The Viliv S10 Blade is a 10 inch netbook with a touchscreen display and a swivel that lets you use the computer in laptop or netbook mode. It’s not clear whether it will be available from a US distributor anytime soon, but if you’re willing to pay the somewhat high price of importing one from Korea, Dynamism will be taking orders for the Blade soon for $699 and up.

Update: It turns out Dynamism is the US launch partner. So it looks like the base price is going to be $699 at launch.

The base model has a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 HD display, a 60GB  hard drive, 1GB of RAM, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 CPU, and Windows XP. Optional upgrades includ Windows 7 Home Premium, a faster 2GHz Atom Z550 processor, and a 32GB or 64GB solid state disk. You can also get the Viliv S10 Blade with a 3G HSPA modem.

Dynamism says the laptop has a 10 hour battery.

At $699, the S10 Blade is definitely one of the more expensive Atom-based convertible tablets on the horizon. You can already pick up a Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t for $549 or less. And the Asus Eee PC  T101MT should be available soon as well.But the Viliv S10 Blade is a nice looking machine which promises excellent battery life and decent performance.

You can see some more photos and check out my firsthand impressions of the Blade in my hands-on post from CES.

  2. Ooh. I was waiting for this — the combination of resolution and battery life was very appealing — but $700 for the base price seems high for me. Looks as though it’s going to be the Lenovo S10-3t or the Asus T101MT.

  3. My biggest question is: Although this doesn’t have a stylus, if I were to use a stylus, would the touchscreen respond?

  4. I have been waiting for this for months but now but wonder if these specs justify the price. Even if it has a great form factor and quality construction, $700 for a xp system, z530, and 1gb is damn steep.
