Cory Pforzheimer, a spokesman for Yahoo, said the Sunnyvale company looked at all the technology for doing voice recognition on cell phones before settling on vlingo. "We have many search and voice recognition experts at Yahoo and they were just blown away," he said.
Sounds great if it works as well as Yahoo are saying. They should add it for computer users as well.

We were at CTIA (where they made the announcement) and also attended the press conference Yahoo held while there and one of my writers immediately downloaded a copy to play with and seemed pretty impressed by it. He is going to keep playing with it over the next few weeks to see how much it can "learn" but thus far, he seemed pretty satisfied with the first impression.
