The Viliv S5 is one sexy kit with its 4.8-inch touchscreen and $599 price. But what if we told you that you can get the similarly equiped, but also slightly larger X70 for the same price? Yeah, I know, crazy, but the Viliv X70 will be available from importer Dynamism at the same $599 price. You lose a bit of portability with the larger screen, but tell me that a 7-inch touchscreen isn’t portable and I’ll call you a liar. Here is why.
The upcoming X70 is still small at 1.45 pounds and 8-inches by 4.6-inches by .8-inches. That’s small enough to fit into any bag without notice. Hell, some Star Wars Expanded Universal novels weigh more. It may not be pocketable like the smaller S5, the X70 packs enough computing power to do almost anything you would expect a UMPC to do and probably more in a small size.
Dynamism has the Viliv X70 product page live for the upcoming device and we’re pleasantly surprised. The X70 maintains all the goodies of the S5 including GPS, 802.11 b/g, but ditches the 60GB spinning hard drive for either a 16GB or 32GB SSD. Plus, you can add a 3G modem if you so please. Also, don’t forget about the 7-inch WSVGA (1024×600) touchscreen.
The S5 went real fast and the importer is still having a tough time keeping them in stock. So you better head over to Dynamism and pre-order the Viliv X70 if you really want one. And you do. Trust us.
