As you know Samsung Galaxy S comes with yahoo apps (mail, chat, etc). My First Android Phone was a G1 and I really love the google natives apps like gtalk, search widget, etc.. The problem is that these apps are not in the market and I dont know Where to find them.

I know That I could install another Rom that brings theses apps, but I really like How works my samsung with Eclair. I just need back my google apps.

Some help?

What happens if you try installing from Android Web Market?… You need to be logged in to the same Google account as the one you associate with your phone to use Web Market. – Lie Ryan Mar 17 '11 at 17:07
I had no idea the SGS came with Yahoo instead of Google apps in Nicaragua. That's crazy. – Matthew Read Mar 17 '11 at 17:09
@Lie Ryan I already did that but in when I want to install tell me that this item is not aviable for my operator. Probably because detects the country of my google account u_u – byroncorrales Mar 17 '11 at 17:16

Have you searched in the market using "Google" as the publisher?

Gmail / Maps / Search are available there.

Installing from Market is preferrable, but you probably can sideload them if you exhausted all other avenues.

Download the apk:

If you have adb, then you can install the apk using adb install.

If you don't have adb, then save those apks to the SD card and use a file manager (e.g. Astro, Estrongs, etc) to install them.

You need to enable non-Market installation: Settings > Applications > Unknown sources
