Seeing as there is no dedicated built in microphone and there is only a headphone out jack how can one enable voice input/microphone?1) Perhaps the "headphone out jack" it does have: - is of the kind [4 conductor 3.5mm jack] that would allow using a Speaker/Microphone Adapter ? - can be used with an iphone headset with mic ? - can be used with a Shure Music Phone Adapter / VoicePort Microphone ?2) Perhaps a USB headset/microphone would do the trick?3) Perhaps a Bluetooth headset/microphone would work?I would very much appreciate feedback and ideas from you that already have a Witstech A81-e.This is the major issue stopping me from ordering one myself as I would hate to not be able to use Skype, Google Voice, Google Talk, Google Voice enabled applications etc. as well as just recording voice memoscheersPSYou could try it out with:VoiceMemo [ alternate download ]VoiceTask [ alternate download ]Voice Recorder [ alternate download ]vRecorder [ alternate download ]Recordoid Dictaphone Lite / [ Download here ]Voice Actions for Android Evernote[other Free Voice Record Applications for Android]

I have a Motorola pair of headphones with 4 pins and a mic that came with my last phone. In the tear down pics of the A81E it looks like 4 pins are going into the jack. I'm dying to try it out as soon as I get my device.

Good find, plasmadis! I look forward to hearing how it went once you've received your device.

aksoutherland over @ JT's World Forum tested and posted the following:
To clarify a bit, I am using the Jabra BT8010. It is a stereo headset.I was able to pull down and test the 4 following apps.VoiceMemoVoiceTaskVoice RecordervRecorderEach one I was able to install. Each of them also showed the same behavior, they each locked up the tablet. I had to pull the power to reset the device. I stopped after that as there appears to be something wrong with the BT stack. It appears to not like input. But that is just my 2 cents worth.Let me know if you have any additional questions.
So I guess unless there is some kind of an update to the bluetooth stack by Witstech, I will need to start looking for a different device; IFA Berlin will be interesting to follow from Thursday onwards.
