Everex CloudBook Delay
After missing its original launch date, Everex today let hopeful buyers of its CloudBook micro-notebook know that it would delay the launch of the system from January 25th to February 15th, more than two weeks later than expected. The company has not explained the delay but has not changed the specifications for the miniature portable, which is based around a 7-inch screen, a 1.2GHz Via C7-M processor, and the gOS Linux variant that supplies quick links to web services as well as free productivity apps such as OpenOffice.
The price of the system is also unchanged and sits at $399, the same as the 4GB model of ASUS' Eee PC which serves as the CloudBook's most direct challenger. Everex will sell the computer at Wal-Mart as well as ZaReason. [via Laptoping]
