Apk source when no Android Market available ?

Since not every tablet has Android Market access, where do you get your apks from ?

Scenario 1: For example from here: http://m.box.net/view_shared/93t5vc7np8
Scenario 2: If someone has installed the app, he can do a backup. This in the backup generated .apk file can be used for re-installation.
You need some kind of file manager on your Android unit though.
Scenario 3: There are separate market apps. If you find a way to install one of these, you have your market in place.

Nothing specific apart from the various reader apks (kindle, barnes, kobo, aldiko and so on) which I really would like to be able to compare, some different browsers maybe if it is possible to use them, email apks. The usual thing, nothing too specific really. Still need the android device anyway, but sources might be useful for other Mobileread members.

Hi mgmueller !

How do you do a backup, in order to find the .apk files ?
I want to install Kobo Books Reader in the Android emulator on my PC (I want to check my epubs without to plug/synchronise my phone).

For example "App Control" from Android market.
Reader apps can be downloaded from Dulin's books and other sources as well.

nook app and others easily can be downloaded from the regular market with a simple trick:
a.) You have to use VPN on your Android unit.
b.) You (at least I have to) have to take out your SIM as well.
Then you suddenly find the nook app in the market. #§"/($"$()§"? regional restrictions.

How'd you get access to the Android Market? Is it the official Android Market?
