    Review: Viliv S10 Blade convertible netbook

    I hate it when a product like the Viliv S10 Blade looks so good as a concept but fails to live up to its potential. The S10 has a late-model Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, and a multitouch 10-inch screen. Should be solid, right? Wrong. Read More

    Best Buy now hawking Viliv's wares

    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

  • Exclusive first look at the Viliv S10 Blade

    Exclusive first look at the Viliv S10 Blade

    Laptops are becoming smaller and smaller and after we saw and lusted after the Sony Z series we were curious how the new Viliv S10 would perform. First off, it looks great. It’s very slim and the battery life is promising thus far. Is it an iPad replacement? Sure. It’s light enough and small enough and quite cute. Read More

    Video Demo: Google Reader Play is clearly meant for a tablet computer

    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

    Viliv makes the N5 and S10 Blade official

    Feel free to check out the Viliv presser after the jump, but the only thing in there that wasn't mentioned in the earlier leak is that that both models will be sold in brick and mortor stores. That's a first for a Viliv product and will likely dramaticly increase awearness. But we still don't have a price on these models yet. Stay tuned. Read More

    Specs and pics of the Viliv N5, S10, HD5, and P3 surface pre CES 2010

    It looks like Viliv has a lot planned for CES 2010 this week. In true Internet fashion, most, if not all, of Viliv's upcoming products leaked out today. The only thing missing are the prices and release dates. At least we have the specs for not only the multi-touch convertable S10 Blade netbook and N5 clamshell, but also all the info on the OLED, Android-equipped P3 and 10809-capable HD5… Read More

  • Review: Viliv S7 Premium

    Review: Viliv S7 Premium

    True story: About two months back I was walking through my house with the then-new Viliv S7 convertible netbook. I started babbling to my wife while she was tending to the kids about how much I loved this little netbook. Even though she clearly couldn’t care less, I went on to proclaim that if Apple would have gotten in on the netbook craze, its model probably would have been something a… Read More

  • Hands-on with the Blump.it Firefox plug-in on a Viliv X70

    Hands-on with the Blump.it Firefox plug-in on a Viliv X70

    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

  • MID Moves goes hands-on with the Viliv S10 Blade

    Chippy, over at UMPC Portal, got to spend some quality time with the upcoming Viliv S10 Blade at IDF and seems impressed. That's saying something as previously he has reviewed the Viliv S5, X70, and currently has in house - like us - the S7. Personally I'm finding that the small form factor of the 7-inch S7 is the perfect netbook size, but some folks might like the bigger 10-inch screen the S10… Read More
