"Conversay has announced a second deal to bring its speech recognition software to an embedded Linux project, this time with PalmPalm technologies, developers of the Tynux embedded Linux variant, which plans to introduce a Linux-based smart phone."

"PalmPalm's smart phone is built on another prominent player in the embedded Linux space: TrollTech's Qt/Embedded, a toolkit based on the same software that forms the foundation of the KDE desktop. The company has also partnered with Opera Software, which produces the Opera web browser. When completed, the phone will, according to PalmPalm, provide total voice control of its cellphone, PDA, MP3, and digital video capabilities. The company plans to demo the unit next week at the Embedded Systems Conference in San Francisco."
