Baidu To Get Its Services Pre-Installed on Next Gen Mobiles [pcworld.com]
Chinese search engine Baidu dealt Google a blow on Monday as it announced that many of its popular services will be pre-installed on next-generation mobile phones from a local carrier.

Baidu services including its Internet search, free music download search, and message forum will all be pre-installed on 3G handsets from China Unicom, Baidu said Monday. Baidu will also provide search capabilities for mobile Internet Web sites run by the carrier, which plans to launch the iPhone in China this month.

Baidu has captured a big portion of the mobile market in China with this move. Does Google have a chance now?
