    I bet Viki is the new voice control for BB10...it just makes sense. Look at the background of the website...very BB. Probably one of the big announcements for the new OS.

    i agree 100%
    If it is a quality voice control assistant, why would "Viki" and RIM not work together to make one voice app. We have seen the native voice controls, but now it seems there is the 3rd party Viki, they could have simply integrated the two.

    This is an important feature for me as I am super slow typing.
    I mentioned in another post that I didn't like the name viki.
    I vote we change her name to Bea Bea.

    Isn't Viki (Virtual Interface Kinetic Intelligence) the main robot in iRobot? Love that movie. Couldn't resist.

    LOL. I just posted this too. Great minds. I love your caption.

    Here is a picture of VIKI from the sci-fi movie I, Robot. She was originally created to help humans but took over "for their own protection". bwaaaaaaaa

    Maybe I can program her to say, "Wake your azz up, stop hitting the snooze button"

    That's true. I posted earlier asking why would they have 2 separate voice control apps, the native and Viki, but maybe the native app is Viki..

    Can't wait to try this out on BB10, but like most voice assistant/recognition software/apps, it'll be a while before we "users" can have a real fluid conversation with it.

    Slowly but surely.

    Ok someone who is technical explain this to me, it says in this vid they are using AI and that robot thing they got, is responding to commands and music? This is basically the core tech that is going in to V1k1? So this thing is actually thinking to some degree? That is kinda scary stuff. Noticed that vid was posted in May 2011, so it's had almost 2 years of development after this vid was made.

    Brace yourselves BB nation, sh1t just got real!

    It would be nice if the long press action could be remapped, though I'm not going to get my hopes up.
