If you're looking for a 3G-enabled Windows 7 computer that easily fits into your pocket, then you'd be hard-pressed to find anything better than the Viliv N5. With its fast SSD, microSD card slot, integrated GPS, optical mouse, WSVGA touchscreen, 3G voice support, HD video playback capabilities, full-size ports, and great battery life, the clamshell PC (1.33GHz Atom, 1GB RAM) is second to none.

And because the N5 is the best Atom-based UMPC that money can buy right now, Pocketables and Dynamism want you to have one!
