So with the release of Windows 8 to release to manufacturers or RTM, we are getting a look at the final version. One of the first apps is the official Bing search application for Windows 8. The first image below is an image of the application, but the next images are also images of a Bing application; I found them as part of a presentation by Surya Vanka at the Faculty Summit held by Microsoft Research. One of the images is dated 2011, so I don’t know if this was an early concept, future concept, or its connection to the new Bing app on the RTM now. My theory is that it is. The new Bing app looks nice, but I’d love to see this design be put in their somewhere.
