EXCLUSIVE: Samsung I-400 to Verizon Bing Bing Bing

Pictured here is the upcoming Samsung I-400 headed to Verizon. The bottom shows the secondary display which can carry the time and call related information. There is not much information available except that it has the secondary display and is running Android 2.1 however what is evident and confirmed is this handset is also using Bing as the default search engine. If you remember back a few weeks ago Veizon’s Brenda Raney dismissed a leak by thedroidguy saying that their relationship with Microsoft is not exclusive. However, after the R2-D2 Droid 2 we know that the Merge, the Optimus/Vortex and now the I400 is confirmed to be carrying Bing.  Of course with a little trickery you can have google seach however without the complete search it takes away from a new Android users experience with the OS.

  2. anything android that includes Bing is a #fail to me !!! #cmonson if its not broken why change or act like u fixing it ? There is no way for verizon to answer that !!

  3. Bing Schming, cut the crap already Verizon. Have some class and stick to the format Google Services period!!! They made it let you have it for free so please so some respect.

  4. Why??? Looks pretty pointless unless someone can show good reason for it. Plus it either makes the phone bigger or the main screen smaller. And seriously, Verizon, listen to all of us when we say “knock it off with the Bing crap already!!”.
