CES video: A netbook that fits in your palm, the Viliv N5

LAS VEGAS — Lots of netbooks here at the Consumer Electronics Show, and here’s one that stands out in a category of its own. The Viliv N5, made by Yukyung Technologies, weighs less than a pound and fits in the palm of your hand, but is powerful enough to run Windows 7 Starter.

Yukyung, a South Korean company, is calling it a mobile Internet device. It features a touchscreen, an Intel Atom processor, Web cam, 1 GB of RAM, 32 GB in its solid state hard drive, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and up to five hours of battery life. It doesn’t have a launch date or price yet.

Some of you may recognize this as similar to the palmtop computers of yore.

This is Ken Lee, vice president of sales and marketing for North America. The footage of this vastly improves once I turn the camera around on Lee.
