    New Advent Tablet

    Just read this on Engadget and thought it may be of interest.
    UK retailer offers 7-inch tablet with speedy Tegra 4 chip for 180UK retailer offers 7-inch tablet with speedy Tegra 4 chip for 180
    Hey, do you remember Advent? It turns out that the Dixons-owned brand has slapped its logo all over NVIDIA's Tegra Note reference design tablet in preparation for the holidays. Packing a 7-inch 1,280 x 800 display, the Advent Vega Tegra Note comes with a Tegra 4 paired with 1GB RAM, 16GB storage and Jelly Bean. 'Round back, you'll find a 5-megapixel primary camera and a 2-megapixel webcam up front, and there's micro-USB, micro-HDMI-out, Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11 b/g/n WiFi finishing off the spec list. As with the original, the slate comes with a stylus, which NVIDIA promises will be incredibly responsive thanks to its DirectStylus know-how. Pre-orders begin tomorrow, and the hardware will start hitting doorstops on November 15 for the rather reasonable sum of 180.

    for me whatever scanno picks as his next tablet seems the obvious choice, advent or not.

    It would be very interesting to know how does the Tegra4 perform on a tablet .. - According to some reviews, it is pretty fast... according to others, there are better SoCs out there...

    Hi
    Had a play with this in PC World (159). It is slim and looks a bit like the Asus Memo pad 7"
    with speaker grille across the top in portrait mode and all the inputs etc along the bottom incl power button. Very smooth scrolling but was not able to try any other functions.
