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.

The Gbook is a laptop that has a 1.5GHZ VIA C7-M processor, 512MB DDR2 SDRAM, 60GB SATA HDD, DVD/CD-ROM, 15.4" WXGA and a widescreen display. It weighs 5.3lbs and 14.06"x10.67"x1.02". It'll cost $399 and be available though Wal-Mart as well.
