Microsoft recently announced its new Deals service, designed to work with the Bing search engine, will work with Apple and Google smartphones but bizarrely not Windows Phone 7.
According to TotalTelecom, a Microsoft spokesman confirmed via email the Deals service isn’t currently supported by its own smartphone operating system, but it would be updated later this year to rectify the issue.
Microsoft Deals, for those who missed the announcement, is yet another service dedicated to finding offers, promotions and the like in your area, in similiar style to that of Groupon. It’s an aggregator of local and national deals, thanks to a partnership with The Dealmap.
Although iOS and Android mobile users can get involved, they can only do so through a web browser and not Bing apps.
