Unofficial figures make CES a big success

Walking the show floor at CES this year it was clear that there were more people there than the last couple of years (and most of them seemed to be standing in front of the Microsoft stand watching other attendees play Kinect). The Intel, Motorola, Samsung, Sony, LG and Panasonic stands were also crowded all week, taxi and bus lines were far longer than last year, show rates at hotels sold out early in December and most restaurants had queues for tables again - which we hadn't seen since 2008.

$599 Viliv S5 ultra portable PC is looking good

I owned a couple UMPC devices in the past (Samsung Q1 and Fujitsu U810), but then decided to stick with a MSI Wind netbook for my mobile computing needs. James has me actually considering a new slate ultra-portable computer though with his extensive posts on the upcoming Viliv S5 device. This computer is quite compact and has some great specs such as the 1.33 GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 60GB hard drive, 4.8 inch 1024x600 resolution touch screen display, WiFi, Bluetooth, integrated GPS receiver, and Windows XP.

MobileTechRoundup show #138, Doesn't anyone else have a Nerd Club at work?

James, Kevin, and I spent a bit more time than planned talking about the upcoming iPhone 3G on MobileTechRoundup show #138, but we eventually did move on to talk about lots more in the world of mobile tech. I talked about my experiences with upgrading the Nokia N78 over the air and James is going to try it out soon too. How much can be said about WiMAX and how much will it cost? Kevin let me know about Ubuntu MID Edition and I may actually load it on my Fujitsu U810 since the Intel A110 processor is supported. Great news that the public beta of Opera Mobile 9.5 will soon be available for Windows Mobile and UIQ owners. We also introduced listeners to the Nerd Club.

Willcom D4 runs with an Intel Atom processor in a sleek form factor

I am a big fan of ultra portable devices and particularly enjoy using my Fujitsu U810 with long battery life. I just read about the Willcom D4 UMPC over on the CNET Asia Crave blog and have to say this looks like one impressive device. It is one of the first devices running with an Intel Atom processor. Akihabara News was able to get some hands-on time with the device and posted over 80 photos showing it off in all its glory.
