Advent’s Vega Android tablet is back in stock this morning, with retailer PC World showing the £249 slate up for home delivery. Those consumers that need an update or reminder will want to know that the device is built around the NVIDIA Tegra 2 SoC (system-on-chip), has support for multimedia, including Flash playback, and has an LCD (liquid crystal display) to put said feature set to use.
The screen has a native resolution of 1,024 x 600 pixels and a diagonal of 10.1 inches, which puts the exact measurements of the slate at 275 x 178 x 13.6 mm.Of course, for storage purposes, Advent put in some Flash chips, with a total capacity of 512MB, though one may add many more gigabytes via the microSD card slot.
Needless to say, the full range of connectivity and I/O options are present, the list being made up of, among other things, HDMI, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1.
HDMI port will let the slate stream video to auxiliary displays.
Advent has also confirmed that all pre-orders from the Vega’s last sales availability earlier in the week have been processed, so if you were lucky enough to punch in your credit card details in time you should have a present winging its way through the post soon.
