    In the latest screen shots, you can clearly see that the Google search widget supports voice search, a feature of 1.6 if I'm not mistaken?

    Do you think it mean we could expect a 1.6 upgrade for the galaxy?

    The one thing that annoys me about Samsung is the lack of information about future upgrades...

    That Google bar (on the Behold) looks just like mine (stock 1.5). The voice search plugin is on the market, I've had it pretty much since day one.

    I can't find anything on the market like that.

    This is the stock search bar directly from the Official Google Mobile Blog:

    and this is the search bar from the Behold 2:

    I don't see a difference.

    So it seems I was dead wrong on the subject...
    I thought that the Google Voice Search was added in the 1.6 version, and it seems it was already added in the 1.5 version...

    So now the question is where can I get it?

    After downloading and installing the 2 files I've only received error messages for both functions on my Galaxy XXIH7.

    What's weird about the whole thing is that I used to have the voice search before I updated the firmware. After updating I could no longer find it on the market.. and now that I've found the installation files.. they don't work for me.
