Raon Digital closes doors
Raon Digital, the hardware manufacturer behind the Everun, 7-inch Everun Note and Vega UMPCs, has quietly closed its doors for business and shut down its website, according to a Tuesday UMPCportal report. There was no official reason cited for the closure, and Raon did not respond to e-mail queries, though no further products from the company are expected.
All three Raon devices were powered by AMD processors and ran on Windows XP Home. With its move, Raon joins other UMPC upstarts who went broke, including Wibrain, OQO, Flipstart and Pepperpad. Service and repair inquiries should be addressed to retailers that carry the Raon devices.
