BlueAnt and Vlingo have come together to launch a new smartphone app that will be integrated with the latest BlueAnt headsets and speakerphones.

LAS VEGAS -- BlueAnt has partnered with Vlingo to come up with a new BlueAnt app that will let BlueAnt owners use their headset or speakerphone for voice commands like voice search, voice dialing, replying to texts and emails, updating Facebook or Twitter, and even leaving yourself "note to self" messages via voice to text. You can launch certain apps with your voice as well. Feature availability depends on the platform, as the app will be available for iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry. The app will support English, French, Spanish, German, and Italian at launch in Q1 2011.
