One of the more recent addition to the Ovi Store is the Bing widget.

Bing is a new search engine by Microsoft. It has similar features to Google like Web search, image search, video search, news search etc.

The widget, which is now available for FREE download on OVI Store is compatible with S60v3 & S60v5 devices. You can get it by pointing your PC or phone browser to http://store.ovi.com.

Here’s a screenshot of the Bing widget on Nokia N96. As you can see, search results are categorised in tabs.

The widget looks and works the same on the touch version of S60 devices like 5800 & N97.

Get the Bing widget for your phone now!

Was waiting for Fring to come out with a version that supports the 5800 when I found the original MSN app produced by Microsoft itself made for S60 5th Edition on China’s Mobile MSN website.

It looks exactly like the MSN we use on our PCs… with nudge, send file, smilies and handwriting feature.

Very stable app I’d say. Fullscreen MSN rocks! I have never used such great MSN app on any previous S60 phones before so I rate this one 9/10. Haha.

Do check out this app for S60v5… means 5800 now and soon, the N97.

Also, join Malaysia’s 5800XPM Facebook Group too if you own one.. or planning to own one.
