Various rumors have been flying around about the CrunchPad tablet netbook, but here’s some shocking news.
TechCrunch founder, Michael Arrington, had been working together with a small group on creating a tablet netbook device nicknamed the CrunchPad. It was a device that was designed mainly to surf the web and have little local storage space. It was even starting to look more and more like a netbook the further it got into production.
Unfortunately, the company that Arrington partnered with to produce the CrunchPad tablet netbook got into a quarrel with Arrington. The latest word on the street is that Arrington said the company planned on kicking him off the CrunchPad project and selling the device under a different name. And so that put an end to the partnership.
No details are set in stone yet, but we’ll keep you posted on any developments we hear about.
