Microsoft’s reportedly working on a Bing app for Android. Microsoft’s Decision Engine already claims home on many other mobile operating systems (including Microsoft’s own WinMo) so a move to Android would make a lot of sense. The plans were murmured at Microsoft’s Bing Search Summit taking place in San Francisco.
Microsoft isn’t announcing a lot of new things at this event, but it is talking for the first time about plans for a Bing Android client as well as new mapping features and a new TV listings feature that is in testing and about to launch.
That’s what’s been reported by CNET‘s Ina Fried who’s covering the event. Sounds like it could be pretty cool. I’m sure many of you won’t give up the “Google Experience” for what Microsoft has in store, but if it turns out to be anything like their desktop browser offering, Bing won’t be a bad alternative at all.
