PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Baidu, a company primarily known for its search engine in China, has announced that it is launching a new mobile operating system: Yi. The new OS is to be forked off of Android and Baidu will be providing its own apps and services in lieu of Google's apps. Those apps should include Baidu-based maps, ebooks, downloadable music, cloud storage, and cloud backup. There will also apparently be a custom SDK and app store for the platform."

I haven't seen much Android powered phones in China, so I guess baidu will have a difficult task to win over customers from the far more popular nokia and iphone platforms.
