Tellme adds sports scores to its voice powered search service

Tellme is a free, Microsoft-owned voice powered search engine. Want to find a local coffee shop? Call up Tellme and ask for it. Want to know the weather forecast? Boot up the free BlackBerry application, hit a button, and say “Weather”.

In addition to local business searches, weather forecasts, movie times, and directions, TellMe has now added support for up-to-the-minute sports scores to the BlackBerry application.. Need to know how Kobe’s doing tonight? Hit up TellMe, and say “sports” and then “Lakers” – it’ll show up right on screen. Sure, sports scores tend to be what the search engines add once the idea well starts running dry – but it’s free, and it might just get you your sports fix when you’re stuck at dinner with the in-laws.
