    Have you checked for a new 'Play Store' link?

    Look in th app drawer. Some are saying the new icon is showing up there. Also go into manage apps and see whats there.

    For me my Arnova has not updated or done anything with google play.

    All apps you install always go into the app drawer The apps button on your launcher). Not all apps you install show up on your desktop launcher screens.

    If you are on my rooted ROM look in /system/app
    The Market is called Vending.apk
    See if it is there. I cant believe Google Play would try to replace a system app which normally is a read only FS as they normally would not be able to. Instead they would install the new Market in /data/app. The new Market is called Vending2.apk
