Microsoft launches voice-activated search

17 Comments

TellMeNot to be out-done by Yahoo’s oneSearch, Microsoft announced Tellme for your BlackBerry. Not only does it recognize voice commands like “weather”, “movies”, “traffic” and “map”, as well as search for any company name, but the app also takes into account your GPS coordinates to further narrow down search results. It’s odd that the BlackBerry version came out before Windows Mobile, but you’ll hardly hear us complaining. You can check it out at www.tellme.com.

    I installed the app. I keep on getting “connection lost” when I launch it.

    After going through their site and seeing that they support the Curve, I decided to give it a go. I immediately received the sms message with the invite. Upon clicking on the link, I was told that they dont support the Curve.

    What gives?

    Somewhat frustrating that the website promotes “now for Blackberry” but when I tried to install this there was a friendly message “thank you for your interest in Tellme. Sorry but your phone is not supported yet.” Maybe they should revise this “now for Blackberry World Edition and you are in the United States of America”
