Help needed with an MID tablet
ok...so bear with me I know nothing about it but I bought myself an android tablet for xmas, had and android phone and thought it would be fun to have a tablet. Just want to play games, email, facebook etc. I love to search and download apps for my phone and thought this would be the same.....apparently I bought a China version and have a different Android system than my phone. (I am in the US) I cannot find any of my favorite apps in the market, when I try to download some apps it says internet connection not working properly but I am connected to WIFI with excellent conectivity. I have been able to download some apps but not what I really want. Is there a way to change to operating system to the US Andriod system that I am used to using?

Have you tried looking for a software update function in the settings? I'm getting one of those tablets tomorrow. And I would like to put Android 2.3 in it. What is yours currently running? And what kind of computer system are you using? Have you hooked it up to your computer?
I also bought for christmas a tablet from china with a different android than the normal one. I am wondering if it is possible to watch rmvb files in these kind of tablet, because i already downloaded rock player base and nothing happened. Just another question, how to put office files(ppt, pdf,...) in these kind of tablets? When i bought it the seller told me that it had the Android 1.7 version, but i dont think so, because when i boot my tablet it appears 1.9something, and i think that this version doesnt exist from google android.
I would be very pleased if someone could help.
slgbaby: what is the exact manufacturer and model number from the device? If there's nothing there, check settings-> about device (or something similar)
There is literally nothing that tells me the manufacturer or model number in settings about device is has:
It's an android v1.6 device. You may want to see if you can find a copy of quick system info somewhere on the interweb-thingy..
Uhmm I have downloaded games such as angry birds, crazy kart, plants vs zombies for android MID and it works perfectly, you can't find those great apps in the app market ou can use the net and find websites giving free download good website is medIAfire.com.. hope that helped.
I have this exact device but the box is slightly different. Probably a different version. The app market sucks on it and I can't figure out a way to get the actual US Google app market on it. If you learn anything about this device please share with me.
I have a v similar device
The 'About device' shows
Model Number generic
Firmware Version Android2.2
Kernel version 2.6,29-00236-g4f8dbbb-dirty
Build number WMT2.1.2
I plan to look to root the device (not sure how yet) and then install the android market apk
