    Its a bullshit waste of money tablet. Why? Whats the use of android tablet when it does not allow you to access the android market, which is what the android phones are famous for?
    I insisit, they should in big bold writing mention this in the front cover that this tablet cannot access android market.
    FYI, I contacted their technical support and what they say is that hcl is not registered with google and hence android market is not accessible. WTF? Then Why do you not say this in you ads. Whats more irritating is that when you try to root this tablet, it has all kinds of restrictions in place, making sure you cannot enjoy the android part of this tablet in any ways. Bloody bastards…….Indian company is indian company………. I am shortly filing a case with my consumer forum regarding this………Thw worst thing is after you spend this 8000 bick,s you doneven get a phone, this piece of shit does not support cdma or gsm sim cards or bands……… what a ditch i am in now.

      Hi Andrey,Thanks for taking time to share your thoughts here.I can understand your frustration. However, because of one product blaming whole nation is not fair. There are many good products. Some might not perform upto your expectation. I request you to not to complain all Indian companies.
      Coming to tablet, i have mentioned that this tablet do not support Google play. There is no doubt that it is big let down of this tablet considering the price tag.

    I got google play successfully installed on HCL ME U1 tablet. YOu need to get the googleplay.apk or com.android.vending.apk and put it in /system/apps folder (very important)
    Since you wouldn't be able to get access to /system/apps folder , you need to connect your tablet to PC (install meconnect.. you can get it from HCL support ) using USB . Install Android-sdk on your laptop. Go to android-sdk/platform-tools and run
    adb devices
    This should list some entry showing that your tablet has been detectd

    Then run adb shell
    You will get a linux console shell

    copy the google play.apk file or com.android.vending.apk file to /system/apps folder
    and reboot
    When the tablet boots , it will show a message first time as "google updating .." . Soon you will get the play icon .

    This worked for me .. and should work for others ..

    The ram specifications given by the factory is 512mb, the ram installed in the tab is around 280mb. You can even check it
    SETTINGS->APPS->RUNNING
    free ram+used ram…..the total doesn't give 512mb
    what the hell….is this HCL faking ppl….??
    Even after complaining about it to the hcl……poor reply escaping the complaint.
    M complaining this to gadget guru….

    HCL me u1 is one of the worst tablet in market. It says it is android 4.0 but it doesnt supprt android.. no market drivers etc. The tablet is not worth buying. My java phone is better than it. I talked to customer are people asking whu i cant install app from HCL me Apps they said go to settings and accept install from UNKNOWN SOURCES. It means the so called HCL me APPs is also not licensed it just some junk. And yes forget using maps and gmail in tablet. I have given the tablet to my dog
