When you think of Android, you think Google -- powered by Google, Google Search Bar, Google Apps, Google Sync, etc.

But we also all know how AT&T likes to have exclusives, and, shall we say, "tweak" its devices. And they're at it again with the Motorola Backflip, which has given Yahoo search default function of this device. The search bar, home page and more are Yahoo instead of Google.

AT&T firmly believes Yahoo is the best search engine for this device (or at least Yahoo shelled out enough jing to get on board), and users don't have the option to switch to the Google powered one instead. If users wish to access Google search, they will have to do so through the browser. [via PhoneScoop]
