CloudBook from Everex delayed yet again

CloudBook from Everex delayed yet again

So after several delays, the CloudBook was supposed to go on sale last Friday, those waiting at Wal-Mart were quickly disappointed when they never showed up, although the press review units apparently arrived on time. Then Everex says they’ll have them here by this Thursday (tomorrow), well, now that has apparently fallen through as well.

I know our Chris Barr is waiting to get Everex Cloudbook from his Wal-Mart today, but it seems that none of the retailer that supposed to carry the product have them. Everex still shows Feb 15th as the shipping date.

Get the CloudBook experience on your Eee

If you have been (not so) patiently waiting for the Everex CloudBook notebook to come out, and just can’t wait any longer, you can create the same thing on an Eee PC. All you have to do is go find the latest build of the gOS and then get the Ubuntu drivers for your Eee, past that, installation should be a breeze.

The two notebooks hardware wise are nearly identical, so there won’t be much of a difference there, you’ll just have pretend it doesn’t say “ASUS” on the lid. I have no clue why you’d switch between two different Linux distros that are already pretty close to the same though, but if the gOS is what really makes you happy then go for it.

CES 2008: Everex Cloudbook UMPC and Gbook Laptop

Today I got to meet with some people from Everex. They showed me their two newest products: the Everex Cloudbook and the Everex Gbook.

The Cloudbook - initially known as the CE260 when first announced last June - is a UMPC and it measures 9” in length and weighs only 2 pounds. It has a 1.2GHz VIA C7-M, ultra low voltage, CPU and it has 5 hours of battery life on a 4 cell lithium-ion battery. It also features 30GB of internal storage, DVI-I, 4in1 card reader and 1.3MP Webcam, and is based on VIA's own NanoBook UMPC reference design (another version of which Packard Bell currently sell in the UK). The Cloudbook will be available January 25th at Wal-Mart and will retail for $399.

Zonbu, the company that brought you the uber cheap desktop that had a monthly subscription fee attached to it is now bringing you a notebook with the same deal. The biggest difference is you get a whole notebook instead of a dummy terminal with everything being based online.
