Last Post

I have not posted anything on the EVERUN for a while, and because RAON have moved to a larger screen making the device bigger than it could have been I have decided to put away My Vega in favor of My Kohinsha. The Vega with its 4.3" screen had looked to promise a true pocket PC, however their second generation unit has moved closer to the size of a UMPC, and as such the Kohjinsha is in my opinion a better device.

This will be my final entry, but anyone interested can follow My Kohjinsha blog here

EVERUN, an OQO 2 Alternative?

Since the announcement of the Raon Digital EVERUN I have been comparing it against the much more expensive OQO 2, and if all you are looking for is a cost effective pocketable PC then the EVERUN may be your device.

Below I have listed the key comparative information for both devices.


Size = 142.2mm (L) x 83.8mm (W) x 25.4mm (D)
Screen Size = 5"
Weight = less than 1LB
OS = Windows XP Home (base model)
Process = 1.2GHz (base model)
HDD = 30GB (base model)
RAM = 512MB (base model)
Price = $1,499 USD (base model)

Raon Digital EVERUN

Size = 170mm (L) x 83mm (W) x 25mm (D)
Screen Size = 4.8"
Weight = 1.08LB
OS = Windows XP Home
Process = 600MHz
HDD = 30GB
RAM = 512MB
Price = $700 USD approx (expected retail price)

Based on the above there is very little between these 2 devices, with the exception of the CPU and keyboard position. If you are looking for something to act as a desktop replacement or need a more powerful CPU, then the OQO will win, but if you are looking for a portable companion then my money is on the EVERUN.
