• Microsoft Developing Live Messenger and Bing for the iPhone

    Neowin has released a report that claims Microsoft is working on two new applications for the AppStore, one being a Bing application and the other for Windows Live Messenger on the iPhone. Unfortunately the applications won't be released until March, which should time nicely with their release of Windows Live Wave 4 updates.

    "Everyone understands the popularity and the pervasiveness of the platform," said Microsoft principal group program manager David Raissipour, following a Bing event Wednesday. "We are actively working on it."
    Microsoft already has two applications in the AppStore called Tag Reader and Seadragon, so these wouldn't be the first apps microsoft has brought to the iPhone. This comes as no surprise, as it's quite clear that this point that the iPhone marketshare is much more demanding than the Windows Mobile market. Microsoft understands it needs to compete multi-platform for its web and cloud based applications if it wants to maintain and grow market share, heck they even have Blackberry apps available.

    There should be more news and screenshots even over the next week, so I'll try to keep this post updated as I receive more news. Stay tuned!
