Chinese Androids Getting Baidu Search Alternative


baiduThere is a ton of tension and lots of unanswered questions in the Google, China & Android issue. We’re not sure what this means in terms of the Motorola and Samsung phones that Google is reportedly withholding from release, but Motorola has just announced that they’re offering Chinese consumers the option to utilize Baidu as their search engine of choice instead of Google.

This is newsworthy only because of the Google vs. China spat. Put that aside and this doesn’t look awkward in any way, shape or form. Afterall, recent reports put Baidu’s market share at nearly 60% although Google has recently been gaining ground.

The question now is how and if Motorola’s decision to offer Baidu plays into the overall search censorship issue at hand. We’ll let you know as the story develops.
