Windows "Does Windows Phone need Google and its services to be successful? No. The fate of Windows Phone and its adoption in the marketplace does not rest in the hands of Google. Microsoft itself holds the key to Windows Phone becoming a successful platform, rapid evolution of its cloud services and integration with the rest of the MS eco system." Good editorial on Google killing AES support for consumers and how it affects Windows Phone, by WPCentral's Robert Brand.

IIRC the upcoming WP7.8 update allows you to select Google as the default search engine instead of Bing.

If 7.8 can do it I'm sure WP8 can/will too.

Personally I have no problems with Bing search, or Google.
