iPhone speech recognition

The iPhone is attracting many developers wishing to add its next cool application. Nuance recently introduced vsearch - a voice search application. Similar to Vlingo's recent application on the blackberry.

The official video from Nuance

I believe the following video demonstrate better the hands free aspect of search.

Is it a gimmick or will people actually use it? What happens when there are speech recognition mistakes? Are there such mistakes? I like much more the unofficial video demonstrating the yahoo/vlingo voice search.

If someone has some statistics on voice base search, I will be glad to receive it.
