POV’s Mobii TEGRA Froyo tablet looks surprisingly familiar

Advent’s Vega tablet made a few headlines today after the 10-inch Android 2.2 slate went on sale and promptly sold out in two hours; now there’s another Tegra 2 based slate we’re curious about. Expansys is taking pre-orders for the POV Mobii TEGRA, a £285 tablet with WiFi b/g, HDMI and a 1.3-megapixel webcam, also running Froyo.

In fact, the Mobii TEGRA is surprisingly similar to the Advent Vega: both have 512MB of RAM, a microSD card slot and a USB Host port, along with a webcam. Looking at the few photos available on the POV (aka “Point Of View”) site, the ports and speakers look pretty similar to the Vega too, leading us to wonder whether this is the same ODM tablet with different brands slapped on.

Until the first Vega and first Mobii TEGRA units start arriving, however, there’s no way to know. Expansys doesn’t have an expected delivery date for the POV slate, and PC World doesn’t expect to get any more Vega models in until the end of next week at the earliest.
