Default can I activate touchpad with some one elses account ?

does the touchpad have to be activated with a account that is specific to the touchpad or can some one let me borrow their account name and password, I just want to load android on the TP but my demo TP will not let me create an account. if its doable any one wanna try and let me borrow theirs ?

There's no need to (and no-one in their right mind would want to for security reasons). If you used someone's account, you'd have access to all their paid apps, could buy apps and read their email. They better be a close friend of yours.

You can activate with any Google account and can also create an account when you activate. You can also add multiple accounts to Play Store (via the menu in that app) to add another acct (like family member).

You can also create a Gmail account here: https://www.google.com/

Just click the "sign in" button in the upper right.

im in need of a account for a webos since I have a demo touchpad runnig webos and it does not let me create a new account thus I can not make it run android. I am sure some one may be willing to let me borrow a webos account since many people dont even use it.
