    Apparently the Google versus China war of words has led to Motorola getting rid of Google and using Microsoft Bing search and maps in Chinese Android phones. This is starting to get interesting. (Just don't mess up that 2.1 release :icon_eek: )

    Interesting, maybe that means will finally be able to get a Bing app for our phones. Sorry Google fans but the Bing app (for WM) phones is just so much better (more features) than Google's Maps... that's the one thing I REALLY miss from WM (well, okay that and SASHIMI).

    I think we're all going to see how "open" the Android platform is.
