I am not sure how many of you use Bing for BlackBerry but Barrist let us know that it has been updated today. The new version brings four new features to the table that give Bing some features Google does not offer. I actually downloaded it to check it out!
The new features include:
Homepage Hotspots: If you have a little time to spend and want to explore the day’s image, point around it until you find a hotspot. Hidden in the image, hotspots are intended intrigue and inform you. If you look, you’ll find four of them every day. Each gives you a chance to find out more about the subject of the image.
Flight Status Instant Answer: Never miss a flight again. Simply enter your flight number and Bing for mobile will provide you with the status at a glance.
Bing Image Search – Find the perfect image while you’re on the go. Bing Image Search provides you with gorgeously rendered images formatted for easy viewing on your phone.
“What’s Nearby” – Bing for Mobile has a smart experience for finding local listings like restaurants and attractions using your location to serve up “what’s nearby.”
The only sad thing about the update is that according to their announcement the new version is only available to the following devices:
- BlackBerry® Bold™ 9000
- BlackBerry® Torch™ 9800
- BlackBerry® Curve 2 8520/8530
- BlackBerry® Storm™ 9530
