Live Search will soon be moving light-years ahead with new features for Windows Mobile and Blackberry..

Live Search for Windows Mobile:

Live Search for Windows Mobile is already an award winning application that enables Windows Mobile users to find key local information when they’re on the go. It provides local business search, maps, driving directions, movie showtimes, and more, and even lets people speak their questions instead of typing. The new version is coming in Spring and provides deeper integration with Windows Mobile phones, user generated PC content, and Web search, and now offers weather forecasts. Download the service now at wls.live.com and you’ll be prompted when the new features are available.

· Map a contact: For any people in your contacts list/address book, immediately view their address on a map and get directions there.

· View Virtual Earth collections: View custom maps of locations and events that are created on the PC by you, your friends, or the broader community.

· Web search: Launch web search directly from the client to find web pages, product price comparisons and reviews, news, images, and more.

· Weather: View the latest weather conditions and the 4 day forecast.

Live Search for Blackberry:

Live Search for Blackberry will add voice input functionality in the spring. People will now be able to quickly find businesses and restaurants, get turn by turn driving directions, and view it all on interactive maps by simply speaking their request. Download the service now at wls.live.com and you’ll be prompted when voice input is available.
