Viliv officially announced two new compact netbook/MID/UMPC, the N5 Go-Everywhere PC and the S10 Blade multitouch tablet PC. Both devices are based on Atom processor and can be equipped with support for HSPA, TD-SCDMA, EVDO, WiMAX 4G connectivity…..
We wouldn’t say that Viliv is always tardy with its product releases, but neither would we say that we’re particularly surprised the N5 UMPC is only now making its way to retail seven months after being announced. It’s a Windows 7-toting, clutch-sized device packing specs that are at least seven months old: a 1.3GHz Atom Z520 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 32GB SSD. Despite that, performance is said to be good, capable of handling 720p and even 1080p video without a hitch on its 4.8-inch, WSVGA display. Build quality is said to be “superb,” the optical thumbpad thing is apparently a respectable mouse replacement, and 3G wireless (in addition to 802.11b/g and Bluetooth) is quite easy to enable.
Viliv’s S10 Blade, on the other hand, is a netbook tablet with a 10.1-inch swivel LCD display with 1366×768 resolution and multitouch. It is equipped with Atom Z530 1.6GHz or Z550 2GHz processor, 1GB of memory and up to 128GB SSD. The Blade has QWERTY keyboard as well. The battery allows up to 10 hours of use.
Unfortunately we’re still not sure what Viliv is going to charge for this, but we’re told it’ll be appearing for order in the very near future.
