Everex demonstrates CloudBook Max with built-in WiMAX
Everex is showing the Everex CloudBook Max, a mini-notebook with a 8.9" screen and integrated single-chip Mobile WiMAX solution from GCT Semiconductor for use with Sprint's high-speed XOHM wireless network. Everex has adopted the VIA C7-M ULV processor to power the new PC.

VIA and Everex will display the device for the first time at CTIA Wireless 2008.

The Everex CloudBook Max weighs less than 1kg and has been designed to enable people to enjoy a growing array of rich mobile Internet applications and services that will be available on fast wireless networks such as the Sprint's XOHM.

"Consumers and mobile workers want to experience the real Internet and all their favorite applications with the same high speed and full functionality whether at their desk or on the go," said Richard Brown, Vice President of Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. "With its ground-breaking design and embedded Mobile WiMAX connectivity, the new Everex CloudBook Max paves the way for truly seamless computing whatever your location."

Powered by the 1.6GHz VIA C7-M ULV processor coupled with the VIA VX800 digital media IGP chipset, the Everex CloudBook Max supports Microsoft Windows Vista and delivers graphics and video performance through its vibrant 8.9" WVGA display at resolutions of up to 1024 x 600.

With its integrated single chip Mobile WiMAX solution, the Everex CloudBook Max will connect seamlessly to the Sprint XOHM wireless broadband network, as well as to existing 802.11b/g WiFi networks. To provide additional convenience and functionality the device also comes with Bluetooth support, an integrated GPS receiver, and dual built-in 2-megapixel webcams for videoconferencing.

The Everex CloudBook Max delivers up to four hours of battery life and also features a full keyboard plus integrated trackpad with two mouse buttons in a stylish and durable form factor that measures just 240mm(w) x 175mm(d) x 27mm(h). Other features include up to 2GB DDR2 SDRAM, 80GB hard disk drive, one S-Video port, and Mic-In/Speaker-Out ports.

The Everex CloudBook Max is expected to be available in a year.
