    Bing Local Search Looks Awesome

    I like the idea that I can search for restaurants near me with a push of button and have them display on a map. Great feature.

    I haven't used Places. Basically, he tapped on the search button, typed Thai food and it showed a map of places. Swipe to the right and you can view in a list format. Swipe one more time and you enter a web search. Pretty intuitive and I like the speed of essentially searching by pushing a soft button on the front of the phone.

    I'll have to check out Places on my N1.

    I saw in the phone dog video, that bing turn by turn is IN THE OS, not to be taken out. I guess Verizon will hate that with vz navigator.

    I am sure they will load VZ Navigator on it anways, mostly because they think they can sucker people in to paying $10 a month for it!
