Advent’s Tegra 2 Vega budget tablet gets hands-on [Video]

Cheap Android tablets aren't anything new, but Advent's Vega promises to be a little different; a 10.1-inch Android 2.2 Froyo slate powered by NVIDIA's second-gen Tegra 2 chipset and priced at just £249.99 ($396).  Android Community managed to score some hands-on time with one of the first models in the country, and even had the chance to pit it against the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

Hannspree SN10T1 tablet hands-on [Video]

Hannspree SN10T1 tablet hands-on [Video]

Hannspree's Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet, the SN10T3, isn't expected to hit the market until Q3 2011, but the company had the freshly-released SN10T1 on show here at IFA 2011 today. Based around a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 touchscreen and NVIDIA's Tegra 2 processor, the slate may run Android 2.2 Froyo but it's well hidden under a custom UI. Still, that decision has left the SN10T1 missing a few key features which may take some of the shine off of its low price tag.

Let's start this fine Monday with a launch straight into space: once with an Android Device, another time with a Samsung balloon full of paper planes. Next lets get back to Earth with the continuation of the 3D wave with some Tegra 2 3D Chips that'll be popping up this spring.
