    I'm not sure what you can do about it, but I get the same error on my XP SP3 X32 desktop and my W7 SP1 X64 laptop. Apparently there really is something wrong with the website security certificate.

    Certificates are one of the weakest points for some of the builds of Android. There are so many reasons a Cert could fail, and Android does not make it easier to fix. As Spider states in this in his review, it fails on XP. In this instance, it is due to the CA (Certificate Authority) is issued by the DOD CA. The fix to this scenario is to get the DOD root CA from a trusted source. If you have success on your PC or Mac, you can export it from your CA store to a CER file and import it into your Tablet. Once you have it,you import it in setup using the Credential Storage section of Security in Setup. You must place this .cer in the Root of your SD card or similar storage. It does not use a special folder.
    Another problem of Android is the CA store update process. It is only done automatically during OS updates. Otherwise, you have to do it yourself.
