Google to provide mobile search / internet services in China

Darren Murph

In Google's continued dominance of, well, pretty much everything, the company has sealed yet another deal, and this time it's partnering with China Mobile to reportedly "provide mobile and internet services in China." Google stated that it would be providing technology to China's "largest handset operator," allowing searches on the Chinese outfit's "Monternet WAP portal." The service, which has purportedly been in trial operations since last month, is slated to roll out officially in "early 2007," but no hard dates were to be found. Nevertheless, this marks just another day in the world of search giants inking deals with mobile / laptop providers in order to channel more traffic, and subsequently, more revenue based on having their search page load up first when users have a query, and if your handset hasn't been hit by a pre-selected search engine deal just yet, your time is probably drawing nigh.
