Baidu, Dell team up to produce the line of smartphones, and tablets in China

Just a few days after the introduction of Android as its own OS, Baidu is now looking to expand its mobile reach the front of the hardware, with help from Dell. According to Reuters,
the Chinese search giant has joined forces with the PC manufacturer to produce a line of tablets and smartphones in China, hoping to capitalize on a market of over 900 million mobile subscribers. A Dell spokesman declined to give a launch date of the new product line, but sources familiar with the matter say they could launch in November. Instrument Details remain as opaque, but Dell seems to resurrect his tablet / handset unit, following the collapse of the Streak 5 . We have a partnership with Baidu, and you know, we have the Streak 5 tablet, so that the partnership will be in this space, the company representative said, adding that future versions imply Baidu platform mobile application, as well. Today’s announcement also comes after Dell’s Chinese sales rose 22 percent in the first quarter of this year, but it remains to be seen whether the alliance will have much effect on a market today dominated by Apple and Lenovo.
