Fire.) That said, it’s clear Fusion Garage (and its mysterious investors) are committed to developing a serious tablet competitor — we’ll see what another year brings.

Though innovative, Fusion Garage's Grid10 tablet ultimately is severely held back by the user interface of its GridOS. This complex, inefficient UI, with its ridiculously unnecessary two-finger swipe navigation, is clunky to use, performs sluggishly, and feels unfinished. There is potential here, but not enough warrant recommending this tablet.Also, the Grid10 has terribly spotty Wi-Fi connection rates and an insultingly low-quality camera, and is really uncomfortable to hold. The fact that Fusion Garage is charging $300 for this tablet is offensive. There are much better ways to spend $300 on a tablet.

Let’s put aside the software/performance issues for a second. If that wasn’t holding the Grid10 back, would I recommend it to anyone? It’s only $299 — $200 less than the iPad and most Android Honeycomb tablets — nicely designed, has a high resolution display, a nice user interface, and will run many popular apps. Despite these pros, I’m don’t see a big advantage over Android tablets here. The Grid10 doesn’t do much that the tablet next door can’t. And it has enough drawbacks to give me serious pause. I can’t see it doing well amongst mainstream users, though hard core enthusiasts and tinkerers will probably like fooling around with it. It’s the type of tablet that can shine if you put enough effort into it. Most consumers don’t want effort, they want easy.

It would have been very easy for Fusion Garage to simply slap Honeycomb onto the Grid10 and leave it at that, so we applaud the company for taking a huge leap in creating its own user interface. And to be sure, there are a lot of great innovations, such as the smart browser controls and contextual menus. The Heartbeat is another stand-out feature. However, the learning curve will be too steep for many. We'd like to see Fusion Garage streamline the interface with future updates so you don't need a map on the home screen. From a hardware standpoint alone, $299 for a 10-inch tablet is a bargain. Just know, though, that the Grid 10 will require some patience.

The second coming of Fusion Garage sadly feels like deja vu all over again

If you're going to go out of your way to bypass an established option like Honeycomb and do your own thing, your own thing had better be damned good. The Grid10 isn't even pretty good. It's borderline pretty bad. Software performance is sluggish, battery life is atrocious and we're left with a device that simply fails to beat the best of the Android tablets -- never mind the rest. It's far, far better than the departed JooJoo, but still a huge disappointment for us. We like a good second-coming story as much as the next guy and were genuinely hopeful that the rough, early versions of GridOS we saw would be polished into something new and exciting, but what we have is still crude and clunky. We're always hopeful for the future, but we fear no amount of polish could make this thing shine. So this, then, is a second-coming that shouldn't have been, leaving us shaking our heads in dismay yet again, wondering whether anybody else can step in and crack the kings at the top.
