Everex Systems is going to launch a new 10.2 inch netbook this November. Officials of the taiwanese OEM FIC confirmed that Everex will start shipping a new 10.2 inch version of their Cloudbook productline with 3G and an option for WiMax connectivity. Especially the 3G option should make it very appealing for service providers to bundle it with a 3G contract.
FIC isn’t sure about the cpu and chipset platform right now. It could either feature an Intel Atom or a similar VIA cpu. An interesting sitenote might be, that the Cloudbook Max should be already available at the end of August.
Everex 10.2 inch netbook
- Intel Atom or similar VIA cpu
- 10.2 inch WSVGA LED screen (1024×600)
- up to 2GB DRAM
- 1.3MP webcam
- 2x USB 2.0, express card slot, 4-in-1 card reader
- 4 or 6-cell battery
- about 1.2 kilogramms

We can buy 3G/GSM phones that can surf the Interent and make normal calls these days. But can we buy netbooks/notebooks that do the same thing i.e. work as normal phones (not via Skype, Net2Phone, CallServe etc) as well as the Internet Surfing?
This WOULD be the netbook to rival all others.
I am surprised Vodaphone / Dell didn’t try this.
A netbook with small BlueTooth ear/mic piece would be a Christmas stocking filler for sure.
Perhaps companies do have this but are waiting for the suitable ‘up-grade’ time to come along.
YUP, i agree with you, the FLYBOOK did this but its an overpriced white elephant.
If one of the current netbook manufactures could incorporate this option with bluetooth connectivity to an earpiece then this would be awesome.
