The Vega from Advent was one of the first to have been built around an NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual ARM cortex processor. This along with the fact that it comes with a low initial price of just £199 or about $330 USD in the UK led it to instant stardom. No wonder it has taken just hours for the Vega tablets to fly off the shelves when it was first launched in the UK last November.
Also, here is one more aspect that has added to the Vega’s appeal all the more. For there is an unofficial update to the latest Android 3.2 for the Advent Vega is there for the taking. TabletRoms, who are the user community of this tablet, is offering this updated version of the Honeycomb. One of the biggest pluses of the update is the full native graphics acceleration that the Vega running Android 3.2 is capable of.
When shipped by Advent, the tablet came with Android 2.2 but thanks to the proactive approach of the user community who have been constantly improving things on the Vega. The present upgrade is the second in line as they had put out a hack for Android 3.0 in May.
However, all the advantages is not without its share of negatives as the Vega post the update will shut out both the camera and the Bluetooth.
So if you own a Vega tablet and think you can do without the camera or Bluetooth connectivity, the hack to Android 3.2 can well be worth it. The video below will let you have a better idea of it all.
