Microsoft unit offers BlackBerry voice app

Microsoft's Tellme subsidiary launches an application for the BlackBerry that lets people speak commands into their smart phones to search for businesses, look up movie times, check traffic and make other queries, an Associated Press report said.

Once users download the program, they can push on their phone's green 'talk' button and say either the name of a business, type of business, or the keywords 'weather,' 'movies,' 'traffic,' 'map' or 'driving directions,' the report said.
