This is potentially a huge move for Amazon because inexpensive Android handsets are blowing up in China and the State media generally distrusts/dislikes Google and its Play Store (which only currently ‘sells’ free content). Lots of opportunities exist – it will be interesting to see if Amazon can capitalize over other local app stores.

An in case you were wondering it is only a matter of time before Kindle Fire makes its way to China (where it is built).
