Dixons offers own-brand Android tablet

After the £180 Next tablet got a mauling last week by the BBC, we're not sure what to expect from the new budget Android tablet from the Dixons Group.

Stores within that group, most notably PC World and Currys, will sell the device, which will be branded as the Advent Amico. £130 will secure you one, a full £50 cheaper than the Next offering. It's a 7-inch tablet running Android 2.1 and with Wi-Fi connectivity. A little too cheap? Don't worry, there's a premium model too.

That goes by the name of the Advent Vega, a 10-inch tablet that steps things up to Android 2.2 for the operating system, throwing in Wi-Fi, a 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 4GB of storage and a 1.3-megapixel webcam. That goes for almost twice the price at £250, but still considerably cheaper than shelling out for an iPad to be fair.

You can secure both the Advent Amico and Vega from the stores from November onwards. Yes, just in time for the Christmas rush.
