Viliv S5 MID gets video unboxing, walkthrough

After yesterday's Viliv S5 MID unboxing gallery, now comes the unboxing video together with a hands-on video.  The S5 is shaping up to be a very interesting device, with the portability and media functionality of a touchscreen PMP, but the flexibility of a MID.  Unlike some rivals, there's no shortage of ports, either; the S5 manages to fit in both a USB host and USB client port.

When I first heard of hdd docking station, I was thrilled and excited about the simplicity of accessing an internal 3.5-inch form factor hard drive with plug-n-play ability.

Since we're still waiting to hear when the Viliv S5 MID will land in Europe or the US, our unboxing joy will have to be achieved vicariously through photoshoots like UMPC Fever's.  They've managed to score one of the 4.8-inch touchscreen handhelds, and have photos not only of the unboxing but of the GUI, accessories and even a few group shots with the Sony VAIO P and what looks to be Compal's MID.
