IMPORTANT: The Dual-Screen Tablet P (SGPT211USS) is currently only available for sale in the United States.

This error is caused by a mismatch in the time or time zone the Reader application or Reader Store expects to see and the actual time and time zone setting on the tablet. For instance, if you have the time set as 4:00PM but have not selected a time zone, since Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is the default, the time set for the tablet will be detected as 4:00PM GMT when in actuality it is 4:00PM Eastern Standard time. This will be detected as a mismatch and display the error. Image

To resolve the issue, follow this procedure to make sure the time and time zone settings are correct.

    NOTES:

    • If you are connected to a Wi-Fi network , you can also tap to select Automatic date & time to have the displayed time and date automatically set and checked ever time the tablet is connected to the network. Image

You should now be able to access the Reader application or the Reader Store without issue.
