The downside is that the phones will come equipped with Microsoft software. So users will get a Bing search widget, a Bing browser bookmark, and Bing's location-based services, including maps. Motorola doesn't say whether or not you can remove the Bing services.

This is Motorola's second phone to have the whole Android experience ruined. Earlier this week, AT&T launched the Motorola Backflip, which does not allow users to install apps from outside the MarketPlace and uses Yahoo as the default search engine.
