Baidu ROM released for Nexus S, also coming to other ICS handsets

Internet users in India may not be familiar with Baidu, but it is one of the most popular search engines in the world with a China-centric audience. Now, if a report by The Next Web is anything to go by, then it appears that Baidu is looking to take on Google in more than just the Internet search space, but also in the smartphone arena by building a custom ROM that replaces the entire Google suite of applications with their own.
The report states, “Baidu unveiled its new smartphone push earlier this month, when it announced details of an Android-based cloud-centric operating system, ‘Baidu Cloud’, but it is now in the market to ‘take-over’ active Android phones in China. That’s a huge base of devices, as Android accounted for 68.4 percent of new smartphone sales in China during the final quarter of 2011.”

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
