The latest version of our popular Live Search for Windows Mobile client is out! New features include: movie showtimes, restaurant ratings, and improved GPS navigation. I just pointed my phone browser to http://wls.live.com, clicked on the download link, and the rest happened nicely on my Trio (i.e. downloaded, and installed). I was able to install this on the road yesterday in Covington,TN, and then searched for eating places, as well as retrieved map info.

While there is a desktop version, the mobile version supports Windows Mobile, BlackBerry's, and phones that can do J2ME. For unsupported phones, there is a mobile web version - for locked down situations like the iPhone.
