Vlingo Corporation today debuted a new application for BlackBerry smartphones from Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX: RIM), offering the industry's first complete voice-powered interface based entirely on vlingo's breakthrough speech recognition technology. Available free-of-charge*, vlingo's BlackBerry application lets users send emails and text messages, search the Web, open applications (BlackBerry® Calendar, BlackBerry® Maps, etc.), dial their phones, look up contacts and even send notes to themselves - all with the power of voice.
"Just a few months ago, vlingo was selected to voice-enable Yahoo! oneSearch™, which showed the world just how quick and easy mobile Web search can be with the power of voice," said Dave Grannan, CEO of vlingo. "Vlingo takes this technology beyond Web search into everyday applications that are now instantly more usable and easier to find because you only need to think about one button and a few spoken words. Vlingo believes that we can immediately improve the way every person interacts with their wireless device and the BlackBerry platform is the perfect place to start our aggressive expansion strategy here in the U.S. and abroad."
