Samsung is introducing the availability p207, the first EDGE phone with VoiceMode provided by VoiceSignal. Using speech-to-text input technology, the p207 offers users the flexibility to dictate text messages, alleviating the hassle of inputting text with numerous key taps on a small keypad.

Packaged in a fashionable black casing, the p207 offers a practical text-input method, relevant for a variety of consumers. When typing text messages becomes time-consuming and labor intensive, the p207's VoiceMode integrates easy dictation to speed up the process.

With a built-in dictionary, the user trains the p207 through a series of spoken prompts that captures voice tone and intonation. After the user adapts the system, they are ready to begin dictating messages. The more frequently VoiceMode is used, the more it adapts to the user's voice. In addition, the user can eliminate time-consuming steps when addressing the message by dictating the recipient by name or number.

The phone also includes a speaker independent message addressing, name dialing, name lookup, digit dialing, check status and application launch commands, EDGE high-speed network, integrated VGA camera/camcorder, MP3 ringtones and MMS.
