So I tried Microsoft’s Bing search … meh. It’s a nicer page than Google, but the results were less than expected and it feels like a rebadged Live Search page – which it probably is regardless of the new search algorithm.
The biggest gap for me though is the sheer lack of mobile access. I’ve tried to view Bing on my E75 twice today and instead of a simple mobile search page ala Google, I got the full web site instead. This is a total waste of bandwidth the time spent loading does not pay off on a site that’s easy to manage on the small screen. It’s 2009 Microsoft, the PC is just one of many things we use to connect.
BTW – Yes I know you can load m.bing.com to get the mobile site, but Microsoft should be redirecting automatically. Get serious about the fight and do the right things to earn customer attention!
