As you might have seen from the ‘tweets’ and Flickr photos, we spent some time at the Intel Pavillion as they were setting up. One of the highlights was the Viliv S7, the ‘netvertible’ with the 1.8Ghz Atom processor and long battery life. Fortunately for us, the battery was charged and we were able to get a good video down.
The UI isn’t complete yet but you can see that Viliv are aiming for a UI that is very similar to the Origami Experience. The keyboard is high quality and usable as both a table top and thumb-style keyboard. The touch pad (top-right above keyboard) is well positioned for two-handed use supports tap-to-click. There’s a good range of ports and if the battery really is as high capacity as the previous reports and specifications have led us to believe, it will last for 5-7 hours on a charge depending on the kind of work you are doing.
More details, specifications and links for the Viliv S7 can be found on the UMPCPortal product page.
