Back in the Spring we talked about Tellme, an application from Microsoft that allows you to search for GPS locations and local business using your voice on your BlackBerry.
Many BlackBerry users, myself included, didn’t get to try Tellme when it first came out because the list of BlackBerry devices supported was fairly limited. Today, however, I received an email letting me know that the list of supported BlackBerrys has increased.
Specific details below:
- BlackBerry models now supporting the Tellme application are:
- Pearl: 8100, 8110, 8120 and 8130
- Curve: 8310, 8320 and 8330
- 8800 Series: 8800, 8820 and 8830
Search categories available today – with more to come in the months ahead are business search, traffic, driving directions, maps, weather and movies. To get started with Tellme’s BlackBerry service, users go to http://m.tellme.com and follow a few short steps to download the application to their phones.
Another application rendered useless for Verizon users by Verizon’s refusal to enable the GPS on our Blackberry phones.
Sotware is great when it works. Seems to be very buggy using 4.5 official release on AT&T. Hope to see another version in the future that will work with 4.5.
