    Sorry to bump an old thread but I just couldn't resist.

    The question could of have just as well been: What phone did you last get?

    Bing was because my new phone is a Windows phone. I changed the default search engine to Google.

    Funny thing about the Windows phone, it was the only phone OS (Win 8.1) that was not pawned at the most recent PwnToOwn contest.

    Google is the main show for phones, They did a wonderful job integrating everything. If you want to reach out to corporate businesses and offices use bing. People always use IE on their work computers which has bing set stock.
