More than likely Zenithink just shoved the Play Store on there. Sometimes the Shenzhen manufacturers don't even bother to test if things work properly or not. Basically because, 1) Google doesn't have anything to do with Android in China, 2) The manufacturer doesn't really care anyway.

It does, see above comments. That's why your Samsung more than likely has "with Google" written on it somewhere, and the Chinese Zenithink does not. It's got "Made in China", and not much else.
