Need a device that provides more horsepower than a smartphone but is smaller than a netbook? Viliv’s N5 “Ultra Mini Mobile PC” may be the device for you.
With a 1.3GHz Intel Atom Z520 processor and 1GB of DDR2 SDRAM, the N5 can run regular versions of Windows 7. Better yet, the device measures only 6.8” x 3.4” x 1.0” (127mm x 86mm x 25mm) – which is pretty close to being pocketable. Sure, the N5’s 4.8” LCD touchscreen is a bit on the smaller side, but with a 1024 x 600 resolution the screen will be decent for most common computer tasks.
The N5 also features a QWERTY keyboard that’s tiny, yet appears to be functional. The device also has an internal 3G modem so you don’t have to worry about finding a WiFi hotspot.
You can pick up an N5 from importers such as Dynamism for $649. The device passed through the FCC today, so we may see a formal launch of the N5 in the United States soon.
We always seem to be impressed at the devices developed by Korean manufacturer Viliv. Today, the company passed their S10 ‘Blade’ tablet through the FCC, and so far it looks good.
The device rocks a Intel Atom Z550 running at 2.0 GHz, a 10.1” resistive touch screen, 64 GB SSD, WiFi, Bluetooth and optional 3G. The S10 measures 10.23” x 7.28” x 0.67-1.02”, and weighs in at 2.67 pounds.
You can currently purchase the S10 from importers like Dynamism. Pricing starts at $699.
