Summary: Viliv and Amazon both get 5 stars on this one. Although I've only had the device for a day or so I can tell it will be really useful. This is a computer running Windows XP that fits in your pocket. Battery life is incredible. This absolutely kills the OQO 02 I had a while back. The screen is gorgeous and responds well to touch. This package includes a carrying case, extra battery, car charger, and car mount (very nice). The build quality seems exceptional too.
Summary: bought for hospital rounds to replace my palm pda. text is very small. internal gps works wtih microsoft streets. avi plays very well. great for trips and airport. plan to buy x70 when ssd drive greater than 32 gig.
Summary: I gave it 4/5 stars because it is missing one thing EVERY portable device should have. A built-in MICROPHONE. The only way to to get sound into this device is to use a bluetooth headset. I can overlook a a missing SD/miniSD slot but not a mic. Trying to answer Skype calls is an annoyance on this device. Need to dictate a document? Better get your headset paired up. Forget about voice commands for any GPS software you have.
The mobile internet in your pocket, full computer, battery lasts forever

Summary: I've been using the Viliv S5 for several months and absolutely love the thing. What makes the Viliv S5 more appealing than other devices its' size is that it runs Windows XP - it's regular computer in a 5" form factor. The touch interface that Viliv has put together, from the iCube navigation, to the FastWeb browser make it a joy to use with touch. The best thing about the Viliv S5 is how long the battery lasts - about 6 hours.
