Vlingo puts voice recongition on phones

Vlingo voice recognition

A limited beta has launched for Vlingo, software which enables voice input on mobile phones. When a Vlingo-ready text box appears, users can then select it and speak the text they want out loud, instead of typing it in via a keypad. The software further integrates with existing phone applications, allowing users to do things like compose their text messages via speech, or search for businesses with commands like "pizza restaurants in Boston, Massachusetts."

Vlingo is currently free, but the beta is limited to the latter "FIND" service, which additionally provides maps and contact details. The software is also restricted to select Sprint phones at the moment, but all major American carriers should eventually be supported.
