    Use mine mainly for browsing the net.

    Very few games are made directly for Android tablets, that I've found anyway - would be interested to hear if theres more out now though.

    I got one of these for my boy and I'm sort of regretting it now, I thought there would be loads of cool games and stuff but it all feels a bit stale still, I didn't realise either that it can't play the driving games as it only has a 4 way motion sensor or something, he uses it just not nearly as much as I thought he would

    All the driving games work fine once the acceleromter is set up properly in the Corvus ROM.

    Most of the Tegra specific games work really well but most of the best stuff is paid for.

    Most of the roms for the Vega are based around phone roms. With these you won't be able to get tablet apps.

    I'm well happy with my Vega. It is 160 tax free at the airport, absolute bargain. I am still running the modaco r8 rom too. I use it mainly for browsing and couldn't live without flash.

    What sort of price you thinking of mate, I got one for sell at the mo.

    Its currently running a version of Vegacomb, and have only had it for a month but just not had the time to play with it.

    Comes with a case and I can chuck in a nice new 16GB micro SD card if the price is right

    let me know your delivered price with and without the extras. I'm trying to free up some funds (in my bst thread) so if there's anything there that takes your fancy we can chuck that in as part payment ?

    Money's tight at the moment so was only looking for a basic unit with no case really, but always open to offers

    Well lets say, 160 and I will chuck the case and Royal Mail Special Delivery in as well or 170 with the new SD card.

    Will get some photos up either today or tomorrow and place them in my thread.

    will do, funds may be an issue but I'm working on it and I'd be surprised if I don't own one by the end of the month at the latest.

    Ipad will definitely kick it's arse. Although I am very happy with my advent Vega, I couldn't live without flash.
