The release date for the JooJoo, a mildly anticipated tablet device that is going to be a direct competitor to Apple's iPad, has been pushed back because the company said it had problems with the product's touch screen. The problem, however, has been fixed and the delay will only be a few weeks.

Anyone who pre-ordered a JooJoo will receive a free unspecified accessory to make up for the extra month they will have to wait.

The JooJoo is a large touch-screen device that looks kind of like a bulky iPad. The 12.1-inch screen has about 3 inches on the Apple device, but its weight is substantially heavier and it has no 3G compatibility.

This little device has already been through the ringer. The company behind it, Fusion Garage, faced a lawsuit by TechCrunch because the latter claimed that it was involved in the product's development but was not given adequate recognition for doing so. The ongoing lawsuit has not been settled.

It had originally been set for a February release, but the JooJoo is now slated to begin shipping on March 25th. It carries a price of $499, exactly the same as the low-end iPad.
