Default Windows Live Search Bug/Feature found!!!

Please Login to Remove!

I am not sure if this has been reported but here it is. I practically live by Windows Live Search, for phone numbers, for movie times, for weather, driving directions everything. I love that app. I have a Curve 8330. A buddy at work just got a ATT Pearl 8120. I downloaded the app for him.

According to the live search mobile website, there is an option to speak your search term rather than type it. It also states that that option is only for Windows Mobile devices.

Well sure enough my buddy's Pearl has and can use the SPeak function, and mine does not. We have the same exact build. I even re-downloaded my app since I had it on there for a while.

Any idea's. I already tried to get the windows mobile version, but it cannto load on a bb, so thats not it.

I believe this was discovered to be a GSM feature... and doesn't work on CDMA devices.
Not sure if it's a bug, or functional limitation of CDMA devices/OS.
