You can access the new Windows Live Search for Mobile beta from your phone's web browser by visiting mobile.live.com/search, or from a small client application downloadable from this page. The client is available for Windows Mobile or Java phones. Users can also get this information via SMS.
If you don’t have a data plan or a web enabled device, you can simply send a text message to 95483 (WLIVE in the U.S.) with a query like “Toys Chicago, IL” or “Coffee 90210” and you’ll immediately receive a text message reply with the nearest business listings with address and phone numbers.
With the client you are able to search for a business or other information from your mobile device, check addresses and even get directions how to get there.
You also have access to traffic information, including some detailed maps with green/amber/red routes pointing out bottlenecks in the transit system.
The service is currently available for the U.S. only.
