Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said there is a 70 percent chance Apple will roll out a mobile search engine tailored for its iPhone within the next five years. As the search provider for the iPhone, Google sees what iPhone users are searching for, which can help it tailor software and services for its own mobile smartphones. This competitive advantage has not gone unnoticed by Apple. Building its own iPhone-centric search engine would help Apple shield Google from its App Store data, Munster said in a March 30 research note.

Apple doesn't have the resources to create a search engine
If Apple makes this new search engine, it will be tailored specifically for iPhone users, so they will have 100% of the market.
Apple doesn't have the RESOURCES? Are you saying that only PetroChina and ExxonMobil can even attempt to buy a bunch of cheap computers and write an algorithm to crawl the web?
A lot many of the iPhone users would quit using their device if Apple is going to force them to use iSearch instead of Google.
Well, a lot many are already feeling bugged with not being able to use services like Google Voice.
