Nuance, ZTE to Collaborate on Portfolio of Voice-Enabled Android Devices
Nuance Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) and ZTE Corporation today announced a multi-year collaboration where Nuance's voice capabilities will be integrated as part of a new portfolio of ZTE Android devices worldwide. The result will be a diverse set of mobile applications and devices that foster a more natural, human interaction between people and their ZTE phone – in more than 25 languages. Among those applications is ZTE's new Car Mode application unveiled at CES 2013 in Las Vegas.
Car Mode integrates Nuance's powerful voice capabilities to let users speak to stay connected to people and the content they love, without bringing additional manual-visual distractions into the car. Taking advantage of Nuance's automotive-grade voice technology and expertise, ZTE's Car Mode application is embedded within the device to provide people with reliable, always available hands-free, eyes-free access to the phone functions that are used the most while driving, such as making phone calls, reading text messages and accessing music – no network or data connection required and in noisy automotive environments.
