Microsoft and Verizon have entered into a five year deal to pre-install Microsoft's Live Search on Verizon Windows Mobile Phones as the default search engine. The announcement was one of many made at 2009 CES and may give Microsoft new hope in tackling the popularity of Google search engines.

This comes on the heels of Microsoft updating Windows Live Search mobile recently which makes it compatible with non-GPS enabled phones and older WM 5 phones.
