    Big companies liek Google don't get rejected. They are on a higher level than 3rd party companies as you can hear on the keynote where they announce the 3G.

    Good point. Maybe that's why it's being held back?

    The google app is already able to search the contacts, as well as Say Who. So, there would be no further reason for this to be held accountable for rejection...

    It appears that it may be true that the update to Google Mobile App was not approved. I just checked the Google site previously linked and there is no longer mention of the cool and useful voice recognition features or any pending updates.

    It's in the store right now. It doesn't say anything about voice search in the description, but I just downloaded it and it does accept voice commands.

    Why doesn't it bring up contacts when you voice search? I can only find contacts when I type the search.
