Voice-Enabled Local Search Launched For Sprint

Sprint (NYSE: S) has launched A voice-enabled local search service has launched. Sprint users can download the FreeMobile411 application, which lets them hold down the talk key and speak what they are looking for — the results show up on the screen. The service has address listings, maps, driving directions and the ability to browse by category, with revenue coming from sponsored links. The service is by V-Enable and functions identically to the text-input Mobile411 service already on Alltel (NYSE: AT) and MetroPCS, and the WAP site which was launched a week ago.
Update: Sprint is not affiliated with this release, it is a purely 3rd party application.
