Apple iPad Search Powered by Google or Bing?

SMS Text

So after weeks of practically making the whole tech industry in active mode with rumors and photo leaks here and there, Apple finally launched its so called “latest creation.” And if you’re following the live coverage in various tech blogs, you all know by now that this product is called – the iPad.

The Apple iPad is practically a bigger iPod Touch, an e-book reader and tablet device that you can use for web browsing.  Wait, I’m pretty sure Steve did not mention something about which search engine will power the iPad’s web browsing feature.

Or is Apple saving the default search engine part announcement for a later date?  Rumor has it that Apple may be replacing Google as the default search engine for iPhone Safari with Bing. But since this may still be in the negotiation stage, so Steve deliberately did not specifically mention if Google will still be the default search engine for the iPad.

So, what do you think guys?  Will Apple finally severe its ties with Google and makes Bing as the iPad’s default search engine?
