Viliv P3 Android PMP gets video demo; more Viliv Android planned

Look out Creative, Viliv are creeping up behind you.  The company have been showing off their latest touchscreen device, and while you might assume it's another MID in actual fact Viliv are describing the P3 as a PMP; either way, you get an indecently skinny 9.8mm chassis, 3.7-inch AMOLED 800 x 480 touchscreen (Nexus One we're looking at you), 800MHz Cortex A8 processor and dual-booting Android and Windows CE.

MSI MT-V660 PMP looks to Zune HD for design inspiration

We're not wanting to point fingers here, but we couldn't help but notice some striking design similarities between the new MSI MT-V660 PMP and Microsoft's Zune HD; still, given the number of iPod copycats we've seen over the years, having your industrial design "borrowed" is now practically a sign that you've arrived.  Appearance aside, the MT-V660 gets a 3.2-inch display, TV output and a reasonably broad range of codec support thanks to the Rockchip RK2806 chipset.

Cyberus Smart Info Tablet gets reviewed: Dire

Back when we first caught sight of the Cyberus Smart Info Tablet, we pondered out loud whether there was anything Sungale's odd touchscreen gadget couldn't do.  Ebook reader, web surfer, PMP, internet radio and PND, the list of abilities is impressive; unfortunately, as Gadgetell discovered in their review of the Cyberus, while the spec sheet might look promising, the end result is something of a disappointment.
