FIC CW001 10.4-inch netbook clears FCC

FIC CW001 10.4-inch netbook clears FCC

With the netbook segment over-saturated with options, it's proving difficult for manufacturers to differentiate their machines.  Sadly FIC's 10.4-inch CW001, freshly revealed by the FCC, doesn't quite manage it, with the same old Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, up to 2GB of DDR2 RAM, 2.5-inch SATA-II hard-drive and an ExpressCard slot.  Unfortunately, contrary to some reports, there's no integrated optical drive (which would have at least given the CW001 something to crow about).

Everex 10.2-inch WiMAX Cloudbook ultraportable coming says FIC

Everex 10.2-inch WiMAX Cloudbook ultraportable coming says FIC

Everex are planning to take on the ASUS Eee PC 1000-series with a new 10.2-inch budget ultraportable notebook, according to sources at the company's manufacturing partner FIC.  The leak suggests that the devices will include 3G WWAN connectivity with WiMAX an option; a decision on processor has obviously not been made, as both Intel's Atom or a rival from VIA's stable have been mentioned.  It will be joined by new 8.9-inch ultraportables, adding WiMAX to the Cloudbook range.

It's been a week of ultraportables, frankly, with enough budget laptops vying for the Eee's crown to make the whole market more than a little confusing.  Medion announced their Akoya E1210 while 3K unveiled their own alternative; meanwhile, MSI finally released some decent photos of the Wind.  Thankfully there's now a comprehensive list of all the options available, meaning attention has turned from cataloguing to pondering whether Palm will join the fray with a re-worked version of the Foleo companion.  Stranger things (like the first Foleo, you could say) have happened.

Eight years ago, I was in love with Linux and I fell for it even more when I found Debian Linux. I dreamt about Linux being sold to the average Joe years ago, and today many companies do just that. I applaud Everex for taking a step to bring Linux-based computing to the masses.

SlashGear Week in Review – April 7th through April 13th

This was a long week with no major events occurring, but there were some pretty big announcements. For starters we have a new BitTorrent Set Top Box from Myka, no more will you have to waste power by leaving your entire computer running all night just to get the latest screener from FXG or aXXo, and this little set top box will do it for you and then play it right from its hard drive for added ease. Then there were rumors abound of Blockbuster potentially putting out a new Set Top Box to push their movies, TV Shows, and other content out to.
