"Viliv S5 Premium Air MID": premium UMPC with GPS?

Now Viliv is jumping on the UMPC train too: since several weeks the long-announced "VILIV S5 MID" is available in several configurations. The "Premium Air" version sports a 16GB SSD, 4.8" touchscreen LCD with a resolution of 1024x600 pixels, and full 3G/HSDPA functionality - whereas the "normal" versions come equipped with 30 or 60 GByte 1.8" HDD instead, 800x480 LCD only, and no wireless broadband at all.
Both models have the same 24Wh battery, allowing for 5-6 hours of continuous use, and are available with either WinXP, Vista or Linux (unspecified distro) preinstalled, both weigh around 380 grams and have 802.11 b/g wifi, bluetooth 2.0 and external video connectors (for VGA, S-Video and Composite-video cables!), the whole controlled by a "Silverthorne" Intel Atom clocked at 1.33GHz and supported by 1GB RAM. Graphics are rendered by the GMA500 chipset. Also common to both models is a built-in GPS for easy on-the-road navigation. Prices starting at 599$ for the basic version. Design looks mature. I think I'd want such a thing if it wasn't for the small display..
