This unit has been hotly tipped for the last few months, and the launch date has been eagerly awaited. Just noticed today that PC world are now starting to put stuff about it on the website, so it cant be long now. A date i found elsewhere on the net said Nov 14th, but cant confirm if thats right or not.
The price has been already confirmed by DSG (dixons group) and the unit has been reviewd at electricpighttp://www.electricpig.co.uk/2010/10/14/advent-vega-review-budget-tablet-first-impressions/
It looks to be the first decent spec tablet that has the ability to at least have some comparison with the Ipad at a reasonable cost. I know its not an ipad, and it wont have exactly the same functionality, but it is a good spec for the price.
