Google launches Voice Actions for Android

Google has just announced Voice Actions for Android in an attempt to one-up Microsoft’s Tellme technology. Voice Actions are are a series of spoken commands that let you control your phone using your voice. You can for example send a text message just by speaking it and the phone will automatically write it down for you. Sounds familiar right? Yup Microsoft has had this feature for a while now but thanks to poor marketing, OEMs, OS integration , whatever you want to call MS’s mobile strategy before Windows Phone 7…nobody has ever heard/used this (I’m talking about the average Joe here obviously). Voice Actions can also used to call people, listen to music etc…exactly like Voice Command on my iPad 3800 PocketPC bought in 2001. This kind of stuff makes you realise how much Redmond screwed up since then. Anyway this is good news for all the Android Users out there….if they have Android 2.2. Check out the promotional video after the break:

Dell Thunder Android handset in the wild


The Dell Thunder Android handset that was part of the gigantic leak a few months ago is apparently being tested in the wild. The Thunder is currently running Android 2.1 without any Dell customization on top and features a 4.1″ AMOLED screen according to the leak. The device is also capable of recording 720P videos with its 8Mpix camera (and LED). I’m also guessing that it packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon clocked at 1GHz. Check out the blurry video after the break:
