Release day sprint Pre owner here. I was testing the google voice activated search with Droid X in a verizon store, and was very impressed with the voice recognition. I hope the Pre3 voice recognition works as well. Motorola's crystal talk technology is impressive, and maybe that is contributing to the Droid X voice recognition performance. I have read that Google's voice recognition work is also a significant contribution to voice recognition progress. I did test several phone brand in the verizon store, and the droid X was significantly better at correctly interpreting soft spoken words.
