Preorders for Viliv MIDs and UMPCs just don't seem to be blessed with the best of luck.  After the Viliv S5 launch brought down importer Dynamism's servers and left many struggling to complete their orders, the launch of the Viliv X70 has been struck by components shortages at the factory.  In an email to those who preordered the 7-inch touchscreen device, Dynamism suggests that "MIDs have been especially popular this year" which surprised components suppliers.

Viliv X70 UMPC gets reviewed: best 7-inch handheld yet

We've already seen enough of Viliv's X70 to know it could arguably be the company's best device to-date, and now the first full review of the 7-inch UMPC is in from our friend Steve over at UMPC Portal.  He describes the X70 as "the best 7-in Tablet UMPC we've ever tested", praising its great build quality, long battery life and impressive web browsing and media playback.

For the past few months, nobody even vaguely interested in MIDs could've escaped hearing about Viliv's S5.  Now, the company is obviously hoping to drum up the same enthusiasm about their X70, another Atom-based device but this time with a larger, 7-inch WSVGA touchscreen.  The first review device has landed over at jkOnTheRun, and that can only mean one thing: a first-impressions video.

Viliv Computex plans revealed: new MID & netbook, WWAN-a-plenty

Viliv have announced their plans for Computex, and there are a few interesting MID and UMPC tidbits that should keep them ahead of the game in the ultramobile space.  As well as obviously demonstrating the latest versions of their existing set-to-ship range, Viliv have promised a 10-inch screen MID (possibly a netbook) and a 4.8-inch MID with keyboard, potentially as in the mockup shown here.

Viliv S5 pre-order swamps servers; second chance promised

Viliv's S5 is causing more trouble, this time for importers Dynamism.  After selling out in Korea and Hong Kong in record time, the coveted MID has now left many would-be pre-order customers in the US with a sour taste: demand for the 4.8-inch touchscreen device brought Dynamism's servers to their knees, leading to slow- or non-loading pages and a general inability to snatch up one of the limited numbers of S5s on Monday.
