Bing to power searches on BlackBerry smartphones

Published on .

Redmond, Wash.—Microsoft Corp.'s Bing search engine has been chosen by Research in Motion to be the default search engine on its BlackBerry smartphones. Bing will be integrated into new RIM smartphones, including the newest version of its BlackBerry Bold, which debuted this week. Earlier this year, Bing was chosen as the default search engine by Nokia Corp., whose Bing-powered smartphones are due to be shipped in 2012. Microsoft continues to work hard to increase its market share of Internet searches, but still lags. According to Internet research company comScore Inc., Google had 65.4% of all searches in February, compared with Bing's 13.6%, which includes searches on Bing-powered Yahoo sites.
