Tellme Networks has announced that it will be launching a new service that enables users to quickly find information while on the go. The service functions similar to to 411, but users can request information through voice, SMS, or Mobile Web. By requesting “Business Search” at the voice prompt, the service will allow you to find businesses in a particular category and return local results based on location. The announcement comes just a week after Google announced its free 411 service, Goog-411.
To use the service through voice, simply call 1.800.555.TELL. They have offered this service using their TellMe Mobile application, but this is the first time it is completely voice controlled.
