Will this turn the search battle?

Years from now will the Verizon deal with Microsoft be what shifts Google’s search dominance towards Microsoft?

It’s quite interesting.  While desktop search is pretty much owned by Google, I feel there is definitely opportunity in mobile search.  It seems the majority of mobile phone users rarely use search on their phones, and companies have also not exploited ways in which to work advertising into mobile applications.

Verizon is poised to be the #1 mobile service provider.  That gets Microsoft’s search into the hands of a whole lot of people.

This search partnership is being talked about at CES 2009 (Consumer Electronics Show).  CES Coverage by ZDNet.

Since Macworld is also going on right now, I thought this tidbit was nice: Microsoft has been developing applications for the Mac for 25 years.
