In a move that might surprise some, it appears that AT&T has had Motorola configure it’s BACKFLIP smartphone to use Yahoo! as the search engine of choice.  Yahoo! and AT&T have an ongoing agreement that stipulates that Yahoo! is the default search engine on AT&T’s MEdia Net web portal.

As a result, there’s no voice searching capability on the phone and the Google search homescreen widget is nowhere to be found.  Yahoo is also the default search engine in the BACKFLIP’s web browser.
