ZDNet is reporting that Microsoft is nearing the launch of the second edition of their Bing search engine.

Microsoft Bing was launched a couple of months ago and it has done well. Most reviews have been favourable though it has not managed to put a dent in the market share of rival search engine services.

A new updated version could arrive in the coming weeks. Sources claim that a demo could be out as early as next week.

Microsoft Bing Maps might see a major update in this edition of Bing.
