I'm Kai from an Android studio in Beijing.
I own a few different Android devices: the Xiaomi, Galaxy Nexus, and the Nexus 7. I also put in a pre-order for the Google Glasses :)

If you have any questions about the Android market in China, I'm happy to answer!

Largely because of Google's troubled relationship with the government, the Play Store is only a small fraction of overall app downloads in China. Many phones running the Android OS in China are stripped of any traces of Google (including the Play Store) and pre-loaded with other Chinese apps instead.

There are over 50+ different Android app stores, none of which is a clear leader: it's a fragmented market, though consolidation is starting. Some of the largest are Gfan, Hiapk, and AppChina (see: http://paidcontent.org/2011/11/07/419-china-has-70-android-app-stores-but-that-could-soon-whittle-down-to-10/)

In China, our product aggregates from all of the different app stores: www.wandoujia.com With our intl version we want to explore the market for PIM tools and content downloads. Would love to hear what you think!

I have a tablet , 随花随E M-7C09 .
This device has been giving me a hard time , since it liked to reset itselves . Also It's very hard to find any compatible apps for it's version of android ( ver 2.2 ) in google play.
I tried to access it's vendor website , all that I found is that the site no longer exist . The domain is expired. This device was bought by a friend for me from China / HK . without packaging , manual , nor anything else.
Here's the Logo :


Could you please point me a direction to find help .
Thank You , Kai.
