Verizon Wireless Signs Exclusive Search Deal with Google

America’s second largest wireless provider has inked a deal with the world’s most popular search engine, effectively making Google the default search provider on all Verizon Wireless phones.

Google gets the advantage of getting into the hands of nearly 70 million subscribers, further expanding its influence on our web surfing habits. In exchange, Verizon gets a cut of the search revenue generated through sponsored links and the like.

The agreement is pretty much a done deal, but VZW and the Goo still have “a few issues” to work out before they can move forward, the biggest of which is Google wants to save all the searches on its servers. This way, they can know what people are looking for on their phones.
