T-Mobile, the wireless provider that brought out the first Google Android phone in the US and is the exclusive carrier for the Google-built Nexus One, has announced that it will now use Google as the default search engine for all of its handheld devices.

T-Mobile previously used Yahoo as the primary mobile search provider for its non-Android phones.

In a move to push itself out of a slump, Yahoo tried to make itself relevant by investing in the mobile search market years ago. It started to make a name for itself and was adopted by most major carriers. That is, until Android came along.

There are still some big names that use Yahoo as their primary search tool...the iPhone, for example.
