Microsoft Close To A Big Search Deal With Baidu, Says Chinese Press [businessinsider.com]
It looks like Baidu is taking over the paid ads on Bing China, and Bing will provide the English language results for Baidu.
Bing is a tiny player in China's search market. Perhaps by striking a partnership with the biggest search engine there, it can gain some traction.

Might be good news for Bing if accomplished... that spreads the core search internationally and might help grow Bing...
