Yesterday the first 4G LTE Windows Phones at AT&T, including the highly-anticipated Nokia Lumia 900 began to roll out. You can now go online or visit AT&T and Microsoft stores across the U.S. to purchase. Last week, we kicked off a new sweepstakes though its Bing Rewards program. To enter, go to Bing Rewards and sign up for a free account—or sign in with your existing one and click here.
We are excited to get our hands on what is an elegant, intuitive experience that places the user at the center of the experience. Not surprisingly, what excites us the most about these phones is what the team has done with Bing.
Local Scout: Local Scout provides local search results and recommends nearby restaurants, shopping and other activities in an easy to use guide powered by Bing. Whether you’re looking for the best brunch or live music in your area, it’s all a tap away. Simply pick a result and you’ll see everything you need to know —where it’s located, how to get there, who to call, when it’s open, the website, and even ratings and reviews.
The results are arranged by:
– Highlights: Top rated and highly reviewed listings
– Eat+Drink: Nearby restaurants
– See+Do: Nearby attractions and activities
– Shop: Nearby stores
Voice: Search without typing using the voice search functionality.
Music Search: Find what song is playing by letting you phone “listen” to the music. It not only shows you the name, artist, and album, but even shows you where you can hear or buy it.
Bing Vision: You can now use your phone’s camera to look up product information by bringing an object into view.
