    RIP: Cloudbook maker, Everex 2008 – 2009

    The Cloudbook by Everex: It was one of the first netbooks released back in the wild and crazy days of 2008. But it didn’t start off on the right foot. Everex delayed the Cloudbook a few times and early reviews told a sad story, but it was eventually sold at Walmart. We never heard of anyone actually buying one though, but we’re sure someone out there probably did. Anyway, the… Read More

    Cloudbook turning Japanese, gets touchscreen and XP

    On March 22nd, Everex will be releasing its Eee-like Cloudbook in Japan. Unlike the Cloudbook available here in the US, the Japanese version has a front-mounted trackpad (instead of up in the corner), touchscreen, webcam, and Windows XP. All these features will come at a price, though, as the Japanese Cloudbook (model number CE1200J) will cost 59,800 Yen — or $617 US. More details… Read More

  • Cloudbook launches on Wal-Mart's website

    [photopress:cloudbook.jpg,full,center] Did you hear that? That was the sound of the Everex Cloudbook finally hitting. We’d heard rumors of it being delayed until at least March, but Wal-Mart has them in stock, at $399. While initial review units had problems, it’s possible they’ve been corrected for the final retail version, but given the tight time from, we doubt it. Read More

    Everex CloudBook delayed again until mid-March?

    Those of you waiting for tomorrow — when the Cloudbook is supposed to be available at fine retailers like Walmart — might want to prepare yourselves for a longer wait…again. Already delayed to begin with, the Everex Cloudbook has been, you guessed it, delayed again. First it was Chinese New Year coupled with OS refinements and now it’s snow. Snow. Snow is delaying… Read More

    CloudBook unboxed and riddled with problems [Update]

    Our pals over at Laptop got their mitts on the CloudBook and they’ve run into two major problems. I guess it’s three, but they’re only reporting on two. They can’t even get it past the start screen right now is what I’m being told. LMAO. Here are the other two things they’ve run into. * The pointing device: The touchpad is a tiny stretch of plastic in the… Read More

  • Everex Cloudbook: The Motion Picture

    The video’s about on the same level of quality as Heidi Montag’s new music video, but considerably sexier. Well, maybe. In any case, it doesn’t give you the sense of how compact the thing is since there is no way of telling the scale in the video. It could be a galaxy-sized Cloudbook in a white void, but likely it’s just their production model, set to hit the street hot… Read More

    Everex delays CloudBook until end of February

    There’s no joy in Mudville as Everex has delayed its $399 Linux-based ultraportable notebook (specs here) until February. It was supposed to be released yesterday and, sure, February’s less than a week away but Everex is talking about a month from now, meaning the end of February. The delay, according to Everex, is due to the “OS being refined” and workers taking time… Read More

    Everex prepping a 9-inch sub-$500 notebook too

    I caught word from the VIA rep at CES that Everex would be offering a 7-inch Linux-based notebook at Walmart and then Nicholas followed up with the official word. Now we’re hearing that Everex will follow the 7-inch version (shown above) up with a 9-inch version some time in June and will aim to keep it under $500. The 7-inch version will cost $399 so it might be safe to say that the… Read More
