Microsoft And yes, the legal news just continues to come. With high-profile lawsuits going on in the world of technology (Nokia vs. Apple, Apple vs. HTC), we really can't get around lots and lots of news about the subject. This latest tidbit we have for you is most interesting, and only serves to further confirm the rumours that Bing might become the default on the iPhone: Microsoft has more or less endorsed Apple's lawsuit against HTC.

Bing as default

The big question is this: will we still be able to switch back to Google

How is it currently, is it possible to switch from Google to Bing now?

If it's already locked down, there is no doubt it will stay that way even if they change the default.

It's not possible to switch to Bing, but you can choose between Yahoo and Google (with Google being the default). So, since there is already a mechanism to switch search engines, the logical choice for Apple, if they were to change the default to Bing, would be to keep Google as an option.

Of course there is always the Wrath of Steve to keep in mind, but I don't think they would completely remove Google as an option.
