Viliv N5 looks like yet another winner
Since I know Jenn likes to leave the 10-inch devices to other sites, I had to find a way to sneak a photo of one onto Pocketables, and I finally figured out how. Since these two Viliv's were side-by-side and not bolted down, it was easy.
Resting atop the S10 blade is the hot little N5 that many of you wanted me to check out, and check it out I did. While the display devices were functional, they were missing the touchscreen that will be on shipping units. There is a glossy overlay over the screen and bezel, similar to a MacBook Pro. The N5 has the typical great Viliv build quality we are used to, as well as the bottom-mounted battery like the S5. The exterior is covered in a nice soft-touch finish, and the screen opens and closes with a satisfying click.
Compared to the UMID BZ and the Fujitsu UH900, this would be my first choice. It shares a similar location for the trackpad and buttons to the UH900, but the N5 actually has its mouse buttons on the top left corner of the keyboard.
This will be carried by Dynamism here in the US, and look for Jenn to get her hands on a review unit in the very near future too.
