Yahoo! Adds Features to oneSearch Shortcut, Including Voice Search and Auto-Locate

Yahoo! has updated the oneSearch Shortcut with three new features. Voice search, auto-locate and improved Search Assist (for Blackberry) have been added and now oneSearch Shortcut is available for the Windows Mobile Client.

The auto-locate feature uses cell tower triangulation and wifi to determine a user's location. The improved Search Assist incorporates search history for Blackberry users.

Yahoo's oneSearch Shortcut was launched last August, initially just on Nokia devices. Last April, Yahoo overhauled oneSearch itself, Yahoo's mobile platform.
