I will probably write a fuller review later, but for this post I just want to point out a very useful firmware update.

One of the problems with the standard firmware is that it does not include access to the official Android Market from Google.

You can download it here: Be Book Live Android Market Firmware Update That download includes the following instructions, which are very simple — To get the Android app market on your Be Book Live: * Unzip the file. After you reboot the tablet, it will automatically update the firmware. You’ll see four green bars appear, which is an indication that the update is working.

* Put all files on a fat32 formatted micro SD card. * This means: there should be 1 folder in the root of the SD card, all other files should be in that folder. After it’s finished you’ll have full access to the Android Market on your Be Book Live.

The Be Book Live is, overall, a good entry into the tablet market, and more affordable than most others.I noticed this right away when I first started using it.There is now a firmware upgrade available for the Be Book Live that updates the operating system to include the Android Market. The folder structure on your SD card should look like the image to the left.Other Android tablets can require a lot of complicated work for this type of update, but this process was very easy.It will be simple even for someone who is not experienced with this type of update.
