Xinhua and China Mobile will jointly start a search engine. From Financial Times:
Xinhua, China’s official news agency, and China Mobile, China’s largest mobile telecoms operator, are setting up a mobile search company together, the two state groups said on Thursday.
The move comes amid upheaval in the Chinese online search market as other players attempt to grab market share following Google’s partial exit from the market this year in a dispute with the government over censorship.
