Since launching Vlingo 1.0 in June of 2008 as a free application, an announcement today has created a great deal of excitement for many BlackBerry users.
Today Vlingo announced they have made a significant investment to bring out Vlingo 3.0 with a great deal of new functionality including hands free support.
This also means that we had to make the business decision to charge for some of this enhanced functionality. The full feature set will be available for a fee, but we will continue our tradition of offering most of the functionality as a free version of the best speech recognition software in the mobile industry. The free version of Vlingo 3.0 includes everything except the full ability to send text and email messages. See the matrix below.
Vlingo 3.0 adds support for lots of corporate BlackBerry accounts as well as more devices including BlackBerry® Storm™, BlackBerry® Bold™, BlackBerry® Curve 8900 ™ and BlackBerry Pearl Flip.
And we have good news for existing users: if you already have Vlingo 2.0, you can keep using Vlingo 2.0 for free for the life of your device. Of course, if you want to stay on Vlingo 2.0, you’ll miss the new hands-free features. But it’s up to you!”
