Ayer says he's excited for a phone release and gets thumbed down. Apple article full of pathetic trolls as usual.

Apple will have the last laugh

To be honest with you guys, I've NEVER been a fan of voice recognition. I always make fun of my friends by yelling or making a sound when they try and use it...

The only benefit I can see is, "CALL JOHN CELL" while using a hands free when driving... Which iPhone already has. Other than that... Meh.

The HEADLINE should say "Apple trying to be like Android, AGAIN". Everything Apple is doing is what Android has already done or accomplished. LOL!!!! Android should sue Apple for mind reading. LOL!

Sometimes true, and when true, Apple's version is usually more mature and polished.

Android only registers basic voice commands and some speech to text. Stuff that was accomplished way before Android. If the rumors hold true about Apple's system, it's going to blow away your Android out of the water.

Umm

iOS 4 HAS voice recognition. And it works quite well. I am not talking of course about the standard Voice Control - but rather the Voice Activator - a very useful Cydia tweak if your primary language is English. You can program voice commands to do a lot of stuff. And it sure as hell doesn't require better hardware.

Oh wait - could this new "Voice Assistant" thing - which of course will be exclusive to the new iPhone - be just another RIP-OFF of another Cydia tweak? LOL.

which would be a rip off fo a now long standing android feature? :) ive been using voice phone navigation for a while now. :) on android u control everything in the phone by voice if you like. Now with ICS having facial recognition supposedly, i dont see how iOS getting voice is "revolutionary".. just more android rip offs playing catch up. iOS6 will have face recognition and they will have "invented it" then :)

Voice recognition software will always carry the same problem no matter how good or what device it is on.....the user. I have listened to some people up close and still can't understand what their saying, and what about accents. While I do use mine on (very) limited basis, it is a cool tool to have welcome to the party ifans, too bad it's time everyone else is heading home....LOL

My windows phone 7.5 (Mango) already does this. I've got completely hands free texting and many other voice commands. I don't mumble so there isn't a problem.

My browser has beat every iPhone 4 that I've raced in my office. The look on their faces was priceless. All they could say was, "I need to go update my software and then I'll be back.". That of course made me chuckle. I'm 6-0 in this.

I'm assuming for scientific purposes that you and the other 6 people in your office all are on the same network, otherwise maybe it's not the browser but the signal strength.

i also like windows phone but really has nothing to do with this comment section. It is weird though because internet explorer mobile has always been in the past one of the slowest browsers.

Well, there were phones prior to the iPhone correct? We all know what they looked like and what the user experience was. The same is true here - the technology was developed long time ago, but more important is the implementation ...

they did implement in 2005 on SGH-E620.

my iphone has voice reckognition right now but it just sucks and is limited. From what i read its really hard to come up a with good reliably voice-recognition. Takes time and money. Apple just didnt really seem to think it was as important i guess untill android came out and saw how well it workrd and how usefull it is.
