Verizon Ditches Google And Sets Bing As Default Search Engine On Its BlackBerry Devices

Has Microsoft managed to one up Google with regards to BlackBerry devices on Verizon Wireless? It seems that Verizon Wireless has changed the default search engine on their BlackBerry products to Microsoft’s Bing search engine, ditching the precious choices such as Google or Wikipedia. You can still go to Google’s site and set it as a bookmark etc, but we’re sure that many folks will be disappointed to have the choice taken away from them. What do you think about this? Are you OK with Bing being your default search engine, or would you prefer to be allowed to keep Google or Wikipedia?
