Unveiled yesterday was their voice-enabled search function for mobile phones, OneSearch 2.0, created in partnership with voice-recognition firm Vlingo. It’s been in existence since early 2007, with 29 mobile network carriers offering the service.

Simply by speaking into your mobile handset, your online searching will be performed quicker than you’re accustomed to, particularly when you’re on the move. Currently only available to the US market, OneSearch 2.0 is free to download.
