Voice Recognition Via TellMe On Windows Phone 7

If you're used to voice control on your phone (*cough* as in "what the competition has" *cough*), Microsoft has integrated its TellMe service into Windows Phone 7. I've no idea how well search will work outside North America, but contact search and application launching should work pretty well. Have a look at the video for a brief overview of what you can do (Sorry it doesn't embed well.).

Microsoft's Tellme Announces 'One Button' Voice Access

"Today Tellme®, a subsidiary of Microsoft® Corp. and pioneer of voice services, announced the first mobile voice service to combine content and communications, simplifying how people interact with their phones every day. Unlike other voice-based services, Tellme is the first to allow people to press one button, say what they want and get it, whether that is to send a text, make a call or search for information. Tellme has designed a unique version of this experience specifically for Windows phones due out this fall."

Boy, Tellme sure has come a long way over the years. I've used their service over the years but they have really added a bunch of features for Windows Mobile 6.5. Many commands to give at a push of a button. To call someone, text someone, find a restaurant, check weather, movies and so on. Hopefully when it's truly implemented it will work smoothly and conveniently and people will want to use it. What do you guys think, do you plan to use it a ton or do you think it'll be an app that falls short?

Windows Mobile Shakes with Fear: Microsoft Hints at Office and Voice Recognition Applications on the iPhone and iPod touch

"The Redmond, Wash.-based software giant is already the largest software developer for Apple's Mac platform outside of the Mac maker itself, with Fortune's Big Tech blog estimating that its Mac Business Unit generates revenues in excess of $350 million and profits of over $200 million each year. Add to that the firm's expertise in its proprietary Exchange email protocols and business email systems, and it's almost a certainty that Microsoft will be among those bearing fresh wares for Apple's iPhone and iPod touch a bit later this year, Tom Gibbons, corporate vice president of Microsoft's Specialized Devices and Applications Group, told the business publication. "We do have experience with that environment, and that gives us confidence to be able to do something," he said. "The key question is, what is the value that we need to bring?" Gibbons' team of Mac developers, which actually resides in Mountain View, Calif., just a few miles from Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, is reportedly weighing its most viable options for an initial native iPhone application, which appears as if it will fall within the Office family of productivity applications."



It wasn't too long ago that Apple announced Exchange support for the iPhone and iPod touch. The implications here have yet to be seen, but come June, we'll likely see the two devices consume a reasonable chunk of Windows Mobile's market share. What about Office? It's always been one of Windows Mobile's biggest selling points. The iPhone and iPod touch lack it, but that may soon change, and if it does, it has the potential to be huge. Add in Tellme and a host of other applications and Microsoft will need to find new ways to make Windows Mobile as popular as it once was.
