    If an Android 2.2 Tablet doesnt have the Android market Place then is there any simple method to install various third party android .apk files directly from the webpage to the Internet Tablet

    If you are able to mount it as Usb, copy the file, then open it with file explorer and it should install. If you cant do that, copy it to your sd or microsd and same process.

    you may get a warning about non-market apps. Allow these and you should be fine.

    My problem is that google android market place is not installed. So there is no way to install app installer or a File manager like Astro. Now what to do in this case. If I find an .apk file can it be installed without any file manager directly from the internet

    looks like your only route is to go thru the android debugger which is located in your "settings". so just install the astro file manager and you won't have to do this anymore

    Kindly explain step by step what do with android debugger in settings. I mean to say do I have to turn it "on" and then click on the apk file link on a website and will it install directly this way. I am sorry if I sound stupid but since I am a newbie to android tablets, I would highly appreciate if you explain to me step by step. Thanks a lot
