Joshua at the Boy Genius Report discovers the application that will enable voice search of your Windows Mobile device.

"A beta .cab file has leaked , giving some insight into the specifics of the application. Voice search will be enabled over Bluetooth and your handset's mic. The program allows you to search the web by way of Windows Live Search, directing your inquiries with your voice and some dictated search terms. It also allows you to enter text into just about any open field by way of voice command."
