Yukyung Technologies used last week's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to introduce four mobile computing devices bearing its Viliv brand. One of these Windows-oriented devices — the Viliv P3 PMP (portable media player) — also runs Android, and offers an 800MHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, WiFi, and a 3.7-inch AMOLED display.

Measuring 4.5 x 2.5 x 0.4 inches, Yukying's P3 (below, left) resembles a cellular phone, but doesn't include a broadband radio. Since the device does reportedly provide web browsing (via WiFi), you can think of it as Viliv's version of Apple's iPod Touch.

According to Yukyung, the P3 runs both Android and Windows CE 6.0 — it may be booted into either — on an 800MHz ARM Cortex-A8 CPU (manufacturer unspecified). The PMP comes with an unstated amount of RAM, as well as 8GB, 16GB, or 32GB of flash storage, and a microSD slot, the company adds.

The Viliv P3 is notable for its 3.7-inch AMOLED (active matrix organic light emitting diode) display), which offers 800 x 600 resolution. AMOLED displays typically offer better contrast and more saturated colors than LED displays, and are said to be easier on the eyes.

Yukyung says the P3 includes WiFi, as well as an optional receiver for Korea's T-DMB (terrestrial digital multimedia broadcasting) television service. Other features are said to include an accelerometer and a vibration motor.

At CES, Yukyung also announced three related Windows-based products, including an HD5 PMP that offers a five-inch display and runs only Windows CE 6.0. Yukyung's N5 and S10 Blade devices, meanwhile, put Atom processors into clamshell and tablet form factors, respectively.
