Google's Mobile Search Market Share: 98.29%

We all know that Google is pretty much dominating the desktop search market, but a new analysis from Pingdom shows the mobile market is even more under Google's control . Google appears to be rocking a 98.26% share of mobile searches. The nearest competitor is Yahoo, with about 0.8%. Probably all from the Motorola Backflip.

It's clear this is due to Google's placement on the iPhone and Android as the default search engine. Microsoft's Bing has less than half a percent of mobile searches. When Windows Phone 7 launches, it will have Bing as the built-in search provider. But is that enough to even put a dent in Google's piece of the pie?

Honestly, we can't think of a time we've used a search engine other than Google on a phone. Have you?
