Linuxdevices.com reports that Everex (purveyor of the Linux-powered gPC) is set to release its own $399 ultraportable computer sharing the Eee's basic form factor. The report further says that this new ultraportable (dubbed "Cloudbook") will run gOS -- the same Linux distro they preinstall on their low-cost desktops. What makes the Cloudbook interesting is that instead of using solid state disks (SSD) similar to the one used with the Eee, this will have a traditional 30Gb hard drive!
Everex will also release a "developer edition" Cloudbook that has a touchscreen -- a hint that the second iteration of this ultraportable will also have a touchscreen.
I wonder how would Asus react to this (if they react at all)?
