We're big fans of Microsoft's Live Search for Mobile around these here parts. We're not big fans of the "Live" branding. And it now appears that Microsoft may be getting ready to do something about that.

LiveSide.net [via the Seattle PI] notes that Barney Pell, a "search strategist and evangelist at Microsoft," apparently recently Tweeted (and since deleted) that Live Search will be rebranded, which we've been expecting for some time now. No official name has surfaced, though there still is "Kumo" floating around. Also no word yet how long it would take this to trickle down to the mobile side of things.

More news may surface this week at Microsoft's MVP Summit.
