The company, China's answer to Google, has agreed to buy out 91 Wireless, which develops apps for Android phones as well as running its own app store.

The deal marks an aggressive investment into mobile from Baidu, in what is now the world's largest smartphone market. The Nasdaq-listed company dominates web searches in China but is seen as needing to branch out into mobile to continue to grow, as users increasingly access the internet from smartphones.

The millions of Android smartphones in China are not connected to Google's Play Store, leaving other providers to plug the gap. More than 10bn apps have been downloaded from 91 Wireless's platforms, Baidu said in a statement today.
