China's Web Battle Goes Mobile

The iPhone 5 launch on Wednesday, Sept. 12, is sure to be the most important event for tech investors this year. The Motley Fool will be hosting a live chat where our top tech analysts will answer your questions and break down what the announcement means for Apple and tech investors everywhere. Be sure to swing by Fool.com at 12:45 p.m. ET next Wednesday for all your coverage of Apple's next big announcement.

Senior Technology Analyst Eric Bleeker takes a look at the continuing battles in the Chinese Internet space, this time examining recent mobile moves. The big news in the space across the past week had Baidu taking another run at creating a relevant mobile browser after its first attempts failed to gain traction. Then we had Baidu's new search nemesis, Qihoo, seeing Huawei end a recent partnership to create customized smartphones for the company. 

China's mobile Internet is taking off at unheard-of growth rates, and the battle for key technologies such as mobile browsers is far from over. Yet with the likes of Xiaomi already seeing huge sales and holding Apple-like release events for its own lower-priced phones, don't expect Qihoo to make much of a dent in the space. To see Eric's full thoughts, check out the video. 

If you're looking at the jaw-dropping growth rates in the Chinese mobile market and wondering how to play the market, Baidu remains one of your best bets. If you're thinking about investing in the company or just looking for more information about the Chinese Internet space, our brand-new premium report breaks down the dominant Chinese search provider's strengths and weaknesses.
