Baidu's localized search service subsidiary Baidu Japan
has partnered with Japanese PHS operator Willcom Inc.
to release a handset-based Chinese-language voice
search service for Chinese visitors to Japan, reports
China Securities Journal quoting Baidu confirmation.
Baidu Japan has formed partnerships to develop a
shortcut plug-in for Willcom handsets, said the report.
The companies teamed up in September 2008 to provide
handset leasing, a Chinese-language call center and other
information services for Chinese visitors to Japan.
