I expected it to be slow for the price, but I still expected it to function.
Like the OP I tried installing both Froyo Market and GMAIL APK files. both installed ok but neither will launch. The screen flashes white and then nothing.
Weird; my first attempt at this Tablet I got ZERO errors until I decided to try and get a new ROM on it. There are plenty other App Markets out there I recommend you trying, such as the Amazon App Market, just google it.
I'm still waiting for my replacement model, should be here soon thankfully and I'll toy around with this one (but I refuse to try and get a new ROM on it, not worth bricking it again!)
I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with yours compared to the one I had, like I said, I experienced no issues, it wasn't the fastest tablet around but for me, it wasn't slow.
