Details on Everex CloudBook Max: WiMAX, Windows Vista, and More

cloubook4.JPGWe’ve given the Everex CloudBook a thorough once-over and, frankly, found it a rather subpar derivative of the Asus Eee PC, but we have to admit that the news that’s just crossed the wire is quite intriguing. Today, Via Technologies announced that Everex has adopted the Via C7-M ULV processor for its new 2.2-pound CloudBook Max, a 9.4 x 6.8 x 1.0-inch mini-notebook sporting an integrated Mobile WiMAX solution for use with Sprint’s Xohm network. But wait, there’s more. Lots more. The CloudBook Max’s 1.6-GHz Via processor, coupled with Via’s VX800 digital media IGP chipset, will enable the little lappy to support Microsoft Windows Vista—huh?! In addition, the 8.9-inch display will rock a rather sweet 10,24 x 600-pixel resolution, Bluetooth, an integrated GPS receiver, dual 2-megapixel webcams, an 80GB hard drive, S-Video, and 2GB of RAM. Sounds pretty sweet, right? Well, there’s one drawback: the system will be available “in a year.” D’oh. Hopefully, this will give Everex the time to work out the kinks found in the first CloudBook. It’s going to be demoed at CTIA, so check back for more info. Update: The WiMax Cloudbook Max is being show in the WiMax Experience Lound in the Central Hall but it is behind glass. Here is a pic of the Cloudbook in its cage.
