If you have AT&T Wireless Service, here's how to access the application:

1. Dial #121
2. At the Main Menu, say Shopping or Amazon.com.
3. At the Amazon.com menu, say Search.
4. Enter the first four letters of a keyword. (You can say the letters,
but typing the keypad for each letter seems to work the best)
5. Say your keyword.
6. Choose the product category that the keyword is in, ie books, music,
dvd, etc.
7. Choose a search result by saying the search result number.
8. Hear Product Information.
9. Say Search to start over, Buy to attempt to buy the product using your
phone number and credit card number, or Similar Products to get a list of
similar products.

Amazon is offering more than All product Search:

1. Search by keyword.
2. Search by store.
3. Search by ISBN.
4. Search by a CD/Tape's barcode or UPC number.
5. Editor's Choice (A list of albums chosen by Amazon's music editors)
6. Bestsellers by store (books, music, dvd, etc.)

You can even create a PIN by visiting http://www.amazon.com/anywhere, but it isn't even necessary.

Has any other online retailer done something like this? Saw it on another mailing list, but thought it fit in with the voice web.
