Orange and Baidu put weight behind Android in Africa

africa_orangeOrange and Baidu have partnered on an enhanced browser for customers in Africa and the Middle East.

This is Baidu’s firs global operator deal to co-develop such a browser for emerging markets. It is available in Arabic and English with French in development and will be pre-installed on Android devices across Orange’s 24 AMEA territories.

The browser offers one-click access and its enhanced data compression of 90% means faster access for AMEA customers. According to Orange, the company’s AMEA revenues in 2011 were 3.7 billion Euros, a figure they expect to ‘double’ by 2015.
