Vlingo raises $20M in Second Round of Funding led by Yahoo - Cambridge, MA

Vlingo, a Cambridge-based provider of technology that supports voice-activated access to mobile phone wireless data services, announced that it has raised $20 million in its second round of venture capital, led by Yahoo. As part of the deal, Yahoo announced that it has launched a voice-enabled version of Yahoo! oneSearch, a new mobile search client that supports "unstructured, open-ended" voice searches, allowing consumers to speak their query. Vlingo was founded in 2006. The company launched a beta version of its voice-powered interface last August.
