The fine folks at Dynamism kindly arranged for Viliv to send me a brand new S5 Premium MID from Korea for testing. While I get to know the Atom-based unit and put together my full review, have a look at what was inside the stack of boxes that arrived this afternoon.
Retail versions of the Viliv S5 will not contain the car kit or leather carrying case you see below, but you may be able to get it free, along with a spare battery, if you preorder from Dynamism. The special launch event will be held on April 27th (1 p.m. EST) and is limited to the first 200 orders.
The leather case is of very high quality, with red cross-stitching and thoughtful attention to detail. Here's a closer look at it:
I'll explore the hardware in much greater depth and provide a comprehensive look at the S5 Premium's features/capabilities in my complete review. What follows is just a silent sneak peek at some of what's to come.
Check back later for my full review. In the meantime, visit the Viliv S5 forum to ask questions and read what some S5 owners are saying about the pocketable MID.
Update: Viliv S5 review now available!
The Viliv S5 Premium will be available from Dynamism for $599.
