Sprint Users Get Cool Live Search App

Engadget writes that owners of high-end Sprint phones will be getting a sweet-looking Windows Live Search application. The rich client will allow voice-powered mobile search, letting you speak into your phone to run searches, and using cell tower triangulation to determine your location without the need for a GPS and showing you nearby results without asking you where you are.

The app is Java-powered, so while it isn’t for Windows Mobile, someone could probably find a way to run it on non-Sprint phones, though it may rely far too much on the hardware to work anywhere else. It also utilizes TellMe’s technology on the voice recognition. Check out Search Engine Land for screenshots.
