Motorola And Microsoft Strike A Deal To Put Bing On Cell Phones

Oh the irony of some things. The folks over at Google certainly aren’t going to be too amused to hear that Motorola has just struck up a deal with Microsoft that will see Bing search and mapping services come standard on Motorola’s phones that are powered by Google’s Android OS. In short, there will be a Bing bookmark and search widget loaded by default on your cell phone, starting with Motorola’s phones in China. This might be related to Google’s dispute with the Chinese government, not to mention the possibility that Google might be pulling out of the Chinese market. This news continues the recent trend of setting other search engines are the default on Google’s Android, such as the deal between AT&T and Motorola for the Backflip.
