The new LG VX4500 for Verizon looks completely unremarkable. It doesn't have a camera or a huge display or any new high tech gadgets. So why do you care? Because it has voice recognition — speaker independent voice recognition. Which means you can call contacts, dial phone numbers, check your next appointment — all without ever training the phone to recognize your voice. If you don't believe us, Mobile Burn even includes an audio file of it working in their review. There are a few applications that add this same functionality to Microsoft phones, which made us believe that it must require a huge amount of processing power. Either the VX4500 has an awesome processor which is being wasted on a boring phone or someone has figured out how a trick to doing voice recognition on the cheap, so to speak.
