Yes Android is at least doing it and I commend them for that. But what the video above showed and what Android does is not even on the same playing field. Android looks like broken sticks again compared to the video showing what's purportedly on the iPhone 5.
1) that video is a made up concept vid. of COURSE it would be perfect. If you want to see something really cool, watch Microsoft's visions of the future videos sometime. Amazing concept work there.
2) Native Google Voice translation takes maybe 2 seconds. Unless Apple made some serious progress on compressing data and/or massive boost to internal storage their implementation will need a data connection as well to have some heavy lifting done by the cloud. Even FlexT9 (Which uses the Dragon diction engine) still connects to the internet to translate.
Speaking of, Nuance, Vlingo, and "start talking" all offer voice command driven options on android, with a varying level of success. For example, start talking is the best at composing status updates/text messages (accurate and fast) while Vlingo is amazing for things like the second option shown in the video (a google search).
The really BIG issue about most of these programs is that they are battery drains. 10:1 that's where Apple will have the biggest innovations. Voice tech is VERY good already.
