Desire will DEFINATELY have speech to text messaging.
I've been saying this for a while, Speech to Text is a feature of 2.1 and not a Nexus exclusive feature. The Desire's website (http://desirehtc.com/
) pretty much confirms it on the "android page".
What's that all about then?
Launched in January 2010, and known in the trade as Eclair, this is basically an update to the operating system. In laymans terms, it's a sexier looking interface. But it's not quite that simple.
Now, for example, your Wallpapers can be animated, injecting your screen with a new lease of life. This works particularly well with the AMOLED screen.
Rather excitingly, it brings us into a realm where voice-to-text is a reality in all text fields. Imagine sending texts or emails simply by talking to your phone. Now do it, we're there.
A widget offering constant weather reviews is now possible and this can be echoed with news feeds and multi-tab functions. Check this out on the HTC Desire, it's gorgeous and with GPRS functionality it's specific to your location.
Photo albums have been enhanced with a cool new 3-D view which is really slick. All the better to showcase your holiday pix.
Top this off with helicopter views of your interface and pinch to zoom capability and we think you've got a lovely little armoury of new tricks to keep you informed and amused.
