Microsoft announced an update for its Bing for Mobile BlackBerry app. The app can now access Bing Maps by pressing the Bing Maps icon from a user’s BlackBerry device. 
In addition to this, the home screen has been updated, and a launcher has been added, so local, maps, directions and news can all be accessed faster.
