Korean device maker Viliv isn’t exactly a household name in the West. But over the past few years the company has produced some of the most interesting portable computing devices around. That includes the 5 inch Viliv N5 Windows computer with a QWERTY keyboard and the Viliv S10 Blade convertible Windows tablet. Now it looks like the company could be getting ready to close its doors.
UMPC Portal has received tips from multiple sources suggesting that Viliv will soon close up shop. That’s despite the fact that Viliv introduced three new Android and Windows tablets earlier this year.
The two Android tablets have yet to materialize, but the Viliv X70 Windows 7 tablet has started to show up at retail web sites. The tablet features a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.5 GHz Intel Atom Oak Trail processor, and a 32GB solid state drive. I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for it to ship though.
