This is largely because of the failure of Google, and in particular Apple, to pay much attention to local Chinese apps, although Google said late last year that expansion in China would be a priority for its mobile strategy in 2011.
Microsoft Windows Marketplace came between the two with just over 11%, and Sony Ericsson's PlayNow portal clocked up 7.4%.
Surprisingly, given the high market share of Samsung phones in China, its own store had only 4.2% share, though it has made limited efforts to develop an integrated apps experience outside of Korea and Europe as yet, while Motorola, another big handset presence, was just ahead on 4.7%.
China Unicom's Wostore had only 6.5% but it very new, while the also-rans, behind Samsung, were LG, RIM and Palm.
