Motorola Challenges Siri With Android Voice Actions, Claims Victory (Video)

Motorola has released a series of videos using several of its devices to take on iPhone’s Siri application.  And though Siri might be amusing to talk to at times, Moto is touting that the voice actions on several of their devices takes the title.  Check out the video demos below of the Atrix 2, Photon 4G and Moto Electrify as they go toe to toe with Siri.  Voice actions included sending text messages, asking for driving directions and loading up specific web pages.  The Motorola devices beat the iPhone out every time.  But hey, if you want to know if there is life on other planets, we’re sure Siri will offer up something entertaining.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.

    Are the three videos supposed to be different ads?

      Yes, one shows the Atrix 2, another the Photon 4G and the last the Motorola Electrify which is a Photon 4G for Canada.

    Oh, just different phone models…. clever.

    These are just simulated. It even says that in the end of each video.

      unlike the *sequences shortened and steps removed on the “look how simple it is” iphone ads?

    Would be nice if they told us what app they were using.  Is it just Google voice?
