Viliv S5 mid

Posted on 20 August 2008 by



This is the S5 MID from Viliv. (Specifications page)

The S5 is very much a PMP-style device but provides for fast Internet browsing and good media playback capabilities. There’s a 3G option possible (depending on territory) and a 24wh battery that is said to provide 5-6 hours of video playback. Given that the Gigabyte M528 can do 3 hours on a 10Wh battery, there’s no reason to doubt that. I’ll get the details into the database as soon as I can but for now, check out the presentation video I made. I like this one a lot. No keyboard but totally pocketable.

Keep an eye out later for a video of a new device, the S7. Its  bigger, has a full keyboard, swivel touchscreen, has huge battery life and is very very slick!!

Update: I’ve just uploaded some new pics into the gallery

    viliv at one time had a lust-tastic “video iPod” that never got to the U.S.:

    I doubt this MID will reach the U.S.. Looks interesting, though.

    In the video you mention this running Windows XP but unless I’m totally mistaken the UI very much looks like Vista (start button, dock on the right, etc.)

    Lucien Reply:

    Yes at 1:48 I can see it’s Vista (see Vista’s re-arranged logoff/shutdown options). But also on the right it seems you’re seeing a Vista sidebar.

    Looks like perfect (retro) handheld gaming device with a control pad and hopefully fully (re)programmable buttons on the right.

    Viliv haven’t been selling any devices in the US, have they? I sure hope it will make it to US and Europe since seems great product.

    But if it’s using Vista or XP full version it’s not any more a MID according to Intel specifications, these are just small size UMPC.
