Viliv S5 MID reviewed: swift, sleek and definitely tempting

We're unashamed of our Viliv S5 lusts here at SlashGear, and Pocketables' review of the 4.8-inch MID has done little to change our feelings.  Though we've already seen the S5 unboxed, demonstrated, dissected, hacked, repurposed as a PND and more, a full going-over is always welcome.  What the Viliv MID delivers are accurate battery estimates, decent 720p playback, reasonable performance and speedy internet surfing.

Viliv S5 MID sells out in 15 mins; first reviews glowing

We'll have to wait until the end of March before we can get our hands on the Viliv S5 MID, but the touchscreen device went up for limited sale in Korea today and competition for a unit was high.  Viliv offered just 1,000 of the MIDs, with a 4.8-inch 800 x 480 WVGA display, which apparently sold out in 15 minutes.  Lazion have a (Korean language) review up of the S5, and first impressions seem pretty good: 4hrs 35 minutes runtime playing a looping 1.6Mbps DivX video, together with an 18,280 score in CrystalMark 2004R3.
