Nokia seems to be hedging its bets, now integrating Microsoft Live Search into its Mobile Search platform, “Mobile Search platform, thus enabling consumers access to Live Search directly from their Nokia Nseries multimedia computers and other compatible Nokia S60 devices. Live Search will provide advanced web search results in 14 languages…Microsoft will provide advanced search results for web search, as well as quick and easy access to information such as stock quotes, movie times, and common facts via Encarta Instant Answers”.
Nokia already had plans to put Yahoo Search on the Nseries handsets, I don’t know whether that has changed or the handset giant will run both services side by side. It could also be a way to reduce the importance of the search engine’s brand — multiple search engines, one Nokia.
