Today in Mobile

Google today held a press conference in San Francisco to announce two new apps that couple its back-end infrastructure with its Android OS. Chome2Phone enables users to sync content between their desktop browser and mobile devices, while Voice Action allows users to speak to perform a dozen functions on their handsets. As Om notes, Google is making it clearer than ever that mobile and the cloud are on a collision course — and that voice will increasingly be the way we navigate that cloud.
