Advent Vega Internet Tablet - half the price and not half bad!

19 Jan 2011


Like with all technology, you need to think about what your needs are before you buy. Spending over £2.5k for a top spec Sony Vaio just to watch Big Fat Gypsy Weddings reruns on demand is probably excessive.

So if a netbook or internet tablet is on your radar, the Advent Vega should be near the top of your list.

Exclusive to the Dixons Group, the Advent Vega Internet Tablet ticks all the boxes on our list. It is good-looking, surprisingly lightweight and has a 10.1" capacitive touchscreen that displays high definition video in vivid colour.

The Android operating system is very user-friendly with social networking icons in their rightful prominent place. The tablet has great connectivity options as well as built in microphone and webcam. In terms of functionality, it has everything we need from a tablet - thousands of apps to choose from, smooth web browsing, social networking at a touch, superb audio and video media playing and a full day's worth of battery life. Best of all, this incredible source of entertainment has a price tag of nearly half that of the iPad, just £250.

I won't go into more technical info, but this unveiling of the Advent Vega on YouTube will reveal all you need to know and more. There are also demo's of iPlayer, Angry Bird and more on the official Advent Vega YouTube Channel.

All this AND it's helping save the planet by being part of the revolution that's forcing paper publications to switch to digital. Click here to find out more about newspaper apps and how tablets are helping to put an end to the chronic human conditions of boredom and loneliness…
