Today's tablet announcement of the day is the Advent Vega, which is already garnering some applause thanks to its lengthy and stacked spec sheet.

Powered by a Nvidia T20 Tegra 2 1GHz processor, the Advent Vega sports a 10-inch capacitive touch screen with a 1,024 x 600 resolution.

The real treat with this one is the longevity as a user can squeeze a maximum of approximately 16 hours of battery life out of a single charge when playing audio only. That means the screen has to be dimmed. But normal wear with 1080p video playback will bring that number down to 6.5 hours.

Here's a glance of what else is making everyone talk about the Android 2.2-based Vega tablet:

  • 512MB of RAM
  • 512MB of ROM
  • 802.11bg Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth v2.1 + EDR
  • 3G SIM card slot
  • 4GB microSD card included
  • 1.3-megapixel webcam
  • Microphone
  • Dual Li-Polymer batteries
  • Dimensions: 10.8-x 7- x 0.5-inches
  • Weight: Approximately 1.5 pounds

The Advent Vega will launch in the United Kingdom on October 18 for £249 ($394). Until then, you can see the Vega tablet in action in the demo video below:
