Free Mobile Apps by Bing Available Today
As I saw the headline pop up on my Windows Phone 7 handset while reading through my RSS feeds I thought “terrific – some free apps to enjoy from Bing”.
However, as I read the post in detail I quickly learned that the three apps Bing Mobile was offering for free were for the iOS and Android systems.
Conspicuously absent from the list of support mobile OS’s – Windows Phone 7.
As they would say on ESPN’s NFL Countdown “Come on Bing!”
Like I heard in a certain Windows Phone 7 commercial Really?
How do mobile apps built for Microsoft’s flagship search engine get made for all the other phones first?
Far be it from me to hold back the info on the freebies though. Here are the games for those other systems:
