Microsoft set to launch Kumo next week

Live Search replacement could be publically unveiled

Microsoft's Kumo search engine may be publically unveiled next week, says the Wall Street Journal.

Kumo, which is based on technology from Microsoft's Powerset acquisition, has been tested internally for a number of months. It is thought it will replace Microsoft's Live Search product and will be an attempt at catching up with Google in the search engine market.

It is thought the search engine will be unveiled at the 'D: All Things Digital', which takes place in San Diego next week.

Microsoft has yet respond to a request for comment.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
