Hutch teams up with Microsoft to launch mobile search service

Telecom service provider Hutch has partnered with Microsoft to launch mobile search facility for its GPRS users in Delhi.

Using Live Search, Hutch users can now search for everything they need to know about the city on their Hutch phones, a joint press release said.

The other cities where this service is already available are Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Pune, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad.

The click-to-call service would also allow users to make calls by just clicking on the numbers thrown up by their search results, it added.

“This is just one of the many services that MSN India and Windows Live will be bringing to users along with Hutch. We will soon be offering local search capability to other cities,” Microsoft Online Services Group Country Manager Jaspreet Bindra said.
