The price could be a little high on this one at launch but it competes well with the UMID M1 UMPC. Battery life of 10 hours is a real bonus. Combine this with a Mifi and you're good to go! On the Ascii.co.jp video (see below) we're impressed with the load time (10-seconds for ascii.co.jp on a Firefox browser) and the embedded Flash video.

UMID mbook SE, 4.8 inch, 366 grams (0.81 lbs)
Tainell T500, 5.0 inch, 450 grams (0.99 lbs)
With very similar appearance and features to the Viliv S5, this may have to compete on price. No information on the on-screen-keyboard at this stage. Windows7 may be the solution here.
Inkia 500, 4.8 inch, 350 grams (0.77 lbs)
Lluon Mobbit, 4.8 inch, 375 grams (0.83 lbs)
Raon Digital Everun S8S, 4.8 inch, 460 grams (1.01 lbs)
We like the Everun! Flash disk, auto screen rotate, good screen brightness and the ability to upgrade with HSDPA or EVDO. Prices are very competitive and there's a good range of accessories. Class-leading battery life. On the negative side, the Everun has problems decoding ost video formats apart from MPEG-4. This is no desktop replacement but performs very well and is highly recommended as a mobile internet device.
Viliv S5, 4.8 inch, 395 grams (0.87 lbs)
Very nice pocketable PMP-style device with excellent battery life, near-desktop speed browsing and high-end media capabilities. GPS is also included which enables an all-in-one navigation package. The on-screen keyboard uses haptic feedback to improve the experience although it`s not as good as a real keyboard in our opinion. We would have liked to have seen a media slot and an external mic as this has potential as a mobile Skype client.
Raon Digital Everun (S60H), 4.8 inch, 490 grams (1.08 lbs)
