Viliv S10 Blade gets reviewed: great multipurpose tablet

We've already seen plenty of Viliv's S10 Blade convertible touchscreen netbook, criticized its pricing and watched it strut its stuff on video; all that's left is the full review, and UMPC Portal have just that.  They've been playing with the S10 Blade for a few weeks now, and come away mightily impressed.

Viliv S5, X70EX and S7 arrive at Best Buy

Tempted by Viliv's range of MIDs and convertible netbooks, but wary of ordering sight-unseen from importers online?  That's all set to change this week, with the announcement that select Viliv devices will be showing up in Best Buy Mobile stores.  The range will include the Viliv S5 and Viliv X70EX MIDs and the 7-inch S7 convertible touchscreen netbook.

Viliv S10 Blade full pricing leaks: too expensive

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 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.

Viliv N5 clamshell MID coming to CES 2010

Viliv N5 clamshell MID coming to CES 2010

UMPC and MID manufacturers Viliv have had a pretty good year in their segment, and they're obviously hoping to start off 2010 in the same manner.  According to UMPC Portal, the company is planning on launching two devices at CES in January, with the Viliv N5 making its debut and the Viliv S10 getting its full launch.  The S10 is a pretty straightforward 10-inch netbook, but the N5 is a 4.8-inch MID in the manner of the Fujitsu LifeBook UH900 or the UMID mbook M2.

Viliv S10 10hr touchscreen netbook stars in hands-on video

The Viliv S10 may be a size increase for the Korean company, but at 10-inches the convertible touchscreen netbook is still very much an ultraportable.  Steve from MID Moves had a chance to grab some hands-on time with the S10, suggesting that the netbook is better put together than Gigabyte’s TouchNote; you can see his video after the cut.

Viliv X70 arrives at Newegg; more expensive than rivals

If there’s one thing capitalism has taught us, it’s that competition is usually good for prices.  Newegg have just joined Dynamism in offering the Viliv X70 UMPC, the 7-inch Korean touchscreen tablet, which you’d expect to mean prices were pushed down.  Unfortunately Newegg don’t seem to have got that memo; their prices are actually a little more expensive than the existing offers.

Viliv S7 lands at reviewers, gets video unboxing & hands-on

It's not quite the same as having a Viliv S7 here in our sweaty, bitten-to-the-quick hands, but we'll certainly settle for an unboxing video for that vicarious, new-gadget thrill.  As we commented the other day, several S7 units have been winging their way to reviewers worldwide, with jkkmobile and jkOnTheRun both receiving theirs this week.  From the former we have an unboxing, while the latter has a live gallery and video demo.
