Having gone up for sale just a couple of hours ago, Advent’s Vega Android tablet has seemingly already sold out. UK retailer PC World is now saying that “Due to unprecedented demand we have sold out and will be back in stock next week.”

We’re checking with PC World for more details – and hopefully an idea of how many units they had on hand in the first place – but don’t let anybody tell you there isn’t a hunger for low-cost Android slates.

[Thanks sgruffalo!]

Update: PC World has given us the following statement:

“The first shipment of Advent Vega tablets was made available at the start of business today on the Currys and PC World websites, and sold out nearly as quickly as ‘Take That’ tickets. We are expecting more stock and bigger shipments over the coming days which we will be rolling out as quickly as possible to all our stores in time for the busiest Christmas shopping weekends in December, starting with Currys and PC World megastores at the end of next week.”
