£249 Android Tablet

Next week, Dixons Currys will start selling a £249 Android Tablet, the Advent Vega, according to Engadget.

The 10″ screen has a 1024 x 600 resolution which is very similar to the iPad’s 9.7″ 1024 x 768 screen. However unlike the iPad, the Vega comes with a 1.3 megapixel camera and a microSD slot. It also has 802.11g wifi, a 3G SIM card slot and 512MB RAM and ROM.

This is an unsubsidised price, so you might even be able to get it free in the future with a 3G contract.

It looks interesting.


Let’s just hope that it performs better than the Next tablet.

  1. I’m afraid that I agree with John. Better no camera at all than one that is of little use. I’d say the same about the ‘face time’ camera on iPhone 4 which I also believe to be 1.3mp but at least the main camera is decent.

    The other bits sound ok though. All of them missing from my iPad.
