Bing to power search and maps on future BB devices

More from BlackBerry World 2011, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer just announced that Bing will be the default search and map provider on all future BB devices and it’s not going to be just another pre-installed app on BB devices but Bing will be integrated into BB devices at what they call “OS level”.

An OS level integration will allow third party apps on BB devices to access Bing services right within the app. Other benefits include Bing voice searches, panoramic photo stitching using the Microsoft Photosynth technology and street-level maps.
