Nuance Powered T-Mobile Genius Button for myTouch 4G: More Speech Control Than Android

I’ve been using the Android-powered Nexus One as my primary voice phone for the past five months. It finally gained the ability to voice dial over Bluetooth after Froyo (Android OS 2.2) became available for it. However, the Nexus One still didn’t provide all the features or voice dialing quality (accuracy) that my older HTC Touch Pro2 (Windows Mobile 6.1) did. It does not, for example, read incoming email subject lines or accurately distinguish between phone number types.

If you have one of the new T-Mobile myTouch 4G Android powered phones, Nuance’s T-Mobile Genius Button may provide some of my missing features and more.
