Viliv S5 Premium 3G unboxing video

Regular visitors will know that we’ve looked at a number of Netbook or UMPC’s in the past and also a few MID’s our current favourite probably being the Dell Mini9 that we reviewed a few months ago.

A couple of weeks ago a company called Dynamism sent me an email asking if I would like to review one of their newer products, the Viliv S5 Premium. To be honest I’d never heard of Viliv before but when the offered to send me their latest S5 with a built in 3G SIM-card I certainly wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity.


The Viliv S5 premium 3G


So having done a little bit of homework I discovered that the Viliv S5 is a pretty well spec’d MID/UMPC that looks a little bit like a smaller version of the Samsung Q1 (a little). There’s a 4.8" WXGA touch screen (1024×600), 32GB solid state drive (128GB SSD coming soon), 1GB Ram, Windows XP, Bluetooth, WiFi and perhaps most notably, build in SiRF Star III GPS chipset. In fact the S5 premium comes with a neat car mounting kit so that you can use it as an in-car SatNav device.

This all comes in a package weighing just over 400 grams! In fact Viliv use the line ‘A True Pocket PC’ and it seems to be true. Well, as long as you have fairly large pockets!

I’m going to be using the Viliv S5 over the next few weeks, hoping to try it out as an in-car SatNav as well as seeing how it performs as an every day portable PC. I’ll eave you for now with the unboxing video which I hope will give you some idea of the size of this thing as well as showing you what a great selection of accessories you get with it!
