Oliver at MobileCrunch and Mike at TC got to test out the latest version of TellMe, a voice-enabled search service that lets you tell a robot what you’re looking for. The robot then sends you a map, if necessary, and lets you call the locaation or SMS directions to friends.
TellMe requires a tiny standalone app for the mapping and it seems to be free right now, so it’s a considerable improvement over paying $5 for 411 from your carrier. Let’s pray that it works better than the standard “Hmmm… I’m not sure I understood what you mean. Can you repeat that?” robots we deal with on a daily basis.
