    The UMID mbook SE ups the bar in the clamshell market

    UMID isn’t going to roll over and let the Viliv N5 take over the clamshell market. Nope, the there’s a new version of the mbook that trumps nearly every hardware spec found on Viliv’s current offering. Read More

    Photo set: The Viliv N5 with random objects


    The Viliv N5 is a tiny full-feature Windows 7 PC. It’s really staggering to think that this pocketable device efficiently runs a desktop OS and there aren’t many compromises, either. Anyway, here’s a photo set of the tiny N5 against random things I found around my desk that properly show the N5′s small dimensions. Read More

    The Viliv N5 gets priced and dated

    Interested in the Viliv N5 clamshell Windows PC? Well, pricing info for the handheld is finally available and it might cool your excitement a bit. It’s a tad pricey, but I must say that I’m really starting to enjoy the form factor after spending a few days with the N5. Read More

  • The Viliv N5 vs the UMID mbook BZ

    The Viliv N5 vs the UMID mbook BZ


    I have before me the two hottest clamshell PCs on the market: the Viliv N5 and the UMID mbook BZ. I’m not sure if hot is the right word seeing as I’m still not convinced there’s even a market for these devices, but let’s move on. The two are very similar. They both share the same form factor, target demographic, and functions and so what follows is my quest to… Read More

    First impressions: Viliv N5 Ultra Mini Mobile PC

    Viliv is at it again. This time around the Korean manufacturer is going after the clamshell market with the N5. The self-described Ultra Mini Mobile PC is really just that — a truly mobile PC. This form factor isn’t exactly new as I just looked at the main competitor, the UMID mbook bz, just a few months back so I’m actually curious if the N5 brings anything novel to the… Read More

    The Viliv X10 Tablet surfaces at Computex, spotted running Android

    Viliv is keeping the tablet love running with the X10 Tablet. The upcoming kit builds upon Viliv’s previous successful tablets, the S5 and X70. The X10 is entering the world now ruled by the iPad. The tablet marker is a bit different than when the other two models launched, but it looks like the Viliv X10 is ready to play with the big dog.

    The Viliv P3 Prime shows up as expected

    The Viliv P3 made its first appearance at CES 2010. The company even had a demo unit for everyone to play with but it was just that, a demo. We couldn’t see the Windows CE/Android dual booting or if the unit could actually play back 1080p content like Viliv states. Maybe now that the PMP is featured on Viliv’s site, its launch is right around the corner. But then if Viliv follows… Read More

    The Viliv N5 is now launching in June

    I’ve been patiently waiting for the Viliv N5 MID to launch after first getting a glimpse at it before CES ’10. I was hoping to be able to check it out this month as a rumor suggested back in March. But apparently that’s not going to happen. The little Windows 7 clamshell has been pushed back to June.

    The Viliv HD5 PMP breaks loose, released in South Korea

    We’re big Viliv fans here and are glad to see the companies first PMP hit the market. They are one of the few companies that out nearly identical products in the states as Korea. The don’t dumb-down its products for the American consumer. Nope, we get all the fun stuff, too. Like the HD5 PMP. Now, we just need a valid reason to need a PMP in 2010. Read More

  • Review: Viliv S10 Blade convertible netbook

    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… 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… Read More

  • Viliv makes the N5 and S10 Blade official

    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… 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… 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… Read More
