AT&T favors Yahoo instead of Google for its default search engine in its Android phone
Eerily similar to the events that unfolded between Google's Android launch in China, AT&T executed a move that makes some people scratch their heads – they opted to go with using Yahoo for the default search provider as opposed to Google. This is similar to how Motorola ended up choosing Baidu as the search engine of choice in its Android phone in China as Google and the country were still not in good terms over some recent events. As AT&T customers will soon have their chance in purchasing the Motorola BACKFLIP in stores, rumors also suggest that AT&T might take out some of the native Android apps in favor for their own – this would include AllSport GPS, AT&T Maps, AT&T Music, AT&T Navigator, AT&T Wi-Fi Hotspots, Mobile Banking, MobiTV, MusicID, Where, and YPmobile. It may seem a bit foreign to some customers as they begin to comprehend why a Google Android phone uses Yahoo as its default search engine – we'll see how it all pans out as the BACKFLIP makes its way to Android starved AT&T customers.
