    Well, for the 9700 it is. Bing - click on Download Interactive Client. It's 1.5MB for me, so I'm hoping it's 1.5MB of awesomeness.

    Neat!

    Bing Maps (which I like better than Google Maps)
    News
    Search
    Weather

    Pretty slick. It's like a combination of Poynt and Google.

    The Bird's eye view from Microsoft was ok until Google Maps came out with Street view.. no competition in my eyes.

    Gad...does absolutely nothing on my Bold running 5.0.0.314. I mean nothing, except take up space. Not even an error message.

    Seems to be working fine on my 8330m. Only thing I noticed when I clicked on US news and world news I get nothing, just a blank screen with a header saying US news or world news. Everything else seems to work though. I might consider getting rid of google maps for this.

    I don't get Bing. Wish I did, but I don't. Lotsa glitz and nothing behind it.

    Bing has released 4 more BB devices this morning. Known as HighRes release for us, we are proud that BB 8900, 9000, 9600 and 9700 are supported now for all US operators.

    More information @ Bing BlackBerry Team - Windows Live

    For Sprint, we have a known issue that News don't work. We are working to fix that. State/Local news still works.

    I've tried it twice and both time it ends up hanging my BB8900 (4.6.1.310) with the black and white error screen and the "reload software 552" error message. I have to use DM to uninstall it to bring my BB back to life.

    You are not lying about that man.

    Google maps are far superior. I downloaded it on my flashed BB 8330 but getting it running is another issue.

    Bricked my Tour, too! I'm so mad. This is the second time this has happened to me in two weeks. The first one was Ticketmaster. So annoying!!!

    Downloaded and installed it and my phone locked up when it began to configure. Re-booted the phone and nothing happens when I try to run it.

    It didn't lock up my Bold running first 5.0.0.314, now 5.0.0.411, but nothing happens when I try to run the program. No crash, no hang...nothing at all. Disappointing, because I like the app when it worked, which was before it was officially Bing.

    Just installed Bing on my Tour. HUGE DIFFERENCE!!!!

    Wow...I had no problems at all getting GPS to work just about anywhere on my old 8900, but on the Tour I could never get a satellite. I had to be out in a field, 30-40 feet from any large structure, and I couldn't even hold my hand over the device or it wouldn't lock on.

    Not with Bing.

    I installed it, and it immediately locked on to my GPS location within seconds FROM INSIDE A THREE STORY BUILDING!

    Now I'm a believer! I was afraid that maybe they just designed the Tour with a crappy GPS radio, but the real problem is that Google is falling behind. Thanks, Bing!!!

    Oh and PS--Bing locks on immediately, and Google Maps is still "Waiting for GPS!"
