WP7 and using hardware search from IE

Kudos to my friend Kristofer who just hinted me about a nice feature that I didn’t know of.

  1. Browse to a page in IE
  2. Tap on any word to mark/highlight the word
  3. Hit the Hardware Search button on the phone

You will now search for the highlighted word(s) using Bing. It’s all these tiny features that makes the WP7 phone so cool. Although have no idea if this is something that only works with the NoDo update or not since I didn’t try this before the update.
