    He 'particularly enjoys the voicemail transcription service' because it's hilariously inaccurate.

    But it's good that you guys are getting Voice in Europe. It's a great service, outside of the visual voicemail thing that fails horribly at transcribing messages.

    So how about the voice input feature on Android (2.2? and 2.3)? It works in differrent languages and can, at times, be remarkably accurate and fast. It's a two-sided sword though because it sometimes is wildly inaccurate too. I use it every day for short emails, SMS, satnav input, etc. etc.
    Is that voice input feature part of 'Google Voice'? And now they are going to release the rest of Google Voice's functionality? Or what?

    Great but does it mean mainland Europe or will Western Europe be included?

    Yeah, a definition of what constitutes 'Europe' for Google would be nice. Is it geographical Europe? Up to the Ural mountains? Or the political EU, European Union (27 countries)? Or the financial

    If Europe gets GV before Canada, I'm done with Google permanently. I'll trade in my phone for a Blackberry, start using Bing, and boycott their advertisers!
