ABSTRACT
The article reports that mobile speech recognition company Vlingo added an application to Apple's iPhone. Such application allows mobile phone users to speak instructions rather than type. Users can dial contacts, access applications, update their Facebook and Twitter information, and search the web through voice commands. In June 2008, Vlingo introduced such application for Research In Motion's BlackBerry smartphones.
