    Okay, this is really interesting, since WP8 doesn't even have it. YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR SEARCH ENGINE TO GOOGLE!!! Wow... Check out the video at the 2:48 mark.

    You think WP8 will get this in Apollo+? And btw, I like bing more than google, so it doesn't matter for me.

    Edit: Okay, windows phone 8 has it.

    You can do it in WP8, in fact you could do it even at launch with WP7, just go to Settings>Applications>Internet Explorer>Advanced Settings>Search Provider.

    The search button behavior won't change, it will always map to the Bing App, just the behavior when type a search query into the address bar of IE

    WP 8 has this too. But when you hit the search button you still get Bing.
