Everex Cloud Ultra-Portable Is Given An Extra Two Inches

Cheapo computer manufacturer Everex has announced that its Linux-friendly 7-inch Cloudbook UMPC will be coming out as a nine-inch model—and it should be available by June.

The Taiwanese PC maker is obviously gunning for a piece of Asus' market share, as it is following in the footsteps of the Eee and releasing a model with a larger LCD—and all for under $500, claims Everex.

As well as different-colored skins than the seven-incher's basic black, there are plans to include models with more storage and memory, but these will obviously come at a higher price. [Eee Site]
