Motorola, Microsoft, team up for Bing on smartphones Motorola and Microsoft have announced a new deal today that will make Bing search and maps the default for the smartphone maker's Android-based phones.
The phones will now come with a search widget pre-loaded.

The company signed a similar deal with Baidu last week, to make Baidu the default Web search engine for Android phones sold in China.

The moves come as Google continues its dispute with China over censorship, a fight that has yet to be resolved, and one in which Google threatened to pull its search engine service from the country entirely.

Hopefully you'll be able to change the default search engine to a good one, without jumping through too many hoops.
