Amazon is the First Western Company to Sell Android Applications in China

Amazon is the first Western technology firm to sell Android applications in China. Google, which makes the Android OS, offers only free mobile apps in China. In many cases, locally developed commercial Android applications contain malware or have been pirated. Amazon pledges that it will test its Android apps for security problems and will work with local developers on developing new content. By offering paid applications, analysts contend, Amazon will be able to increase consumer interest and smoothly launch the sale of its devices, including Kindle e-readers  in China, the world’s largest mobile-phone market.
