In order to use Google Play the OEM has to go through Google and most of the smaller ones don't. They a better cut of profits from their third party app stores. Getting Google Play on a non-support device is a pain in the ass and involves a massive effort and rarely works. The Google apps need their own framework to work properly

You can sideload a other marketplaces without rooting and give them a try

The Amazon app store is a huge alternative to Google Play

You also have the option of Getjar which has a smaller selection then Amazon but it is alright

SlideME is another alternative to AppsLib but it doesn't have much to offer except some video game emulators
