Baidu’s custom Android ROM now available for Nexus S, swaps Google’s services with Baidu-made clones

by: Mike AndriciJune 1, 2012

Google may well be the most used search engine in Europe and the US, but as it turns out, the Mountain View-based giant is just a minor player in China (the biggest market of them all), accounting for just 14.7% of the search market. When it comes to Google’s mobile OS however, statistics change all of a sudden, and show Android accounting for north of 68% of the Chinese mobile-OS market during Q4 2011.

It’s in this context that Baidu, the leader in China’s search market (with 79% of Chinese searches) has released a custom ROM for Android that swaps Google and most of its services for Baidu’s own search engine and a bunch of other cloud based services, that are very [...]

What do you get when you combine Baidu and Foxconn? If rumors are to be believed, the two Chinese tech powerhouses are planning to collaborate on making an entry level smartphone targeted at the local market. The Baidu-branded phone is expected to have a 3.5-inch touchscreen, high-res camera and a 1400mAh battery. Not the kind of specs that would get our tech juices flowing, but for a predicted price of $159 (or about 1000 RMB), it might become a hit in the mainland.

Baidu, naturally, will take care of the software side of things. The phone will run Baidu’s Yi, a mobile operating system based on Android platform, minus [...]
