Bing has had a busy few months
, but if recent rumors hold any weight, a facelift may be just around the corner
. Mary-Jo Foley over at ZDNet caught wind of a few Tweets that came from Microsoft's annual company meeting, which are hinting that Redmond may roll out "Bing 2.0" this fall -- and possibly as early as next week.
The Tweets quoted by Foley indicate that attendees of Microsoft's gathering have seen a demo of Bing 2.0. While none of the micro-blog posts offered a clear image of what's to come, most imply that some major changes are afoot. One Tweeter said, "Bing 2.0, out this month, has some exciting new features
. Imagine seeing maps plus pics from the neighborhood of a restaurant to try."
Another backed the map additions with "BING 2.0 terrific !! watch out guys ! bing + silverlight in maps = amazing!!
goodbye google," and one Tweet claimed the update would be rolled out next week
. Microsoft declined to offer any worthwhile details when questioned by Foley.
