Bing Indoor Maps demoed on Windows Phone 7

Pocketnow have published this video showing a new Bing Maps feature – indoor maps.

The service is designed for large location such as airports, shopping malls and convention centres, and in the above demo provides the lay-out of Times Square in New York.  Users will be able see multiple levels,  search for stores and even see their reviews.

Of course the service will be most useful if it could also find directions, and Nokia has recently shown of an indoor navigation system that would allow just that.

Microsoft has also recently announced it has mapped 148 malls, including the 9 biggest malls in USA, so hopefully the technology will come to a location close to our readers soon.
