Bing! BlackBerry to add Microsoft's search engine to its OS for search and maps
Microsoft and RIM have reached an agreement for the Bing search engine to be placed right onto the BlackBerry OS instead of making it available as an app to be downloaded on the phone. Bing will become the default search engine and map provider for all BlackBerry devices and will bring voice and location based search to 'Berry handsets.

With all of this news about Bing being added directly to the BlackBerry OS, and with RIM already having introduced the latest BlackBerry 7 OS, it suggests that we should see another OS build for BlackBerry before the end of the year. Just maybe it means that the hoped for QNX based OS for BlackBerry handsets will be launched before the last page of the 2011 calendar is turned.
