The iPad is the king of tablets and might hold that title for years to come. However, there are a ton of alternatives that we’ve featured over the last few months, mostly in these two posts (1 & 2) detailing the top 14. But since I ran those posts, a lot has changed and while some managed to make it to the market, others were delayed or scrapped entirely.
It’s sad, really. While the iPad… → Read More
Viliv makes some hot, little portables. That’s a fact. The X70 and S5 touchscreen along with the S7 convertible netbook are among the best in their respective niche markets. But previously the products were only available from online retailers, which of course limits their visibility from a whole segment of potential customers. Starting Monday though, Best Buy shoppers will be able to pick up the… → Read More
We all know that there will be an onslaught of touchscreen computers this year and next. But the Internet really isn’t touchscreen friendly. It was designed for a mouse, not finger input. Google Reader Play is one of the early examples of a site redesigned for this sort of navigation with a slideshow-type interface and larger buttons.
I loaded up the demo on a Viliv X70 tablet computer and… → Read More
The Blump.it Firefox plug-in just hit the blogosphere today and I had to try it. So I loaded it up on the Viliv X70 with the hope that it will improve the functionality of the small-ish touchscreen and turn it into a certain tablet computer clone. In short, it does both very well. Check out the video after the jump to see it in action. → Read More
I loved the Viliv X70. It’s a great UMPC and it’s finally available for public consumption from Dynamism. The pre-orders took a little longer to ship than expected, but now that those are done, the X70 is available for everyone. Better yet, you can expect it to ship out the same day you place your order. Now, the smaller, but still hot, S5 is a different story. → Read More
I feel real sorry for the folks that pre-ordered the fantastic Viliv X70 from Dynamism. Those customers should have gotten an email today explaining that the UMPC has been delayed by about two weeks. It seems that it goes back to the old saying of how things roll down hill as a delay from component suppliers has been passed on to the consumers. Dynamism now expects the first shipment to go out on… → Read More
The Viliv X70 isn’t the first UMPC, nor is it the most feature-filled. It isn’t the most expensive or cheapest. But I’m willing to bet that it’s one of the most important devices in its class. The X70, and it’s little brother the S5, offer a lot of mobile goodness for a relatively low price. I’ve used the X70 everyday for almost three weeks and I’m more… → Read More
Do you want the Viliv X70 UMPC? You should, it rocks. Dynamism is gearing up for the launch of the mobile PC by announcing a special kit for the first 777 preorders. The presale will start on July 6th at 1pm EST so be sure to mark your gCal. The X70′s little brother, the S5, went very fast and this model will probably go quicker. → Read More
We just unboxed the new Viliv X70 last Friday and spent all weekend with the UMPC. Overall we’re mighty impressed at all this little guy can do for the price. It’s not perfect and has some quirks, but overall it’s a solid package. Our pros and cons after the jump. → Read More
We just got your Viliv X70 straight from South Korea and it’s a beauty. We’re going to play around with it for a few days and report back once we have a solid feel for the device. Until then, feel free to browse through the picture gallery and leave any questions you might have about the device in the comments. Our first impression? OMG it rocks. → Read More
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… → Read More
