Is there a way to add the "standard" contacts app to an Android tablet that did not come with it installed?

My daughter has a new Android tablet that only has WiFi. It does not have some of the standard apps that my Android phone has installed, some of which I understand, for instance without a phone what use is a dialer? BUT. There is no Contacts app installed.
Gmail is installed, but there does not seem to be a way to enter a new contact or to edit the details of an existing contact. The tablet was bought so that she could email from it.
I know there are third party apps out there, but I'd really like to just install the stock Contacts app. I don't see it in the market though. We're working around it by opening her Gmail contacts on a desktop PC browser.
The "About Tablet" tab yields this info: Model Number T711, Android Version 4.0.3, and it apparently is an Rk29SDK whn it comes to system updates.
So, how does one install parts of the "standard" Android app suite?
