What version is loaded on it now? Look in Options >About. It should say 4.2.x.x. What are the numbers after 4.2?

That's the OS that it came with.

Desktop Manager software can be downloaded here

You can upgrade to the latest OS here

You can install applications either over-the-air (OTA) or with the use of the Desktop Manager. Desktop manager needs .alx/.cod files and OTA uses .jar/.jad files.
