Viliv X70 UMPC priced
Online electronics retailer Dynamism is now letting shoppers pre-order the Viliv X70 Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC), and its base price is revealed by the online product page. The device has a 7-inch, 1024x600 touchscreen display, and packs a 16GB or 32GB solid state drive, which is partly responsible for the quick, five-second boot-up time of the pre-loaded Windows XP operating system. The base configuration makes do with a 1.2GHz Intel Atom CPU, while a 1.3GHz Atom is optional. All versions get 1GB of DDR2 RAM.
Other common features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR and a built-in GPS sensor. The battery can reportedly provide over five hours of movie playback or six days of standby time. A 3G HSPA modem is an option.
Connections on the 1.45lb device include audio and video inputs and outputs, a USB port and USB Link (Built in Data Transfer function). There is an integrated microphone, along with a 1.3-megapixel webcam and an SDHC memory card.
Availability and exact pricing for the different versions are still on the drawing board, but the importer confirms that prices will start at just $599, which is identical to the price of the smaller Viliv S5 device. [via Pocketables]
