Google Maps update - with Voice Search

Written by Vasco Miguel on . Posted in Industry News

Read more: Google Maps update - with Voice SearchGoogle Maps for Windows Mobile just got updated to version 4.1.0. This version includes now the capability to perform voice activated searches. Just need to press Talk button and say what you're looking.

But not everything is great... for now, it only recognizes English, including several accents as Australian, Indian, British, etc, and Mandarim. In my personal case, in Portugal, if I ask for "restaurantes" it searches for "chris nolan". But if I say "restaurants", all is well.

In case you're wondering: "Falar agora" means "Speak now".

Read more: Hands-On: Nvidia and the Mighty GTX 480 3D graphics. What is this phenomena all about? James Cameron’s Avatar made record earnings from its seamless integration of 3D technology in the realm of film, but what does this imply for the world of gaming?


Nvidia already seems to know that 3D gaming will be the next revolution in interactive entertainment and they’ve jumped on board full steam with their newest product, the GTX 480 graphics card and its “little brother,” the GTX 470. Technical specs are almost unimportant for this monster, rendering graphics and benchmarks at about double the quality of prior Nvidia chipsets.
