Bing for Mobile app for iPhone and Android is now available in the United States (coming soon to RIM and Windows Phone 7 devices).

"Today's update uses HTML5 to blend the mobile browse experience with the app experience so you get a consistent and fast mobile search experience whether you're using m.bing.com from your browser or the Bing app," revealed Santanu Basu, Product Manager, Bing for Mobile.

The update includes several cool new features such as:

  • Maps/List Split View: Provides a dynamic way to synchronize a list such as business listings and directions and a map in a single view making it easy to see the location of what you're searching for. Also works for driving directions and transit.
  • Deals: One-stop deal shopping and convenient mobile phone access for local deals from more than 100 deal providers across the US.
  • Video Domain: launched last month on m.bing, the new video domain is now available on iPhone.
  • Transit/Real-Time: the Android app now features transit routing/real-time transit and news- all features that were previously only available on m.bing.com.
