Microsoft has high hopes that a new speech-recognition application for the forthcoming Windows Mobile operating system will be attractive enough to draw people to the phone platform. Microsoft planned to announce a new service that will work on Windows Mobile 6.5 devices and will let Windows Phone users speak into the phone to search the Internet, make phone calls and dictate text messages. 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. The new service puts many of the most popular phone functions behind a single button.
