Baidu (BIDU) is looking to acquire top Chinese mobile browser UCWeb ... at least according to a badly-translated Chinese article UCWeb itself is promoting. In theory, buying UCWeb, which believed to account for ~1/3 of all Chinese mobile browser pageviews, would make sense for Baidu, given it could boost the company's mobile search and software ambitions. But the nature of this "rumor" makes a heavy dose of salt mandatory.
