any one has words on status of this: "Works with Google Voice for FREE calls to the USA and Canada through the end of 2012 " we're already approaching end of 2012.I'm using the OBI 100 with Google voice and it works great. Just one question: Why does Google let you make free calls? There are no ads that you have to listen to on calls. Is it just out of the goodness of their heart? Can't see how they make money off this, unless it's just good publicity.

They are collecting tons of voice data and transcription quality feedback with this service. This is key to their voice-based user interface, especially in mobile. Google "Google Now" and check it out. It's amazingly good on the new Nexus 4 phone and the Nexus tablets. Well ahead of Apple's Siri.
