(with more app integration to come) Live Tile traffic notification is ingenious. If MS truly invests & expands this service, there will be no need for Gmaps on the platform. I realize there is massive ground to cover to replace the behemoth, Here Maps will more than suffice for now. It is definitely a different direction in functionality mapping that I look forward to seeing further develop in the future. Comprehensive information from the Bing blog here:
