Android Tablet without MarketPlace

Just received a gTablet by ViewSonic powered by the Android OS of Christmas. Problem is that the WiFi device does not include the the Marketplace app. This particular product does include the www.handago.com android app and the www.viewsonic.com/gtablet/favoirte.htm site includes shortcuts to the Borders, Kobo, Wattpad, FBReader and Kindle apps.

 

Two questions, does the current nook app run on these devices, I suspect yes?

 

Second, how do I download, with or without a PC without the marketplace?

There is no direct download available for the NOOK for Android App.  Devices must have the Google Marketplace on them to access the App.

Re: Android Tablet without MarketPlace

Found an indirect way on on of the many Forums. Find the app on an Android phone and backup, then copy to the tablet using a tethered PC. Complicated, Works!

 

PS the Kindle app is perfectly happy to run on the gTablet. Alas I have already purchased nearly a hundred books with Nook.
