    If I edited the build.prop file lines:

    ro.build.description=
    ro.build.fingerprint=

    So that they matched my phone (ZTE Blade/Orange San Francisco), in theory I would be able to see all the apps my phone can and my tablet would appear in the list of phones that the app store can see as well?

    Or am I missing something obvious?

    I'll post this in apad.tv support as well.

    Some people have had some success with this well known trick but there are equally well known problems.

    Your tablet is not your phone, the hardware is different: Android version, screen size, screen density, RAM, sensors etc. so you will be offered apps that may not or will not work on your tablet. etc. etc. etc.

    I once lost the use of the on screen keyboard through changing those settings......
