Microsoft’s Bing search engine is NOT the default search engine on Apple’s iPad, according to someone who has used the device, contrary to some speculation that it might be.
Google’s search engine is the default iPad search engine, and Yahoo is the other option in Apple’s settings, according to this person.
That’s not to say that Apple and Microsoft won’t make Bing the default iPad search engine sometime down the line, or at very least, an option.
Apple’s deal with Google might be on a yearly basis or on a major iPad OS version basis. Who knows, maybe Apple will announce Bing as the default at WWDC for iPhone OS 4.0. Or maybe it never will.
