A possible look at the Bing mobile client

By many accounts, Microsoft's launch of its Bing "decision engine" has been largely successful. For our purposes, we're still waiting on a mobile client to replace Microsoft Live Search. And here is a look at what we might get.

IStartedSomething [via] brings us pics from an April presentation showing the mobile client. You'll note the "Kumo" branding, which, as you'll recall, was the codename for Bing.

ISS's Long Zheng notes that the mobile client will expand beyond the United States and support search in the UK, Italy and France. And it's growing from Windows Mobile and also will be supported on BlackBerry, Sidekicks and Verizon BREW phones.

Look for the Bing mobile client in August or September. More pics after the break.

Live Search Mobile already supports the UK, France and Italy from what I'm aware.

Google Search supports the entire world so far. ;)

I actually kind of like the 'Bing' brand, but I'm still puzzled by it from a strategic standpoint. I realize 'Live' wasn't going over like they wanted on the web front. But the 'Live' monicker was the benchmark for gaming platforms and console connectivity with Xbox Live, so it seemed like a natural connection if they were ever able to tie all their various services more closely together. Oh well. Not my concern I suppose.
