Fusion Garage Introduces Its Droid Lineup - Meet Grid 4 And Grid 10

By 07:50 Mon, 12 Jul 2021 Comments

The fine thing about Android is that everyone can have a go at it - Fusion Garage are the latest to throw their hat into the ring with a phone, the Grid 4, and a tablet, Grid 10. Both run the so-called Grid OS, which is a deeply customized version of Android.

If you haven't heard of Fusion Garage before, you are not alone. The tech company is known for the not really successful JooJoo tablet, but their products never really took off.

Fusion Garage Grid 4

The smartphone, the Fusion Garage Grid 4, packs a 4" WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) TFT classy screen in a slender 122.4 x 63.9 x 9.6 mm body that weighs 137g. It's powered by a 1Giga Hertz (GHz) elegant Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon, which Fusion Garage oddly calls a dual-core (which it isn't, it's the same Central Processing Units (CPU) as in, say, the HTC Desire S). The smartphone also has 512Mega Bytes (MB) Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 16GB of built-in storage.

Other specs on the Grid 4 include quad-band GSM, tri-band 3G (with HSDPA), 5MP capturing camera with Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash 720p video recording, Video Graphics Array (VGA) secondary camera, Bluetooth 2.1, Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) b/g/n, GPS, microSD card slot and 1300mAh battery. The Grid 4 uses microSIMs for a change.

As for Grid OS, Fusion Garage claim they've completely redefined the way you utilize a touch classy screen with a "completely gesture-based and button-free" UI, they say. They also talk about some wheel menu with spokes - First ELSE, anyone?. The Heartbeat feature anticipates your needs and gives you at-a-glance info of what's going on around you.

The Grid 10 runs the same modified Android as the Grid 4. It has Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) b/g/n connectivity, quad-band 2G/3G (microSIM again), 16GB storage expandable with microSD cards and a docking port (which combines charging, Universal Serial Bus (USB) and HDMI).
