Proscan 10.1 inch Tablet (Model PLT1044) – Installing Google Play/Android Market  November 16, 2013 – 03:56 am

PLT1044_med As far as budget tablets go, I found the ProScan PLT1044 10.1″ tablet to be a nice option. Like many reviews have stated, you will not get the “latest and greatest” but it’s indeed a quality budget tablet. Does the job.

One of the most glaring items that are missing though is Google Play. While Android is open-source and there are other sites to download apps, Google Play seems to be one of the most essential items for any Android device. So, what do we do?

Manually install it, of course! However, Google Play isn’t available for this device, but the next-best thing, the Android Market, is. Installing Android Market was a straightforward process. I followed the following steps, courtesy of The Digital Reader:

Instructions on how to download the Android Market (not Google Play) to the Proscan Tablet

  1. Download this ZIP file to your computer.
  2. Open the Zip file to your computer and copy the contents to a folder on your Polaroid tablet via a USB cable. Then unplug your tablet.
  3. Once you’ve done that, open the file manager on your tablet and go to the folder where you put the files. Try to install the following apps in this order (double click on the files in order to run them):
  • OneTimeInitializer-signed.apk
  • SetupWizard.apk
  • vending-3.1.3-signed.apk

As a 4th step you might want to press the home button, select the checkmark which says “open always with”, and then select Launcher. This will guarantee that whenever you press the home button you will see the home screen and not be prompted with a menu.

I have Aldiko and the Google Apps installed and they work fine. Note that I don’t have the Google videos working on the tablet and I have no way to test it due to the simple fact that I don’t buy my videos via Google Play.

As for a proper review for the tablet, check out the YouTube clip below:
