Nokia continues to expand the capabilities of it’s Nokia Nseries mobile phones/multimedia computers. Last week Nokia announced the availability of upgraded LifeBlog 2.0 software for Nseries phones. Today mobile phone giant said that it has developed new search application with leading Chinese search engine Baidu, to easily enable Baidu search on Nokia Nseries and other selected Series 60 OS devices.
Users of the Nokia Mobile Search Application on the high-end Nokia N70, Nokia N90 and other select S60 Nokia devices, will be able to access Baidu wireless search services via a user friendly search icon on the screen interface.
The Nokia Mobile Search Application with Baidu wireless search services is designed to provide a simple and convenient way for users of these Nokia devices to search for information online and to connect with Baidu online communities via wireless connections. Four of Baidu’s most popular services, including Web Search, News Search, Image Search and Baidu Post Bar, a popular Baidu online community invented by Baidu, are provided in the application.
A free download of this pilot application will be available from today for select Nokia devices in mainland China from Nokia Mobile Search page.
