ASUS CEO Jerry Shen shared with TechRadar that the Eee PC will adopt voice recognition later this year.
"Oh for sure," reiterated Asus CEO Jerry Shen, when TechRadar quizzed him further about voice-controlled computing.
"Actually, internally we have one team dedicated to studying voice recognition. Touch and gesture input is universal, whereas language is not universal.
"The first Eee PC or Eee Top products implementing voice-recognition and features will be ready by Q3/Q4 2009 – with our dedicated development team working with third parties in both Japan and the US and reporting directly to me. So this is something we will see very soon, later this year."
