Microsoft does a little more for mobile internet

Microsoft is a big company that has a lot of things going at once, but it seems the squeezed in an update to Bing into there  schedule. Recently a new version of Bing was deployed and with that comes many new features that improve the small search engines user experience.

The update includes a Flight status, NFL team info and it is now optimized for touch screen phones. It seems Microsoft has been busy working on the little things so when they release the next big thing (WM7.0) it will be that much better.

Here are the change log from Bing blog.

*NFL feature – type a team or player and see upcoming games, stats, and scores. While the game is on, you can get real-time updates on the plays. (U.S. only)
*Flight status – enter the airline and flight number and get the latest departure and landing times.
*Bing for touch devices – Great news for you touch phone owners in the U.S.: we have a new version of Bing just for high-resolution touch devices. We optimized for touch navigation to make the most of your phone, and added a great new Movies feature. Search for Movies in your city, and you’ll see the movies playing nearby, showtimes, overviews, and even trailers and video clips.
