bingWill Bing be the new default search engine for the iPhone? The new rumours are that Bing will be integrated in firmware OS4.0 as the new default  search engine. Does this mean that Google will be removed as the default search engine?

Apple is planning to stop doing business with Google, because Google recently begun competing in several markets “including the mobile market”. At least that are the last rumours according to businessweek. If this is really the case this means that Google Maps also will be removed and Apple will create there own Maps.

“Apple is in talks with Microsoft to replace Google as the default search engine on its iPhone, according to two people familiar with the matter. The talks have been under way for weeks, say the people, who asked not to be named because the details have not been made public.”

Of all the people that used mobile search engines, 86% of the people used Google, Only 11% of the people used Bing “Stats Of November”. If Bing will be the default search engine on the iPhone, microsoft will definitely reach a lot bigger audience than it does now.
