    I've read a lot of differen threads now on how to get more out of this ereader/tablet.

    I bought one for my thirteen year old so she could read books, check her email and maybe play some simple games from the Android/Google market.

    I'm not interested in rooting and playing with all sorts of other features. I just want to add Googleplay.

    What's the easiest way to do this? And please provide links to the actual download files. I have downloaded the White file, but while there was mention of a black update, I haven't been able to find it.

    I don't remember installing Google Play, maybe you'll be promted to install it when you access google play - http://play.google.com/ - from your phone, then you'll just have to press OK, Yes; Install or whatever it is...

    Noep- visiting play.google.com didn't work. I was able to browse apps, but the button to install wouldn't work.

    You don't have the Play market on your tablet?

    If you don't then you will want to find a recent .apk of Play. Google for it. Make sure that "unknown sources" is checked in Settings so you can side-load the app. Once it is loaded, it will update itself from Google.

    Nope, the tablet came with a B&N market of sorts, but not Google Play. This is my 13 year old's tablet and she's fussing quite a bit she can't play the same games on it I have on my Toshiba tablet.

    I'll give this a try tonight- thank you very much!
