Bing for Mobile Adds NFL and Flight Instant Answers, Optimized Touchscreen Experience

Bing has updated their mobile search offering, which can be found at Included in the update are Instant Answers for NFL players as well as Flight Status.



Also included in the update is an optimized experience for certain touchscreen devices used in the United States. Devices include iPhone, Zune HD, T-Mobile G1, Verizon Imagio, and Samsung Omnia. Additional devices will be added in the future.

The navigation is improved and visual search for movies has been implemented. This might be a rolling update because my iPhone didn’t show the updated results shown in the blog. The movie search is still very nice on my iPhone, just not what I saw on the Bing blog. Here’s two screenshots. The first one is from the Bing blog, the second one from my iPhone.
