Last night at the 2010 CES in Las Vegas, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer took to the stage to deliver his keynote address. He, of course, included Bing in his speech, noting one important announcement regarding the newbie search engine.
Bing will be set as default on HP devices in 42 countries. Additionally, MSN will be set as default as the homepage in the agreement.
This is an expansion of a previous agreement where HP would ship their 2009 PCs with the Live Search toolbar. Live Search, was, of course, Bing's predecessor. Bing launched in June 2009.
