RIM and Microsoft put Bing on BlackBerry

Microsoft and Research In Motion have announced a partnership that’ll see new BlackBerry devices using Bing as the default search and map application. It means that Bing will be the search app and map app for the new BlackBerry Playbook.

In a blog post, Matt Dahlin, Director at Bing, said “These new experiences highlight how the mobile landscape is changing. We’re going to see a convergence of search, commerce, social and location-centric services where Bing will provide the intelligence and the organizing layer in the cloud that connects a user’s intent with action, helping people be more productive. For us, this goes way beyond a “search box” and links that rank URLs representing a set of web documents. For us, it’s about finding real tools that help real people get things done.”
