Default iPhone's new Siri vs. Vlingo Plus for BlackBerry?

Please Login to Remove!

The free app from RIM I'm most eagerly awaiting to try out is Vlingo Plus, normally $19.99.

The description sounds a lot like the Siri ads, saying in part:
Try saying "Text John; What's up?" or "find italian restaurants" or even "update Facebook; I'm on a boat!"
And they post a review snippet from the Wall Street Journal - who generally aren't impressed with "techie cool" stuff, just things that really work:
“Vlingo will do whatever you've told it to do” - Wall Street Journal
Has anyone used Vlingo or Siri - or preferably both and can comment on how good or bad Vlingo is and how it compares to Siri?
