Bing brings local results back in change to Windows Phone 8 app
Nokia Lumia 920 and on a friend's HTC 8X. This jives with some published reports with the same news. While local results are still showing up in the web section of Bing, swiping to the side will show you local results only.
By the way, the original premise behind merging local results with general results was for Bing to intelligently decide if you were looking for a local or general search, but apparently this didn't work out too well. From the early response, it seems that habitual Bing users are happy to have their filtered local results back.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Good. This is my Bing's favourite feature on WP :)

And, just like that it's fixed.. Listen, a lot of you need to understand how well the WP team actually listen's to us.. They do try give us what we want in terms of fixes, and updates.. While not perfect, WP devices are never left in the dark.. I guess this is the Bing team really at work to make WP better, and better.. WP really is a great experience..

For what its worth, the WP team AT THIS POINT IN TIME is very attentive. It is still apparent that WP is a growing software, but it is very stable and improves (although marginally) very frequently. This is a stark contrast to Android (I only compare with Android because it is the only other device I have used, perhaps the same applies to iOS) where you go as Google goes.
