After finally becoming available for pre-order last week, Dynamism has informed us that the 3G version of the Viliv N5 is now in stock and eligible for same-day shipping to US customers for $799. The $649 non-3G version is still expected on the 19th.
This is great news for those who have been patiently waiting for the small and sleek 3G-enabled UMPC/mini notebook that Jenn proclaimed as the best truly portable Windows PC on the market in her great review. Although the long wait has meant the N5 will be entering a much more crowded/competitive MID market with some excellent potential alternatives in the form of Android MIDs and smartphones, I still feel it is one of the best choices for those who need Windows in a small yet highly usable form factor.
As a reminder, Dynamism's special launch event where they will include a free extra battery (worth $50) with every N5 order is still on until tomorrow, so don't spend too long deciding if you're still on the fence!
