According to the Niantic website, my tablet should have no problem running Pokémon GO, however it says my device isn't compatible in the android market! What gives? Anyone else having this issue?

I running :
Android 4.4.2
Qualcomm 2.3ghz cpu
2GB ram

It does actually run on android 4.4.2. Thats what I'm running, and is the latest OS this tab can run(officially copy). It wont allow it to download via the play store, but you can still acquire the APK. Which DOES work so long as you meet the other requirements. They just wont guarantee 100% comparability is all. Which is why I couldn't get it at the play store, I guess.

I downloaded the recent(at the time) APK and installed it. ALL updates work so far (0.33.0). SO, if you are like me, with this tablet, you will be just fine. At least until Niantic stops supporting Lollipop.
