Unicom, Telecom partnerships to be announced on May 17th

Cai Hu, general manager of Baidu advertising alliance
Baidu Union, confirmed Thursday that Baidu intends to
announce wireless search partnerships with two telecom
operators on May 17, reports Baidu will partner
with all three of China's telecom operators, said Cai. Cai
did not disclose the partners' names.

Baidu Brand and Marketing Senior Director Zhu Guang
called reports that Baidu has already partnered with
China Mobile "definitely erroneous." Baidu has already
partnered with China Telecom and China Unicom, the
report said. Baidu CEO and Chairman Robin Li said in
April that Baidu was in talks with China Mobile for
3G wireless search and had negotiated with Telecom
and Unicom.
