Advent’s Tegra 2 Vega Android tablet gets listed at retailer

Nov 16, 2010

UK retailer PC World is now listing the Advent Vega tablet, a Tegra 2 based 10-inch slate running Android 2.2 Froyo. The Vega is priced at £249, though currently neither online orders nor in-store reservations are being taken; eventually, your money will get you WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, HDMI connectivity and a bundled 4GB microSD card.

There's also USB, a webcam and microphone, together with a battery which Advent reckons is good for up to 16hrs of audio-only music playback, 6.5hrs of video playback, or four days of standby. The 10.1-inch WSVGA capacitive touchscreen supports multitouch gestures, and Advent have made some mild tweaks to the UI to suit the larger display.

We grabbed some hands-on time with the Vega last month, and came away tentatively impressed with what you get for the price. More information in the video below.
