Blackberry devices to adopt Bing as default search engine

At the ongoing BlackBerry World 2011, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced a partnership between Microsoft and RIM. Both the companies will work together to help people make better decisions with Bing on BlackBerry devices.

According to Matt Dahlin – Director, Bing;

Blackberry devices will use Bing as the preferred search provider in the browser, and Bing will be the default search and map application for new devices presented to mobile operators, both in the United States and internationally. Also, effective today Bing will be the preferred search and maps applications with regular, featured placement and promotion in the BlackBerry App World carousel.

Bing is also now shipping as the default search experience, and map app, for the newly released BlackBerry Playbook. Together, we’ll also market and promote the strength of our joint offerings as Making better decisions with Bing on BlackBerry.

These new experiences highlight how the mobile landscape is changing. Devices are becoming sensors that can provide real-time access to information to help people quickly complete tasks on the go.
