    I bought the Advent Vega Tablet yesterday and so far its brill apart from it does not have Market on it so does anyone know when it will get it?

    I am shocked that they have bought a tablet out with no market as that is why most people go for a android cause of the market.

    Also when it does come out(i take it its 2.3?) how will my tablet get it? will it just update it or what?

    I know i could get market on it now by downloading things but i have looked at doing it but cant for the life of me work out how to do it as im not very good at things like that.

    any advice please.

    try here w**.filesonic.com/file/41491961/com.android.vending_2.2.6.apk choose slow download (free one) or google android vending apk
    appolgies to mods if I'm not allowed to show the above link if so delete the link.
    when you get the apk place it on sd card and use vega software update tool to install apk from card.

    I downloaded it but it would not let me open it as a message came up about some problem with uk isp and for me to buy the upgrade for filesonic.

    did you scroll down the page and choose slow download, then wait for the 30 second counter to finish, fill in the Captcha letters in the box & press submit and your download should begin. :)

    are you connected to the internet (wifi on) i know but had to ask,
    when you click the market icon what comes up (it should ask you to sign in with googlemail account or create one).

    you could try and install it again or try this click settings, then applications, manage applications, scroll down the list click market then click uninstall updates (ok everything that pops up) then return to the market icon (tablet window) click and see if it gives you the terms of aggrement and googlemail account which allows access to market.

    Ok did that but still no joy.

    When i went into manage applications market is there so click on it and all what was there is

    Uninstall,clear data,move to sd card and force stop but not uninstall updates.

    I think i will take it to a pc shop and get them to do it and pay for it.

    ok try the uninstall button, it should give one of the following: total uninstall of market (then you'll need to reinstall the markey apk) or the aggreement acception screen when you click on market icon.

    Have you tried going into Settings> Applications>Unknown Applications then tick the box to allow 3rd party software to run.
