First Linux PDA gets speech interface
Posted: 12-Jan-2001 [Source:]

[By 2003, Linux-based systems expected to account for 9% of the handheld market.]

by Bruce A. Bennett -- "Conversay, a company that specializes in speech technology for both mobile and traditional Internet access devices, announced it will provide the speech interface for the Linux-based YOPY PDA system, making it the first Linux PDA to employ a speech interface. G.Mate, from Seoul, South Korea, and CenterComm of San Diego, CA, developed the YOPY system.

"Support of Linux was a natural step for Conversay," said Matt Scheuing, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Conversay. "Based on the number of initiatives we're encountering, Linux is the new hot platform for handhelds. We are pleased that our next-generation system will be a part of the YOPY -- this is a state-of-the-art device and nicely complements the work we've done with other platforms, such as Pocket PC."
