We will have to wait and see. As of now my crystal ball is broken
Two statements that have been bantered about are very true:
1. I'm sure Mr. Jobs, when he re-introduces the iPhone will have to stoke the fire come June. I know Apple, Inc. must have more features up their sleeve to get our juices flowing.
2. If it doesn't initially, it may be added or provided as an option later. Remember- it was touted that part of the power and beauty of this device is that is can be modify more easily, being virtually virtual, than another phone with a set number of buttons.
BTW: most 3rd party voice recognition programs that I have had experience are seriously lacking. The only one that was truly killer was when I had the 2nd generation Kyocera smartphone many moons ago. It wasn't third party either. It was part of Verizon's service- it was truly killer. Minimal training, rarely, I mean RARELY made a mistake. If Apple could get it that good, that would be a must have in itself. Believe me, if voice recognition was truly reliable (and not just for phone numbers, but for widgets, app launching, appointment recall) everyone would make use of it. It's just that they suck, and once the novelty wears away, you find it's not worth the effort of screaming at your phone. (Plus you look like you have issues.)
