Has anybody seen the Advent Vega Dock being sold outside the UK? I've only seen PC World and Dixons having the dock in stock and they don't ship it to where I live...

Advent Vega is UK model. Rest of the Europe call it Mobii Point of View Tegra 10". They are the same inside, only logo on the back is different.

Pov is heavier (730g) a bit,and no bluetooth, so not just label is different

but i would guess that the dock is the same to both tablets, i got one and it has 3 USB 1 HDMI 1 headphones (stereoplug) and a powerplug.

and it looks like this



So buying a dockingstation for a PoV Mobii 10 would work just as well as trying to get one from the U.K.

Good to know, guess i have to trawl all stores nearby to check if we have any on shelves .. there is none on the websites and the currys store i was in the other day did a check for the dock in stock then checked pcworld stock levels and told me there was none... Given your result its worth a look i think... Failing that i may take a chance on one for the Pov Mobii 10 dock shipped from europe and see if that works..

I have been trying to get a dock for the vega for weeks but PC World etc were of no help so after a bit of investigation I found that the viewsonic viewpad 10s dock was the same as the vega, There are several company's on the net selling them. I got mine from cbccomputers.com for only £20.10 and they do free p&p for orders over £10
