While the focus has shifted to Windows Phone 7, Microsoft has updated their Bing app for the 6.x series of Windows Phones.

The first screen of the app now looks a lot like the iPhone Bing app. It fetches the Bing background and quick access to search categories. Voice commands have been added as well. Screenshot:
