The talks sound like they are more than merely putting a Google application on the phone. Wang Jianzhou, chairman and CEO of China Mobile, said he has met with Google's CEO twice and they "both share the same idea: how to turn cell phones into a new kind of Internet search engine." He didn't elaborate further than that. Meanwhile, Japanese operator KDDI said it would incorporate Google's search engine into its Internet mobile-phone service beginning in July.
