According to report "Verizon will be dropping Google search from all future Android devices, and replacing it with Bing citing two anonymous tipsters and the apparent absence of the Google search bar from Verizon's Samsung Fascinate Android phones."

A Microsoft representative indicates that Bing will, in fact, be preloaded on upcoming Verizon Android devices, but suggests it won't be completely taking them over: The official statement from the Redmond company: "Over the coming months, Verizon will announce the launch of new Android devices, which will be pre-loaded with Bing. The deal for Verizon Android devices is not exclusive."
