Hope some of you wizards can help me,
I have a duet which I love - sorted with this.
I have recently bought a cheap chines 7" tablet (android 2.1) and am trying to obtain and install the logitech app.
Problem is I can't find a way to download it to my pc (to copy to mini flash card and install off that),
I can get to the Android Market on the tablet after fighting the crappy on-screen keyboarD - BUT IT WON'T ALLOW ME TO DOWNLOAD THE APP AS IT SAYS THERE IS NO ACCOUNT ASSOCIATED WITH "THIS PHONE"
It isn't a phone of course but a tablet.
I have also tried to get a third party app (squeezeox commander, but have the same problem.
I have done some fairly extensive googling but so far no luck.
ANY help would be greatly appreciated
Best regards
Tony

What brand "cheap chinese tablet"? Tablets aren't well supported in the Market and you will need to find a work-around so yours has access to the proper apps. I'm new to this Market junk myself and it's still confusing. I have an Archos tablet and I'd be SOL if there wasn't an Archos forum to turn to for help. For the Archos there are a couple tricks to get into the Google Market or Android Market, including an app in the Archos-supported "Appslib" that installs the Google market + some more/less standard useful apps. For reasons I don't understand Google doesn't like these work-arounds to access their apps.

I also find the "phone" device description irritating but I suppose that will change as more tablets are bought and more are rooted to enable use with unsupported software.
