T-Mobile makes Google default search engine, replacing Yahoo T-Mobile America has announced the replacement of Yahoo as the default search engine for its line of smartphones, including Blackberrys and WinMo device. Google will now be the default, although users can switch back to Yahoo if they want.
The news follows AT&T's recent announcement that it had selected Yahoo as the default search engine for the new Android-based Moto Backflip.

Yahoo had been the default since late 2008, but that deal appears to have expired.

T-Mobile's Web2Go portal will still be predominantly Yahoo-based, with "prominent placement of Yahoo News, Yahoo Sports, Yahoo Finance, Flickr and weather," says eWeek.
