Droid 2 Bug Allows Voice Actions Even When Locked

This isn’t the happiest piece of news for Motorola Droid 2 owners out there, but folks have discovered that a bug exists allowing users to execute Google Voice Actions on the phone, even when it’s locked and a passcode is activated. All you have to do is hold the “search” softkey or button for four seconds and Google Voice Actions will be activated, without any feedback to the user. After it’s activated, you’ll be able to command it to dial a number or a contact. It doesn’t seem to be able to be replicated on phones from other manufacturers, so perhaps it’s something to do with the Motorola BLUR user interface. Check out a video demonstrating this flaw after the jump.
