Bing updated with mobile speech-powered search
Microsoft's Bing search platform has been updated for Windows Mobile phones and for desktop PCs. One of the biggest changes – the ability to search the internet by speaking – is apparently only available for users in the USA, although changing the region settings from "United Kingdom" to "United States" enables UK users to search by voice as well. However, this results in other US-only features being shown on-screen. More details about the changes are on the Bing blog.
