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.

Viliv S5 MID coming early 2009: 1080p HD, touchscreen, optional 3G

A MID that promises in excess of six hours battery life is always going to get attention, and that's just what the Viliv S5 did back at IDF in August.  The 4.8-inch touchscreen device was slated to launch this quarter; courtesy of an interview with Yukyung, the company behind the S5, we now know it's coming in January or February next year.  So, it's late, but is it worth waiting for?  If you want a fanless ultraportable with hardware 1080p HD video acceleration, a Flash 10-based interface and optional GPS and DMB, then the answer is yes.

The last time Viliv graced these pages it was with their P2 PMP back in 2006; now the company has returned with a Mobile Internet Device (MID), on show at the Intel Developers' Forum.  The Viliv S5 MID has an 800 x 480 4.8-inch touchscreen and uses, unsurprisingly, an Intel Atom processor.  As well as WiFi and Bluetooth, it also has optional 3G HSDPA and WiBro.

Attention for the MID platform seems to be increasing every day, and the poster-children of the new ultraportable revolution are Viliv's S5 and X70.  The 4.8-inch S5 paved the way, and now even hitherto-doubtful people seem to be paying attention to the 7-inch X70, not least because of its $599 starting price.  jkOnTheRun's James Kendrick is one of the few people with both Viliv models on hand, and he's been answering questions about the pair in a video which you can see after the cut.

Viliv's S5 Premium MID has already performed well in reviews, but the two things missing have always been integrated 3G and an SSD option.  Viliv has catered for just those demands with the S5 Premium Air, packing the same 1.33GHz Intel Atom CPU and 1GB of RAM, but pairing them with a 16GB SSD and Huawei's EM770  HSPA module; we've seen the video unboxing, now jkkmobile offers his full video review.

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.
