Setup Gmail with a new account and let it load up. Then to see function of Gmail, compose and send an email to another one of your email addresses, then and open that email and reply back to your tablet. Then, (in Gmail inbox) hit menu key then refresh. you will see the sync circle appear at top of screen. This should've happened already when sent/recieved email. This seems to associate the tablet with Google and sync. (You will not find accounts & sync in your settings screen.) You then go to the Market website on your computer, login using the same gmail account and send apps to the tablet. It will get pushed to the tablet and start in a few seconds. The app will install it automatically when finished. Some apps are not compatable and the market will not let you download them. They all seemed to be in the tablet section. Those all seem to need 3.0+. I havedownloaded many free apps and books this way. ( like 3 angry birds, youtube, maps, netflix, adobe flash 11 and lots of games for a six year old ) Note, If you open the market app on the tablet while downloading from market it will fail. If you get an error or fc in a google app, refresh again in Gmail app Also, ebuddy is a free app which can be your Gtalk client. This seems to be a cramfs (read-only) file system so no easy one click root. It could be possible with the right computer based reflash program.
