Amazon snubs Google for Kindle Fire HD, Bing is default search provider
8th Sep 2012 | 14:29
Google's loss is Microsoft's gain
Microsoft's Bing will be the default search provider on the new Amazon Kindle Fire HD tablets.
Bing will replace Google, which was the default provider on the original Kindle Fire.
Slap in the face
Microsoft told Business Insider: "Bing will be the default search provider on the new Kindle Fire HD. No other details are available at this time."
Cutting out Google search is a major slap in the face from Amazon.
It uses the Google-built, open source Android OS, yet built its own appstore rather than use the Google Play Store.
