Viliv X70 7-inch UMPC gets video first-impressions

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 Entertainment MID coming March with Haptic feedback

Of the  mobile computing products we saw at CES last month, we're still particularly excited about the Viliv range of UMPCs and entertainment MIDs.  The company's estimates suggested that the S7, S5 and X70 MIDs would land in Spring 2009.  However we now know a few more details, including that the Viliv S5 will have haptic feedback, plus a more specific release window for the handheld.

Viliv S5 ‘cube’ GUI video demo; two Atom-based UMPCs at CES

Ahead of their CES 2009 appearance, more details of the Viliv range from Yukyung Technologies have been emerging.  The S5 MID, which has been promised for early 2009 and boasts 1080p HD-capabilities, integrated 3G and a 4.8-inch touchscreen, has been demonstrating its "cube" GUI, an in-house development intended to make a desktop OS (like Windows XP) more finger- and stylus-friendly on the move.  Also, confirmation of further Viliv devices have been revealed.

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

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.

Viliv S5 MID: Atom, 6hr battery & optional 3G

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.

Suzuki Neutron 701 MNI touchscreen netbook with 4GB RAM

Suzuki Neutron 701 MNI touchscreen netbook with 4GB RAM

Considering we were so quietly excited about the upcoming 7-inch Viliv S7 last week (and, frankly, before), we can't really argue with this new touchscreen convertible netbook either.  The Suzuki Neutron 701 MNI has a name that's both daft and reminiscent of early Eee PC models, but inside there's that same Intel Atom Z520 processor that keeps popping up to frustrate us.

We didn't especially like the Z520 when it came in the Acer Aspire One 751 - in fact we felt it hopelessly undermined it - but there's always the chance that the dainty Suzuki might make better use of its equally-dainty CPU.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 34 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 34 2008

Intel have been holding their annual Developers' Forum in San Francisco this week, and quite a few prototypes and commercial products have come out to play. Of the former, most exciting seems to be the UrbanMax Tablet PC concept; of the latter, Viliv's S5 MID and S7 UMPC both promise to crank the netbook market up a gear or two.

That's probably not what Acer want to hear; the company has snipped pricing off of their Aspire One netbook, presumably remembering (only a little late) that the ultraportables are meant to be cheap. Not far from the shelves, Fujitsu's Amilo Mini and Dell's Inspiron 910 continued to leak information, but still no official word from the tongue-tied companies themselves.
