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.

Viliv X70 7-inch UMPC gets video first-impressions

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.

We can't get enough of the Viliv S5, and we know a lot of you feel the same way, so it seemed sensible to remind SlashGear readers that importer Dynamism's pre-sales for the 4.8-inch touchscreen MID kick off today at 1pm EST.  If you're undecided whether $599 is a reasonable amount to spend on an Atom-powered ultraportable with WiFi and Bluetooth, Intel's own Michael Brito has shot a demo video espousing the S5's virtues.

In case you had any doubt what MIDs are squaring up against, here's the first video demo of the production S5 in action that Viliv chose to send out.  One of their testers has installed iTunes onto his modified Windows XP system and is calling the user experience similar to that of an iPod touch; obviously, though, this is the full iTunes software as you'd find on your desktop.
