Chandrasekar Rathakrishnan, CEO of fusion Garage, presented their new mobile operating system GridOS, used by both Grid 10 tablet and Grid 4 phone, today. GridOS is based on the Android kernel, but it’s not Android. The user interface is… different.
There should be some pictures and an ordering form on their website fusiongarage.com, but I wasn’t able to find it yet. There were no mentions of a promised SDK and very little about native 3rd party software. They will open Grid Shop – their own app marketplace – soon, and Grid OS is able to run side-loaded Android software.
Grid 10 Tablet
Tegra 2 dual-core, 10″ LCD, 1366 x 768 pixels, 1,3 Mpx front facing camera, 16 GB, microSD slot, Bluetooth, WiFi, 3G optional
- without 3G: 499 USD
- with 3G: 599 USD
Grid 4 Phone
Qualcomm dual-core, LCD 800 x 480, rear-facing camera 5 Mpx with autofocus, front-facing camera 0,3 MPx, 16 GB

So I was right it is not Nokia and/or Microsoft. 😉
