Our brethren over at Engadget Chinese
just went hands-on with the Via NanoBook
at Computex. Better yet, they seem to have unearthed the other, US-bound OEM: FIC
(First International Computer) as it's known in Taiwan, or Everex
as we know 'em Stateside. Makes sense given Everex's penchant for VIA C7-M procs in their StepNote
series of laptops. The FIC CE260 they played with even had a prototype Skype-phone module in place of that oddball world clock insert seen previously
. Also new is a date: they were told to expect the unit to show up in China and Europe (presumably under the Packard Bell branding) sometime in August. Engadget Chinese has tons of pics and first-hand impressions so be sure to click the "read" link below for a quick trip across the Pacific.
