China's top Internet search engine launched a new mobile application platform named Baidu Yi, and offered a glimpse of its coming mobile operating system, which it hopes will service a growing number of users accessing the Internet from smartphones and tablet computers.
Baidu Yi will enable third-party application developers to create such apps as games, maps and other tools that they can distribute in App Store.
Baidu has built on its dominance of China's search market significantly and now has more than an 80-per-cent market share among China's near half-billion Internet users.
While developing its own products, chief financial officer Jennifer Li said Baidu is also on the lookout for any acquisition and investment opportunities in mobile Internet and cloud computing -- using remote servers hosted on the Internet to manage and store data. Baidu Yi will be rolled out to mobile devices in the future.
