Voice input and gas prices in Live Search for Windows Mobile
Live Search has been a hit with Windows Mobile enthusiasts for awhile now. It's a great way to get local search, mapping and navigation. You can now speak your query instead of typing it! Just press the lower left soft-key and say what you want, for example, "Anthony's Pizza" or "Hardware Stores". Live Search uses voice recognition technology to understand what you're asking for and gives you results.
Beta Live Search for BlackBerry devices
Today MSN have released a beta version of Live Search for people with BlackBerry devices. It runs on BlackBerry version 4.0.2 and higher and provides the main benefits of Live Search in an experience custom-designed for the BlackBerry.
Improved mapping and directions
Live Search's browser based mobile search at m.live.com and its available on any mobile phone with Internet access and searches the broadest types of information-including websites, images, and news, as well as local businesses, maps, directions, and more.
There have been a number of improvements to it-especially in mapping and navigation.New map styles throughout this product that make the maps even more readable on small screens. Directions now also take into account current traffic conditions-and if traffic is especially bad you can choose to have the system reroute you to avoid traffic backups.
