S7 Unboxing, hands-on and Q&A Videos.

Updated on 16 September 2009 by

Thanks to the 1500+ people that dropped into the live session last night. It was a huge success with an average 150 people logged into the chat session over the 3 hours that we were broadcasting. It’s clear there’s a lot of interest in the convertible UMPCs/Netbooks.

The first part of the session last night was dedicated to the Viliv S7. I unboxed a fresh S7, went over the device and then we discussed some detail. JKK then compared it with the T91, another excellent and flexible mobile productivity choice.

We recorded the session in four parts. all are embedded below.

I’ll add the other 3 parts of the show once they have transferred to YouTube but if you can’t wait, you can find the originals on Ustream here. Note that these videos are recorded from live transmissions so the quality is not as good as it is with our pre-recorded videos although you do get the advantage of on-the-spot opinions from two experts.

Full S7 specifications and links to other S7-related content available here.

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4

I don’t have any first impressions to post yet apart from saying that there are no show-stoppers so far.

Related: Jenn at Pocketables also has the S7 as does James of JKOnTheRun.

    Fantastic! Thank you guys for putting these up. I’ve been looking for a laptop replacement as a light user – light office productivity. Given that my first portable computer weighed as much as I did at the time, 45 pounds in 1981, it is amazing we can discuss the difference between 800g and 960g. Love it!

    You mentioned VGA . . . oddly enough I end up using it almost every day for my clunky old projector.

    Good work on the videos fellas.
