Viliv Media Tablet Phone could be 3G-enabled P3 PMP

Viliv’s CES 2011 plans were previewed yesterday, with the company’s X7 and X10 Android tablets and X70 Windows 7 slate all mentioned, but it turns out that there’s a fourth device on the cards which could be even more interesting. Pocketables spotted a Viliv “Media Tablet Phone” mentioned in the invite email but not in any of the press shots, suggesting the company is looking to make an even smaller MID.

The company actually showed a small-scale Android device back at CES 2010, in the shape of the Viliv P3 PMP (shown above). That had a 3.7-inch AMOLED WVGA touchscreen, an 800MHz Cortex A8 processor and up to 32GB of storage, squeezed into a 9.8mm thick casing.

The P3 was also able to dual-boot between Android and Windows CE, though we’re guessing the new, unnamed Viliv “media tablet phone” will stick with just Google’s OS, but lacked any sort of cellular connectivity; Viliv was positioning it as an iPod touch rival, not an iPhone alternative. It seems they’ve corrected that mistake this time around.
