      I can’t say anything more about the project until early next month, but the GBM community will be the first to know.

    In your review, if you can, please try blu-ray playback. I’ve read that it is supposed to be able to, and I’ve read some one played back a ripped version, but that to me is not the same thing as playing it off a disk.

    I’ve had success with that on my Asus N10j, using this drive :

    And was wondering if the Viliv S5 could do the same thing.

      @LeeN, I do have an external Blu-ray drive. What software are you using for playback on your N10j?

    Great little machine. I’m a pure tablet user, no keyboard or mouse at all anymore. I’d love to see how the haptic keyboard works, especially as compared to the excellent handwriting recognition I normally use (like right now). I tried to get one in both of Dymamism’s presale events, no luck in either.

    I have a copy of PowerDVD 7 that I use on my systems. From what I have heard PowerDVD or it’s components were used in playing back ripped blu-ray movies.

    I guess the only weird thing would be that you couldn’t hook up the Viliv S5 to a HDTV to test. From what I understand, blu-ray movie playback requires hdcp and either HDMI or DVI. Ripped blu-ray most likely doesn’t require that. I know nvidia supports hdcp, I would think if a device supports blu-ray decompression that it would also support hdcp. So it may just be a matter of having HDMI or DVI, but I haven’t heard of the Viliv S5 providing an adapter for those yet, and I am not sure if it would work through VGA.
