SOLVED! - Android Tablet Cannot Connect Server / Cannot Create Account

Fail to create a new Android Market account using your Android tablet, or fail to login to Android Market nor Gmail. No matter using WIFI or wired network, keep prompt message that cannot establish a secure connection with the Market - like this "...cannot establish a secure connection to the server"

The chance is that your system date time is incorrect, that caused a secure connection cannot be established.
This solved the problem:
  • Go to "Settings"
  • Select "Date and Time"
  • Uncheck "Automatic"
  • Select "Set date", set the current date correctly
  • Select "Set time", set the current time correctly

Now, you are ready to create an Android Market account.
