    NEW: Voice recognition to send messages via BlackBerry

    Advertisement



    Zee Tawasha is an unabashed BlackBerry addict, constantly sending urgent e-mails to employees at 30 mobile phone stores he owns across California, Arizona and Nevada.

    Until recently, he used his fingers to painstakingly type out messages on the wireless device's cramped keyboard. But with a new service launched by his network provider Sprint Nextel on Friday, Tawasha can press a button and say the recipient's name and dictate a message of up to 20 words into his BlackBerry's receiver. Within about a minute, the full message appears on the screen and he can send it off with one keystroke.

    The technology was developed by privately held MobileVoiceControl, one of a number of companies developing voice control systems as consumers increasingly use mobile devices to surf the Web, shop and download ring tones. -- Read More

    charlotte227, Welcome to PinStack.

    From what I read in the announcement, currently only Sprint/Nextel offers this service, but the company expects other carriers to get on board by the end of the year. I guess we will see.

    Again welcome

    Lets not mistake Mobile Voice Control with NextMail. NextMail is what has been available to Nextel for quite some time. Nextmail can only send an email using the walkie-talkie button, and record your voice as well. Mobile Voice Control has many, many, many features. Mobile Voice Control is only available on Sprint BlackBerry and Treo phones. NextMail only works on Nextel phones.
