So I clicked on the Android Market icon on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 only to see Client is out of date, an update will download shortly.
I clicked OK and waited for this magic update. Unfortunately, nothing happened. So I went and consulted the almighty Google, only to find outdated posts and similar issues from back in 2010.
I did confirm there was a recent Android Market update on January 25th 2012. I found out that my tablet that was brand new in November of 2011 shipped with version 1.0.28!!
I emailed Google and have yet to get a response. I started searching for Android Market APK and found tons of links to MultiUpload.com. Unfortunately, they have been shut down due to the wonderful new version of Internet Censorship.
Good news though; I did find a semi-recent version of the APK here:
This is not the newest version of the Android Market. The most recent version is 3.4.4. I downloaded the above version, and it updated itself after that.
I did hunt down another link that is for version 3.4.4, and it is not hosted by MultiUpload.com or BtJunkie.com. You can download it here:
