Baidu has been selected by China Unicom to provide wireless search for its 3G mobile subscribers. Baidu’s search will be embedded in China Unicom’s 3G phone modules.
”We are very excited to join hands with China Unicom today following our partnership agreement with China Telecom in May,” said Xuyang Ren, Baidu’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development.
China Unicom 3G subscribers will be able to access a variety of Baidu search features including web search, Baidu Knows, Baidu Post Bar, image search, news search, and MP3 search. Baidu will also provide search for China Unicom’s wireless Internet sites.
”As the leader in Chinese language search, we hope that Baidu’s cooperation with major telecom providers in China will accelerate the development of 3G services and allow us to provide the rapidly growing population of mobile search users better access to information,” concluded Ren.
