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 Premium Air 3G SSD MID gets video review

Viliv S5 Premium Air 3G SSD MID gets video review

Viliv's S5 Premium MID has already performed well in reviews, but the two things missing have always been integrated 3G and an SSD option.  Viliv has catered for just those demands with the S5 Premium Air, packing the same 1.33GHz Intel Atom CPU and 1GB of RAM, but pairing them with a 16GB SSD and Huawei's EM770  HSPA module; we've seen the video unboxing, now jkkmobile offers his full video review.

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.

Viliv S5 MID reviewed: swift, sleek and definitely tempting

Viliv S5 MID reviewed: swift, sleek and definitely tempting

We're unashamed of our Viliv S5 lusts here at SlashGear, and Pocketables' review of the 4.8-inch MID has done little to change our feelings.  Though we've already seen the S5 unboxed, demonstrated, dissected, hacked, repurposed as a PND and more, a full going-over is always welcome.  What the Viliv MID delivers are accurate battery estimates, decent 720p playback, reasonable performance and speedy internet surfing.
