AT&T's First Android Phone to Feature Yahoo Search

When the Motorola Backflip arrives on AT&T's network later this month, it will be the carrier's first phone powered by Google's Android Operating System. While users will have the ability to change the default internet search provider to Google, the phone comes with Yahoo as the default search provider. The Android OS is open source (Apachie License) and handset manufacturers and carriers can make their own modifications without Google's approval, such as setting the search engine.

No word yet on just how this will play into the bizarre AT&T-Apple-Google love triangle, but things have certainly been heating up lately.
