Android has changed quite a bit since its original release in 2008 on the HTC Dream, but reminders of the platform's early days are still hanging around. For example, the Play Store listing for the Android Market — the precursor to the Play Store itself — is still live.
The page for the tablet version Android Market is still online (which used a different package name than the regular Market/Play Store), and the description seemingly hasn't been touched in nearly a decade. There are also no screenshots at all. Here's the full description:
Optimized for the tablet form-factor and Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), Android Market now makes it fast and easy to find awesome applications, games, and widgets for you.
