Firstly, I am new to Android tablet devices so bear with me and be as basic as you want with any advice.
I've bought a MiniGadget MG638Plus Android Tablet Computer - Android 2.3 for my daughter from Cheap Android Tablet Pc Cheapest Android Computer - Cheap Tablet
I have started looking for Apps in Google Play.
When i synched the device with my google account, google play has registered the device as "China Telecom Infotmic M7206".
This is preventing me installing many of the apps. For example, if i go the market app and search for bbc iplayer it is not there (i presume incompatible apps are filtered out). If i browse the google store on my windows pc via browser i find out the reason why. It finds the bbc iplayer app and when i press install it won't select the "China Telecom Infotmic M7206" and when i hover over it, it gives the reason "this item cannot be installed in your device's country".
I've bought the device from a UK website to use in the UK so i would expect to be able to use apps such as the BBC iPlayer. I cannot even download the Google Play Magazines app for downloading any magazine apps for the same reasons.
The website support are telling me the apps are simply not compatible with a budget tablet and that i shouldn't be accessing google play via a browser (and therefore not finding out about the message)
I would appreciate any advice to get GooglePlay to recognise that i am in the UK and not in China!
