Last week Microsoft released version 2 of their mobile search application featuring “Improved Navigation, Cache, Movie Searching, GPS, Traffic reporting and more.”
The Mobile Search team has released V2 of the rich client application for Windows Mobile, as well as a major update to the browser based interface. Whether you have a J2ME (Java) phone, Windows Mobile phone, or any other device with a mobile browser, Live Search has you covered with maps, directions and business search. The J2ME and Windows mobile applications add a bunch of advanced features not possible in the browser based app. There’s also a beta version of the client app for Blackberry devices.
There are more details and screenshots by following the link. When version 1 was released in February the Windows Mobile and Java versions were respectively named Windows Live Search for Windows Mobile and Windows Live Search for Java, but the branding has apparently now been fuzzed with all variants now going under the name of “Live Search for Mobile” or permutations thereof. There are more details on the rich client versions at the FAQ and downloads page (USA and UK only) and the mobile browser version is at http://m.live.com/.
