In addition, they maybe accelerating the release of their 8.9-inch Everex Cloudbook Max to the end of August for Japan and Taiwan, and September for the US (instead of later in the year as originally reported), with a WiMax-version due in September.

The information is said to come from First International Computer (FIC), who manufacturers the 7-inch Everex CloudBook and one curious note is that instead of strictly staying with a VIA C7-M 1.6GHz CPU, Everex has opted for a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU as well, with a slower VIA CPU.
– CE2A1 – 1.2GHz Via C7-M, 1GB RAM, 60GB HDD (Taiwan for around NT$14,000 (Â£230, $460))
– CW0A1 – 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, Windows XP, (Taiwan for around NT$15,000).
