We were able to get up close and personal with both of these tablets and we can vouch that they do indeed run smoothly. Viliv says they are trying to work with Sprint to release the X7 on their network, but in their press release it's stated that both of the devices will either land on WiMAX, 3G HSPA, or EVDO networks. Both will support bluetooth and have an "always-on" internet connection so checking email and surfing the internet will always be snappy.

Android 2.2 Froyo was preloaded on the device but they hope to have Android 3.0 Honeycomb up and running if at all possible before their releases in March and April. The two tablets will contain stand-alone GPS, a 3MP rear facing camera, and a 1.3MP front facing camera for video conferencing. Viliv also states these two tablets will have the longest lasting battery life that any Android Tablet has ever had; but of course we couldn't test this feature.
