    Hi there -I'm new to this so please bear with me if I'm asking a dumb question.... I've got a new generic android tablet 7" MID 256 Mb and Android 2.2

    So I now want to load some apps, and android market doesn't seem to have options for facebook and yahoo messenger, which I particularly would like to use... I go to the Yahoo site and facebook and they have download android apps available, but when I try to load them they won't work unless I supply a mobile number for an Android phone (which I don't have being stuck with a windows mobile device)

    which apps should I downlaod and where can I get them

    would really appreciate some help here

    Cheers pbrauer - I always believe that a thank you costs nothing and that it's the height of rudeness not to say thanks, so .... much obliged for the help. I'll check out sideloading and apk's as soon as poss


    as we say over here - Cheers Mate !
