    Looks nice. Price is comparable with the Guru. Only thing that seems limited is expansion. We as hobbyist know that having the ability to add-on is vital for future innovation.

    that is very true, however, arent most if not all additions are USB ?
    with a nice 7 port USB hub i think this UMPC should serve very well as a carputer. it has pretty good specs for a car PC, as a matter of fact it looks like it was designed for that purpose.
    and it also offers 3G connectivity...

    yes but having multiple items on a hub as well as multiple hubs causes headaches that a non-hobbyist wouldnt want to deal with.

    it is not that new but only now available in the us (and europe). it appeared in feb 09 in hong kong.

    do you think it is possible to attach an external usb 2.5 disk withouth additional power than from the viliv device.

    how does it compare against the new archos 5 internet table. archos has fm and more disk capacity models (up to 500 gb) and n draf wireless. viliv has webcam, hard buttons and toogle, windows xp, instant on.

    hmmm which one?

    personally i dont see the use of wireless and such disk capacity in a car.
    personally i believe viliv would serve better in a car enviorment. i believe it should be able to power an external disk , but it will drain the battery faster, but since this isnt a concern in the car you should have no problems.
    it seems though as the viliv has only one USB port so attaching a hub to it would be the best solution

    This is actually very interesting, but I've seen the video on the Street Deck Blog:

    Lots of glare, definitely not transflective, say, as some iPaqs? I wonder how it fares against the Xenarc 700 TSV or the standard Lilli 629GL

    Nice looking machine, but weak processing power and very pricey.
    If those two problem are not a concern for you, definitely a good solution.
    usb expansion should be an easy thing, even if you have to hack up something to provide power to the USB ports for those hardware that requires extra juice.
