Voice-recognition in cars
Delphi Automotive Systems Corp. and Palm announced an agreement that would put portable voice-recognition systems in cars that would allow drivers to access their Palm devices.
The special cradle would fit in a cupholder and plug into a standard cigarette lighter. From the Reuters story:
Drivers will be able to use the device to send and retrieve information from their Palm handheld devices on a hands-free basis.
Price has not yet been set and a Handspring Visor edition has not been announced at this time. The Palm edition will be available in retail stores in the fourth quarter.
The system will also be coordinated to allow customers of the Palm.Net service to access news, weather, sports, financial information, e-mail and the Internet.
