Nuance originally released their Dragon for Email BlackBerry app back in April of last year. The app lets you simply dictate emails to friends and family without typing anything. You just open the messages app and dictate the message. They claim it is five times faster than typing but I really only found it to be more of a convenience factor when it works.
The app is relatively good and FREE but is hampered by odd limitations on supported devices, networks, and locations. Nuance sent us an email that Dragon for Email is now available to Canadian users but is still limited to the BlackBerry 8310, 8320, 8900, 9000, 9530, 9550, 9630, and the 9700. In other words it is missing practically half of RIM’s flagship devices including the 9800, 9650, 9670, etc. The app is also limited to the following carriers:
- Nextel (USA)
- Rogers (Canada)
- Sprint (USA)
- T-Mobile US
- TELUS (GSRM)
I am not sure what exactly is forcing Nuance to be so overly picky in their device and network support but I have shot them back an email asking for clarification. If you happen to have both a supported device and are on a supported network you can pick up Dragon for Email here in App World.
