Genda writes "Baidu, the Chinese software service giant, has announced it will soon be launching a new smartphone and the cloud-centric operating system (OS) that will power it.

The phone is the Changhong H5018 built by Foxconn and will be the first mobile device powered by Baidu’s "Cloud Smart Terminal" environment. Establishing a new era of sub $150 (1,000 RMB) devices in China.

A 100 GB storage area on Baidu’s cloud Netdrive will be given to each new phone customer, on Wangpan. The Google Drive-like service stores clouded multimedia while linking to the desktop service. The phone will include standard services like Baidu Music, Baidu Map and a broad host of other applications.

Baidu is also preparing its own dedicated app store — the Baidu Cloud Store — which it says will provide access to “a huge range” of apps to cater for the needs of smartphone owners."
