I just talked to Augen support and it TURNS OUT the new patch files will be released on AUG 20. Apparently the google marketplace License is creating a delay. So no new update this week. :mad:

[quote name='Dick Whitman;35497]I'd rather have a real market on the 20th[/QUOTE] For that to happen' date=' Google will need to be changing their [URL=http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/03/android-devices-crave-googles-attention/']policies about the hardware requirements for Android Market[/URL]. Either that or Augen will be somehow adding a camera and accelerometer support, at the absolute minimum...(I'm not saying Google haven't changed that policy in the past 5 months, but if they have then it doesn't seem to have been mentioned anywhere yet.)

HP Samsung and Viewsonic are all building android tablets, so maybe there is some truth to the statement. HP for one is waiting for Android 3 which was designed with tablets in mind. If Augen is smart they'll pull this line(and offer us all full refunds) before shipping anymore unlicensed tablets. As is their "update" is probably a full image that's going to zap market, gmail, etc right off of our tablets.

[quote name='theman2;35775]If you think Augen has any leverage on google here' date=' you are mistaken.[/QUOTE']nope, but they're attempting to force Google to consider tablet, perhaps before they were ready to do so...

They have some leverage. As the first thing on the market, they have a ability to shape the consumer's perception of an android tablet. Without a working market or google apps, the consumer may think less of android and its tablets. Depending on how far these tablets spread into the technically impaired public. Not much but it's something.I believe in the little augen that could.

Augen would have to join the open handset alliance to gain access to the google apps. Oha already has big name computer people in it (asus for example) and google could not give a damn less about augen.Google sent a cease and dissist to cyanogen for using the apps in the builds, and they were not charging, you honestly think google is just going to let augen get away with selling illegal copies of their software? Augen is quiet and scared and frankly I think they are about to go bankrupt over this. They got rushed by kmart, were disperate to be a player in this market, and fucked themselves over, and frankly did the same to people who bought this falsely advertised item. I returned both of mine, and sorry the false advertising was not from kmart, it was augen. Augen printed the box, augen said things were their(including market) on that box, augen lied. Augen will likely pay the price for their lies, and I imagine they will not be a solvant company much longer.Btw, the tablet is not the only device they "forgot" to take google apps off of, the netbook with android that they sold through kmart was the same way.

Both places it says download "hundreds" of apps from the Android Market. The official Android Market has 70,000 apps. AndApp Android Market and others have hundreds of apps. It doesnt make mention of Google Maps, or GMAIL anywhere. It says you can Email, Surf Web, share photos, and download hundreds of apps. You can do all of those without any GOOGLE product on the device. Also the manual makes no mention of the Market, and tells you how to install apps using the included FILE EXPLORER. Just saying..CPG
