ADVENT Vega Tegra Note 7 aims for UK with NVIDIA’s tablet design

We’ll be expecting a variety of manufacturers to release their own Note 7 devices here in the United States as well - sooner than later!

Advent Vega Update Brings Back Flash Player 10.1, and There Was Much Rejoicing

Advent Vega Update Brings Back Flash Player 10.1, and There Was Much Rejoicing

If you'll remember back in December of 2010, there was a bit of an upsetting announcement for those who had or were planning on obtaining the Advent Vega Android Tablet. It seemed that the Vega slate, according to Advent, up until that point did “not exhibit the optimal performance that the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor is capable of running with certain Flash website content” -- therefore, they pulled Flash Player 10.1 from the system and said that it'd be ready in the early part of 2011. Turns out that time is now, today!

Advent pull Flash Player 10.1 from Vega tablet until “early 2011″

Advent is pulling Flash Player 10.1 support from its Vega Android tablet, after it was discovered that the plugin had not passed Adobe's certification. According to the Advent statement [pdf link], Vega slates bought until now may "not exhibit the optimal performance that the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor is capable of running with certain Flash website content"; the company is working with Adobe on a correctly certified version of Flash Player 10.1, but that isn't expected to be ready until "the early part of 2011."

Advent Vega Review

Advent Vega Review

Low-cost Android tablets aren't unusual; good low-cost Android tablets are a different matter. Advent's Vega slate - on sale through DSG's PC World, Currys and Dixons in the UK - bucks the Android trend by carrying a low sticker price of £249 ($395) and decent hardware specs, including NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 processor. It's a combination that has seen DSG struggle to keep the Vega in stock for more than an hour at a time, but is this really the bargain Froyo slate we've been waiting for? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

And we got an Advent Vega tablet to look at! Hooray!
