A surprise visit at the BlackBerry World Conference was Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. The surprise was to announce a partnership between BlackBerry and Bing. Not only will Bing be the default search and maps engine of BlackBerry products,
but it will also be deeply integrated into BlackBerry’s new operating system. The integration is to make it easier for future tools to work in lockstep with the phone or tablet.
