    This is not (or at least I don't think it is) a iOS5-new-feature but still.

    When I go the the search screen (when going to the space to the left of the home space), and I type something that is not found in the device, I get the "search Web" and "search Wikipedia" buttons beside a Safari icon

    If I hit any of these, it will do exactly as I expect it to, which is cool.

    My question is the following: where does the "search wikipedia" entry come from? is it native? is it from something I installed?

    My real question is actually if I can add some new search engines on that spot in addition to the web search (which is customizable to Bing, Yahoo and Google) and Wikipedia?

    I do not have any kind of wikipedia app installed and also get the search wikipedia option, so it's not something you installed.

    I do have Wolfram Alpha installed and I do not get the option to search that.
