Yep, fussy bugger all right, can you remember what mobiles
used to be
like.

What if Apple made a phone that looked like an apple? where
would you
keep that?

Might be a hit with the ladies.

Cheers

Dave

Now, A nano sized I-phone would be ok, although I still
don't like the
slimness.  Fussy bugger, or what?

One of the best things I like about my N86 is that it has
the K-NFB
reader.
Would it work on an I-phone or is there a similarly accurate
ap?

Cheers

Barry

Barry are you aware that a Nano sized iPhone is rumoured to
launch later
this year.

Only if it has a good vibrate alert.

Seriously, if there was a better shaped I-phone, I'd
consider it.

Park it in the pouch just inside your trouser/Jeans middle
pocket, big
boy.

Aside from the steep learning curve for touch screens, for
me, it's a
matter of aesthetics.  I don't like the shape of the
I-phone. Yes, it's
thin, but it's not exactly pocket sized.  I keep my mobile
in my
trouser/jeans pocket, but the I-phone just won't sit
comfortably there.

Cheers

Barry

Hal a loo ya, my god I think he's got it, and you don't need
to spend
any more on speech software, as it is built in, and updates
are free.

Now to burn those Freedom Scientologists, along with those
greedy
bankers.

Cheers

Dave

Oh dear.  It does seem like Apple is the only viable option.
Is there
any access with the Android system? 

Cheers

Barry

But I'd rather presumed that MobileSpeak was also dead in
the water
because it works on Windows, and, as discussed, the new
Windows Mobile 7
operating system is inaccessible. I understood that
MobileSpeak were
working on other income streams to stay afloat. These were
just rumours
but they seem to make sense unless a big access solution is
pending very
soon with Windows. 

What is the future for Talks? 

I note that Nuance has created some kind of app that works
on the
iPhone. I think it's just provision of speech synthesis.

Perhaps we could switch to Mobilespeak?  Yes, it means that
any of our
investment in Talks is going to go to waste, and also means
that we have
to pay for another speech software system, but it's an
option.

Nokia have today announced that they are partnering with
MicroSoft and
will be using the Microsoft Windows Mobile 7 operating
system which is
presently inaccessible. 

The noise suggests that the Symbian operating system, which
Talks runs
on, will be sidelined. 

So, by extension, does this mean that Talks is now dead in
the water? 

I speak as a long time Talks user who would be a bit
disappointed if so.


Is Apple iPhone the only choice left now?
