Just bought a cheap MID 7" Android 2.2 tablet. Tried opening the icon on the desktop that says Install Apps and all I got was a page with a heading of AppInstaller and then /mnt/sdcard. When I tried to put in the URL for the Android Market, it didn't work. When I used the browser to go to the Market page and install an app, I get the message that there's no Android devices associated with this device. Any ideas?
This Android Police post has a link to the current Market version (note it's the standard Market, not the Tablet version which only works on Honeycomb). If you download it from your device you should be able to use your AppInstaller to install it from
As an alternative, you can get apps from 1Mobile Market instead:
- Download the apk from CNET to your PC.
- When it asks you if you want to open or save, save it, and remember where it's saved.
- Then connect your tablet to your PC/laptop via USB
- Go to where you have saved the file and right click it, then send to your Android.
On your android you will find a new icon called '1MobileMarket'. Use this to download apps instead of Google Play.
