To really top everything Nuance claims it will help you type emails 5 times as fast. I don’t really buy that but in my tests it was quite convenient.
You can find the Dragon for Email app free in App World at this link. Sadly it is only currently available for the BlackBerry Tour, BlackBerry Storm and BlackBerry Storm2 on the Verizon network; the BlackBerry Bold series and BlackBerry Curve series on the AT&T network; and, the BlackBerry Curve series and the BlackBerry Bold on the T-Mobile network.
