CrunchPad tablet still alive; to cost between $300 – $400

November 16, 2009 at 1:50 pm

CrunchPad tablet Mike Arrington’s CrunchPad tablet project is still underway and on schedule despite rumours to the contrary. Speaking on the Gillmor Gang video, he reaffirmed that the “CrunchPad is steamrolling” and that “costs keep coming down”. In terms of the price tag, Arrington expects the cost to sit somewhere between $300 and $400.

Interestingly, he expects the device to be supported by “soft revenue” from “sponsorships”. Further news is expected very soon according to Arrington, who hopefully will give further detail on how adverts will be implemented. This may involve preloaded links or adverts, however Arrington has promised that they will be used “without impacting the user experience”. You can check out the video after the break, with the CrunchPad action starting at around the 39 minute mark.

    Glad things are rolling along. I found many of the rumors about it’s demise
    doubtful when they surfaced. You don’t get as far along as this has then all of a sudden get blown out by skyrocketing costs.

    Can’t wait to buy one
