Bing Mobile Search homeBing has updated their mobile search experience on HTML5 enabled mobile smartphone browsers to add a bunch of features. The features include:

  • Transit Directions and Real-Time Transit
  • Image Search with sliders and orientation support
  • Shopping improves access to shopping questions answered, comparison shop, and discover product details and user reviews
  • Added Weather Autosuggest and Instant Answers to the search bar
  • iPhone apps search added when you search using an iPhone
  • Movie search includes time and nearest theatre, along with reviews, synopsis, trailers and additional information

Here is a closer look at the iPhone app results, I am honestly not sure how they rank the results because they are not in the same order as the iTunes Store:
