The Advent Vega was released to a storm of good reviews (including one from us here at Electricpig). It was a cheap, basic Android tablet that worked. Then it all went a bit wonky as the Flash plugin turned out not to be properly certified by Adobe, and so Advent had to yank the Vega’s Flash skills from then on – a pity, since it worked just fine in our testing.

You’ve been playing hard to get on online stores, and come out of nowhere, winding up as one of the most anticipated gadgets of 2010 in the UK.
