Steve Ballmer has made ​​an appearance at the BlackBerry World Conference announcing an alliance between RIM and Microsoft to integrate Bing search engine to the BlackBerry products.

Bing will be the default search engine and map provider on BlackBerry devices, the integration will be performed at OS level and not as an application.
