The vlingo 2.0 open beta has been expanded to everyone who’s interested! Vlingo is currently looking for active BlackBerry users to test the latest features of our voice-powered application, including social networking, Web search, messaging and more.

To participate, you need to meet the following criteria:
  • Have a Pearl, Curve or 88xx
  • Are interested in using voice to interact with your BlackBerry
  • Live in the UK, US or Canada
All beta testers will be asked to include an e-mail address so that vlingo can contact you for future studies. We will never sell or provide your contact information to any other company.

UK Users
The UK beta program begins on Thursday, October 16 and will run for approximately 1 month. Please help us to improve the UK English version of vlingo by downloading and testing the application! Vlingo learns over time. The more UK users we have, the better speech recognition will be for UK English speakers.

US and Canada Users
The US and Canadian beta program begins on Thursday, October 16 and runs for one week.

How to Download
If you are interested in participating, download the beta directly from your BlackBerry smartphone.

Note: If you took part in the vlingo 2.0 closed beta, you do not need to re-download the beta link. You will get an upgrade notice within the application.

vlingo Survey
While users can use theSend Feedback feature in Vlingo 2.0, we are also conducting a survey of current users to better understand what is working well about the software and how we should evolve the software in future versions. If you live in the US or Canada and have been using vlingo for at least 2 weeks, please help us learn how to improve it!

Everyone who completes the survey will be entered in a drawing to win an 8GB iPod touch or one of 3 $50 gift certificates.
The survey will take about 15-20 minutes, and is located here:
