Google announced that it has forged an alliance with China Mobile to provide mobile and Internet services in China, AFP reported. In a statement on Thursday the world's top internet search engine said it would provide technology to China Mobile, the nation's largest handset operator, allowing searches on the Chinese firm's Monternet WAP portal. The service entered trial operations in December and would be rolled out in early 2007. China's 132 million online users rank second only to the United States as the world's largest Internet market. In a separate development, Google will buy a stake in Chinese peer-to-peer file sharing network operator, Xunlei Networking Technology Co. The semi-official China Daily newspaper said Google is reportedly partnering with Ceyuan Ventures, a Shanghai-based venture capital firm, for the investment. An official announcement is expected Friday.
