Microsoft has released a revised version of its Bing decision engine software for RIM's BlackBerry platform. The updated app now works with BlackBerry OS6 in addition to making other refinements for older BlackBerry OS's. New features listed by Microsoft include homepage hotspot, flight status, image search, and "what's nearby." The homepage hotspots are hidden in the Bing homepage image and provide more info about that particular image. The flight status feature lets users enter their flight number into the search tool and receive instant status updates. The "what's nearby" feature acts similar to Google Places, and will show users different points of interested that are in the vicinity of their handset. The updated software is free to download and use.
