I got a chance to play with the Viliv S10 Blade at IDF 2009 and shot a quick hands-on video. It has a high-resolution 10″ resistive touch screen, up to 64GB SSD and a 1.33GHz Intel Atom processor. Perhaps the most impressive thing about this is the 10-hour claimed battery life with the standard battery.
I’m usually skeptical of lofty battery claims, but my Viliv S5 comes pretty darn close to the six-hours that the company advertises. Like the Viliv S5, the Viliv S10 has an on-screen keyboard and a touch-friendly environment for launching apps and playing media.
The entry level S10 Blade will cost about $500, but pricing isn’t nailed down. The model will be available There will be at least three SKUs shipping in time for the holidays.
This isn’t a true Tablet PC, but it’s yet another example of a touch product arriving just in time for Windows 7.
