Okay, so voice communication with a smartphone isn't anything new, but Nuance is hoping to take things up a notch. The company has already begun active work with chip companies to create a chipset that would allow phones and tablets to wake themselves up from sleep mode and start answering your voice-based questions.

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster decided to put the two to the test in a Google [...]
