The X10 has the longest battery life of any 10.2" Android tablet.
CES 2011 is going to kick off one hell of a year for the tablet. Viliv will be yet another manufacturer showing off at the big show. One slate wasn't enough for them, either. Which is why Viliv has three tablets coming to CES.

First there's the X7. It offers "anywhere connectivity" (3G or 4G?) and (based on the name) a 7" display. Android Market support is expected. Viliv isn't the only company launching very similar 7" and 10" slates. No one is quite sure which display-size will prove enduringly popular with consumers. One million 7" Galaxy Tabs have sold, so there's good reason to assume a future in the form-factor.
The Viliv X10 is a truly exciting device. All we know is that it has a 10.2" display and the "longest battery life" of any 10-inch Android tablet and a "1 GHz Samsung CPU". The iPad has shown battery life to be a crucial aspect of any tablet PC. It isn't truly mobile if it doesn't have longevity. Many manufacturers (including Samsung) give battery life secondary importance. The fact that Viliv placed a priority on it is cause for optimism.
Another cause for optimism is this video from Computex. It shows the X10 as a very fast, thin and powerful device. A graphics-intensive racing game is shown looking very smooth, and the awesome 1355x768 resolution definitely shows.

Last, there's the Viliv X70 Windows 7 Slate. It will be the "most slim and light Windows 7-based tablet in the world". Shooting to be the thinnest Windows 7 tablet is kind of like bragging about being the cleanest person at an outdoor music festival. Sure, you may be right, but the competition isn't exactly high. It is nice to see someone trying to make a Win 7 Slate that isn't a big ugly box, though.
