Will Samsung Be Launching A Voice And Gesture Controlled Tablet?

Will Samsung Be Launching A Voice And Gesture Controlled Tablet?

Intuitive devices, rumored to be released, will allow users to operate them using speech and motion commands.

Recently, Laptop Magazine interviewed Ryan Bidan, Samsung’s Product Marketing Manager, to provide hints on what tablet and mobile innovations we can expect to see from the tech company in the coming months. Bidan reveals that Samsung is experimenting with voice and motion control to be rolled out on its devices, explaining that:

We’re going to see a lot of work happen around things like the S Pen, voice, and the evolution of touch around 3D gestures, so free space type gestures, as well as facial recognition. We’re talking about interacting with your device without having to physically interact with it.

In addition, Bidan states that due to the success of the stylus pen as featured on the current Galaxy Note smartphone, the pen could also be included in upcoming tablet models:

I think a pen interface continues to make a lot of sense across a number of screen sizes…the larger is more obvious of those. That’s about as specific as I can be without announcing a product.
