Microsoft releases Bing Chinese-English Dictionary
Microsoft has added Bing Dictionary to the Windows Phone Marketplace. This app supports both local and online dictionary look up. It is targeted toward a Chinese speaking audience, but the UI can also be switched to English.

Some of the features include:

•    Local/Online dictionary: Local dictionary contains 100,000 most-frequently-used English and Chinese words. Online dictionary provides more words, sentences and voice.  
•    Smart Index: Creative Smart Index matches incomplete words and their inflections. Quick-definition is also provided for convenience. Try to input ”better”?  
•    Click-to-Lookup: Don’t like keyboard on phone? Try two clicks to start a new search: first click a word in definitions or sentences, then click the search button.   
•    Search Suggestion: uncertain of spelling? Online dictionary provides search candidates of similar spelling or pronunciation to your input. 
•    Machine Translate: online dictionary mode supports machine translation. Input a long sentence to try the latest Microsoft translation engine between Chinese and English.   
•    Themes and Fonts: UI themes, Chinese or English user interface, and different font sizes for comfortable reading experience.  
•    Search history: save your history for recent queries, easily review and traffic-saving.

While the app has only been out for a little over a week, it already boasts a 4.5 star rating. Bing Dictionary can be downloaded from the Windows Phone Marketplace for free right now.
