"Windows Mobile-powered Pocket PC devices enabled with VoiceDial 2.0 allow users with Bluetooth headsets to push one button on the headset to initiate the VoiceDial software, eliminating the need to punch any buttons on the phone itself. Users may access phone contacts or dial phone numbers by digit. Not only does Fonix software make using a mobile phone more convenient, but it also makes it safer to use a phone in the car."
Fonix VoiceDial 2.0 is available for Pocket PC Phone Edition devices running Windows Mobile 5.0, like the new:
* i-mate JASJAR

"Users love these new devices because they have so many features and functionalities," said Walt Nawrocki, senior VP and GM, The Fonix Speech Group. "However, their bulkiness relative to regular mobile phones make them a bit inconvenient to use as a phone. VoiceDial improves functionality and ease of use and eliminates the need to hold the device. Now users can leave the device in a briefcase, purse, and backpack or on a desk and still make calls. Fonix speech interface software makes communication easier and easier." About Fonix VoiceDial(TM)
