Sprint and Microsoft team up to bring customers enhanced Mobile Search

mobile phoneSprint and Microsoft have teamed up to bring users what they call "the industry's first fully integrated GPS location-aware mobile search service."

The service which launches today is available on Sprint phones and allows users to use one search box to search the web, local listings, and maps at the same time as well as use their cell phones GPS to quickly find local businesses without having to manually input their location. So next time you're on vacation you don't have to know where you are to find out where the nearest Starbucks is or where you can score a piece of pizza. One neat aspect of the new service is voice search which allows users to search by saying a business name and then have their search results show up on the screen.

Sprint's enhanced mobile search is available now on most data-enabled Sprint phones at no additional cost for data subscribers. The voice search feature is available for users on select handsets as a free download.
