DroidXplorer big in China?

According to an email DroidXplorer will be preinstalled on devices, and be featured on a set of app stores. For free.

I recently had an email drop down in my email account that I use for my Android projects. According to the sender I was offered to have my app preinstalled on devices in China, and have the app marketed. Free of charge.

Normally, I tend to think that "free offers" by email smells a bit fishy, but after browsing their sites and investigating some I decided to give it a go.

I replied with the required info and sent them the app, and now it's just to wait a while I guess. Let's see if this will generate any revenue from my display ads, or increase the rate of in-app purchases made from the app. It will sure be interesting to see, but I don't really count on anything yet.

Wht was quite different from other Asian app stores was that these guys didn't care if the app had links to the Google Play store (either through IAP or Ad Networks such as admob), which is often the case with Asian app stores.

I'll keep you updated.

Below is the email, with the company name and site names blanked out.
