Inspired by wikipedia’s List of digital distribution platforms for mobile devices, I’ve just created a similar but compact list for the Chinese native App Stores here. It’s far from complete and detailed, but it could give you an idea of how the success of Apple’s AppStore business has influenced the Chinese mobile market.
|Name||Established||Status||Organizations||Organization Gene||Available apps|
|Mobile Market||Aug.17,2009||Live||China Mobile||Carrier||1683|
|Surfing Space AppStore(天翼空间)||Sep.1,2009||Live||China Telecom||Carrier||392|
|Wo Store(沃商城)||Unknown||Internal Testing||China Unicom||Carrier||Unknown|
|Vogins AppStore||Unknown||Internal Testing||MediaTek||Mobile Phone Manufacturer||800+|
|Coolmart AppStore(Coolmart应用商店)||Unknown||Live||Coolpad||Mobile Phone Manufacturer||600+|
|Unknown||Oct.2009||Internal Testing||天语||Mobile Phone Manufacturer||Unknown|
I’ll keep it updated when related information is available later. BTW, all links in the table are directed to Chinese page, so be awared.
