Do you include the reference to Bing maps? http://dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?v=6.2, this is the reference that i used in my webpart, you will add it to the page, user control, if you not include the reference you can't work with bing.

Sorry, I saw your reference after sent the email :). Can you try to put your site in the "security site" in your Internet Explore"? Why do you do a small test? creating a page and when the test work fine, you can move it to SharePoint 2010.
