Verizon and Bing sitting in a tree, No G. o. o. g. l. e….

Wireless carriers form partnerships and deals with various 3rd parties all of the time. For sake of the next 35 seconds of your life, we’re going to focus on the software side of things. If you happen to have a BlackBerry running on Verizon, fire up the ‘ol BB Browser running the latest firmware and take a look in the search box. Chances are you’ll see “Bing” in grayed out incognito colors. RIM going Bing only is one possibility. Though so is a Verizon/Microsoft search deal as well. Whichever the case, having to manually select Google or Yahoo as an alternate search provider each time you were doing a search would be enough of a pain. Too bad there isn’t any option to even switch to a new search engine. Not one. Nadda. Not that anyone uses the BB Browser for any hardcore mobile browsing escapades anyway….
