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.
