After Kohjinsha SC3 got my attention from its design, it failed me completely when coming to battery life--2 hours or so. Now Viliv, the company I also never heard of, come up with Viliv S7 claiming that it would suck less juice and be able to achieve 7-9 hours on single charge!
And more importantly its form factor won any of their class, IMHO.
Whoa! What an impressive first look from UMPCportal.com. It's Atom-based device, 1GB RAM, 30/60 GB HDD, 7" touch screen, 1024px * 600px, 830g (including battery) I couldn't ask for more.
In fact, I don't believe if this baby could really achieve 7-9 hours life. But by this approximation, I just wish it would get up to 5-hour-battery-life and that would be enough for my need indeed. If the price is right (less than a grand, please), I won't hesitate to grab one.
Stay tuned! this will be out around the beginning of next year. I hope this company could make this dream come true.
