So, can someone clarify if Paid apps show up? Has anyone gotten this working??
I rooted and go the market and I only see Free apps. But, some searches I am doing for free apps such as xscope brower or adobe flash come back with nothing. On my phone they come up in the app store. So, even free apps aren't appearing properly. I find it very odd that a search on my phone shows 21 hits only shows 7 on the tablet. Strange!
Not strange, but expected based on how Android Market checks to see if the device is compatible with the applications before presenting the list. Each device has a "finger print" defined in the build.prop.
This unique string is used by Android Market to determine if the application will run/displayed properly on the device. You phone's finger print is different than the one on the tablet and thus as Android Market has determined that only Honeycomb will properly display applications on a tablet you will receive less results.
Email explaining why Android Market doesn’t work: on the Flytouch (another infoTMIC 10" tablet).
User's have attempted to modify the build.prop to copy/clone certain phones in order to increase the results but in some cases have made the table non working.
Based on the comments on other sites supporting infoTMIC and other devices, PAID applications are not showing on their tablets either.
