Alibaba-backed Quixey wants to set the standard for the future of search in China

Quixey , the US-based search engine for apps that Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) invested $50 million into, announced today it has partnered with the Chinese ecommerce titan to launch deep mobile search in China. That means a few things: first, Quixey will now take over mobile search on YunOS, the Alibaba-made Android skin that comes installed on millions of phones sold in China. YunOS will act as a sort of pilot program before Quixey expands to two other Alibaba properties, and possibly much further if it succeeds.
