Voice Command is one of those core features of Windows Mobile that's great to have, but it never has been quite easy enough to be a daily necessity for a lot folks. That all may be about to change with Tellme, which Microsoft bought a couple of years ago. It takes the versatility of Voice Command, sexes it up and puts it at the center of your user experience.
And it's coming to Windows Mobile 6.5, says Gizmodo.
Our Crackberry friends have had access to Tellme for a while now (as have owners of the Sprint Instinct). But starting with WM6.5, we'll have one-button access to phone dialing, text messages, Live Search, the works, and it'll be an integral part of the OS, it seems. (If it can do voice to text, that would be epic.) CNet notes that Tellme will take advantage of GPS and cell towers to localize searches.
Giz says Tellme will be free when Windows Mobile 6.5 launches, either from the Marketplace, or it'll be built in to the OS.
