Thomson Integrates Google Local Search into New Line of Devices


Thomson and Google have partnered to help consumers save money on 411 business information calls by integrating the first one-touch, auto-dial GOOG-411 button into many of its latest GE-branded DECT 6.0 Interference Free phones for 2008.

One of many new features for consumers from Thomson, GOOG-411 is Google's free, voice-activated, business directory assistance service, and the GOOG-411 button will be incorporated on more than a dozen GE phones, which will be available in April.

GOOG-411 is a free and completely automated service, employing speech recognition to help users find and connect to businesses from their phone. Pressing the GOOG-411 button will immediately connect DECT 6.0 users to this free Google service.
