Sis years ago I saw a device that was just for watching media on the go. It was $400 for a 3" screen and 4GB of memory. I would say that we have come a long way in portable devices.
The Android Market does not come stock on this tablet. Other options would be to put the Amazon App Store on it or if you search YouTube you will find out how to install the Android Market. If you have any doubt about how awesome and amazing this tablet is you really need to check out this video because it is awesome and amazing!
