I was already dreaming of the S10 when Viliv released the S7 – the S7 just didn’t suit my requirements..having to tiny a screen and too low a resolution.
The S10 squeezes 1366×768 high res..oh joy..:)

The picture is showing the tech I’m about to head off on a two day business trip with. I’m taking a lot of stuff and haven’t even packed clothes or anything yet.
But part of this trip is to demo mobile tech so I’m taking the X70 to demo a pure slate PC and I class it as a UMPC because it’s so light and compact. The other machine is my LG P100 convertible Tablet which is a desktop replacement machine because of the power it has but it’s over a kilogram with the extended battery and I have to use the extended battery because the standard one gives me an hour tops of use.
I have thumb drives, portable hard drive, bluetooth keyboard, power adapters, The Balckberry for work, the iPhone for everything else.
I’ll see what I use on this trip (besides the demo times) and see how I go just using the Viliv on the road. Maybe the lack of a keyboard is going to hurt, maybe the lack of inbuild 3G? Have to wait and see.
Good ole Laurence pointed out another interesting article – UMPCportal’s running a test using solar power to charge a X70.
Dynamism’s on the marketing campaign again and taking advantage of the CES frenzy, it’s releasing a couple of MIDs and UPMC.
Amongst them is the Eking S515..or in my eyes, the chinese cross b/w OQO and the Sharp Willcom.
Having used many an OQO and fondled a couple of Willcom D4s..I’m wondering what the built quality of the Eking will be compared to these high quality devices…
Initial thoughts…not impressed with the 800×480 res as most of the 5″ from other makers are 1024×600. Battery life’s not great at 3 hours..hard for this to stack up against the Viliv (for eg, S5) that does 5 hours..
