Advent Vega 10.1in Google Android tablet PC

Dixons Retail, the parent company of PC World and Currys, has jumped on the Android tablet bandwagon and unveiled the Advent Amico and the Advent Vega.

The £129.99 Advent Amico is a 7in touchscreen device while the 10.1in Advent Vega costs £249.99.

The Vega, which offers support for multi-touch, is powered by an nVidia Tegra 2 dual core 1GHz processor and runs Froyo, version 2.2 of the Google Android operating system.

Users will benefit from a 4GB memory card courtesy of a SD card that comes bundled with the devices, as well a Wi-Fi connectivity and a 1.3Mp web cam. The Advent Vega is just 14mm thick and according to Dixons Retails has a bettery life of 10 hours.

The Advent Amico runs Google Android 2.1, is 15mm thick and sports Wi-Fi connectivity and a webcam.

"While top of the range tablets may be all singing and dancing, the Advent Amico is a great, no frills, starter product. The Advent Vega meanwhile offers those who want more from their tablets a quality, performance product at a very affordable price," said Jeremy Fennell from Dixons Retail.

The Advent Amico costs £129.99 while the Advent Vega is priced at £249.99. Both tablets will be available from PC World  and Currys stores from November 1.
