Viliv S5 Unboxing. Live session to follow.

Posted on 09 March 2009, Last updated on 11 November 2019 by

It looks even better now than it did at CeBIT last week and as an extra bonus, there was a great suprise for me when I unboxed it. The Viliv S5 I received today came not only with a beautiful leather case but with a complete car kit and protective plastic housing. And to top it all off, the supplied headphones are really good. You know that when the headphones are good, someone has really put some thought into the quality!

The version I have here is the 1.3Ghz version with 60GB drive and 1GB RAM, GPS, Wifi and Bluetooth. DMB is also included but of course, it’s not useable here in Europe. There’s no SKU on the box so I can’t tell you what version it is but I suspect it’s a Korean retail package with English Windows.

If you’re reading this on March 9th, note that we’re running a live video and chat session at At 2000hrs CET we’re running a podcast and afterwards I’ll be going through some tests and answering questions. Join us!

Here’s the unboxing video from There’s a YouTube version and an uncut live Ustream version too.

More information on the S5

Stay tuned for more details, reviews and overviews. The S5 will be going with me to SXSW later this week so check UMPCPortal and MIDMoves regularly for updates.

Update: There’s a few S5 images in the gallery now.
