Known as side loading: Please make sure in settings>applications Allow Unknown Sources box is checked. Drop desired apk file onto root of sd card (that is, not in a folder) use a file browsing app to navigate to the apk (I use Astro File Manager, or Root Explorer if your rooted) and select the apk file. It will give you an option to install the package.
I use a Free windows application to manage all my ebooks called Calibre Library. Sort of like iTunes for books. It is very powerful and can convert ebooks to many formats and edit metadata. For example I use it to convert ebooks to .mobi format then drop them in the kindle folder of my android tablet. The kindle app reads them just fine. However the ebooks themselves are still on my computer and backed up to another hard drive safe and sound. Hope this helps.

After you have downloaded an android app... how do you get it in your phone? (new to the world of android)[/quote]
Princess, make sure in settings>applications the box for Allow Unknown Sources is check. Then plug in your phone to the computer and make sure mount storage is allowed. Drag and drop the apk file to the root of the sd card (that is, not in a folder). Use a file exploring app like Astro File manager to navigate to the apk on your phone. When you press the apk file it should give you an option to install it.
This version of Windows is amazing. It looks great, comes with a lot of very legit software, and runs as expected. If you can follow instructions you will have no problems with this. Thanks a ton uploader, this is great work.
You should head over to http://www.xda-developers.com/ you'll get what your looking for there. If it's possible. Lack of hardware drivers makes booting android on other devices difficult, they have to be made from scratch. that is being done currently with the HP Touchpad.
