Google to offer iPhone app that does voice recognition

The New York Times is reporting that Google is going to allow iPhone users to Google (i.e. search) by talking to an app on the iPhone, rather than by typing in a keyword into the Google page. Voice recognition software will convert the question "How tall is Mount Everest?" into a query that Google's servers will answer. Google has made it for the iPhone but will bring it to other platforms. Don't hold your breath waiting for this to appear in the Singapore app store, but I am happy to be proven wrong.
