WP7 Voice command should add “Siri” like intelligence

Last week, we saw a demo of speech recognition features for WP7 powered by Tellme.  The app had robust web searching capabilities providing great local results. The only problem (technically missing functionality), was that the application, as far as I know, could not stitch together two or more searches and relate them to each other, to provide a comprehensive answer to the search. A good example for such use would be when making dinner and movie plans like in the video above. Apple bought Siri, the company behind the app and I’m sure we will see that functionality on the IOS platform sooner or later. I have even come with the name for the app, “Bing Personal Assistant” (it just roll off the tounge doesn’t it?) in keeping with Microsoft’s knack for long names, so please Microsoft, make it happen?
