We know Microsoft and TellMe (who Microsoft bought) worked close together on the Samsung Intrepid (awful phone, neat service), but nothing else ever came out from it.
We also know Windows Phone 7 will have some type of voice control (see Dieter hilariously try to activate it back in February) and low and behold, Microsoft has recently demoed it for it us.
- Voice dialing
- Voice search
- Voice launch of programs
The bad--no voice control for:
- Playing music
- Announcing calls
At least we presume those 'bads' are the case as we don't have 100% confirmation either way yet. Even with the limitations, we like the speed and execution of the voice search feature and can't wait to try it ourselves.
