Bing Maps Technical Evangelist becomes Sr. PM of Bing Mobile

Those of you who have been closely following Microsoft’s Bing and Bing Maps products surely know who Chris Pendleton is. He is announcing today that he will step down from his job as a Bing Maps Technical Evangelist in two weeks to become the Sr Program Manager of Bing Mobile and oversee the development of new unannounced features:

In two weeks, I’ll be stepping down as the Bing Maps Technical Evangelist. For over 3 years of my life I poured my heart and soul into this position to ensure Bing Maps was your mapping platform of choice (not to mention my 8 years at Microsoft in maps and over 10 years helping build some of the coolest enterprise mapping applications!). I traveled around the world and made friends everywhere. I can’t express how much gratitude I have for each of you whether we’ve met in person, communicated on the blog, chatted over email, be-friended on Facebook, stalk each other on foursquare or tweeted at each other on Twitter, all I can say is thank you. Effective September 13, 2010 I’m moving to a Sr. Program Manager position on the Bing Mobile team where I will oversee the development of some as-of-yet unannounced features (that will blow your mind!).

Bing Mobile on Windows Phone 7 still lacks some of the key-features of the desktop version (especially internationally) and the iPhone Application is probably one of the best third-party app currently available in Apple’s Appstore. I personally can’t wait to see what they are cooking.
