    1) Are you using custom rom?
    - If yes, have you flash any gapps?

    2)Are you rooted?
    - If yes, download Play Store apk.
    - Use root explorer and paste at system/app and install. Ensure to change the permission rw-r--r--

    There should be...
    Have you take a look at your app drawer? or
    You launch setting. Go to Applications. Then All tab at top right.
    Navigate the lists...any indicated as Google Play Store?

    Look for Android Market if you cannot find Play Store. If the a500 is new and was not yet updated, it may still have Android Market installed. That app was renamed by Google in subsequent updates to Google Play Store.

    It may be useful if you can post the Android version information here. Go to Settings > About tablet.

    Post the Android version and Build number.

    The Market became the Play Store at roughly 3.2. So I would uninstall Play and go to Settings/ About Tablet/ Updates and manually look for an update.

    However, your build ends in demo. This may mean the unit is a display/ store demo. They're not supposed to sell those. The demo units do not have all the functionality that the regular units have. I know some of the displays at Costco and Best Buy didn't have the Market installed. You may not be able to install the Market/ Play if it's a demo.

    You could try 3 things:
    1 - take it back to the point of purchase and see if they'll exchange it.
    2 - Contact Acer, if it's registered and under warranty, they may be willing to do something.
    3 - Somewhere in the forum are the instructions for rooting and flashing a ROM. You could find the current 4.0.1 ROM and flash it so you continue to get updates from Acer.

    That's all I can think of, good luck.
