LG takes aim at Apple’s Siri, Samsung’s S Voice with ‘Quick Voice’

LG Quick Voice Siri

Samsung saw Apple’s Siri voice assistant on the iPhone 4S as a potential threat and was quick to respond. Growing pains aside, the company’s “S Voice” solution brings some Siri-like functionality to the Galaxy S III and it can be quite useful in a number of situations. LG on Wednesday announced that it too will bring a Siri competitor to Android devices. Dubbed “Quick Voice,” LG’s solution will launch later this month with somewhat limited functionality. It will only have access to 11 apps including email, phone and calendar, though it will also be able to search the web for weather, stock quotes and other information. Quick Voice will arrive in a software update on the Optimus Vu “phablet” this month, and will be added to the Optimus LTE 2 in July. LG’s machine-translated press release follows below. More →
