Viliv S10 Blade full pricing leaks: too expensive

While we got our first glimpse of Viliv S10 Blade pricing yesterday, when import specialist Dynamism confirmed the convertible touchscreen netbook would kick off from $699, we've still been waiting for full pricing across all seven models.  A little Google Shopping magic later, however, and one UMPC Portal commenter has dug up all the pricing; as we feared, the S10 Blade isn't going to be an especially affordable system.  Full price/spec list after the cut.

Viliv S10 Blade gets listed: multitouch, SSD and HSPA

Viliv's S10 Blade, the company's 10.1-inch convertible touchscreen netbook, has finally gone up for preorder.  The good folk at import specialists Dynamism are listing seven SKUs of the netbook; the basic S10 Blade comes with Windows XP, a 60GB HDD and 1.6GHz Atom Z530 processor (and thus lacks OS multitouch support), but after that it's Windows 7 all round and a choice of 32GB or 64GB SSDs.

Viliv X70 UMPC delayed by components shortages

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.
