No real surprise here, but there was speculation that Windows Phone 7 might allow OEM’s to use a different search engine as part of the allowed customizations. Sounds crazy, but Google does allow Yahoo search on Android, so many not so much. Now comes confirmation from Greg Sullivan, a senior product manager for Microsoft.
“…the search engine has been heavily integrated into the OS, so it would be hard to offer an alternative.”
Of course, bookmarking Google.com is an alternative. Bing is ok for us, how about you?
