‘Bing’ to run on Android? Quiet confusing as recently we reported on the search engine war in which the stats clearly stated that Bing has finally taken the lead over Yahoo to become the second best search engine in the world, even though, Google has a way good lead against it. Recently, we spotted Verizon set the ‘Bing’ search engine as the default search service on Samsung Fascinate.
Users might surely get freaked to see this as Android being Google’s product and Google being the best search engine ever missing from its own powered Android Smartphone.
Even though we might wanna agree that Bing is surely not a bad app but we surely would prefer Google over Bing. Well, lets stop criticizing the Android App and start with a short review on the App.
Bing’s search over the Verizon handset is surely stylish. Bringing in the same interface it is used to, the background image update. You would be able to spot a few tabs at the bottom of the page giving you the privilege to search through, an image search, Movie related search, Bing Maps, Local Tab, a News Tab, and Directions.
The image search brings in some excellent results displaying a wide variety of images in small windows preview. Just click the relevant image and it would bring in a larger and much crispier view on your Samsung Fascinate large display.
Same would you find things over a movie search which would display movies being played near you, revealing ratings, a small review, length of the movie as well as the image. Clicking the link would reveal the complete details with a better description on the movie.
Bing maps, not as powerful and fast as the Google maps but surely a nice view on your smartphone. A small circle in blue indicates your current destination.
Furthermore, you would see the same happening with the other tabs.
