CeBIT '06: Viliv P1 and N70

We were so happy to see the Viliv P1 on display here that we kind of scared the guy at the booth. The PMP is much bigger than I expected, with dimensions in the husky PSP range rather than the slick iRiver range. The video quality was excellent and the UI was pleasing and easy to understand. At a tech show chock full of PMPs, MP3 players, and other junk that just didn't "get it," it's interesting to see that Viliv has a wow factor that they other guys can't touch.

The N70 is like the PMP's in-car buddy. It's basically a GPS unit with media functions and has the same bulbous/laquered design. As someone mentioned in one of the comments before, "Is innovation now just industrial design?" I'm going to have to say "Yes." If it doesn't work well and look great, it won't sell. Anyone can OEM a flash drive. But can anyone make one we'd like to buy?
