Google has been hosting meetings with Google Mobile to try and secure a leading position for Chinese mobile search. The Chinese mobile market is the largest in the world and since there are many more phones than computers, mobile search could become the de facto standard. Google CEO Eric Schmidt has actually hosted the meetings himself according to the AP:

"I recently met with Google's CEO for the second time. And we both share the same idea: how to turn cell phones into a new kind of Internet search engine," said Wang Jianzhou, chairman and chief executive of China Mobile
