Advent Vega Android Tablet – either going to be great or terrible


If the Advent Vega lives up to the specs  below, it’ll be the first low cost 10-Inch capacitive touchscreen Android tablet that isn’t junk.  Due to be released by Dixons group on 18th October for £250, it’s running the latest Android 2.2 and houses a 1Ghz Tegra chipset, so on paper at least it looks to be promising.  Of course, this will all come down to execution and if there’s no Android Market, no deal.

    I got one and it is great… few bugs though…

    over-sensitive touch-screen, accelerometer does not work well with tilt games. Fixes are available though off, but requires playing around a fair bit. So not ideal if you are not computer literate.

    • Yeah;I’ve got one too now.Bargain for 250. Modaco update is mandatory though. Only an iPad alternative if you’re willing to modify it.
