Viliv, the Korean manufacturer normally known for its MIDs, is showing off a new netbook at IDF (Intel Developer Forum) 2009. The S10 Blade is a convertible 10-inch touchscreen netbook that will ship with a 10-hour battery and launch with Windows 7 Home Premium.

Impressively, the Viliv S10 has a high-resolution (1366 x 768) display and the high-capacity battery will sit flush with the chassis.
