    Mediocre for us. It's been a worthwhile effort, but given the potential audience size, we were expecting much better.

    Quite well. But the chances of finding the right deal or partner are minuscule. We were trying to break into the Chinese market for a long time and since 2004 we signed dozens of distribution deals for China, all of them resulting in virtually no revenues. Last year we decided to give it another shoot and we went through few dozen partners (evaluating, not actually signing with them) until we narrowed it down to few that actually delivered. So we are looking at 6 figures in terms of revenues and 10+ million installs/preloads.
    Unfortunately, I can't share any details on the partners and the deals - it simply cost us too much to get where we are in terms of China distribution.
