Some new Verizon documents that confirm the November 6th launch date and price of the HTC Droid Eris
have been leaked today. The only downside is that the phone will run Android 1.5 instead of 1.6
(or even 2.0
). Hopefully Verizon
will provide an update shortly after release.
Microsoft released an update to the Bing for mobile browser at m.bing.com. A couple of new features have been added to this new version:
- NFL feature – type a team or player and see upcoming games, stats, and scores. While the game is on, you can get real-time updates on the plays. (U.S. only)
- Flight status – enter the airline and flight number and get the latest departure and landing times.
- Bing for touch devices
Great news for you touch phone owners in the U.S.: we have a new version of Bing just for high-resolution touch devices. We optimized for touch navigation to make the most of your phone, and added a great new Movies feature. Search for Movies in your city, and you’ll see the movies playing nearby, showtimes, overviews, and even trailers and video clips.
Keep in mind that bing for mobile browser isn’t Bing Mobile which is a stand alone application for Windows Mobile & BlackBerry devices. The new Windows Mobile version of Bing mobile is supposed to be launched this fall according to the info we got a couple of weeks ago.
