Google gets the Baidu blues again after mapping losses [theregister.co.uk]

Google looks like being beaten again in China, as Baidu leaps ahead in the mobile mapping space.

The text ads giant was still second in the Quarterly Survey of China's Mobile Map Client Market, but only just, according to Beijing-based Analysys International.

Chinese player Autonavi was the market leader by a long way, with 25.7 per cent, and Google Maps came in second with 17.5 per cent, but had Baidu breathing down its neck in third with a 17.3 per cent share.
