Fandango, Tellme Link For Movie Information
Los Angeles-based Fandango and Tellme, Microsoft's voice directory subsidiary, said late Wednesday that the firm have launched a new service to provide movie information to mobile phone users. According to the two, the new, voice-activated movie information service will allow users to say a movie title or local theater name and see showtimes, purchase tickets, and driving directions. Financial details behind the deal were not disclosed. The new, GPS-enabled service is available for BlackBerry phones and will roll out on future versions of Helio's Mysto phones. Fandango is a unit of Comcast Interactive Media.
