Raon Digital Everun S8S Specifications and information

Review
Raon Digital Everun S8S alternatives
We like the Everun! Flash disk, auto screen rotate, good screen brightness and the ability to upgrade with HSDPA or EVDO. Prices are very competitive and there's a good range of accessories. Class-leading battery life. On the negative side, the Everun has problems decoding ost video formats apart from MPEG-4. This is no desktop replacement but performs very well and is highly recommended as a mobile internet device.

Raon Digital Everun S8S alternatives

Sony Tablet P, 5.5 inch, 370 grams (0.82 lbs)
Eking M5, 5.0 inch, 440 grams (0.97 lbs)
Psixpda Psixpda, 4.8 inch, 420 grams (0.93 lbs)
A productive and usable design hampered by relatively short battery life. Mouse pad (hidden on right hand side of frame) is very usable when using the device in two-handed 'thumbing' mode. Keyboard very good for two-handed thumbing.
XPPhone XPPhone, 4.8 inch, 400 grams (0.88 lbs)
Early pricing (local, China) is said to be the equivalent of $400 but specifications are not known. If build quality can be kept high, this 400gm basic UMPC/Phone could find some customers. AMD processor is not very powerful but reaches full web speeds similar to very low-end Atom-based devices. 3D support is poor. Given a fast SSD, this could reach acceptable office application speeds.
Viliv N5, 4.8 inch, 399 grams (0.88 lbs)
Lives up to the pre-release hype. Great build quality, fast SSD, good keyboard and battery life. It's expensive when compared to the UMID BZ so you'll have to 'value' that extra memory and build quality. Base model, surprisingly, comes with no video out.
Fujitsu UH900, 5.6 inch, 500 grams (1.1 lbs)
Fujitsu have dropped the convertible screen seen on the U820, have increased the width (bigger keys), reduced the depth and thickness. Weight is down by 100gm. Mouse pointer and mouse buttons are included for on-the-move usage.
Eking S515, 4.8 inch, 420 grams (0.93 lbs)
A productive and usable design hampered by relatively short battery life. Mouse pad (hidden on right hand side of frame) is very usable when using the device in two-handed 'thumbing' mode.
Kohjinsha PA, 4.8 inch, 400 grams (0.88 lbs)
Sharp Netwalker, 5.0 inch, 409 grams (0.9 lbs)
The price could be a little high on this one at launch but it competes well with the UMID M1 UMPC. Battery life of 10 hours is a real bonus. Combine this with a Mifi and you're good to go! On the Ascii.co.jp video (see below) we're impressed with the load time (10-seconds for ascii.co.jp on a Firefox browser) and the embedded Flash video.
Tainell T500, 5.0 inch, 450 grams (0.99 lbs)
With very similar appearance and features to the Viliv S5, this may have to compete on price. No information on the on-screen-keyboard at this stage. Windows7 may be the solution here.
