Windows Live Search Beta For Mobile

The Live Search Blog announced the release of Live Search Mobile client for your mobile device. The mobile client allows you to use Windows Live’s “local search, maps, driving directions, and live traffic information.” I have not downloaded it to my Treo, but I like Gizmodo’s Windows Live Search For Mobile vs. Google Maps Mobile write up.

    Thanks for this. I try to read all I can on mobile marketing.

    You guys weren’t kidding when you said Dec. 1. What is that, 7 posts in the last 2 hours. Geesh, y’all are dedicated. ;)

    I wonder if they’ll offer an opt-in service to triangulate the location of a mobile and automatically use it as the starting point for directions?

    Thanks for the heads upon that, its only helping the team drive harder on our mobile marketing campaign.

    By the way, thanks for letting us be a part of your world, you certainly know whats going on.

    While I would much rather use Google Maps, having a native client on my Windows Mobile phone is leading me in the direction of Live here. The client looks nice, and I’m sure it’s faster than the Google client.
