Voice and mobile phones go together like ice cream and cake, so it’s no surprise to see that BubbleMotion has scored $14 million in second-round funding for its voice-to-text-message voice SMS service for carriers. It’s one of several players racing to deliver services that bypass the mobile keyboard to make everything — from finding a restaurant to sending a text message — easier. The service drives up text message use revenue for carriers, but BubbleMotion still has to educate the market on its services still playing in a crowded market.

  4. Stacey, no worries since it’s a common misconception. We’re actually the ones doing voice-to-text-messaging (since it requires speech recognition), but I think both methods will find their niches for different purposes/use cases.
