It's been a little while since we've heard anything out of the Bing camp. Since Microsoft's search engine dropped the Live Search name, we've only seen a rebranding of the mobile app, and a possible hint of more substantial change.

Now we have something more official, and word that an update to the Bing app is due this fall:

Congratulations to our friends over in Windows Mobile for the launch of Windows Mobile 6.5 today! It’s an exciting time for mobile and for Bing. With today’s announcement we are kicking off what we like to call the Autumn of Mobile!

This week in New York we were able to share a sneak peek of the Bing for mobile application due out later this Fall. In case you missed it, here’s a screenshot of what’s to come. The Bing app continues to be a great tool for local searches, maps, and directions, and now it has a whole new look.

Judging by the screen shot, the new app looks to be, bingeriffic. (Ducks!)
