Advent’s Tegra 2 Vega tablet gets unofficial Market access

The Advent Vega Android tablet has acquired unofficial Android Market access, along with Gmail, Google Maps with Street View and Voice Search support, thanks to a new ROM. The work of MoDaCo's Paul O'Brien, the replacement firmware adds Car Home, Calendar, Contacts, Genie (News and Weather), Google Talk and YouTube support as well, and is offered with an optional "performance pack" to speed up the NVIDIA Tegra 2 powered slate.

Bizarrely, this means it's easier to get access to the Android Market than it is to pick up a retail Advent Vega; the tablet is still out of stock at PC World, Dixons and Currys, though we're told it's expected to return to shelves - in limited numbers - by the end of this week. More details on the tablet itself in our hands-on report.
