Its actually kinda cool. That camera even more so lol

Speech recognition in offline = death so Siri, since the response on Siri is not instant due to network speed. :D
19. biophone (Posts: 1923; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
That never seems to be a problem on siri when I use it.
21. ilia1986 (unregistered)
Well there is a delay for several seconds due to the need to connect to the Apple server.
Not here! :D

Its really fluid. I wouldn't call death to siri just yet till we here about majel

Project Butter = new BOSS of mobile OS's
at this point its a "no brainer" who's the best or more advanced...
if you like iOS nothing is wrong with that... but trying to compare it to android just aint a fair argument anymore...lol
Damn Google stepped their game up! lol
29. good2great (Posts: 1042; Member since: 22 Feb 2012)
yes i DO say so... its a change of guard in a sense... like Magic Johnson handing the basketball crown to Michael Jordan...
iOS will always be legendary... but at this point in the game android has surpassed it... and now that its OS will be a much smoother and optimized experience it kinda kills the "lag" argument...
not saying its worth selling an iphone/ipad to switch over but you have to recognize that this young OS is leading the pack...
i have no problems giving it props just by seeing what jelly bean is offering...

Mad props to jellybean its a great OS I hope all android users enjoy it fully.
This is more of a Lebron and Durant situation. The two best dueling it out each trying to one up each other.

Google just announced more innovation in these 20 minutes than Apple did in the entire WWDC 2012! :D
26. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
the new voice improvements are quick, accurate, and sound much better.
try that on Siri. :)
27. biophone (Posts: 1923; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
Nothing blow away as siri is already all those things but its a worthy competitor.
30. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
lol, really.. studies prove otherwise. google voice is already more accurate and does more. it just doesnt sound as nice.
i think you need to actually watch the video on the majel demonstration they just did before making blind comments. :)
34. biophone (Posts: 1923; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
I am live streaming as well but I use siri all the time and only once did it not work right. It has always been smooth, accurate, and fast. Android seems to be similarly smooth, accurate, and fast but I will have to wait and see till I use it myself :).
31. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
this just shows how far advanced android has become vs iOS. comparing what i've seen in 20 mins vs all of iOS6.. its a huge difference.
600k apps and 30 billion downloads. What was apple just celebrating a month or so ago as far as DLs? I forgot.
32. good2great (Posts: 1042; Member since: 22 Feb 2012)
its time for iOS users to at least acknowledge the advancement of android and what its now offering with the newest technology.
i'm impressed. there's really no comparison anymore man...
the only thing thats left is the "quality" of the apps...
like i said before its no android vs iOS anymore... windows and android will duke it out... iOS will continue to upgrade/update as needed... it'll continue to be perfectly polished and function world class... but as far as keeping up with new features after new features thats not apples game anymore...
just my opinion...

Esta fue una de las mejores Conferencias que he visto en mi vida. No son como las supuestas "200 nuveas herraminetas" como la bestalidad de Apple. Google manda.
TRANSLATE: This is one of the best comferences ive seen in my whole life. not like the "200 new features" like apple"s bestiallity. Google rules!
