Playbook keyboard - microphone for voice to text entry

Maybe I am spoiled having an iphone and cheap android phones but it would be nice if I could click on a microphone on the keyboard and speak the text I wish to type.  I searched and did not find any way to add this functionality.


I use to have Blackberry phones but work dumped Blackberry for Apple with the users decided Apple was a superior experience.   I can not afford Apple products but have to say buying a Playbook is a questionable decision so far.  Maybe OS 10 will help.  I do know having a mike on the keyboard for text entry would help.
