Viliv N5 priced and shipping soon in Japan


Two configurations of the long-awaited Viliv N5 have just been officially spec'd and priced by Hanwha Japan.

While both versions have a 4.8-inch WSVGA touch screen, 1.33GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB RAM, 1.3-megapixel webcam, and up to 6 hours of runtime in common, they differ in their operating systems, SSD capacity, and inclusion of GPS. The Viliv N5 Standard (62,800 yen/~$695) will come with Windows XP Home and a 16GB SSD, while the Viliv N5 Premium (67,800 yen/~$751) will have Windows 7 Starter Edition, a 32GB SSD, and integrated GPS.

If neither of those models strike your fancy, Japanese retailer BRULE is selling units with Windows 7 Home Premium, a 64GB SSD, and GPS for 79,800 yen (~$884). There's also a special launch sale going on that includes, as Google Translate puts it, "a single standard battery attached to the 8GB microSD." I'm not sure what that means, but BRULE expects to begin shipping the N5 in mid-June.

US pricing hasn't been formally announced yet, but it shouldn't be as high as the straight yen-to-dollar conversions. We should find out for sure soon, as it can't be much longer before we hear all the details of a release closer to home.
