Gauging interest in the Viliv S7 mini convertible


Is it just my imagination or has interest in the Viliv S7, which was once quite high, fizzled out before the Atom-based mini convertible has started shipping to customers? When I did my unboxing and size comparisons a few weeks ago, I think it's safe to say that no one cared. Since then, I've received no inquiries on when my full review would be done or even what I thought about the UMPC, which never happens when a new gadget comes my way.

Several other sites received their S7 review units around the same time I got mine, so perhaps information/coverage overload is to blame. Or maybe it's Gizmodo's negative "review" or PC World's ridiculous recommendation to consider the Samsung Mondi instead of the S7 "if storage isn't a big deal." Whatever it is, it seems to me that interest in the 7-inch convertible has taken a serious nosedive.

If this is true for you, then what happened since the S7 was first unveiled over a year ago that ending up turning you off or changing your mind about it? The big bezel? The price? The long wait? Another product?
