    Viewpad 10 Duel Boot
    Hi

    I recieved my Viewpad 10 just a few hours ago, The machine is very quick in both Windows 7 and Android 1.6. I jumped into the Android OS and went to the apps market. I soon realised that No App i attempted to work with would install. This left me pondering what I am doing wrong. One of the common error's i am recieving is the system stating I can't install the app on this "Phone". The Viewpad 10 is not a phone at all, so this left me with lots of questions.

    I am hoping some experienced tablet users can provide me with insight, and pointers on how to utilize the andriod OS on this tablet.

    Also i understand that Android OS 2.2 has many more capabilities, would it be possible to Upgrade my current 1.6 OS?

    Thanks in advance!:cool:

    I do not have viewsonic 10 but from all the research i have done and forums i have been to there was only one post i saw on some forum by a person who installed unofficial 2.2 update from Viewsonic (dont know the link) and stated that back key and wifi doesnot work correctly after the update.
    All versions of android 2.2 and lower are meant for phones by google only honeycomb (android 3.0) is designed for tablets.
    Maybe some one else here can help you with the issues with apps not installing from market as i indicated earlier im not a viewsonic 10 tablet owner.

    I guess this leads me to the question of, Can the Viewpad 10 Run Android 3.0 (honeycomb)? I am very very new to this market! I did what I thought was good research, I obviously fell short.

    There is no official newer release but there are nightly releases. Be careful and patient with the nightlies because there are continuous bug fixes and new bugs introduced

    Hello there to everyone
    Hoping some of you could help me.

    More details about this would be great. I haven't had any luck trying to get a full version of Android on my Viewpad10. I'm currently struggling through the GAPPS with full market thread, but a full android 2.2 would be even better.
