Tellme Networks Inc., a provider of computerized, voice-driven directory assistance, launched a new mobile search service on Tuesday that allows users to ask for information and see the results pop up with maps and directions on the phone's screen.
Tellme, which agreed to be acquired by Microsoft Corp. last month, said the free service will be supported by advertising.
The formal launch by Tellme follows months of testing and comes on the heels of an announcement by computer Web search leader Google Inc. to set up an experiment using speech recognition on telephones.
