Unboxing the Everun

Today I received a package coming from Dynamism: the Everun. This post is just to show the box and what was inside of it and to share my first impressions about this UMPC without having turn it on for the first time. I have shot a few pictures to document this short note because to me high resolution pictures work a lot better than any video review where the device is left in a secondary role and no details can be seen.

The first two pictures show the box which quality reminded me the one from the Samsung Q1.

Once the box is opened the first thing in the first layer is the Everun. The second layer contains the User's Manual and Microsoft's Windows XP Home Edition CD.

The 3rd layer in the box contains the power supply, a carrying case, a extra stylus, a carrying strap and a VGA Cable.

The next pictures show the carrying case, a case that reminds me the one included with the TabletKiosk eo v7110.


Next is the VGA Cable.


I have left for the end two pictures of the Everun.

What I think about the Everun today, when I have not turned on yet? Well, I had the opportunity to have in my hands the first Raon UMPC, the Vega. Looking the Everun I can say that Raon has learned a lot during this first year and the quality of this second generation device  is a lot better than what I saw in the Vega. The Everun exterior looks very well finished. The buttons in this device are better defined and are easier to use than in the old Vega.

The Everun design impressed me because it's a very well made UMPC. But I repeat, I have not turned on yet. So here is an opportunity for you, my dear reader to ask whatever you want me to check in this device. I'll try my best to answer all your questions in my next post about the Everun.

  1. Hi Frank;

    I'm sorry for posting here but I have no other way of contacting you.

    I am happy to finally see the screen rotation utility for the Amtek T700. However, it seems just to be a screen rotation utility, all tablet functionality disappears.

    The pen and the cursor are reverse mirror images of each other.

    Is there any way you can contact the developer to see if this is how it is supposed to be or did I do something wrong.

    To reiterate, screen rotation does work but the tablet/pen functions are pretty much useless.

    Thank you,
    Aaron J. Walker
    here is me e-mail address:

  2. Thanks Frank;

    I'm really hoping it is me doing something wrong since the software works otherwise.

    I checked the forums (translated from Spanish) and no one else seems to be indicating anything wrong with them using it.

    I recalibrated the screen in portrait with still no luck.

    I'm really hoping it's me and I'll be able to get this working.

  3. Hello Aaron,

    I sent you an e-mail.

  4. The e-mail has been returned, so I'll copy it here:

    Hello Aaron.

    If the pen doesn't put the mouse cursor where you tap, you only need to
    recalibrate it for the new orientation, as I say in the "readme".

    As for the mouse, the Synaptics driver must be installed, so if you have
    not installed it do it now. Then open the task manager and check if the
    process "SynTPEnh.exe" is running. If it's not runnig, then execute it
    with "Windows+R" key combination. Once it's running execute RotateT700
    again and re-enable the rotation.

    If it doesn't work yet then try going to the mouse properties on the
    control panel, then to the Synaptics tab and enter to edit the values,
    even if you really don't change anything.

    I hope this help.

  5. Thanks, Frank!

    as for what I would like to check...

    there is a little concern over Everun's perfomance in certain multimedia tasks, namely WMV playback.

    I wonder if there is a software solution to this problem.

    So, could you please use Elphant's Dream 720 (available here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=522cde5b-68ad-4d79-a446-a25c2e126e24&displaylang=en ) to test the following players on Everun:

    VLC http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

    Zoom Player http://www.inmatrix.com/files/zoomplayer_download.shtml#FEATURES

    I wonder if using one of those renowned players will alleviate the Everun vs WMV isse (both of theese players are claimed to be quite efficient and low-footprint)

    Is Everun overclockable? Is there a way to get access to its FSB/multiplier/etc and push its limits just a little bit?

    Most of all, I am interested whether any of the Windows oveclocking software (like CPUMSR
    and CrystalCPUID) will work...

  6. VLC and Zoom will work better than WMP. The playback in WMP is really bad. I also tested GOMPlayer playing DVD is a little bit choppy but viewable. Playing divx at 700 to 1000 kbps is the best way to go.

    I cant test overclocking in this unit. It's too risky and this unit is not mine.

    Some news: I'm playing right now Quake II on it. Nuke 3D also plays well.
