Verizon Wireless has confirmed that it no longer offers Google search nor Wikipedia search from within the BlackBerry browser search tool. The default -- and only -- choice is to use Microsoft's Bing search service instead. Verizon spokesperson Jeffrey Nelson said in an email to Phone Scoop, "Customers can go to the web" for searching purposes, and "can go to BlackBerry Apps World and download the Google quicksearch client for free and have a link on the home screen" instead. Verizon said that the change applies to select devices, but didn't name them.
