Can I use Google chrome & Google search engine in Lumia 610?

Can Anybody help me? I am Die heart Nokia Lover, wanted to buy a Windows phone. However, I have few queries listed here. Pl clarify. I have to buy one before this sunday.
  1. I heard Lumia 610(windows phone) provide Internet explorer 9.0. Can I change or use Google chrome instead? Is that application supportive?
  2. Lumia provides with Bing as Default search engine. Can I change it to Google?
  3. Zune is the application for transferring the data. Is it like PC suite for Symbian phone? Can’t I transfer the data just by directly connecting it to PC?
  4. Lumia 610 allows data transfer via Bluetooth amongst only windows phone? Can’t I exchange the data with any android or symbian phone via Bluetooth?
  5. Now Lumia 610 is available with WP 7.5 Mango OS. Is it possible to upgrade it with newer versions every time, like in windows PC we upgraded it from windows XP to Vista to 7.

3. Zune does not transfer data, only music and videos. No. No.

4. Lumia 610 does not allow any data transfer over Bluetooth, not even with other Windows phones.

5. You might get get WP7.8 and that will be the end of the upgrades for current WP7.5 phones. No chance for WP8 or later.

I cannot imagine how I could have been any clearer. Here's another attempt:

 

3. Zune is the application for transferring the data - NO, IT ONLY TRANSFERS MUSIC AND VIDEO.

 

Is it like PC suite for Symbian phone? - NO

 

Can’t I transfer the data just by directly connecting it to PC? - NO

 

4.Lumia 610 allows data transfer via Bluetooth amongst only windows phone? - NO, IT DOES NOT ALLOW DATA TRANSFER VIA BLUETOOTH AMONGST ANY PHONES.

 

Can’t I exchange the data with any android or symbian phone via Bluetooth? - NO, SEE ABOVE COMMENT

 

I cannot clarify on your other points, someone else will have to do it.

In answer to 1 and 2 you cannot use Google Chrome.
I think you might be able to change the default sesrch engine on Windows 8 but not in Windows 7. , You can set a live tile shortcut to Google homepage and enter searches that way.

There is also an app which you can use to do searches which will search the terms you input on both Google and Bing which is usually very funny to compare how wildly wrong Bing is compared to Google

. Under my real name I'm moderately well known in my profession. Google gets"me"first time, Bing gets nowhere near.
