    Baidu launches mobile browser

    Reuters has an article announcing Baidu shipping a mobile browser.

    * Baidu launches mobile browser to compete with UCWeb, Google, Apple

    * Baidu's mobile browser highlights shift to mobile, cloud computing

    * Baidu's monetization of mobile is medium-term concern - analyst

    BEIJING, Sept 3 (Reuters) - China's dominant search engine Baidu Inc rolled out a mobile browser on Monday to help secure its share in a mobile Internet market that surpasses the U.S. population in size and to fend off smaller rivals such as Qihoo 360 Technology Co.

    Most of you have been around long enough to remember the Internet Explorer fight with Netscape for market share.  When Microsoft won the battle it cut back on its IE staff, dropping the Mac, and a skeleton crew on mobile.  Baidu, Apple, Google, Mozilla, and many others are fighting for the mobile browser share.

    Notice how all the big data center players have a browser play - Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon.

    The desktop battle is intense again.  The mobile market is even more fierce.

    Microsoft has a TV commercial for IE9 with no mobile in it.
