Google translate on way to smartphones
Google has announced their intention to bring real time translation to your smartphone during phone calls.
This could really impact on the need to learn another language, with the phone doing it all for you then there isnt going to be the need to know it yourself.
It is based on Google’s existing software which automatically converts documents into a different language, this would use voice recognition in order to translate real time speech. This amazing technology could be with us in just a couple of years.
Probably best known for its Internet search engine, Google launched its first mobile phone last month the Google Nexus One, the Nexus One was intended to be a rival for Apple’s iPhone, it already has voice recognition but combining this with automatic translation promises to be something that will be truly amazing.
