View Quest now selling 5″ and 8″ Android tablets in the UK

The UK based consumer electronics company View Quest have just started selling a pair of Android tablets. The Slate5 (800x480 screen resolution) and Slate8 (800x600 screen resolution) are based on the same 600MHz RockChip CPU, and they have Wifi, a resistive touchscreen, 2GB Flash, a microSD card slot, speakers, and they both run Android v1.5. You can find them at Bennetts, where the Slate5 starts at £149.99 and the Slate8 at £199.99.

Before you go, I want you to look at the speaker holes on the Slate 5 I show at the head of the the post. I beleive the bottom pair of holes are for the speaker. That's a rather distinctive look, wouldn't you say? I think the Slate8 is the same tablet as the one that cleared the FCC last week. The specs are identical.
