What started out as a great idea, ended just like many other projects.
Anyone remember the GE phone that had a GOOG-411 button built directly into it? That obviously will no longer work, that’s unfortunate.
Google is describing the GOOG-411 project as something was a stepping stone to better projects, such as Voice Search, Voice Input, and Voice Actions, revolving around their Google iPhone and Android apps.
Very sad to see this service go as it was actually something I just had my wife start using. Fortunately, Microsoft still has their free 411 service, which was renamed from Live Search 411 to BING-411.
