Verizon pick Microsoft as their mobile search provider
Microsoft took a clear victory over rivals Google and Yahoo for being Verizon's internet search service for their cell phones. Big Red definitely helped out Microsoft after their failed attempt to make a bid over Yahoo last year. The agreement between the two has been in the works for the past year. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is slated to announce the deal officially during the Consumer Electronics Show which will strengthen their presence. We're not sure how this choice will affect those over in Android land, but it may be some time before Google thinks about releasing an Android device for Big Red.
