Bing to Be Default RIM Search and Map Tool
Effective today, Bing will become the preferred search and mapping application for BlackBerrys. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said that Bing will be deeply integrated into the operating system level of the BlackBerry platform by the end of the year. Ballmer noted that this will be much more deeply built into the platform than simply just providing Bing search and maps. Ballmer said that Bing's presence in BlackBerry OS will go far beyond a search box. Microsoft and RIM did not indicate when the integration would take place, and which devices will be first to offer it. The stand-alone Bing search app is already available to BlackBerries via App World.
