Google, China Mobile Cooperate on Search Services

Google, the world's top search engine, said it is cooperating with China's top mobile carrier to provide mobile and Internet search services in the world's second-largest online market.

Google will provide online search technology to China Mobile, Google said in an announcement, adding that the service will be launched broadly in early 2007.

China ranks behind the U.S. as the world's second-largest Internet market with over 120 million users.

China Mobile said it had 300 million users at the end of November.
