Not to be outdone by arch-rival Google, Microsoft has announced that it will be integrating its Live Search technology into the BlackBerry Browser and BlackBerry Maps.
Google announced this week that its Google Apps for Mobile is available to download for the BlackBerry.
BlackBerry users will now be able to use Live Search within the BlackBerry Browser as well as access Live Search on Mobile.BlackBerry.com, said Research in Motion (RIM).
Users will also be able to perform location-based searches from inside BlackBerry Maps, according to RIM.
"Offering Live Search on BlackBerry smartphones extends choice for our customers and allows users to conveniently and quickly search the internet when they are mobile," said Mark Guibert, vice president of corporate marketing at RIM.
The service will be available later this year.
In related news, RIM also announced that it is working with MySpace to create a customised MySpace Mobile application for the BlackBerry.
