Cloudbook Maker Everex Snapped up by Newmarket
Low-cost PC maker Everex this week said it had agreed to be acquired by systems integrator Newmarket Technology for an undisclosed sum.
Newmarket said it will buy 75 percent of Everex's shares from parent company First International Computer, a Taiwan-based PC vendor.
Newmarket, which provides systems integration and technology infrastructure services, said Cloudbook's ability to offer high-speed WiMax capabilities will be at the center of the company's effort to offer new mobile technologies to customers, according to Philip Verges, CEO and founder of Newmarket, in a letter to shareholders on Tuesday.
Newmarket is interested in bringing ultramobile products, especially the WiMax-enabled Cloudbook, into emerging markets, said Paul Kim, director of marketing at Everex.
Hey, how about some USA in-store presence for the Cloudbook?
Just not at freaking US$450.00!
