Samsung SCH-i600 incorporates voice dialing technology
The Samsung SCH-i600 is shipping with Voice Signal's Voice Activated Phonebook (VAP) software and application launching feature. The VAP software automatically voice-activates the user's phonebook, letting users dial or look up information by saying a name, with no need to "train" the name beforehand. In addition, the digit-dialing feature allows users to dial any number simply by saying the digits naturally. Also, users will be able to launch any application on the phone using voice. For example, a user can check appointments simply by saying, "Open Calendar". Voice Signal's application includes interactive voice prompts and text-to-speech (TTS) for ease-of-use and hands-free, eyes-free operation.

"With the release of our Voice-Activated Phonebook for the i600, Voice Signal continues to lead the market for embedded speech solutions on mobile devices," said Voice Signal CEO Rich Geruson. "We are excited to be working with Samsung to introduce embedded speech solutions for voice dialing on the first product to use Microsoft's Windows Mobile for Smartphone platform."

Consumers will find the i600 easy to use with advanced voice recognition from Voice Signal for voice activated phone book, digit dial and menu commands. Product is available through Verizon Wireless' nationwide retail network for US$399 after rebate.
