Google has had a troubled relationship with China, where many of its services are blocked. As a result, local Android users currently get their apps from Baidu, Tencent and others. This is in stark contrast to Apple, which operates its own store in the country and is seeing app revenues grow as more locals purchase iPhones and iPads. Perhaps it's not surprising, then, that The Information reports the search giant is looking to launch its Play Store there soon. Gaining access to the country's many Android users could be a boon to Google's finances, but it'll need permission from the government to open up for business. Allowing Chinese developers to profit from it certainly won't hurt its chances.
