Lost BlackBerry users will soon be able to say "show me the way" to their devices thanks to Microsoft's plans to enrich Live Search for Windows Mobile.
Microsoft already offers voice input for Windows Mobile users, and soon BlackBerry users will be able to speak commands to find businesses on Live Search and get driving directions with results displayed on interactive maps.
For Windows Mobile, Microsoft is adding the ability to view the address for contacts on a map and get directions and to view custom maps of locations and events created by you or others on a PC. Users also will be able to launch Web search directly from the client to find Web pages, product comparisons, and other information. In addition, Windows Mobile users will be able to view weather conditions and a four-day forecast.
It's unclear when the BlackBerry update will be available. The Windows Mobile updates will be out this spring.
