Microsoft made available on October 30 an update to its Bing search engine for mobile browsers that includes support for high-resolution touch devices.

The new update is available at m.bing.com. Besides including touch support (for U.S. phone owners only), Microsoft also added a new National Football League (NFL) feature that allows users to see upcoming games, stats, and real-time updates (also in the U.S. only); and flight status updates (by entering the airline and flight number). Touch phone users also can access a new Bing Movies feature that allows users searching for movies in particular cities to see movies playing nearby, showtimes, overviews, trailers and video clips.

Microsoft officials mentioned the new features in a blog post today.
