Research in Motion and Microsoft have announced a deal to make Bing the default search provider for BlackBerry phones. Bing services will also be tightly integrated into the operating system, including Bing maps and location services, local deals, voice recognition, and more.

Since this isn’t just a series of apps, but rather deep system-level stuff, it means that you’ll be able to access location, search, and other features from withing other apps. Microsoft’s Photosynth technology for stitching together multiple photos to create a panorama is also coming to Blackberry.
