i have bought a tablet tlast week, a lenco 1012, with is a pretty neat deveice for it's price. it has android 4.0, and a 10" screen, but it lacks one important thing, google play store. is there any way i can get this on my tablet? i buy alot of apps, so i would also like to use them on my tablet.

i have tried installing the apk's i found on this site, play store seems to be working after installing, but i get an error, that the app stopped working, and then it closes the app

i get an error: unfortunaly, google play store has stopped, i only have the option ok. when i press it the play app is killed.

if i use the recent apps button, i can switch to settings, and back to the store, and i can see the store is working, it loaded, but i cannot use it, becouse of the error, witch will kill the app

also, if i now login to the webinterface of play store i see my tablet as an option to install apps on :
Unkown - TAB1012,

i i choose the tablet, the error message appears on the screen on the tablet, so play store seems to be operational, but keeps getting blocked or something....

Same problem here. Bought the Tab-1012 yesterday.

The standard appcenter (worthless) is directing me to google play store once installed. The playstore shuts down immediately.

Unhappy lenco tab-9701
I also bought a lenco tab-9701 with android 4.0 ics. I have a problem with the sound speaker which at maximum level is not loud at all. I will return it to be fixed. The other issue i have is that it came with an app market which is not the google one. It is very poor and does not have the famous apps like whatsapp, angry birds ... I was able to find an apk file of latest google play store version. It started and i thought the problem was solved but after a while it keps failing each time i was starting it. I get the message that the application has stopped. I posted a message to lenco support and i hope to have an answer soon. As a plan b, i was able to find some packages as apk file searching google and you can install them with android file manager, just execute it. I was able to install angry birds and synology clients like ds photo and ds audio, as well as a screenshot utility. I hope that someone will have an answer and will post it on this forum. I knew the tab was cheap (199) but i was expecting at least to have the standard tools with android 4.0. This is very frustrating to buy a tablet for which the vendor LENCO does not tell you that google play store is not included. It is not mentioned anywhere on the documentation neither the product description ! To be continued.
