We came across a Viliv S5 UMPC user who posted a series of Videos on YouTube showing how he uses the S5.
Note that he has Windows XP Tablet PC edition installed on the system. The Viliv comes out of the box with the Windows XP Home and Windows XP Tablet PC Edition is not available direct to the general public. If you like the idea of using the Tablet Input Panel (TIP) on the Viliv S5 you can run Windows 7 on it. It is tricky to install windows 7 on the S5, so if you aren’t an advanced user we recommend using professionals (like us).
This series of videos will give you some ideas of how you can use the S5.

We carry only Australian stock with an Australian warranty. Whilst you will find that some companies will in ship direct from overseas, there is no local warranty support available for them. The cost of shipping the unit back and forth overseas if you have any issues will soon suck up any savings that you might make. So do yourself a favour and buy locally from us.
