The Viliv S7, everyone

Viliv is back again with yet another UMPC for the Korean market. Inside, the hardware is about on par with the X70 that I just reviewed with 1024 x 600 touchscreen, an Intel Atom Z520, 1GB of RAM, a 32GB SSD hard drive, and Windows XP. The S7 is equipped with a physical keyboard which should make it a tad easier to tweet. There is a chance though that by the time Viliv imports the UMPC to the States, we might get a slightly better model.

JKKmobile is reporting that some international models will sport faster CPUs, 3G modems, and Windows 7 via a free upgrade from Vista. I’m just hoping that Viliv ditched the crappy Intel GMA 500 chipset and went with something that can at least handle YouTube and Hulu. I don’t think that’s too much to ask.
