Default Bing Maps

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I've noticed some newer apps Trapster / Yelp - are using Bing map integration instead of Google Maps. I can't seem to find any examples or information on integrating Bing/Blackberry. Honestly I can't really understand what Bing offers (maybe I was looking at the wrong documentation).

Any guidance would be great.

Probably an HTTP interface into the WEB-based map server.

In case anyone else finds there way to this thread, I got some good information from this post on the Bing Forums.

Newbie Question

It seems that as of now, Bing has much better options for building maps into a Blackberry App than Google Maps.
