I also don't get why a device needs to 'tell' you how much battery it has left, as surely the more you ask the less battery you'll have!!!! Oh well!!!!
Comes in super handy when the phone is in your pocket and you're driving. With MS Voice Command for example..
I can listen to which missed calls I had, call them back or call a contact or dial a new number without touching the phone. I can start an application, play music (ff,rw,pause that),check signal strength,etc again all by naturally speaking.
Maybe I'm just lazy but this is something I would expect in 2006 given that basic voice dialing has been around for probably over a decade.
Don't knock it until you try it - btw, I only use it over BT headset.
