News: Microsoft Launches Voice Recognition for the Pocket PC

 Microsoft has launched new voice recognition and control software to allow mobile phone and handheld computer users to control most functions of their phones without fiddling with tiny controls. Microsoft Voice Command, Reuters reports, will be sold as a $40 add-on for the Windows Mobile Pocket PC software for PDAs and mobile phones, allowing users to call up a contact on a device by simply asking for a person’s name. It will also launch applications, control phone functions and look up and read back calendar appointments.
