Bing will be the default search engine on the Kindle Fire HD

With Amazon unveiling their new Kindle Fire lineup at such low prices given the specs of the tablets, it looks like they have been finding numerous ways to make back some of the money they’re going to lose upon each Kindle Fire they’re going to sell. First Amazon places ads around the OS (most notably the lockscreen) to create some extra revenue, and now they have struck a deal with Microsoft to make the Fire’s default search engine into Bing, as opposed to Google Search in the first Kindle Fire.

This is a huge win for Microsoft as we should expect to see the new set of Kindle Fire’s to outsell last years predecessor. Anything to help subsidize the costs of these tablets, right? Looks like there will be some slight drawbacks in having these high end tablets for a cheap price.

EXIF Data Exposes Motorola DROID RAZR HD

We’ve already seen leaked photos of the DROID Fighter, presumably a third phone in the RAZR line after the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX. Some more evidence of a third RAZR was just uncovered in the form of EXIF data on some public pictures found on Picasa, but is it the Fighter or something else?

The EXIF data reveals a device claiming to be the DROID RAZR HD, and the fact that the Fighter was rumored to have a 720p display, this could be the same device. Of course, the EXIF data also reveals a device code name of Vanquish, which we’ve heard before but have no information about.

Is the Vanquish the same device as the Fighter? We don’t know at this point, but why would there be two code names for the same handset? All we know is that Motorola apparently has at least one new device coming in the RAZR line. Check out a screenshot of the EXIF data after the break.
