Looking for prior art dated before 2010 regarding technology that determines that data being received at a mobile phone is speech if an accelerometer in the phone moves in a certain direction.

The prior art could be non patent or patent literature. I'm more interested to see how much has been published regarding this type of technology.

    Are you looking for prior art to a specific patent? It's difficult to know what could be prior art without seeing the exact wording of the claims. – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Oct 1 '12 at 16:28
  • Not looking for a specific patent. Trying to get an idea of whether there was existing technology regarding this concept prior to 2010. – Maria Oct 1 '12 at 17:26

It's a very vague question that can be best answered by a google search restricting results by date. I found 136000 results for "voice recognition phone accelerometer" that were prior to 2010. I found a rather interesting article on research directions in 2006: http://machinedesign.com/article/smarter-than-your-average-pushbutton-0607

In general, I'd have to say that this was a major topic of research for many cell makers.
