Wikipedia: Coming to an iPhone/iPad/iPod search near you

(different search engine strings on left, Firefox 3.6 for Mac on the right)

Here’s some more interesting information from the 3.2 SDK while we wait for the developer site to come back up.  It isn’t a biggie like Bing, but you will be able to set your search to something besides Google in the search bar of the iPad’s Safari in upcoming iPhoneOS releases. 

Right now, the two options besides the current default Google are Wikipedia and Yahoo, but plugins *could* be developed to do things like Amazon and Bing searches directly from the search bar in the Safari browser. 

Not that Apple isn’t 100% completely happy with Google right now or anything.

There is even a suggestion manager for both Google and Yahoo depending on which search engine you choose.  Again, no Bing
