T-Mobile HTC HD7 owners running Mango can select their search engine preference in IE9

T-Mobile HTC HD7 owners running Mango can select their search engine preference in IE9
Some might see it as a healthy gesture, while others might simply be irked by it, but it appears that T-Mobile HTC HD7 owners running Mango have the option of selecting which search engine they want to use with Internet Explorer 9.

Granted that we’re not surprised with Bing being the default one in use by the platform, you can actually change it to Google under the IE9 settings menu. For long time user of the platform, this might be seen as a foreign concept – especially when Bing is ingrained deeply with the mobile platform. Nevertheless, it’s still nice giving users the opportunity of which one to choose.

So far, there’s no exact reasoning as to why this option is only available on the Mango flavored HTC HD7 for T-Mobile only. Still, the rest of us sporting Mango will have to make due with Bing as the primary and mandatory option for now.

It is a search engine. I like google better as well, but Bing does the job. Kinda cool though, that the first W7 device gives a little extra option for their users.
