    You'll have to enable installation from "unknown sources" (Settings > Applications > Unknown sources). And without any additional software, make sure the .apk file is in your downloads folder, the open the browser and view the downloads folder (Menu > More > Downloads). Find the .apk file in the list and tap on it.

    Anything else you want to know? The meaning of life? The contents of the hangers at Area 51? Tomorrow's winning lottery number? The airspeed of a coconut laden swallow?
