Looks like a good competitor to nexus 7, has a faster Tegra 4 processor

Quick specs:

• 7inch HD LCD IPS display 1280 x 800 resolution (215 PPI – still quite decent)
• Android 4.2.2 (Hopefullycustom rom if Advent don't update it to KitKat
• Nvidia Tegra 4 (quad-core Cortex A15 CPU with 72-core Geforce GPU
• 1GB ram
• WiFi 802.11 b, g, n (2.4, 5 GHz)
• 5MP rear camera and front 2MP camera for video calling.
• Micro USB, HDMI and Bluetooth 4.0
• 16 GB and micro sd card slot
• Nvidia's DirectStylus technology
• Upto 10 hours battery life

Nvidia's DirectStylus, which promises to be very responsive with broader stroke control, which should appeal to doodlers.
The DirectStylus technology utilises one of the Tegra 4's cores and allows up to 300 scans per second – which is five times the normal rate, resulting in finer, more accurate tracking. Your stick men will never look better.

Quick article from CNET UK;
Ready for some fightin' words? The new Advent Vega Note 7, powered by the might of a Tegra 4 processor, claims to be "the world's fastest 7-inch Android tablet" -- and it costs just £180.

The Vega Note 7 claims dizzying speed thanks to the Nvidia Tegra 4 processor contained within. Inside the tablet is a 72-core Geforce GPU and quad-core Cortex A15 CPU, with a fifth core thrown in to take care of basic tasks without bothering the rest of the cores, saving on battery life.

The 7-inch screen has a 1,280x800 resolution touchscreen, which sadly falls short of high definition. It also has a 5-megapixel camera, and boasts a battery life of 10 hours of HD video playback.

Like the Samsung Galaxy Note with which the Vega Tegra steals shares its name, the Advent tablet comes with a stylus. The Directstylus pen works with one of the Tegra chip's cores, which Advent reckons makes it faster and more responsive.

The Advent tablet is based on the Nvidia Tegra Note, a tablet made by Nvidia itself to show off the power of the Tegra 4 processor. The chip is so fast it has its own app store for apps and games that take advantage of the power on offer to run super-fast with great graphics.

The Advent has a stylus compatibility like the Galaxy note series, micro HDMI port, faster Nvidia Tegra 4 processor. Nexus 7 got more double ram, latest update. Depends on what your using the tablet for, some people will prefer Advent over the Nexus because of the Stylus, HMDI out and Tegra 4. Hopefully with developer support KitKat will be available on this.

If this was £30 cheaper, I'd be more interested. As it is, the Hudl and the Sero Pro are top of my list of what I'd like in my Christmas stocking...

And it has the perfect speaker positions. If the speakers are actually any good and the cameras are decent enough I think this could very well be my next tablet (even though I wasn't even looking to change). The product description on the Currys website indicates that it does have an MicroSD slot. It doesn't appear to have any glaring weakness that I can see... nice.

Your right, I changed it in the description. Thanks

I was just about to post this too!

I's sure everyone knows but this is a reference design from nvidia, advent have very little to do with these at all (a plus for me) so it should actually be a pretty solid tablet!

Also much cheaper than the nvidia shield which uses same processor!

Hot from me

I think they have missed a trick with that screen resolution, almost there but just fell at the finish line - should have charged £20 more with full hd.

think a little higher res screen plus more ram (1.5 gb or 2gb) would have future proofed this device..
