Dragon Dictation (link opens iTunes), which is based on the desktop Dragon NaturallySpeaking software, lets you do pretty much everything you’d use the iPhone’s keyboard for, but with your voice.

It’s still pending approval at the moment, but should be out either very soon or something tomorrow, at which point it’ll be free for a limited time. LOL! [Nuance]
