Bing Trends Lion

We continue our series of in-depth coverage of the Bing search trends of 2013.  In this post we will look at the most searched electronic devices in the US, UK, and Canada.  When Bing first started out as Live Search it used to have a search service called xRank.  xRank kept track of notable celebrities, musicians, politicians, etc. and ranked them in order of popularity from Bing search query results. Microsoft shut that service down in 2010.  However like Google, Microsoft still publishes results of some of the most popular searches at the end of each year.  Here are the most popular electronic devices by country.
