    I had no idea that after selecting the magnifying glass button to get Bing search, you can swipe from right to left and get more stuff, very cool!

    Try searching for a local business such as Chipotle, then swipe to the local tab. Click on one and it will show business hours (very handy), phone number, address, website, and one click to launch drive navigation. IMO this is what separates WP from the rest...no other OS ties it all together like this. The search is truly a one-stop place for local businesses, news results, web results, images, deals, movies...everything.

    then get the app 'add to contacts' and when you launch it from within your search it will add that business to your contacts list.

    Exactly. I downloaded the Google search app and compared it against Bing. Using voice for both searches, I searched for "Home Depot." Bing gave me local stores with phone numbers and "one click to launch drive" addresses, and Google tried to sell me stuff.

    So, the Google app has been uninstalled...:dry

    I'm glad people are digging the Bing search/local scout features. They've been around since the beginning and blow away any other device I've ever used. Its hard to explain these features to people, you just have to use it to 'get' it.

    Search by far the best of all the platforms. You can search and get directions, numbers, hours so much faster and easier.

    I've been using the Bing search app in the phone for a while. I have the NL 900 as well. To be frank, it is very useful. When I wanted to look for the NL 920 availability in a store near my work, I just typed "AT&T" on the search and panned to the right... Boom.. I have all the local stores near me with their phone numbers and address. I called the stores and checked their inventory and wait time... Picked the one that is convenient and got my Black NL 920.

    Of course, when you tap on the address, it will give you the directions as well.
