What would be pros and cons of headsets versus speaker phones for in-car hands-free phone operation? Are there other solutions as well? Are features such as reading and dictating text-messages come built-in the device, come as an app, or can be both?

Primary phone in question has Icecream Sandwich installed, but are there any culprits against using older versions of the OS?

Hmmm. I would actually VTC as not constructive... – Liam W Dec 21 '12 at 18:24
@theUg I'd suggest you take a look at our FAQ. As Liam correctly pointed out, this question falls into the category "not constructive": questions which lead to long discussions, asking opinions, being overly broad, polls, etc. are not welcome here, sorry. This kind of question is better fit for a forum. – Izzy Dec 21 '12 at 18:59
I think this is an okay question for this site. It's asking the comparative (and presumably objective) differences between possible solutions. It's not asking for a recommendation for a particular solution. – Al E. Dec 21 '12 at 19:50
@AlEverett But I think that is still a discussion, and not really Android-specific (as yes, reading out and dictating text messages are features of the OS for some devices/ROMs and there are apps for it as well). – Matthew Read Dec 21 '12 at 22:06
