Samsung Electronics is releasing the SGH-E620 Bluetooth voice recognition phone into the European market. The SGH-E620 can make calls using one's voice via a Bluetooth headset.
The software places a call to the person whose name has been stated into the Bluetooth headset, by automatically searching the phone book of the mobile phone.
Samsung says the SGH-E620 Bluetooth voice recognition phone is much easier to use than other models which need to be placed close to the user's mouth and its capacity for voice recognition has been greatly enhanced. And because of the Bluetooth wireless headset, calls can be made with the mobile phone left untouched inside a user's bag or pocket, making it even more convenient.
A "speaker-independent voice recognition" technology has been adopted in the SGH-E620, which does not limit voice recognition to voice type. The phone supports 5 languages: English, French, Spanish, German and Italian.
In addition to the Bluetooth functionality, SGH-E620 has a refined antenna design and comes equipped with a 1-megapixel camera, video wallpaper, silver nano anti-bacterial coating, speaker phone and 64 polyphonic ringtones, among others.
One of features is the video wallpaper, which displays moving pictures for 10-30 seconds every time the mobile phone is switched over to stand-by mode. Another notable aspect to the SGH-E620 is that it is the first product released in the European market that has adopted silver nano anti-bacterial coating.
"Samsung Electronics is planning to expand the range of languages supported by the Bluetooth voice recognition technology, that is, to cover Chinese and Russian, and certainly Korean for release into the Korean market," a Samsung official said.
Samsung says that it will eventually lead the global Bluetooth market "... by further strengthening the Bluetooth technology so that Samsung mobile phones become even more competitive."
