Exclamation New Windows Mobile Bing App! Updated 04/14/2010 Cab Inside.

New Windows mobile Bing app is here!
No clear changlog is out yet.

"It's almost difficult to say how many Windows Phone owners prefer to use Microsoft's own Bing app as opposed to Google's. Luckily for those users who happily rely on using the Bing app, there is an update that brings the app to version 5.1.2010. It's unfortunate that Verizon Windows Phone owners can't get in on this update – that's because it only is available to Windows Phones on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. It's not to say that it's a bad thing for those Verizon owners because it looks to be only a maintenance update and doesn't really offer anything exciting..........."

source: Twitter via WMExperts

I uploaded the Cab here so everyone can download...even us Verizon users that got left out
This cab is for Windows Mobile 6.1 or 6.5.

Cheers!

I still prefer the old Bing/Live Search layout and configuration.

Movie times used to be so easy to browse, with the new style it does a bing search instead of getting the data from a provider. I think MS decided to cheap out. It's now basically useless in my books.

Yeah me as well...
If they could combine the Style/look of the new with the functionality of the older one...they would have a winner

Thanks! I didn't even know this was the new Bing app. Never tried it before since the cabs I tried a while ago never worked. Too bad we can't have both Bing apps...

Using it on my Tmobile HD2 with Energy Rom. Working fine. I was using the previous version too and can't tell if there's any change. Wish it had a functional version of voice SMS like Microsoft TellMe.
