October 31, 2009 – 8:13 pm on
- Flight status searches = You can now enter the airline and flight number and get the latest departure and landing times of the respective flight.
- Live NFL stats = Now you can type a team or player and see all the upcoming games, stats, and scores etc. And while the game is on, you can get real-time updates on the score as well. (U.S. only)
- An Optimized Version for Touch devices = Bing has been now optimized for touch navigation to make the most of your phone, and there is a new feature called “Movies” feature for all the US Bing-ers. You can search for Movies in your city, and you will see the movies playing nearby, showtimes, overviews, and even trailers and video clips. Note this optimized version works only on the iPhone, Zune HD, T-Mobile G1, Verizon Imagio, and Samsung Omnia. They will be adding support for all the remaining devices over the next couple of months.
Looking at these new features, I feel Bing keeps up adding such good features, then it will definitely be in the reckoning for the top mobile search website very soon. What do you feel? Do share your views.
