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.

Newegg have three X70 models to choose from, starting at $599.99 for the 1.20GHz Atom Z515 “Express P”, then the $729.99 “Premium P”, and finally the $879.99 “Premium 3GP”.  Unfortunately Dynamism’s prices are all a couple of bucks cheaper, plus they’re offering free accessories and even a CPU upgrade on the entry-level model.  Nice try, Newegg; how about a quick price slash to show you love us?
