Apple today announced that Bing will be included as one of the search engine choices within Safari on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and within the Safari browser on the Mac and PC.
Needless to say, we are excited that Bing will be included as an option in Safari because it will make it easier for you to search and get the benefits of Bing. We’ve been working with Apple over the last couple of months to deliver a fantastic Bing offering for Safari, including some awesome HTML5 work for Safari on iPhone, and we hope you will be pleased with the results. Today we are already incorporating HTML 5 into our mobile browse product at m.bing.com.
In addition, we are continuing to improve our existing Bing mobile application for iPhone which makes it easy to search, map, and find commerce and movie times. We will have a new release with even more great features very soon. For those of you that have not already tried it, you can find it in the App Store today.
Stay tuned for more news and availability dates for the new Bing offerings. We hope you enjoy and we look forward to hearing your feedback on how we can continue to improve.
