Viliv has finally confirmed pricing and availability for the long-awaited S10 Blade netbook. The convertible tablet netbook is now available for pre-order in North America for $699, coming with Windows XP. This particular model won’t include three-point multitouch output as promised, but other models are on the way.
Later iterations of the S10 Blade netbook will share the same basic features – a 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 resolution resistive, multitouch touchscreen, 1 GB RAM, Bluetooth 2.0 and a webcam. It packs either a 1.6 GHz or 2.0 GHz Intel Atom CPU and a variety of storage options: a 60 GB HDD or SSDs in 32 and 64 GB versions.
A number of the models will get HSPA 3G modules. Expect battery life to run as long as 10 hours.
We’re still in the dark about shipping dates, so keep your eyes peeled.
