Google Search now supports voice input

It's about time, isn't it? Google Search now supports voice input. Speak your queries in English, Mandarin, or Japanese.  I wonder why they picked those 3 languages. What about Spanish?

Which smartphones support Google Search by Voice? Here's the list:
  • Android (of course!)    
  • BlackBerry      
  • iPhone      
  • Nokia S60 (Symbian)    
  • Windows Mobile
If you're still using the antiquated Windows Mobile, you may want to try Bing which also includes voice search. The voice recognition engine isn't very robust, but who's complaining since this is a free app? I wonder how Google's voice recognition compares with Bing's.

You can get Google Mobile apps by typing: into your mobile web browser.  You can also learn more about Google Mobile apps by visiting:
