Following in the footsteps of rivals Asus and MSI, Everex Systems is reportedly getting ready to introduce new 8.9-inch mini-notebooks by the end of August, as well as a model with a 10.2-inch screen in November.

There's no final word on whether these notebooks will be using Intel's Atom processors or a competing product from VIA, but the company's assembly partner FIC did reveal some other details. The 10.2-inch model is expected to have a 1024 x 600 display with LED backlighting, up to 2GB of RAM, a 1.3-megapixel webcam, 2 USB ports, 4-in-1 card reader, Wi-Fi connectivity, and an express card slot. Fewer details are known of the 8.9-inch model, though specs are estimated to be similar.

What makes these new notebooks special, however, is that they will reportedly come with 3G wireless connection capabilities onboard and an option for WiMAX wireless. While FIC did not discuss pricing, they did suggest it could be subsidized by 3G wireless service providers.
