So I got this tablet given to me by my mother who is visiting from Europe as she bought herself here a nice Ipad Mini, I have factory reset the Arnova Tablet however I can not seem to install Google Play. I downloaded the latest version online and transferred the app to the tablet however it does not even open and just get a quick glitch. Anyone know what this issue could be? How else would I be able to put any apps on this machine? I would also like to have google chrome as I get a message with the current browser that "the browser is out of date" and cant seem to find an update button for example any firmware.

Anyone able to help?

looks like it's not google certified and that's why it doesn't ship with the play store. You'd have to look for a custom ROM to add it or side load .apk files manually if you can find them.
This may help but use at your own risk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCrOx7V2hWU

Hey thanks for your reply, I will have a look, I might reset the tablet again as there were pre-installed apps. It might be on there... :)

I doubt it.
I had the same issue when I bought a cheap & nasty Android.
