S5 Size comparisons

Most of you that haven’t had the chance to see the Viliv S5 in real life are probably wondering just exactly how small this pocketable UMPC device is.

If you were as desperate as I was before I got my hands on this little gem, you would have googled the S5’s dimensions (84 * 154 * 24 mm, Weight 436 g) , traced this out on an A4 paper and did a bit of survival origami to construct paper dummy version of the unit?

OK..ok, most of you wouldn’t resort to such desperate lengths as I have..so here are some pictues I have taken that compares the S5 with familiar items such as a DVD cover.

s5 vs N800

As you can see, it is indeed compact in size and a bona fide handheld device. If anyone has owned a Nokia N800 tablet device (picture above, reference site: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=280824), well, the S5 is not much more bigger and packs a full Windows O/S!

With the portable size will come ergonomic challenges..our future blog posts will detail these challenges (ie, lack of a real keyboard, small screen size etc) and what had to be done to address these.

    Nice, hope you cover info on all the new SSD and upgrade options. I would like to see more info on your usage scenario, how it works well, what you would change, and how life with this device compares to other devices you have owned.
