Samsung Speech-To-Text Phones
Samsung has just announced two new mobile phones that can convert spoken words into text messages. The speech-to-text is called VoiceMode and works alongside something called QuickPhrase which lets you send pre-programmed messages like "I'm running late" just by speaking the words (I'm assuming the process needs no manual input at all, to differentiate it from VoiceMode).
These phones look as big as models with full alpha keyboards, but judging from the size of the screens probably have impressive camera/video capabilities. And you can text while driving without being a menace on the highway.
I hope Samsung brought these to CES; I'd like to see how accurate the voice recognition is.
