  1. Google has released its first Windows Phone 7 app: Google Search. The application currently allows you to search in four sections: web, images, local, and news. It also features auto-suggestions (but not Google Instant) and uses your current location to provide more relevant results.

    Good, I don't Like Bing, so I would be swayed more to get a different phone other than a Phone 7 if it was locked to Bing.

    Pretty cool feature from google. It always amazes me how much google has been able to integrate into the web browser you already use on your mobile device. Don't have a windows phone though... last time I had a windows smart phone, I hated it! :(

    Nice to see that Google isn't Ignoring the windows 7 mobile market.

    Cool but not if it's an app. I thought BING for the iPhone was very nicely done but I never used it because it was an app. If it's not integrated, I'm not going to take the time to open it up just to use it.

    I'm pretty certain Microsoft is not going to allow a integrated Google search bar on their phones.

    Too bad Google cant completely replace everything Bing on the device, I would consider getting a Windows phone if they could... I don't like Bing very much at all.

    Not a bad move at all.

    MS didn't do anything wrong when they integrated bing in their product, because that is exactly what google did with android. By the way we do remember how Google got this big right?

    As an alternative Bing is just as good as goolge.

    In the words of Martin Lawrence, "You so crazy"

    I also found it funny how you capitalized "Bing", but didn't do the same with "goolge", or spell it right for that mater. Was this mere coincidence, or intentional? ...Do you work for Microsoft? :suspiciou

    I don't like bing at all (except maybe the maps which are a bit better than google's). They also need to port the preview feature that they are working on at the moment (although the small screen is a bit of a drawback).
