The Bing Community Blog recently announced an updated version of the Bing Mobile App and details some of its new features for Windows Mobile users:

  • The first is a redesign to the home page. We changed the navigation to give people faster access to common searches, such as Movies and Traffic.
  • The second feature is turn-by-turn navigation for Windows 6.x phones, powered by Bing Maps. We took advantage of the Microsoft Tellme team’s expertise in voice applications to deliver an amazingly lifelike voice experience for the turn-by-turn navigation

According to the announcement blog entry from Justin Jed this update works with the following phones:

  • HTC Fuze
  • HTC Pure
  • HTC HD2
  • HTC Tilt 2
  • HTC Touch Diamond 2
  • HTC Touch HD
  • HTC Touch Pro
  • HTC Touch Pro 2
  • Motorola Q9c
